Description: From Ninja Theory, creators of Heavenly Sword and DmC: Devil May Cry comes DEXED, an endless on-rails VR shooter where DEXterity is a must. Target and shoot flurries of enemies with two blasters, one launching ice to destroy fire and the other shooting fire to destroy ice. Journey through beautifully realized worlds and hone your skills in Challenge Mode before taking on the endless battle of Arcade Mode. Gain multipliers by tagging as many enemies as possible before releasing a barrage of missiles and use your shield to defend against incoming attacks. For a more chilled experience, admire and explore the diverse worlds of DEXED free of enemies in Zen Mode. With global and friends leaderboards to top, DEXED is the home of arcade-style shooting in VR.
Review: If you love your rail-shooters DEXED might be one for you. While hard to describe it is a game with two guns and only two types of enemies. While that sounds like it would be easy to play things soon get crazy and with multiple enemies on screen it is hard to shoot the right one with the right gun (you have one ice and one fire gun, then the enemies are the same elements.) The good news is you do get some good options from the main menu and the game looks amazing. But it is only the endless arcade mode that offers any real value because using the other modes you will see all DEXED has to offer in less than a single hour. But I for one love it and despite only one made being worth continuous goes I still think it is worth the money.
