Bullet Train (Oculus Rift)
Intro: Bullet Train is the latest VR experience from Epic Games, creators of the popular Showdown VR demo. Staying true to form, Epic puts you in the middle of the action: Use motion controls in the role of an agent undergoing an infiltration simulation set inside a modern train station. Master the art of teleportation, time manipulation, and close-quarters combat to blast through resistance forces. Thanks to Unreal Engine technology and the Oculus Touch motion controllers, you can physically interact with an array of weapons, from guns to grenades to missiles, and even feel them through haptic feedback.
Review: Bullet Train is not a game based on the fast Japanese Shinkansen Bullet Train, it is a game featuring bullets (lots of them) and a train. But you are not on the train for long anyway. From the makers of the stunning Showdown VR demo comes an Oculus Touch powered demo that sees you put right into the action of a shootout with numerous enemies.
In this short but amazing demo you will learn to teleport, learn to shoot handguns and rifles and even get to chuck a grenade or two, all wrapped up with a small boss fight at the end of it. But that is not all as you can also kill enemies with their own bullets! Simply pick it out of the air while being fired towards you and throw it back at them. If that doesn’t make you want to play this already, nothing will.
Verdict: The only problem with the little demo is that it is too good and too short. It leaves you wanting more, it leaves you wanting to explore. I would buy a full game of this in a heartbeat, whether it used the touch controllers or not.
