Description: Welcome to Wild Game Hunter VR, the first VR hunting game for the HTC Vive! It’s all the fun of hunting with none of the long walks, hard days, and boring company. Grab your rifle, get outdoors, and bag some wild game! In this immersive virtual reality hunting experience, you’ll get only a few chances for the perfect shot. You’ll be fully immersed in a variety of 360 degree woodlands. Critters and nature surround you while you play through multiple levels hunting for wild game! Make sure to check all your sides, animals lurk in all corners of the forest and you have to be quick to get them all.
Review: I’m not someone that condones or understands hunting animals, but I do understand what makes for a good hunting game. Wild Game Hunter VR doesn’t have any of the things that make a good hunting game. It lacks any skill or thrill of the chase, in fact just about anything that might be the slightest bit challenging! I can look past the terrible graphics and almost non-existant sound effects, but what I can’t look past is the £8.99 asking price. There is no way you could ever justify that price to me and to be honest anything more than this being free does put me off recommending it. The good news is there are better hunting games out there, so do look at them first.
