Description: Heroes Never Die is a Next-Gen VR shooting game designed by Frostbite Games. Not as other shooting games, players should save ammo and time. Try to find time bonus and a possible strategy to achieve a high score. Many heroes can be used and every stage is worth to explore.
Review: I have to say ‘Heroes Never Die’ isn’t half as bad as its negative Steam reviews might suggest. There might have been problems at launch, but those now seem to be fixed. There are 3 action characters to choose from and each has its own storyline and intros. With each character, you can upgrade and customise with weapons and stats. The idea of the game is to kill 100 bad guys as fast as you can. Shoot them, smash them against the wall and generally cause as much chaos as possible. OK, the VR element is incredibly nauseating so you will need your VR legs for sure, but it looks OK and feels pretty great to play. While I don’t think it is worth the £14.99 asking price I would consider grabbing it at half of that I really would. Not a terrible game for sure, but not a long one neither.
