Description: Immerse yourself in the starship Aphelion’s vast and unforgiving underbelly. You are Doctor Rupert Grouch, hounded by his own creation, DAVE. Survive time-based, combat and stealth trials, all in zero gravity. An experience uniquely suited to and built for VR.
Review: Let’s deal with this games biggest complaint and indeed problem to start with. Yes, this game is INCREDIBLY nauseating. You will need your VR legs for this one for sure, but then again all zero-gravity games are the same as I would imagine moving about in real-life zero gravity is. Putting that to one side, for now, this is a good little action shooter in which you will be racing, shooting and generally exploring around some sort of giant starship. Graphically the game is OK, but they are nothing special. In fact, there is nothing really special about this game at all. Sure, it’s a good mix of genres, but there is nothing new or exciting. So…is it worth the high £10.99 asking price? No, sadly it isn’t. But getting this fr half price or lower will leave you feeling pretty satisfied with your purchase. Just make sure you have your VR legs before giving it a go.
