Description: Danbai, the heavenly dreamland of warm wind, sea, sand and the sun. The capital of theft, robbery and murder. Everything was under our control. We were brutal and elusive. But nothing lasts forever. After the last of our endeavours, the governors lost their patience. The police have found a way to push us and brought up special forces to deal with us. Most of our people got arrested. I was able to escape with my partner and the money from our last robbery using a lorry. When we were leaving the city the police caught up and stopped us. I was able to get on my bike and drive away while my partner was persuading them. Let the pursuit begin!
Review: Bike Rush seems to tick all the right boxes for a good VR game but falls flat on its face in reality. It is supposed to be a bike-riding, cop shooting action game very much like a GTA mini-game. It looks good I suppose and has all it needs to be a good game. But the first thing you will notice is that this is clearly not made for VR and is incredibly nauseating. The other is that the one and only gun you have is incredibly weak. It feels like you need to do a hundred shots at anything you aim at and the gun reloads every few bullets making it feel rather frustrating. If you can stand the nausea you might get 10 mins of fun here, but I would definitely try and get it on the cheap as it isn’t worth half the current £7.19 asking price.
