Based on true events from WWII, this game takes you deeper into this warzone than most games on the same topic. Not to mention you get to experience this in VR, it really makes the story come alive in your very own living room.
The game was released in December 2020 on most platforms for VR games online and has since been one of the most popular titles for the Oculus Rift S. The developer Respawn Entertainment has really created a wartime legacy with their medal of Honor games.
This will probably become one of their most successful titles for years to come.
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond Gameplay
The title “Above and Beyond” really explains well what you can expect to experience in the game. You will be flying fighter jets, sailing on the shores of Normandie, and driving all sorts of vehicles to get around in this Medal of Honor title. The VR experience is very well made, with great interaction with hands and vision. Giving you the feeling of being fully immersed in this warzone where you are capable of handling any vehicle you set foot in.
To get the best experience, you should have towers for tracking as it will give you the best experience compared to a headset with tracking capabilities.
Your mission is to join the French resistance army to defeat the Germans. I guess the only thing to complain about in this game is this horrible voiceover and enactment of the characters. The people you interact with are not very realistic in this game. Button the battlefield- wow! You are completely immersed in your surroundings as the visuals and sound effects are perfectly executed.
Compatible Devices for Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond
This game has absolutely stunning graphics and sound that does require quite a bit of juice to run smoothly on a computer. So if you barely can run VR games on your setup, expect some considerable upgrades.
We recommend at least:
The specs aren’t frightening and this is probably what most gamers have at their disposal these days.
Final Thought on Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond
The great thing about this game is that you will experience actual events during WWII told by army veterans exactly how certain events happened. So be sure to check those videos out before you play the game to really enjoy every event that takes place in the game. The most fantastic thing about VR is that you can experience true enactments in history. So Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond is probably just the beginning of historically accurate games (well, not all of it) you can enjoy learning more about human history.
Since the release in July 2020, this game has quickly risen to be one of the most popular games on the Oculus platform. An advanced first-person shooter game where you experience real-life combat tactics in a fast-paced war zone. But is the quality of the game as good as it can get? Coatsink, the game developer, has done a great job in making an exciting war ground, but graphics and blackness do lack some depth to feel fully immersed with the game.
Onward Game Play
The movement and feel of control when you aim and shoot in this game are almost second to none. Probably one of the best first-person shooter games for VR to date. In this epic wargame, you have a wide range of weapons to choose between as you advance, sp you will never get bored with the arsenal available to you.
one of the biggest issues with playing on an Oculus headset like the Quest is that movement can either feel too quick or too slow depending on the game. But Coatsink has perfectly finetuned movement in this game that feels incredibly realistic compared to similar games.
In the game, you have nothing else to guide you other than your teammates. No maps with lines will guide you to your targets. So this is a team effort that needs to be finetuned in order to succeed in this game.
Compatible devices for Onward
Onward runs pretty smoothly on Quest and most reasonably priced gaming setups. We would not recommend this game on Oculus as, the backlighting in night mode is not clear enough, and the game crashes quite often.
Our recommendation is on a computer with:
This should be enough to keep your system from crashing mid-game. You will also get a much better experience with an HTC Vive when it comes to viewing angle and PPI.
Final thoughts on Onward
There are plenty of similar VR games out there but, what Onward is better for is the element of surprise lurking behind every corner. You don't have any maps laying out where your enemy is at all times, which gives an extra thrill in the game. The huge variety of weapons is a plus but there should also be more options to upgrade certain weapons. The player base on this game can be a bit toxic, so we would not recommend this game for younger players. This is an 18+ game for a reason and it's full-on war. So expect to get your fair share of insults if you screw up for the team. So if you are an experienced trooper in other similar games, this is the got o game if you want a new challenge.
A fun sandbox VR game where you can move freely around medieval times climbing walls and exploring fantastic architecture-and of course, slaying the enemy! Thi VR game was launched in 2019 by the game developer WarpFrog, and is available on most VR platforms online. We will go through all of the splendor that goes on in Blade & Sorcery and, what optimal hardware you need to get the best experience from the game.
Blade & Sorcery Gameplay
You are a magical sorcerer set out to save your city from being overtaken by the enemy. With the help of magic, blades, and speers, you are prepared to defeat your enemies in bloody battles that take place in a large castle, arenas, and dwelling canyons.
the game lets you move around freely to explore all of the buildings and artifacts you find to help you along the way.
Blade & Sorcery is not a game you spend a couple of hours on. It is an exciting virtual world filled with combat and excitement you will probably want to stay in for hours on end. the gameplay is smooth and intuitive, so you don't really need a lot of practice to get on with brutal combat with the enemy in this game.
There really is no fantastic storyline or intricate puzzles to complete. Just roam around and see what you find. Backgrounds and graphic elements are well made in the game, but the characters you are battling are a bit sluggish and don't really seem that realistic. But exploring this game in itself is a great experience.
Compatible Devices for Blade & Sorcery
Large sandboxes like this do require a bit of RAM, so unfortunately it's not available on standalone VR headsets like the Oculus Quest. PC is the only option here, but other than RAM, the specs you need aren't frightening. On Steam and Oculus, it says you need at least an NVIDIA GTX 1070, but players have reported it works fine on GTX 1010 and up.
