Description: Re-live the early days of space flight in Go For Launch: Mercury, the first in a series of games exploring the early days of space flight. With full integration for either a standard computer monitor or full VR via a headset GFL: Mercury will take you on the ultimate adventure into space and let you re-live the exact experiences of those early pioneers, the Mercury Seven.

Review: Let’s get one thing straight about ‘Go For Launch: Mercury’. You are not paying £7.19 for the amount of content this experience offers because it is nowhere near that amount. But you are paying for the authenticity and accuracy of the original experience which was the Alan Shepard Mercury NASA mission. So how accurate is it? The truth is I have no idea, but it seems to be lacking a lot of things and since this project was last updated years ago I think this is pretty much all you get. If you REALLY love the subject matter you might well enjoy this experience, but personally, I don’t and found it too short, boring and hardly interactive. It looks good and feels authentic, but I can’t say for sure how true to the original scene it is. At least there is a free demo to play before you buy the whole game which could be well worth a look.
