Description: You will play the role of Deputy Commander in the ‘Unearthing Mars’ mission, trying to unravel the secrets hidden in the Phobos Fragment from the Ark Research Center’s closed-door study. Through the Ark Device, you will experience a war across outer space and return to the Earth and Mars of ancient times.
Each of the various fast-paced shooting stages features 6 or more guns to choose from. Special skills can be used at critical moments so that you can shuttle between enemies and take your time aiming at weak points to take out enemy generals. You can take advantage of being practically invincible to get familiar with the rhythms of attack. Remember, in-game bosses will constantly be testing your mastery of weapons and skills.
Review: While it does have to be said Unearthing Mars 2: The Ancient War is a vast improvement from the first game Unearthing Mars on the PSVR, it still isn’t perfect by any sense of the word. The visuals are what has improved the most and throughout the game, you will enjoy the sights, if not the cheap voice acting that accompanies it. Don’t get me wrong, I really did enjoy this game and I am happy to recommend it to anyone who loves their space shooter/adventure games, but you need to know it might not be as good as you want it to be, but just about good enough to justify its own asking price.
