Description: Ready to sink the fleet? Step right into VR Battle Grid where you are the naval commander and the rockets are ready to launch! It’s you against the machine. Do you have what it takes to win? Hunt down six classes of hidden ships: Aircraft Carrier, Amphibious Assault, Cruiser, Littoral Combat, Destroyer, Submarine. This classic strategy game played and known the world over by many names, including battleship, battleships, sea battle, salvo, combat, wings, grid attack, ship attack, attack at sea, l’attaque (French), bataille navale (French), Морской Бой (Russian), zeeslag (Dutch), 海戦ゲーム (Japanese), okręty (Polish), and more.

Review: I’m ashamed to admit it, but there are times when I judge a game, often on screenshots alone. VR Battle Grid is one of those games. It looked so basic there was no way I was going to enjoy playing it. But I’m happy to admit I was wrong to judge it that way. As the missiles fly into your view from the other player (by there way, there is indeed a multiplayer option) it really adds to the excitement. It’s not the best VR version of BattleShips, but it’s not bad at all, especially for a freebie. If you enjoy playing the classic board game, this will be right up your street.
