In small doses, Stormland soars above completely different VR shooters. As I scale its large sci-fi bases, each vantage stage makes me rethink my plan for dispatching the group of robots beneath. I could glide by means of a window, arms outstretched like Superman, to get behind a machine gunner and rip the properly being tank from its once more. I could hurl myself up a close-by tower using fluid climbing controls, and prepare a sniper’s nest. Or I could seize the discarded gun at my ft and tear it apart with my bare fingers, turning each half into an explosive hunk of metal, in a position to throw. At its biggest, having fun with Stormland rings a bell in my memory of clearing outposts in a Far Cry recreation, nevertheless with rather more freedom.
Sadly, Stormland isn’t made to be carried out in small doses, and it stretches its combat too thinly over a five-hour story and an expansive open world endgame previous. It must be the first appropriate live-service VR shooter—every Tuesday its world will change, with new map layouts, enemy modifiers and a expertise reset—nevertheless as quite a bit as I benefit from its moment-to-moment gunplay and movement, its quest building is just too repetitive to take care of me coming once more week after week.
