Bloch said that the game would have twelve environments in total. The laser pointer is the best upgrade. I could hear the engine and the wind more clearly than before. Getting past a guard with a pass card When my car finally broke through the blizzard I saw on the horizon where exactly the name Arktika. Bandits — who you'll mostly be dispatching — come in three flavors: grunt, special, and sniper. It was a lot of fun, so much so that my 20-minute demo time flew by. Swapping these around created a completely different weapon for each configuration.
This is definitely a first-person shooter with a big arsenal and great gunplay, and the story is simply there to keep things moving along. Comfort Image courtesy 4A Games Even though the Oculus store page says the game supports 360 setups, the game is entirely a front-facing experience. Nearly a century in the future, the world has fallen into a new ice age in the aftermath of a silent apocalypse. When I am floating around on the ground using a thumbsitck, I am less immersed. From there, I was taken to a nearby airfield that had fallen to the icey cold and notorious bandits. On the other, its repetitive missions, unbalanced weapons and upgrade system and limited locomotion eventually took their toll, resulting in initially exciting levels with diminishing returns.
Levels are huge in this game, and restarting something I'd already spent 20 minutes on was annoying. To move throughout the space, you simply aim your gaze at a pre-determined area -- they're highlighted in blue or yellow -- and press the A button. The first 5 minutes or so of the preview I was simply sitting in a heavily armored car. If you've heard of the Metro series — including awesome Redux versions of and — you also might have heard about its atmospheric claustrophobia and horror that sort of seeps into your bones like the cold air of the subway tunnels you inhabit. And these overpowered freaks of nature are genuinely gruesome creatures that like popping out of the shadows and rushing at you hissing and screaming—just the thing to get your heart racing. Then I realized the floor was not off and the game just makes me feel really short.
You are a mercenary hired by the last remaining humans in Russia to protect them from marauders, bandits…and something even worse. That's the basic premise behind Arktika. You take cover as bullets wiz by. She talks at you until the game is done, but you never actually speak back or interact with her. Haven't experienced the sentence getting clipped off.

The action is enhanced thanks to the excellent graphics, which offer a terrific sense of depth and scale. All in all, this game is really, really good. At least until I have to move to the next part, in which a bright blue silhouette shows up and I point at it to teleport. As they actually attempted to stop global warming, they threw Earth into an impromptu ice age, in which the equatorial regions remained warm enough to support life. It might be how a gun looks or operates, a wonderfully interwoven storyline or just a beautiful sunset on the horizon. Unlucky for you, a glorified security guard, some hearty people are still stuck out in the frozen areas, making do against bitter conditions, bandits, and half-human terrors that the locals call Yagas. If they could mix it with regular locomotion with some type of snap cover system we might have something special.
To be fair, some of my other components are a little dated, so for me personally, it's time for an upgrade. On top of that, the precision and range offered by Oculus Touch tracked controllers takes realistic shootouts to a whole new level. It's a hundred years in a post-apocalyptic future and a second ice age has arrived. Anyway this game was designed around node based teleportation. As a mercenary hired by Citadel Security, your job is to protect one of the last colonies in the wastelands of old Russia from violent raiders, marauders, and horrifying creatures.
There were no stutters or jaggies at any point during the game, and I experienced no crashes. The graphics are not bad but the scaling is off; everything is 10% bigger than normal including my character. Interface: I found the right hand menu awkward to use as a right hander. The voice of my companion also got more difficult to hear but when I closed the window again the sound reset and the noises inside the car got much crisper. The sounds are weirdly mixed and the enemies are louder than my own guns! Picking a weapon and the mod-gun left This new weapon is modable with different options for the chamber, barrel and ammunition.
Upon returning, Viktoria informs me that the robot was reprogrammed to attack all living things; just not bandits or Yagas. For example, during my car ride I could interact with certain elements inside the vehicle. I personally find it clunky and it confounds me why the standard waist holsters aren't used. There isn't much enemy variety, but they are different enough from each other to require a solid mix of strategies during any given scenario. Game looks pretty crisp to me, didn't really find too much jagged animations. I highly recommend picking it up.
Graphics: The use of subsampling at Medium and especially High settings is unacceptable, it completely breaks any possible immersion and enjoyment, personally because of the blurriness. The graphics and audio are outstanding, gameplay has a great feel, and the weapons options and choices for customization are awesome. No matter what, I couldn't move, and there were no observable objectives near me. As an elite mercenary, your job is to protect Arktika. Those situations involve way more boy movement than playing Robo Recall. The voice acting is piss poor. The levels are designed creatively enough that your cover points always feel interesting and strategic rather than frustrating or overly simplistic.
