    Defector, although not without its flaws, is an action-shooter that takes advantage of VR very well and inserts narrative cues that should not be underestimated.

    Defector is such a mixed bag. The production values are top-notch as you’d expect from Twisted Pixel and Oculus Studios, and Defector employs great ideas for an exciting adventure, most of the time. A little more gameplay variety would’ve been nice, jumping out of windows, rappelling down ravines, climbing the Effiel Tower in a suit, you know, stupid spy stuff. It should have been Oculus Rift’s answer to Blood & Truth, however, the experience just misses the mark.

    Twisted Pixel Games and Oculus have created a wonderfully immersive and polished VR experience with Defector. Your journey will leave you wanting more so much so that you’re almost bound to go back for seconds. The graphics, sound design, voice acting, and freedom of movement are a great representation of what VR gaming can be today, and everyone should give it a try.

    Defector serves up some high-octane set pieces that are clearly inspired by the myriad of Mission Impossible films, but is hobbled by a lackluster arcade shooter and toothless interactions with NPCs to boot. Its bog standard action movie narrative is mostly forgettable, but users may forgive many of Defector's cons considering its $20 launch price.

    I was really looking forward to this game but it is absolute trash and not worth your time even for free. The narrative and writing isI was really looking forward to this game but it is absolute trash and not worth your time even for free. The narrative and writing is terrible. The controls and inventory system are broken.

    The game is packed full of boring repetitive tasks to make it longer, such as rolling dice for 30 minutes so you can progress. The dialogue system isn't fun either. This is probably the worst game I've played in VR and definitely the most disappointing.

    first VR game (of +20 action titles) which made me feel uncomfortable and even motion sick. i got no problem from the freefall-mission butfirst VR game (of +20 action titles) which made me feel uncomfortable and even motion sick. i got no problem from the freefall-mission but from the simple walking, endless boring scenes/ looking around inside airplane.. a lot of RPG style talking(choosing answers) is not what u expect from the action loaded trailers. there is a bug with oculus rift S which makes the game even more annyoing and allmost unplayable. i quiet the game after 30mins (didnt even kill one enemy at that poin) of unpleasant experience. also i saw yt reciew claiming after first good mission game gets worse..but i didnt even make it until there Expand
