RedMax (Gear VR)
Intro: You work for RedMax Mining. As a FS-X Squirrel pilot you have been hired to sabotage the seismic survey of a competitor exploring for a rare mineral known as “RedMax”. The discovery of this mineral was a direct result of wormhole transport (WT) commercialization which opened the entire galaxy to earth based commercial development.
Another company has already arrived on the planet. Once the lander has opened you need to quickly dispose of their BL-5 seismic pods shown on your HUD map. Complete the mission as quickly as possible and return safely back to the lander.
Verdict: When it comes to controls RedMax tries to do something different but ends up making it almost unplayable. Flying the plane with your looks and shooting aim with looks at the same time makes the game almost unplayable. Which is a real shame because there is a good game idea here, its just the control system will annoy a lot of people. If you are willing to take the time to learn to fly the space craft you are rewarded with a good action shooter. But learn you must and it doesn’t make it easy.
