Description: Do you feel like diving into a world full of fantastic adventures? Then you’ve come to the right place! Zhazari is a game where many enemies are waiting for you, you will face orcs, ghosts and dark monsters. The inhabitants count on your endurance and strength in battle. You are the last hope to restore peace to the valley of Gherdania.

Review: ‘Zhazari VR’ is a pretty generic indie sword swinging game that sees you fighting countless, ever spawning monsters and trying to do the odd task along the way. There is no story here, no narration, just monsters and more monsters. While I liked the look of some of the monsters they do all have terrible animation. There are 4 areas to explore, but everything is pretty basic and every enemy can be killed with a simple wave of the sword while holding down the right trigger button to constantly heal yourself. There is no magic, no upgrades and no matter what sword you use they all do the same thing (which is nothing).

If this was a fraction of its current price I might have given it my recommendation, but there is DEFINITELY nothing here worth £19.32. If you see it in a sale for £5 or less it might be worth a go, but the gameplay here is what really lets the game down the most. There is no joy to the action, no strategy needed, its just all so flat and boring no matter how big the creatures are. It’s an OK effort I guess, but only a fool would buy it for more than a fiver. (Yes, I did ask for a refund).
