Description: Armor Clash VR is an RTS game of modern warfare. In the virtual reality environment, you can build a base, command units above the sky. You will find it is also fun to play an RTS game in VR. Armor Clash VR is only for VR gameplay, its non-VR version is Armor Clash, which is run on a standard PC monitor and has different gameplay.
Review: The good news is there is real potential to be seen in Armor Clash VR, the bad news is I don’t feel it is quite there yet and remains feeling unfinished. The game itself feels OK to play if a little too fast-paced for my own enjoyment, I felt the war started ranging when I was still getting setup! I will even go so far as to say that it looks OK, it not amazing, but for the price tag, it really is better (graphically) than you might have thought. But it is the poorly implemented VR element that is the real deal-breaker. It’s nauseating, it doesn’t feel at the right angle of play and just feels more like an afterthought than a made for VR thing. If you see this in a sale and have your VR legs, maybe give it a go, otherwise, I wouldn’t bother with it.
