Sniper Rust VR Quick Review
Actually I am quite surprised as to really what's going on while I am playing the game. There's no information or whatsoever, and there's a number of logical holes that occur to you as you play, suh as questioning how exactly a militia group are operating in various countries with the kind of material support they apparently have.
The gameplay is pretty-straight forward - it is objective based. At the start of each level, you'll be given a series of tasks to complete, mostly people that you will need to kill or targets that you will need to blow up. The controls are quite decent, and fairly easy to pick up. However, it feels a little awkward to be wielding a sniper rifle with two Touch controllers.
The graphics are pretty good, but not photo realistic - which they claimed in their Steam page. The assets that they used don’t seem to always integrate or match very well. Moreover, the environments look generic and not that impressive. There's nothing special in the audio department, with repetitive enemy cries and gunfire sound.
The Sniper Rust VR is available on Steam for the Oculus Rift ($9.99). There is a demo available now on Steam that's free to download, which includes one complete level and access to the shooting range practice mode.
