Blair Witch VR: Oculus Quest Edition, or how to buy adult diapers is no longer a shame. As you can see, today a new moment begins in the Xbox area in the that we are going to diversify our content a little. In the desire to add quality content to our (your) website, we decided to start adding VR content.
It won’t be the most content, but it will be a little extra for our readers, for those who, in addition to the Xbox, are planning to give or have already taken the step towards VR. In the case that concerns us today, we will analyze the video game of Bloober team, Blair witch, in its version for Oculus VR.
The creators of The way Here they bring us a new version of their great horror game, which we previously analyzed here, with which I will focus on the differences and timeliness regarding the analysis.
We are not going to lie or hide it. We are facing a match VERY suitable for the Oculus Quest viewer, with all the supposed advantages and disadvantages.
Blair Witch VR: Oculus Quest Edition (Say that without choking) It works on less powerful hardware than a new generation console
However, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look good, what it does mean is that we can’t expect the graphics quality from a PC or Xbox One because it is clear that we are not going to get it.
That being said, the game look and move with ease, and it perfectly fulfills its purpose, which is to keep us in continuous tension without taking us out of the experience.
Even so, as you can see in the following official capture, there is fog that cuts off vision for a few steps, and that It is much more visible during the day than at night, the textures are generally of poor quality and the resolution of the glasses does not do it a favor. at this particular stage.
In a horror game, which when you start the game warns you that it would be best if the first thing to do is put on headphones, you can imagine that the sound is going to be an essential part of the experience.
What you would never imagine is that you were going to find a sound experience almost at the level of, for example Hellblade: Senuaof Sacrifice.
At least one humble servant is what he felt. It is true that in VR it is very important that the sound perfectly accompanies the visual and playable content, otherwise it would be out of the experience.
From a fallen tree, to the sound of stones, to the barking of your dog, everything is very well oiled and this perfectly shows that this port is not at all something that is done in a hurry and running, if not by taking all the necessary precautions to be cool in VR.
But, as a good VR title, where all of its soul lies is in its playability. This game does all the right things about virtual reality. You can interact with most of the objects around you, this allows you an oppressive and immersive atmosphere, you can stroke Bullet and throw sticks at him. You can stroke the dog.
The game is terrifying, and from the first moment it gets dark, you know you’re going to have a hard time. Every time Bullet walks away and you feel the chills of your illness, you feel them in your own body.
When you need to take a camera rewind as if you are doing it in real life, see the visions that are seen in this game and listen to the sounds, this is when you realize that graphics are not everything
Also, as a good VR game, we have multiple modes of movement. Typical teleportation, which I personally cannot stand, or sectional turns instead of smooth, all to avoid the dreaded motion sickness. However, it is very likely that in Oculus Quest 2, with sus 90hz (when enabled for games) Solve the ballot to many more people.
The main difference with the flat version of the game is that while the atmosphere is the same, the feeling is not. The feeling of discomfort you feel in the flat version, here is an almost continuous feeling of suffocation and discomfort. All because of the greater immersion that this sight causes.
The duration of the game, like the original, concerns the 6 hours. Although my experience in VR games indicates that horror games, in VR, they last longer. Also, like the original, the ideal is to give it several passes to finish seeing all the roads.
Finally, Blair Witch VR: Oculus Quest Edition it’s a great game outside of VR, and without a doubt earn many integers played with the additions it gives to each VR horror game. So we recommend that you play if possible, but if you can expect a reduction in play, that’s even better.
