Review: If you ask me the strategy genre is a much-overlooked category in VR and ‘Eternal Starlight’ shows it can be pretty great. While I couldn’t get on with the hand-tracking option on the Quest once I changed back to the motion controllers everything felt a lot more responsive. With its little ships and adjustable game size, the game feels strangely immersive as if you are controlling a space battle in god mode. Sure, the graphics are a little basic, but they really don’t need to be any better. While I do wish it was a bit cheaper I still highly recommend it. If you like space battle strategy games, this is an absolute must.
