what I would call a true VR game

This game is a true VR game, not a ported game like Skyrim. Some of the moving around is a bit clunky, but you can adapt to it. The story line is pretty easy to follow. The guns used are good, and you can truly aim with them when you use the gun controller that this game is designed for. One thing to note: this is a standing game, not a sitting game. The game stays calibrated "okay", though I noticed some drift in the aiming point of the gun. You can reset the aim point by pointing the gun up twice. This will take you to your second weapon, and then back to the first weapon. For the most part, you'll use the semiautomatic rifle and shotgun. Be sparing with the special ammo - you'll need it from time to time. Overall, an enjoyable game.
