Description: MAGE VR: The Lost Memories is a Virtual Reality game you can play with the Vive headset. This FPS single-player action/fantasy game lets you touch the magic with gestures to choose your spells and fantastic monsters to face (trolls, ghouls, mummies, spiders …).
After you’ve forgotten your past, wake up as a wizard in a chaotic world and learn spells as you recover your memories. The goal? Beating the monsters over the levels, learning new powers by recovering your memories back and discovering why the world has become chaotic.
Review: While ‘Mage VR: The Lost Memories’ isn’t a game that grabs you by the balls, if you are willing to give this adventure game a little bit of time you will start to enjoy it. It is your classic adventure game, there are monsters to battle, puzzles to solve and quests to be undertaken. While some will moan about how basic the game looks I feel you really need to take the small £3.99 price tag into account. For that price, you get a good few hours worth of gameplay which is more than enough time to get into this game and start enjoying it. No, it’s not flawless, far from it in fact, but for the price, it is well worth a look.
