Description: Ocean Rift is the world’s first VR aquatic safari park. Explore a vivid underwater world full of life including dolphins, sharks, turtles, sea snakes, rays, whales, manatees, sea lions and even dinosaurs! You can swim around and explore each habitat using gamepad or touch controls. This full version contains 12 habitats ready for you to explore. Activate the education mode to learn more about the animals you come across. There are over 40 fully narrated information points to find.

Review: Ocean Rift is something that is not only amazing to look at and experience yourself, but it’s a foundation experience, something that will plant the seed of VR amazement into anyone who experiences it. If you know someone who thinks VR is nothing but a fad, stick them in this and it will shut them up. With some truly jaw-dropping graphics and animation, this app is as close to real-world diving as I would like to get (mostly because I can’t swim!). It’s worth every penny and to be honest, I have no idea how they made it look as good as they did. From the first animal encounter to the last, you will take your VR headset off and there is only one word that will come out of your mouth and that word is “WOW!!”
