Review: When it comes to my own thoughts on ‘Mars Flight VR’ I find myself pull-apart from my own personal thoughts on it and how other people might see it. Personally, I found it fascinating and amazing, even if it is a little nauseating, but there isn’t a lot of content at all here. It’s an interactive helicopter experience featuring a small area of Mars modelled with photo data so it looks as real as anything is ever going to be (until we get there in real life of course). The problem I have is the asking price is £15.49 and most people will find that a bit of a rip-off, but I personally enjoyed it enough to want to recommend it. But without motion controller support I am not willing to recommend this at the moment. If it was 90% cheaper I might do, but until then I don’t suggest anyone pay out for this.
