Review: What I am not going to pretend to know is the story behind this game. Something about hacking, something about trying to stop someone or something. What I am going to pretend is that I found most the hidden Easter egg that is inside this game. Sure, I got the Atari, DK2, Mobile VR headset, the DeLorean, even the Robocop ED-209! But there are so many things of inspiration crammed into this game it could take you all day just to search each level! If you love Blade Runner, The Fifth Element or the original Total Recall you need to download this game immediately.
While some of the hacking sections tend to get a bit boring, they are the perfect break between the full-on graphics of the real world environment. During the hacking sections, the gameplay feels great and the puzzle solving aspects will get your brain working, outside it will blow your mind clean away! It is the perfect sci-fi environment that looks like it has been ripped off a very expensive Sci-fi movie. But it’s not a movie, it is a VR game world and you can feel so immersive at times that it kind of sucks to return to the real world! If I could, I would live inside of this game for the rest of my life.
