Dragonflight (Oculus Rift)
Intro: Engage in pitched combat piloting a spectacular dragon through worlds of medieval fantasy. Dragonflight features massive, destructible environments, fast-paced combat with up to twenty enemies swarming the skies around you, ancient castles teeming with archers, and lost wizard towers shrouded in mist. Dragonflight also features a VR mode – ride your dragon through showers of flaming arrows, or dodge trees as you fly low over a fantasy landscape, hiding from enemies arrayed against you. Dragonflight includes unique combinations of game dynamics – acrobatic flight compliments stealthly subterfuge, as you dodge from cloud to cloud, sneaking up on fortifications too large to approach out in the open.
Verdict: Dragonflight is a stunning ride on the back of a dragon. Anyone who has ever wanted to ride on a real dragon will instantly love this and to be fair there is a lot to love. Besides the gorgeous dragons, there is also some cool scenery to destroy and some great looking lands to fly over. But… And believe you and me it’s a big old but. This is not a game besides some sort of random score system and the odd dragon to kill to move on. 99.9% of this game can be enjoyed simply by enjoying the dragon war going on in front of you! It’s more a guided tour with fireball hands. If that wasn’t bad enough the price is almost too much for even the biggest of fantasy fans to justify. If you can grab this for a quarter of its current price I would suggest snapping it up for something nice to see. Just don’t get it expecting any sort of gameplay because there simply isn’t any.
