Description: Swordsman is a story-driven, physics-based medieval combat game designed for virtual reality. Experience combat where everything is physics-based, from weapons to bodies. In the world of Swordsman, the Jötunn travels to Earth in an attempt to enslave all of humanity. He has recruited captains from all over the world, giving them godly weapons with which to command powerful armies. He wields seemingly infinite power: Hellfire.
Review: Swordsman VR is a medieval-style combat game in which you will be sword-swinging your way to victory, so expect a physical workout and plenty of movement making it a little nauseating for some people. The game certainly does a lot of things right as it looks pretty great and there is undoubtedly enough upgrades to your character, weapons and armour to justify its own price tag. Sadly it is the action that does let this game down a little and as with all sword-swinging games that is the most important aspect. It just doesn’t feel right and leaves you feeling unsatisfied with it, especially when it costs £15.49. I do feel this is one to keep an eye on and I do indeed recommend it, but do wait for either a sale or an update before giving it a go.
