Review: While they are rarer than unicorn poo now and again you look into the Steam store and come across a real diamond in the rough and that is the best way I can sum up Thirst VR. This is an all-action sci-fi shooter that doesn’t hold your hand. You are on the back of a train and the whole world is out to kill you. The game looks great, the guns feel awesome and the sound effects easily immerse you in its life or death world. But then throw that on top of the £1.99 price tag and you have yourself a truly amazing game for the price you pay. While there is only one level filled with random enemies and ammo I still think they are underselling it. Well worth a download and waiting for a sale would be ridiculous.
