Covert Syndrome Review, and others… Mark Etem

New:

Covert Syndrome (HTC Vive), FPS: 8/10 — #shooter #crouch! #dead #teleporting #reload

For a free FPS game on HTC Vive this game was great. It’s simple: you advance through various points in the game that provide cover (mostly crates and cement barrier) to protect you from oncoming attackers. Left hand allows you to ‘teleport’ and grab, and your right is outfitted with a large, futuristic weapon. The best part of the game is actually crouching and crawling around prone to avoid enemy fire. A very real experience.

Fallout 4 (HTC Vive), FPS/Adventure: 7/10

The bottom line is that this is a great game for the story line and intricacies. Unfortunately, the VR component of the games development is not all there. While I didn’t personally get dizzy, I let a friend try the game and he was nauseous for 30 minutes, due to the point-and-hop method of transport and the combination of turning around and adjusting horizontal perspective with the arrow pad. There are a lot of glitches, and the game crashed three times in as many hours. Still, I played for 3 hours straight – it pulls you in!
