Description: Falcon Age is a first-person, single-player action adventure where you’ll play as Ara in her fight to reclaim her cultural legacy in the lost art of falcon hunting against a force of automated colonizers. The game starts on a dying colony planet with its culture destroyed, resourced depleted, and turned into a desert by machine invaders. Ara’s been wrongfully thrown in jail for a minor infraction. While she awaits her fate in a lonely cell, she passes the time by befriending a young falcon. Together they escape and set off on an adventure to help the resistance reclaim their freedom and drive off the invaders.

Review: It is not often I get to say this, but Falcon Age really does bring something new to the world of VR. The gameplay between you and the bird is almost…magical at times and after just a short while feels almost natural. While the lack of different environments is something that could have been better I am more than happy to recommend this game. Sure, it isn’t perfect by any means especially the lacklustre storyline, but once you are willing to let yourself get into this game and ignore its slight flaws you are in for a great time.
