Review: If you ask me the strategy genre is a much-overlooked category in VR and ‘Eternal Starlight’ shows it can be pretty great. The game feels tight and easy to control, even when it is pretty complicated once you start to get into more advanced features. 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.
