Description: GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator, made by Free Lives, the developers of Broforce and Genital Jousting. Featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine, GORN combatants will be able to creatively execute their most violent gladiatorial fantasies in virtual reality. Savagely strike down an infinite supply of poorly-animated opponents with all manner of weapons – from swords, maces, and bows to nunchuks, throwing knives, massive two-handed warhammers or even your blood-soaked bare hands. The only limits to the carnage are your imagination and decency, in the most brutal and savage VR face-smashing game ever produced by man.
Review: GORN is a game about mindless violence and gore, but it delivers it in a cartoon graphics way which does at least make it more fun. I feel this is a game that will divide peoples opinions of it down the middle. Some will say there just isn’t enough content to justify the price and the gameplay is repetitive and samey. But others will look at it and play the game for hundreds of hours, getting a good workout from each gaming session a ‘going for gold’ each time they play it. GORN is a fun game to play for sure, but I feel I am in the former camp and I just didn’t get what made it so good. Sure, it looks nice and runs smooth, but the gameplay itself simply isn’t up to much especially given the high £14.99 price tag. Maybe give this a go in a sale or something, but personally, I don’t recommend paying full price for it, but I am aware that I am in the minority with that opinion.
