Enjoy acting as a giant creature and destroy without any responsibility! Punish those people in the world of Simplicity who woke you up from a nice dream!

Review: There is no getting away from it, VR Monster Awakens is little more than the VR version of the classic arcade game Rampage. But sadly I would still prefer to play that original 1986 arcade game than this. Its main problem is that it is only half a game unless you have two Vive trackers for your legs, so while most of us don’t we can’t experience it to its full potential. Sadly that is where the other problem is. The destruction of the buildings just doesn’t feel as much fun as you might think it is. The crumble effects, the sound effects, nothing feels finished, especially for a game price marked at £9.99. Do consider grabbing this in a cheap bundle or paying little more than single £1 for it. Otherwise, I would forget becoming a real city-destroying monster for now.
