Description: You are sitting behind the plane’s controls. Not just any plane – the Spitfire. A single-seat fighter aircraft from the Second World War. Beneath, you can see mountains and deserts. Above, immaculate blue sky. You can hear loud engine noises. You actually feel the speed and turns, just like a real pilot. But wait… There are other planes on the sky and they are coming for you! That’s not a joke! Make unpredictable maneuvers, evade enemy fire and surprise them with an unexpected flank attacks. Prove yourself by shooting down as many bogeys as you can!

Review: Flight simulators are something that works amazingly well in VR, but they are slow coming so it’s nice to see Overflight come into the VR fold. While it looks nice, sounds nice and can be quite exciting at times there is a real lack of both single-player content and online players. The good news is the cheap price does make it affordable if you want to dogfight with a few friends and sadly that is pretyt much the only people you are ever going to bump into online. Even if you don’t have any friends to play with its still worth a download for the dog fighting with the AI. Sure, I wish there was a lot more to this game, but I feel you pretty much get what you pay for and very little else.
