Description: Contagion VR: Outbreak is a first-person shooter built from the ground up exclusively for VR. Fully immerse yourself in a world initially familiar to you, and witness its transformation into something much darker as it rapidly changes right before your eyes.
Assume the role of one of our many characters and experience their stories first hand that would shape them in the mould of who they would eventually become. The end of the world as we know it is filled with horrors the likes of which were never fathomed, but in all the darkness lies a beacon of light, tales of heroism and sacrifices made so others could carry on. Explore highly detailed environments, search for scarce resources and see if you’ve got what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse!
Review: While playing Contagion VR: Outbreak you can’t help but feel it was loved at the start of the game, then for some reason the development team kind of gave up on it. By halfway through the game I could have sworn I was playing a different game! Obviously this is going to be compared to Arizona Sunshine, but I don’t think it is as good as that and so with that thought in mind, the £15.49 price tag suddenly seems way too much. There is just about enough content here to justify that price tag, but the quality of it is what puts me off recommending it at full price. Just wait for a sale and grab a bargain, or just pay the money and enjoy a good Zombie shooter and survival game. Just don’t moan to me when you feel it wasn’t worth paying the full asking price, because it really isn’t.
