Description: Diving to the bottom of the North Atlantic, you take on the role of Dr Ethan Lynch, Associate Professor of Maritime Archaeology at the fictional University of Nova Scotia. With funding from a mysterious investor, Dr Lynch and his PhD Candidate Jean Robinson have set out aboard a research vessel to dive the wreck of Titanic and answer questions that have remained submerged for a century. This game allows you to explore the shipwreck inside and out and recover items and complete missions such as the recovery of a downed ROV, Documentary Film Making and the creation of a photomosaic.
In the 1912 experience, players will witness key events through the eyes of a survivor onboard lifeboat 6. It is a historically accurate recreation of events, based on eye-witness testimony and substantial research. Players will leave with a deeper understanding of this historic and tragic event.
Review: While far from perfect Titanic VR really is a remarkable interactive experience that is worthy of your attention. If you have any interest at all in the story, history and current standing of the sunken Titanic ship this will keep you amused for hours as you explore the wreckage. While some of the low-quality graphics and the annoying 360 videos of the event are drawbacks, this experience redeems itself with loads of facts, interactive elements and an odd sense of immersion.
