Description: VTOL VR is a near-futuristic combat flight game built specifically for Virtual Reality. You are the pilot of an AV-42C, a Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capable vehicle that can perform transport, air to surface, and air to air combat roles. Take on a wide array of challenges that will put your flight skills, situational awareness, and combat tactics to the test.
Review: I have to say that I am surprised that there aren’t a million flight sims for our VR headsets as it is one of those genres that benefits the most from the technology. But putting that to one side the good news is ‘VTOL VR’ is one of the very best flight sims you will play. While it isn’t as serious as DCS that only makes this game slightly better as it is easier to get used to the controls. To some, this will be a problem as there is no tutorial here, but learn what things do makes this game more fun to play. If you ask me this is well worth the £22.99 and one of those games that is a pure joy to play. You might not have heard of VTOL VR before, but you should definitely try it (if you like flight sims).
