Description: Sword Master VR, now with support for Oculus Touch & HTC Vive, brings you intense sword fighting gameplay that has never been possible in traditional video games. Taking full advantage of room-scale virtual reality, you must learn to fight with realistic swords in full 360 combat! React quickly, duck and dodge, deflect incoming attacks! Sword Master VR is not a game of standing still and lightly wiggling your sword in the enemies face. Sword Master VR is a game of endurance, skill, speed, and most importantly, to become a master of the blade.
Review: Sword Master VR is one of those games that needs to be played the way it was intended for. If you go into this game like a mad Scottsman swinging your sword and doing 1000 attacks per minute you will get absolutely nowhere. This is a game that you need to play more strategically, more…patiently. While it isn’t anything amazing I think it looks good and the gameplay feels nice, once you get in a few good cuts.
It is the lack of content and the overall lack of general quality like the poor animation that puts me off recommending this game, especially at its £6.99. But find this in a sale or package for a quid ($1) and you might well feel a lot better about your purchase. Worth a play I suppose, just not worth the money.
