I’ve played this series in the mobile incarnation and have always thought it was at the top of that category. So of course I was super excited when I found this in the app lab! One of the few games I’ve bought immediately. If you’re looking for a LOADED single player experience, I cannot recommend this enough. I’ve often wondered how they fit everything into this game. There’s the campaign, which is divided into sections. I’m halfway through pt. 2 and have already put in probably 10 hours. Part 1 was like 12 or 15 stages. There’s a dedicated side quest menu. There’s lone wolf missions. There’s survival missions. There’s wave missions…. There’s just so much to do it’s unbelievable that it’s a native oculus title. Now let’s talk about the RPG elements. You’ve got upgradable weapons and armor pieces. You’ve got upgradable attachments for all those as well. You’ve got upgradable skills. You’ve got upgradable and unlockable abilities. You’re constantly finding better weapons and gear as you play… it’s just ridiculous the amount of RPG elements in this and people don’t mention it when looking for RPG titles (which is severely lacking on the native oculus). Absolutely the best $20 bucks I’ve spent on a game this far. I’ve got probably 30 games. This is one of the 4 I’m constantly coming back to. If you’re looking for the most underrated title in the App Store, you’ve found it! If I had to find one grievance I’d have to say the melee combat could feel better. If you’re on the fence, I guarantee you will not be disappointed in this game. Until a true RPG title is released, this scratches the itch nicely and shows what’s possible. Combine that with zombie killin’…. C’mon man!
