Motorbike (Oculus Rift)
Intro: A casual bike skills game full of action and real physics dynamics. Motorbike comes with 100 original tracks, thousands of online tracks and a track editor to create your own tracks and share with other players. Select from different riders, bikes and landscapes. Additionally, you can play Motorbike against other players. You will find Motorbike easy to play but hard to master.
Review: Motorbike (needs something else after that title I feel) is a physics-based motorcycle game with over 100 original tracks, thousands of online tracks and even a track editor to create your very own challenges. It emphasises on balance, skill, and control rather than all out speed to tackle what I can only describe as obstacle tracks. There will be epic explosions, deadly crashes and life-ending injuries that often cannot be avoided.
The controls of this game are very, very similar to Trials HD on Xbox 360. When you get used to the controls and game style it feels great and plays like a dream. But it will take you hundreds of failed attempts to do some levels meaning you will need sheer grit and determination to do them. The physics code works extremely well and once you really nail the controls you will start to realise that all the levels are not as impossible as they might first seem.
Verdict: Motorbike is a classic game style, but given a VR spin and boy does it look better for it. Despite a few dodgy moments of double vision, the main levels look simply amazing and incredibly detailed, it is this detail in both the visual and the character animation that makes this game so good. If you played Trials HD on the XBOX 360, this will blow your mind! I hope that more content gets added for the price as it is a little short at the moment, but on the whole, I was impressed with it and found more to enjoy than hate.
