Description: BEACHHEAD 2020 – IT’S NOT JUST A GAME, IT’S THE FUTURE OF REALITY. 20 years ago, BEACH HEAD 2000 changed the gaming paradigm by bringing a new gaming experience to life. 20 years later, the original game creators are ready to do it again.
Review: I remember playing Beach Head 2000 in the arcade with its crazy pull-down Helmet shooter. But here we are in VR reviewing ‘BeachHead 2020’ and the good news is the game looks much better and overall is a much better game than the original. Once again, you are only using a single weapon turret gun and you need to take down anything that moves. It looks great and is a game anyone can play thanks to the simplistic controls. But sadly it is not a game that is worth even half the current £15.49. Sure, it’s a good game and well made, but it lacks content, it lacks variety for a game at that price point. If you see this on sale for a fiver or less maybe give it a go, but I wouldn’t pay much more than that.
