The 5 Best Oculus Rift Games: 'Minecraft,' 'Eve: Valkyrie,' And More
One can say that the Oculus Rift is the virtual reality (VR) headset to beat in the market today. Aside from its technical credentials, it also boasts of wide selection of games that helps to make the platform engaging and viable.
Here are some of the most notable titles that further establish the VR headgear's capability and potential.
If you are looking for a third person role playing game, then this title should be on top of your list. The narrative puts you inside a maze, where you have to solve puzzles, fight enemies and overcome challenges in order for you to save your homeland.
The game introduces some unique elements such as the way the hero loses a year of his life once he is brought back from death. But the best part is, of course, the opportunity to experience this type of RPG in the virtual space.
Eve: Valkyrie ($60)
If you have been following Oculus Rift for some time, then you probably know that this title is one of the most anticipated and hyped VR games for the platform.
The game is a first-person shooter only that you are inside a ship and the space is your battle ground. It will eventually have you slugging it out in its 16-player furballs. Your goal is to take down as many enemies as you can. The narrative is not the best but the VR graphics is astounding and it shows the beauty and breadth of the Oculus experience.
The Climb ($49)
This game roughly follows the same concept behind Ubisoft's Eagle Flight open-world VR game. But instead of flying as an eagle, you will be climbing mountains as yourself. So you get to experience breathtaking landscape as you get to higher ground.
Make no mistake, this is not a postcard perfect VR game that will let you sit back and enjoy the vistas. It will give you spine-tingling experience since you will spend a huge amount of time dangling from cliffs. There is also a fatigue system that can cause you to fall to a certain death.
Dirt Rally ($60)
You can expect a life-like racing experience in this VR title. The incredible implementation of physics is complemented by insane graphics. You only need to look at the details such as the way water streaks in the windshield or the reflection of light on water puddles to appreciate the amount of work that has been put in the game's development. At some point, you will find yourself struggling to keep your eyes on the road since you are constantly tempted to look about the landscape as you zip through the tracks.
If you have played this game before either on PC or in consoles, you will find that gameplay elements and mechanics remain the same. You can build, explore and fight mobs. However, you now have the capability to do all these within a 360 degree space, which makes the game more immersive.
