Description: Slime Rancher is the tale of Beatrix LeBeau, a plucky, young rancher who sets out for a life a thousand light-years away from Earth on the ‘Far, Far Range’ where she tries her hand at making a living wrangling slimes.
Review: Lets get a few bombshells out of the way first. Not only do you need the original ‘ Slime Rancher’ game (which currently costs £14.99), but this is NOT the full game in VR at all which is the worst part of this. Yes it works well and yes it is fun to play, but it is more a demo of what Slime Rancher in VR might look like and I am left with the question of why bother making this when you could have done the full game? Anyway, its worth a look I suppose, but it could and indeed should have been much better.
