Description: Mankind was wiped off the Earth, but some humans escaped. Now the last remnants of humanity hide in the rocky outer regions of our solar system. Fight back against the Machine Alliance in this made-for-VR shooter. This game contains three play styles based on different types of locomotion: a “rails shooter” mode, an experimental “jog-to-move” mode in which the player jogs in place to move forward along the path, and a highly experimental Treadmill Mode that lets brave VR users play the game while walking on an exercise treadmill.

Review: I kind of like what the developers were trying to do with The Path of Greatest Resistance, but VR gameplay can be quite tiring anyway, you don’t need a treadmill or a walking on the spot simulation, you just need to keep the player action to make them sweat. And besides, jogging is not a way to get rid of the motion sickness! This running, shooting game might sound like a good idea on paper, especially with the Vive foot trackers not supported, but even at £2.79 it is not something I can recommend. Kudos for the idea, but I just didn’t like it and can’t see the value of it.
