Description: In 2060 AD, the earth federal government has developed a VR game named Space Fist for selecting powerful federal warriors to eliminate the forces of evil and terrorists around the world. The government intends the federal warriors to fight against the forces of evil and terrorists who have defied orders and broken Earth law. However, during a hacker intrusion, your sister’s consciousness was trapped in the game. In order to save your sister, as well as to investigate the conspiracy behind the hacker, you don the helmet and enter the game alone.

Review: While I love VR technology to bits we are a long way away from being able to play Beat ’em up’s in VR. Sadly this doesn’t stop Space Fist from trying. I have to give credit to the makers of this game as they have given it a lot of depth with loads of options and even a multiplayer mode. But Street Fighter in VR this is not. The characters look terrible, the voice acting is beyond a joke and most the action feels unexciting. When it comes to the gameplay not being exciting this is more to do with the limitations of VR rather than the game itself. But even if the tech was better the £11.99 asking price will never be justifiable. Even half of that price seems too much for this, but pay a fiver (£5) or less and you might get some fun out of it. But paying any more than that is like punching yourself in the face!
