Description: Arcade-style drone fights in VR! Customize your fighter, arm your battle-hungry drones with awesome weapons and dominate your opponents in epic cage fights set in futuristic arenas. Drone Fighters is built from the ground up with a VR first mindset. The game’s premise is simple enough: think Highlander, with weaponized drones! Yes, there can only be one top Drone Fighter, and whether you’re clashing with the murderous AI that learns your moves as you go, or take on deadly human opponents in exotic locales, you’ve never, ever played anything that requires this level of hand-eye coordination or keeping calm while under fire.
Review: Drone Fighters is an odd game for sure. The main body of the game is a static shooter, but it is also a drone flying simulator. The odd thing is there is no nausea to be had here as you always splay from a static position. While there isn’t a whole not of content here with only 3 main arenas it is a fun shooter with a beat-’em-up style to it. Yeah I know it sounds weird, but as I said it is also fun! £5.19 might have been a good price when there were other players online, but that part of the game is no dead so I would try and grab it for a quid or less. This is an odd game, but it’s worth a look for the right price.
