Arizona Sunshine 2 Meta Quest 2 Review 6/10 πŸ• @pixelhunted #IndieGame #GameDev #VRGames

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

The VR dream isn’t dead, but it’s starting to look a bit wonky. The Metaverse is a joke, PSVR2 is dying on the vine and, almost four years after the release of Half-Life: Alyx, there hasn’t been a title that comes close to its production values and ingenuity.

Enter Arizona Sunshine 2. The first game released in 2016 across multiple VR platforms and, while an utterly boilerplate zombie shooter, at least delivered on its promise of letting you mow down hordes of the undead with a variety of high-powered weaponry. 

We’re now eight years on and the sequel has finally arrived. So, what’s changed?

Esper is a VR puzzle game that uses telekinesis to test your skills in solving unique 3D puzzles to progress through the game.

You are a trainee in a government-funded retro spy institution that evaluates new recruits telekinesis powers. 

You start the game on your first day in the government centre undergoing telekinesis assessment tests, checking how well you can use mind powers to carry out your spy missions.

So London is finally getting its first Virtual Reality Arcade in June 2017!

Not only that, it's also getting a great place to meet friends, eat, drink and listen to awesome music from guest DJ's.

Throw into the mix some retro gaming delights and I think I have found this summer's must-see London venue!

For me Virtual Reality and the use of headsets etc to create a virtual sense of being inside the video game is merely a gimmick that has no long term place in the world of video games.

That may come across as a bold statement in this age of heavy investment into these types of projects but honestly I see VR being in the same arena as 3D, a gimmick that's fun for an hour but will end up giving you a headache!

Unless someone can come up with a solution that means that after a 3 hour session you don't feel like you are going to vomit, I just can't see it practically working for the video gaming masses.

Let's take a look back over the years and see what Virtual Reality has delivered to us in the way of short lived video games entertainment.....
