Description: Ragnarok. The End of Days. Something has gone wrong with the cosmic cycle, leaving in its wake a world that refuses to be reborn. It is up to you to step back in time, filling the role of Odin as you relive the apocalypse of the gods, and try to repair all of reality.
Built from the ground up for the HTC Vive, Eye of Odin is a tower defense-inspired VR game focused on fast-paced first-person action set in the backdrop of an apocalypse gone horribly wrong. Features an immersive story based on Norse mythology and a branching mission campaign, unlocking new challenges, levels, weapons and more as the story unfolds. You may also compete in the Endless mode challenge, facing off against a never-ending tide of enemies for high score bragging rights.
Review: Eye of Odin is your classic magic throwing tower defence game with a few good things like traps to put down to stop the bad guys from reaching their goal. While a little basic in terms of graphics you can still find yourself getting into the game and even early on it becomes a real battle for survival. There are 18 missions to do and each one sees your stones (that you need to protect) put somewhere else. So it’s the same game over and over in the same theme, just a little harder. It’s not a terrible game at all, in fact, I rather enjoyed playing it. But it’s not worth half the £10.99 asking price if you ask me, If it was a quarter of that I might be inclined to give it a go, otherwise I don’t think you will get your money’s worth here.
