Iggymob’s less-than-stellar revival of the Gungrave franchise, Gungrave VR, heads to PC VR in March.
The game will launch on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on March 6th. It was previously only available on Sony’s PSVR. The base game will cost $24.99 with the add-on episode, Gungrave VR U.N. coming in at $9.99. A package containing both of them costs $29.74.
In Gungrave VR you control a gun-slinging steampunk cowboy named Grave. Through a mix of third and first-person shooting, you take down scores of enemies that pour in from all sides.
Both games are now listed on Steam. As with the PSVR version, they can only be played using a standard gamepad as a seated experience.
We frankly thought Gungrave VR was one of the worst VR releases of 2018. Not only did the core gameplay not make much sense inside a headset but there was barely any content and the presentation was hugely inconsistent. It played like an outdated shooter that was struggling to find a reason to exist. Somewhat impressively, Gungrave U.N. was even worse, adding in pointless 2D side-scrolling sections.
“Gungrave VR is probably the worst game I’ve played in VR this year,” we said in our review. “It’s a stripped back PS2-era shooter that can be beaten in less than an hour and has absolutely no reason to be in VR. It’s entirely incoherent, utterly devoid of intrigue and, despite releasing in Japan last year, plays like it’s half-finished.”
We obviously wouldn’t advise picking this one up, then.
