Description: Get ready to raze castles and conquer your rivals in CastleStorm VR, an exciting new take on the tower-defence action-RPG phenomenon! Experience CastleStorm, a super genre mashup of 2D physics destruction mashed with a tower defence brawler, in full VR that catapults you onto the battlefield. Throw yourself into the heat of battle as you pit knights, soldiers, archers and even griffins against formidable foes in castle vs. castle combat!
CastleStorm VR takes full advantage of the PlayStation®VR and its amazingly immersive technical capabilities to place you directly onto the field of battle, where you’ll see, feel and hear every whizzing arrow, battle cry, horse gallop and ballista shot as though you are really in the midst of combat. Get medieval in a whole new way with CastleStorm VR!
Review: Strategy games are a genre that always looks good in virtual reality and CastleStorm VR is no different. Played in a medieval strategy, side-on, cartoon style of graphics you overlook the entire battlefield of both sides. The game does have a certain Angry Birds style to it, especially with the main ballista weapon. The rest is all strategy with troops and additional power weapons useable by the ballista.
While essentially 2D looking in style the battleground is 3D and looks pretty deep which gives you a great sense of overlooking the battlefield rather than just playing a normal game. This game soon drags you into it and will have you fighting for your castle in no time at all. With so many different styles of gameplay and options while in battle, this is a game that you won’t get bored of easily. Plus there is plenty of medieval humour to keep you amused.
