Open Water Scuba (Oculus Rift)
Intro: Travel all around the world including the Great Barrier Reef, Bonaire, Hawaii, Galapagos Islands, and Belize. Explore world reknown dive sites such as the Great Blue Hole in Belize, detailed with site specific features. The latest in advanced lighting, underwater caustics, and user interface design provides a complete immersive interactive VR experience.
Verdict: There are now a few different underwater adventure/experience apps out there and some of them are truly amazing. Open Water Scuba isn’t in that higher tier or underwater experiences games, but it does indeed have its pros. The choice of worlds and their size is a definite plus as is the variety of sea life to see and dive with. The good news is I found it moderately enjoyable for the first twenty minutes or so, but things soon got a little boring and the clinching graphics and unnecessary dramatic pan rounds started to get the better of me. For kids, this might be a great little educational tool to help them learn about the various sea life that lives in a particular area. But for us adults is a slow-moving, barren experience that isn’t exciting to look at nor experience.
But it’s not horrendous and like I said it does have its pros and any budding young diver will enjoy it. It’s just that there are free apps out there that offer the same and look a thousand times better.
