Description: Orbital Strike: Arena is a team-based, online shooter for the HTC Vive. We’re out to create nothing less than the premier multiplayer game for virtual reality. Battle your way across no man’s land and enemy AI drones. Use teamwork and tactics to attack the enemy base and destroy their turret defences. Take out their AI Drone production capabilities before making your final push on the headquarters. Built for the HTC Vive and a room-scale virtual reality experience: dodge, take cover and use your shield to survive. Good Hunting!

Review: Orbital Strike: Arena ticks all the right boxes. This online multiplayer arena shooter offers some pretty good 3 V 3 action within a Tron styled world. The shooting mechanics feel great and the teleport system works OK as well, as does the personal shield you have. I also have to give a nod to the ability to dual-wield hand cannons which is a blast. While on the surface it all seems good this is sadly a game that has had its heydays and is now little more than a distant memory in peoples Steam libraries.

The lack of online players means you are stuck playing against the AI and with no single-player game to speak of this soon gets very boring. Add that to the high price tag and you have a decent game that I really can’t recommend to anyone. If you see it in a sale do give it a go, but just make sure some friends do the same as well otherwise you will feel very lonely.
