Intro: Strap into your very own nuclear-powered jetpack and blast into the skies of Omega Island, a volcanic sea enclave converted to a vast, intricate super-spy training facility. Soar high above its mountainous peaks for an eagle-eye view, or power dive into the underground base to get up close and physical. Test your piloting skills by weaving through the dense roads of the cityscape, or boost from rooftop to rooftop to find the quickest routes to success.
Omega Island is an aerial open world where the visceral freedom of a jetpack lets you achieve your goals, your way. Step by step, you too can rise through the ranks of the elite to graduate as the ultimate spy, the elusive ‘Omega Agent’.
Review: You play as a jetpack agent who is out to fight crime and stop evil wherever he goes. You do this by flying around an island city in all sorts of missions and free-range flights. While it does look basic in terms of graphics you soon learn to look past that and the easy pickup-and-play style will have you flinging your jetpack around in no time. Flying around in the training / free mode is one of the best experiences I’ve had while in VR. That freedom of being given a jetpack and told you can explore a massive island is something you can never truly put into words.
Some of the missions you will play later on in the game do get quite hard and unforgiving, but if you don’t like those you can just fly around the island in free mode collecting the hidden briefcases. Or just fly around and explore the seemingly deserted island in your own time.
Verdict: Omega Agent is one of those games that is a lot better to play than it looks. Don’t let those basic cartoon style graphics scare you off downloading this game because wrapped upside of them is a great game that is not only fun to play but also rather challenging once it gets going.