The bare minimum processor you need is an Intel i5 but, it is recommended i7 or equivalent from AMD. Any headset works fine with this game with at least a refresh rate of 80Hz and a 110-degree viewing angle. The gameplay is very smooth and little fast-paced movement, so this is a great game for VR beginners.
Final thoughts on Blade & Sorcery
Overall, the game has gotten very good ratings from players and is currently a very popular title on Oculus. So if you're in the market for a Rift S, this is a great introductory game to start out with. Moving around in spacious sandboxes taking you back in time is a great experience in VR, and Blade & Sorcery does this masterfully. Apart from a few unrealistic characters and battle interactions, the views and movement in the game are very well made. But we would like to see a sequel where the action gives you a bit more adrenaline and excitement.
An action-packed game with almost limitless possibilities for movement. The game was released by the developer BigBox VR in late 2020 and offers a unique platform where you can do just about anything you set your mind to. Ever wished you could be in an environment like the movie Ready Player One where you could climb tall buildings, leap over everything, and just about move freely with limitless superpowers? That's what this game feels like!
Population: One Game Plot
This is a great multiplayer game where you can team up or fight everyone on the platform. You can fight anywhere- in the air, on the side of buildings, or even fly over and hail out shells on your enemies. A fun action-packed game where there really is no interesting backstory or puzzles to solve- just pure fun and action.
The setting is a huge city where you have endless battle possibilities. You can even fly over with a jetpack on your back, or be in the background as a sniper with endless possibilities to hide your location from the enemy.
Population: One will offer tons of upgrades in the future with new battlegrounds and cities to explore. So they don't call this game chapter 1 for nothing. Expect a lot more to come from BigBox VR in 2021.
Compatible devices for Population: One
The great thing about this game is that it's available on all large gaming platforms online. So it doesn't matter if you're using Oculus or an HTC Vive, you can find them in all stores like Steam and the Oculus Platform.
But unfortunately, the game is not available for PlayStation VR. Since it is compatible with the Oculus Quest 2, it's strange BigBox VR does not have a deal with Sony on this game, as both the PS4 and PS5 would be more than capable to run the game. We might suspect that Sony wanted too much of the cake or, Sony was just not interested at the time.
But in the future, I think we will see it available on PSVR as well.
To run the game on a computer, you would need:
You should also have at least 8GB of storage for the game on your computer.
Final Thoughts on Population: One
If you love multiplayer games with your friends or want to challenge players around the world in combat, this is probably one of the most exciting games to try in 2021. Of course, something can be said about the graphics on the game that does not look that realistic yet. But this is work in development, and we're sure that this game will certainly progress over time to be the to-go-to game for VR newbies. Population: One does not require that much computer capacity either, so it's effortless to get into VR with this game without having to spend thousands on upgrades in order to play the game.
Boneworks has become one of the most popular titles for VR since the launch in 2020. The game is set in a dystopian city where you can manipulate any object and use it against your enemy and, at the same time brings in familiar tones from games like half Life and DOOM. The Developer Stress Level Zero has gotten great reviews for the gameplay and, it's compatible with any VR headset.
If you're looking for an imaginative first-person game with tons of exciting features and puzzles, Boneworks could be a good fit for you. The game sets in a virtual city where you have the power to control all elements around you. It's sort of like being in the movie Inception where nothing around you is real and can be controlled.
The Coty you step into is called MythOS and is a completely virtual world developed by an AI called Voidmind. Your name is Arthur For, the security director of a company called Monogon. the very same company that developed Voidmind.
Your job is to save the city the AI has hijacked and kill off all the "viruses” set to stop you from completing the mission. You will not only need to kill your enemy but also outsmart them by solving puzzles along the way.
But rest assured, these puzzles are easy for most people to accomplish, even if you don't like these sorts of games and just want to blast your enemy- you'll have plenty of time to do that too!
Compatible Devices for Boneworks
For optimal experience, we do recommend using a headset with a good viewing angle like HTC Vive or valve Index on this game. the Oculus would be too narrow and you don't really experience being fully immersed with the game. A high PPI resolution is also important so you don't get a grainy picture while moving around in this fast-paced action game.
To get the best rendering and don't experience lag, you will need at least 8GB RAM but 16GB is recommended to have room for running more tasks on the computer.
On most headsets, a GTX1060 graphics card would be enough but, for Rift users, 2060 Super is recommended. You will also need a good processor that can clock around 3.3ghz+, so you don't experience a choppy gaming experience.
Final thoughts on Boneworks
An exciting title that really appeals to those who want to experience moving around in a completely virtual environment, being able to control and manipulate all of the objects in the game. Boneworks really shows imagination when it comes to player capabilities in the game but, the puzzles in the game could be too transparent and simple for those who enjoy this type of feature in a game.
But action, graphics, and details are very well planned out by the developers at Stress Level Zero. A developer we will definitely hear more about in the future on VR gaming.
