    Robo Recall is an almost perfect VR arcade experience. The only downside is that the cost of entry for Oculus Rift and Touch – even with a new lower price of £598 – is still too high for many, when you include the cost of the PC needed to run it. But that’s not the game’s fault.

    It's a ridiculous reason to get into VR, but the Hollywood levels of joy here are off the charts. [May 2017, p.80]

    Robo Recall doesn’t feel like a tech demo or minuscule offering of a promising concept. It’s the only VR game I’ve walked away from thinking I was satisfied with the amount and variety of content available. Its brand of action is unique and entertaining, and I haven’t played anything like it before. Robo Recall isn’t just a great VR game. It’s a great action game, period.

    Robo Recall is an excellent demonstration of what a VR shooter can be on Oculus Touch. Thanks to highly physical action and tons of options for smashing a bunch of great-looking robots with both magically replenishing guns and your bare hands, the three available maps feel like plenty.

    Sweaty showpiece shooter for Virtual Reality that impresses with graphic splendor and high immersion and precision.

    Another of Quest’s most important launch titles, this has long been championed as one of the best first person shooters for VR headsets. At heart it’s a fairly simple wave-based shooter, in some ways a modern day interpretation of dual-stick shooters such as Robotron: 2084 and Smash T.V. You’ve got two pistols and a heavy weapon and have to mow down hordes of malfunctioning robots, but somehow it’s a lot stranger than you’d imagine.

    This game feels like a game from an alternative reality. It's a 90s light gun shooter in virtual reality. The basic game is short, but the action is intense and very much worth playing over and over again.

From pulling out a shotgun to teleporting behind enemy lines, the transitions are seamless. Action is snappy and responsive; rending limbs from enemies and firing guns are immensely satisfying. Robo Recall sets the standard for VR. Expand

Movement with the teleportation feels natural (in a front facing setup). Very humorous with an arcade game feel. Enemies are very interactive.

    Personally, it's my favorite VR experience so far

The graphics are the most clear and crisp of any other VR game. The gameplay doesn't dissapoint, this game is nuts! I discover a new cool thing every time I play. Last play session I discovered I could shoot hoops with the basketball in one of the levels. The level of polish is incredible!! The menu system is also really cool and easy to use, easily the best out of all the other VR games I played. This game is a must have if you like VR. Expand

    I recently purchased an Occulus Rift with Touch and found most experiences pleasing so I was ready to step up to a real game. Robo RecallI recently purchased an Occulus Rift with Touch and found most experiences pleasing so I was ready to step up to a real game. Robo Recall unfortunately, can barely be called a game. They removed the one thing that makes a game a game, movement. You have to 'teleport' everywhere in order to shoot anything. Is this a video game or a carnival ''shoot-the-bottle'' simulator? Super turned off by this, regardless of their motive. The only reason its getting a 5 is because it looks pretty good. Expand

Beautiful world, awesome fast paced gameplay, and a sound track that pumps you up. You reload by tossing your weapon away and holstering new ones. Or you can throw them at an enemy to reload faster. Hand guns draw from your hips, shot guns draw from over you shoulder. You can also teleport to the enemy and grab him, rips parts off for weapons or hold him like a meat shield.

    However the reason I am giving this a 3 is because I can't play past the second mission. There is a problem that according to their forums they appear to have known about since march 2017 (I am writing this in November 2017) and have not fixed. I contacted their tech support and it took 12 days for a reply which said I needed to contact Oculus (which I had already done). It's nearly been 12 days again and I still have not heard back from Epic games Tech support.

    It will be worth the purchase if the game works, but if it doesn't then you may be as screwed as I am because they appear to have no tech support for their game. That is definitely something I will consider if I ever choose to buy another game from them.
