Description: Full Scale Restoration of the Japanese battleship “Yamato” in VR. Battleship Yamato was constructed during the World War Ⅱ in 1941, and it was the biggest battleship ever built. Unfortunately, Yamato didn’t last through the war, and it sank to the bottom of the sea. Now, battleship Yamato is completely restored in full scale in VR. It is based on the blueprints and the recollections of the actual crew who are still alive. In this app, you can actually get on Yamato and walk across the deck, climb up the bridge, and go inside the ship. See the Yamato crew taking command. View the explosions of the gunfire from a close distance.

Review: VR Battleship YAMATO isn’t a game and it isn’t something that will educate you on the battleship in question. But for historians or fans of the ship itself, this is a stunning recreation of a classic ship that has been done to a VERY high level of detail and effort. Sure, you would have to know the history of the ship to have any interest in this app, but for someone out there £29.99 for this app is money well spent. While the narration is a pile of rubbish this app is all about the lifelike creation and looking at all the positive comments I think they pretty much nail it, but for most people, this is something not worth bothering about.
