Review: I have played ‘Catan VR’ on many different systems now including the HTC Vive, but this is by far the most polished of them all. It keeps the same, fun gameplay and of course, there is a wide variety of players to go against. While the single-player of this game against the AI is OK, it is the multiplayer games that really make it come to life and it is also where you will get the most value for money here. Sure, this isn’t the best use of the Oculus Quest, in fact, it doesn’t use any of the 6DOF the quest has, but it is still a great game well worth owing provided you don’t have it on another system.
