Description: Mortal Blitz applies Gun Shooting games from arcade game centres into VR platform and lets you experience the whole new 1st person VR action shooter experience. In this game, the player becomes ‘Yuhei’ ex- F.O.R.C.E. (governmental elite soldiers), and toils and fights in the mission to thwart the evil plans of the Dominion’s Teratoma Destruction Plan. Mortal Blitz aims to provide fun and various experiences as a gun-shooting game by implementing these systems.
Review: Gameplay wise Mortal Blitz is your classic shooter. You get a gun in each hand and have to duck behind cover to avoid attacks. While this sounds fun you will soon be sweating like pig in a butcher’s shop. There really is little else to do here than shoot for your life. You don’t get free movement here you kill (or miss) all the enemies in the current area then teleport to the next one where you’ll shoot (or again miss) more enemies. But you do at least get an electric whip that allows you to pull objects in the environment towards you and can either hang onto them to use as a shield or throw them at enemies. There are a few other weapons in the game, but nothing worth mentioning.
Mortal Blitz is a great game it really is and one of the better shooters you can download. But it’s just a VR shooter and we have all come to expect so much more from this genre that it looks and feels crap in comparison to similar games. If you’re getting desperate for a new VR shooter maybe give it a go. But I would wait for a good sale before doing so.
