Description: A lone interstellar fleet must travel across a distant and perilous galaxy in the hope of reaching safety. Final Fleet is a roguelike VR space shooter, where players build and control a dwindling fleet of human spacecraft relentlessly pursued by an overwhelming alien force. Raid enemy outposts, hunt resources, upgrade your fleet, and above all: survive.
Review: I have a bit of a found spot for Final Fleet. It looks a bit like a really good version of Nintendo’s Starfox, but sadly it doesn’t have the gameplay of that said game. But it is certainly grand enough with about 50+ missions and some beautiful looking dog fights. But sadly it just doesn’t have the action element quite right. The ships feel as if they are going nowhere and the enemies are often just heading towards you in a straight line meaning the game gets boring far too quickly.
For me, £10.99 is just asking too much for this game and I suggest you wait for a really good sale. You will enjoy this if you get it for the right price, just don’t expect much. Maybe you will enjoy it more than I did, but personally I like my space shooters to be a lot more action-based.
