Description: Speed through challenging race levels using grappling hooks in VR. Defense Contract is built for virtual reality and provides a unique and exciting experience aimed at VR veterans but still enjoyable to those without their “VR legs” for short periods.
Defense Contract will appeal to players looking for more intense, fast paced VR content. While it does contain a level editor that is surprisingly fun and low-key, the majority of the content is exhilarating, superhero-feeling racing game play.
Review: I feel calling ‘Defense Contract’ an ‘utter sh1t show’ is not an understatement at all, in fact…I would say that is being kind! This is supposed to be some sort of racing game in which you race around skyscrapers using a grappling hook to turn. Even the fact that you can build your own levels doesn’t save this game from a hammering. It looks crap, the sound effects suck, but the gameplay is pretty much unplayable. From the high levels of nausea to the terrible psychics of the grappling hook swing. This is best off being left well alone until it becomes free or gets a VERY serious update.
