Iron Man VR is simply as enjoyable on the Oculus Quest 2 – Destructoid
Anticipate an arcadey expertise moving into
Again in mid-2020, Iron Man VR was unleashed into the world through the PSVR. Whereas it made considerably of a splash within the VR neighborhood on the time, I haven’t actually heard of it since then: however fortunately, extra of us are getting the prospect to test it out because of a Quest 2 launch this week.
In case you missed it earlier than, Iron Man VR is basically an Iron Man simulator, full with dual-hand repulsor management, and a novel storyline. You’ll spend plenty of time thrusting round vistas and open canyons blowing up robots, chasing up leads and even strolling round a bit as Tony Stark.
The entire similar core gameplay is again, and it nonetheless works. The concept of merely utilizing two separate VR controllers as Iron Man arms is genius, as you’ll be able to fly or shoot with both hand. Just like many different VR video games it’s one thing you’ll have to study from the bottom up, as you try and get your bearings, fly as quick as you’ll be able to, and frantically shoot whereas remaining correct (and whereas one thing is chasing you).
Enjoying as Iron Man with an untethered headset is a blast
I discovered myself studying the management scheme once more, flying shortly with each arms to get a sooner thrust: then hovering, blasting one thing with each arms, and outmaneuvering one other opponent with one hand on flight duties and the opposite on firepower. The factor that makes the Quest 2 launch so cool is the whole lack of a headset tether. Early on the Quest expertise asks you to both rotate the analog stick or go searching in actual life to show; and on the Quest 2, it’s tremendous straightforward to face in the course of the room and just do that.
In my time with this model I additionally seen much less glitches this time round, little question the results of two-ish years of hindsight and patches.
When you have a VR headset that’s able to operating Iron Man VR, it’s slowly turn out to be one of many extra “should play” video games on the platform. Whereas it doubtless gained’t wow anybody outright, there’s sufficient arcadey goodness to propel you thru its eight-ish hour marketing campaign, with just a few little extras in tow. Hopefully this port results in a follow-up, as a result of there’s plenty of potential right here with greater licensed VR video games.
