Description: SkydiVeR is the first parachuting simulator specifically made for VR. Collect your parachuting equipment and board the majestic Lockheed C-130 Hercules aircraft. Launch into the sky and literally fly in this graphically stunning 3D environment, driven by a high fidelity physics based system, and land on a cargo ship in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Review: SkydiVeR is much more of a simulation than a game and could probably teach you a fair amount about skydiving in the real world. While it isn’t the most fun skydiving experience on the gear VR it is still a good challenge and great for learning the basics of getting into this extreme form of recreation. For me, SkydiVeR is a game of two halves.

There are points in the game that look great and make you feel in control and dare I say it makes you feel as if you really are skydiving There there is the other side of it that is boring, esspecialy while falling from the plane because it looks like a static image and having to go through the takeoff scenario of the plane. For the price, I think this game is worth a go if you enjoy skydiving in the real world or would like to learn more about it before you do a real jump. But if you have no interest in it, its best to avoid it.
