After the Fall performs well in the gameplay department. The guns feel great, enemies are terrifying and diverse, and the 80s Apocalyptic setting of a frozen Los Angeles feels amazing to play around in. Vertigo Games has innovated on their already successful mechanics from Arizona Sunshine, taking a page from Left 4 Dead, while raising all aspects of production quality. Grinding in After the Fall is fun and worthwhile, and the multiplayer aspect works well in VR.
Even though you need a decent PC for this game, it is really good game! So much fun and thrill at the same time. I have seen people say its Left 4 Dead 2 but in VR. From a guy who has played L4D2 for years honestly that comparison is inaccurate considering you can't play as zombies as far as i can tell in this game (what i think is Left 4 dead/2 biggest differenciator) This game with its guns and general vibe for me feels way more like Killing floor 2. Obviously it's still a great game and especially at any sale, pick it up! Its tons of fun especially with your 3 other friends!
The beginning when this game launch, it was rough I must admit but after a few updates it is truly one of the better expierences to have in VR. I haven't felt like this since I first played left 4 dead. I adore what they have done with this game. They made an old idea fresh by making it VR.
If you’re a fan of Left 4 Dead and VR shooters, then After The Fall comes easily recommended. Its cross-platform co-op is an absolute blast regardless of which platform you’re playing on. And when it comes to replay value, the game’s loot and upgrade systems will keep you coming back for more as you work to craft the ultimate arsenal of zombie-killing hardware. Still, I can’t help but wish the game had just a little bit more to offer players out of the gate. Depending on which difficulty you choose, you can barrel through its five stages in just a few hours. And with just a handful of zombie types to encounter, things can start to feel a little repetitive after a while. Still, if you’re looking for Left 4 Dead-style thrills on your favorite headset, After The Fall is as close as you’re going to get, and a solid addition to any VR gamer’s library.
After the Fall is a 4-player co-op zombie shooter that pits players against the Snowbreed, a unique family of zombies that enjoy residence in post-apocalyptic snow-ridden LA. A glorious 80's setting with plenty of tropes fills the halls of this arcade shooter, begging players to kill more zombies in order to upgrade weapons and trudge through more difficult levels alongside their friends, all in the comfort of your favorite VR headset.
Like I said at the outset, After the Fall is a fun game albeit a very short one. Yes, there is an extra PvP Team-Deathmatch mode that is moderately fun if you like VR multiplayer shooters. I found it very passable, no real issue other than I just want a fan; but if you like the VR shooters like Pavlov among many others then you may have some fun in the deathmatch. The story for the game is really just an excuse to team up with friends, and that’s ok because whether you play with friends or random folks like me After the Fall does enough to make your time spent with it feel enjoyable; and really isn’t that all we really want from our video games?
After The Fall is yet another zombie VR shooter in the line of zombie VR shooters. The team that was responsible for Arizona Sunshine tries to build upon that with a cooperative experience that succeeds in that regard, but the overall experience isn’t that satisfying. The gun mechanics with the Oculus Quest 2 mostly work great and the PVP is a nice surprise, but the overall lack of current content and annoying bugs hurt the game at launch. The idea of a VR Left 4 Dead would work better if there weren’t already a ton of L4D clones on the market.
This feels like one of the first true, BIG, VR titles to be released. Vertigo Games had plenty of practice with the popular Arizona Sunshine and follow up with a stunning co-op, survival shooter. If you've played Left 4 Dead, World War Z, Warhammer Vermintide or any of the other survival shooters you'll be more than familiar with gameplay. There's plenty to do at launch but with more content promised almost immediately it's exciting times to own a VR headset, whatever platform you're on.
After The Fall is definitely a fun VR Co-op shooter, and it draws heavy inspiration from the Left 4 Dead franchise but at launch, it is lacking content. I have a feeling after about 50 hrs of play it'll become very boring to keep running the same maps with the same weapons over and over.
On the bright side, Vertigo Games has confirmed that they are going to provide more content down the line which will keep this game fresh and entertaining for many more hours!
One of the worst game ever played! For a new players there is no way to find players, because (people on Reddit says) no one is playing on Survivor difficulty... So I as a new players should play the highest difficulty... If this is great, there is something seruous wrong with you...
