Description: Follow the story of Jake Higgins, a famous anthropologist, who is thrown deep into the emerald and impenetrable Amazonian rain forest – the green hell. What you discover will be worse than what you fought so hard against to survive. Find yourself stranded in a dangerous jungle, surrounded by predators with only a trusty smartwatch, backpack, and the survival guide, so craft away! VR makes crafting even more realistic as you need to find the right elements and put them together in a specific way to make tools, spears, and shelter – all by hand! Watch your vitals and discover herbs with their medical potential to stay healthy. Hunt wild animals to secure the next meal and defend yourself with a bow and arrow – work on your aim and level up your skill. With mechanics adjusted to virtual reality, Green Hell VR: Quest Edition is a truly immersive and demanding game – Find out how long you can stay alive.
Review: ‘Green Hell VR’ is a jungle-based survival game in which you will be making a camp from scratch, defending yourself against the jungle creatures (both big and small) and even basic human survival like the types of foods, hydration and even sleep. This is a survival game that requires a slow pace with the aim of a bigger goal at heart. It looks pretty good as well and there are times that it can feel surprisingly immersive if a little claustrophobic in the thickness of the jungle.
OK, so the Quest version of this game apparently isn’t the full version the Steam VR will be, but it is still impressive and will take you a good 10hrs+ to get through everything. This is a game you need to commit time to and really immerse yourself in, those looking for a quicker, more action-based game should look elsewhere. Yes, it has a few bugs and other issues, but it still gets a Gold from me and its easily well worth the asking price (provided you don’t compare it to the PC-VR version and you stick with it).
