Review: The Sniper VR is your classic VR sniper game. You get given a target (or several of them) and you need to “take them out”. The game itself looks quite basic with a Minecraft style of graphics, but it is the gameplay that lets the game down more than its poor quality visuals. Holding the gun is just too sensitive and it makes taking out the targets a bit of a nightmare. Then there is the lack of content that really puts me off recommending the game. Sure, it’s worth a look if you got in super cheap or as part of a bundle, but I certainly wouldn’t pay full-price.
