This was meant to mimic a tabletop war game in an immersive virtual reality arena, and while fast-paced, fun, and accessible, without online multiplayer, it feels a bit half-baked. There are two modes to its gameplay. There's the main Campaign mode -- where you select unique mercenary commanders, each with a story to tell, and unlock your way through the single-player story against AI armies -- but there's also Arcade mode, which is a local multiplayer option allowing players to have more control over their armies while facing off against a friend through the game's Social Screen interface. To be specific, one player has the PlayStation VR headset and Move controllers, while the other looks at the TV screen and holds the Dual Shock controller. It works, and it's better than not having any multiplayer, but it's not as good as including online multiplayer with voice support. Overall, this sub-$20 indie game is fun but not too deep; however, those who enjoy tabletop gaming -- and perhaps those with fond memories of placing toy tanks onto a battlefield as a child -- will also get something out of League of War: VR Arena.
