Description: Code51:Mecha Arena is a wasteland-style mech arena game. As a pilot, you put on your VR device and drive your giant mech, sitting in the cockpit and fight your foes – mechs driven by rival players. Unlike most VR shooter games, you won’t need to stand and move around. Simply sit in your chair just like the way you do in a mech cockpit, and wear your VR device like a helmet, you will be brought into the immersive battleground and enjoy fighting with other players.
Review: If you love movies like Pacific Rim or dream of becoming a Power Ranger and controlling a giant robot, this is the game for you. Being able to boost into the sky in the multiplayer arena and take someone down feels amazing and while nowhere near as much fun as the PSVR game in the same genre RIGS it is still an OK game at times. Code51: Mecha Arena biggest problem is the lack of options and upgrades. Nothing gets any more exciting than it always is and the lack of depth will mean you will get bored of this game very quickly. While the multiplayer does save it a bit, I still think it is worth waiting for a sale before making a purchase. Get this game for the right price and you might well enjoy it a lot more than I did.
