Description: Fine China is a VR ‘you-break-it-you-buy-it’ simulator for the HTC Vive. Put on your oversized backpack and have to make your way through an antique store. The faster you reach the register, the higher your score, but be careful not to break too much! Alternatively, let out your inner hooligan in Destruction mode where you do as much damage as possible in a set amount of time.

The game is meant for room-scale and uses the WalkAbout locomotion system which allows you to rotate around your play area, independent of your position in-game, so you never run out of the room. In the game you wear the backpack by placing your controller behind you in your belt or back pocket, so either a belt or pants are required to play the game. I’d recommend trying the free demo, which represents the finished game, but with limited content.

Review: One of the best things about virtual reality is that it lets you do real-world things that you otherwise might not have done (without getting arrested). So what about breaking all the things in a museum, or in a shop? Just chucking them, dropping them and generally behaving like a bull in a China shop. This is what Fine China lets you do and I have to say it is fun…for a little while at least. Then you soon start to realise how shallow and limited this game really is. But for £2.09 I think this is worth a look, provided that breaking things is something you find fun.
