Description: Desert Bus is back and better than ever! The 1998 Penn and Teller cult hit mini-game is coming to virtual reality, so you can fully immerse yourself in the thrilling eight-hour trip from Arizona to Nevada. It’s almost like you’re driving the “wheel” thing!
Review: At the end of the day, ‘Desert Bus VR’ is a totally pointless VR experience in which you are sat on a bus for eight-hours with the same scenery passing by you. But yet…there is a certain charm to this experience that I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe it is the social aspect of it making it a great app to play with friends, or maybe it is the endless peace of desert driving. Whatever it is this app has it. It’s free at least so why not give it a go and see if you can last the whole journey.
