Description: Hailstorm VR is a high time-to-kill, sci-fi arena shooter that lets players create the type of game they want to play. Customization options include game modes, variants, weapon spawns, scoring, health/shield, bots, and mobility style, among others.
Review: If Halo was made by a bedroom developer for a budget of £5 I would imagine it would look much like Hailstorm VR does cheap, shallow, but some fun to play. This is a mostly online shooter that sees you going against the other team which is Red Vs Blue’s. But as you might imagine there are no online players these days and while there are bots for the single-player mode they do suck so you are kind of left without a game to play as such. What I do suggest is that you play the demo as it will show you pretty much all you need to see. And if you still like it and fancy playing it with friends I would wait for a REALLY good sale before trying this. Sadly I do feel this is one game that has had its hey-day and is now pretty much dead in the water.
