Finally We Have A Mech Game In VR! ARCHANGEL First 20 Minutes Of Gameplay

For the longest time I have been wanting the experience of being in a Mech in VR and thanks to ARCHANGEL It is finally here! Overall I was impressed with just how well done this game is. Coming from Skydance I had no doubt this would be extremely cinematic but I wasn't prepared for just how much it would affect my connection towards the characters. With the great graphics, sound, mocap animations and acting I was truly sucked into this games story. The only thing I think that could have made this a much better experience would have been getting it off the rails and giving me full control of my Mech. I went into this game thinking I was not going to enjoy it as much as I did after reading that it was an on rails experience but I guess due to the fact that the rest of the game is so damn good it was easy to overlook this and just enjoy the ride.

    It's a mount for the leap Motion sensor. Thanks for posting the vid! I've been wondering about this game since it came out for the Rift a few days ago.

    Yea I just played it today, this is similar to my experiences. I went in expecting to be bored and it sucking but I was very entertained. Being a fan of Mechs and having played Mech games since the early 90's and online with multplayer battletech,3025,mw4, mwo... this game checked almost all the boxes for me. I was really geeking out when I first got into the cockpit. I'd say it's like an interactive universal studios ride or something and I got my money's worth. After about 10 mins I didn't really care that I wasn't driving the Mech, I just imagined I was in a 2 seater and I was commander/gunner lol.

    Sorry but this game is reported to be an on-rails shooter.  No way am I interested in any on-rails game.
