Review: What is the best way to get more sales for an unfinished game? Make it VR compatible! But trust me when I say this, this game is NOT VR friendly at all in fact, it is a mess of a game that not only feels unfinished, but it is also pretty much unplayable in VR. From terrible nausea-inducing camera spins to the diabolical controls, this game is a mess from start to finish. Then just to sink this game once and for all it costs £7.19! This is one game best left on the bottom of the ocean floor.
