Despite the generic design of Eagle Flight’s story missions and the inability to reliably play online, it’s still a thrilling thing to experience in VR. It would be easier to write off were it a tradition, VR-free PlayStation game, but the immersion the headset offers makes it all the more fun and a good way to destress from the day.
This is the best VR experience I have had so far. The comfort on this game is great, even if flying fast around the city with real speed, the game success at making you feel comfortable all the time. This version of paris is beautiful, I love the colours and the art direction.
Eagle Flight is not a game for everyone because it will appeal rather to more casual players. Nicely done virtual reality and the bird's flight itself are, unfortunately, spoiled by not very imaginative tasks for which the game gives the impression as if it was pushed too hard to speed up the development.
Eagle Flight is a good VR game, but it's one of those games that wouldn't work otherwise. It's dated visuals and graphic style could be a turnoff to some, but it's challenge level and easy controls make the overall package enjoyable. The feeling of flight does excite the senses, and while it may not be the best title in the Playstation VR line, it's also not even close to being the worst. Pick this one up, especially if you like dogfight games and flight simulators.
Like so many other early virtual reality games, Eagle Flight feels less like a game and more like an experiment that was polished up and given a price tag. It’s a fun experiment worth experiencing, but it’s not worth $60.
Very fun VR game, as others said smooth graphics, good controls, no motion sickness. The tunnel vision I barely noticed while playing and doesn't bother me at all. It's just great flying around freely and there are several challenges to beat. Maybe not worth full price (really not many games are) but for 20 bucks or less I would really recommend this to any VR player.
Very different, and I'll give the team behind it credit for trying something different. I enjoyed playing the game a lot for a couple of hours, but the two issues with it are: 1- being very repetitive (that, the studio responsible for) 2- poor graphics (we can only blame the limitations of the PS VR).
Eagle Flight is VR game from the perspective of an eagle. Your constantly in movement in small open world going from race to race, of which their is a decent amount of types. With a great sense of speed and good graphics Eagle Flight is one the better PSVR games.
Paris looks great, and the controls are intuitive. Just wish you could take the tunnel vision off. They have done this to stop people getting motion sick, however I have no problems this way in VR, so would just like the option there in the options menu for people like me, who can handle it, to get a full screen view (like Windlands and Rigs do).
I may be in the minority here, as I've got a tough stomach and HATE fov narrowing, but it just utterly ruins the experience here for me. My biggest want for VR going forward is greatly INCREASED field of view, so it's maddening when devs intentionally narrow your vision to the size of a pinhole. Okay, that's exaggerating, but every time you turn your head, the field of view greatly reduces, perhaps by 40 or 50%. For me, this really takes me out of the experience and reinforces the already mildly present "horse-blinder effect" on psvr. It absolutely destroys all realism for me.
Now I completely understand why Ubisoft had to add this - vr makes a lot of people sick, and this is one solution to it for fast moving games (though this game isn't all THAT fast). So it should ABSOLUTELY be included, and even be on by default, so the people who get sick don't stir up bad press. What's not excusable is not including turning it off as an option. Rigs did this right - they included the fov narrowing, but gave you an option in the menus to turn it off.
Honestly it's so bad I can't get past the first chapter of the game. I keep trying and trying and it just breaks my heart. Worst experience on psvr so far.
Summary50 years after humans vanished from the face of the Earth, nature reclaimed the city of Paris, leaving a breathtaking playground. As an eagle, you soar past iconic landmarks, dive through narrow streets, and engage in aerial dog fights to protect your territory from opponents. With intuitive controls, you quickly learn to perform impress...
