Description: The Burning Descent is an intuitive, fast-paced competitive VR shooter in which you take the role of mercenaries battling in a deathmatch arena. You’ll fight across a colossal and vertiginous arena, teleporting from platform to platform and bullseye your opponents with different cool weapons. Each intense round gives you five minutes to frag enemies and ramp up your score. At the end of the fight, the mercenary with the highest score is declared the best fighter in the arena!

Review: ‘The Burning Descent’ is an arena action shooter that you can play on your own against bots or with other humans online. Given that there are no other players online you can count that out, so sadly that only leaves us with the single-player mode. Overall the game isn’t terrible at all, it looks good most the time and the action feels OK. But there is a real lack of content here given the lack of other players. It’s still fun to play against the bots I suppose, but its not £19.49’s worth of fun, in fact, I would say it was no-where near that amount. If you paid just a few quid for this it would be worth a look, but not for much more than that unless you can get a group of friends to play it as well.
