    A fascinating mix of RTS and tower defense that uses the VR in a smart way and provides a level of challenge far from trivial.

    This combination of strategy and tower defense turns out pretty impressive in VR. There's challenge and variation in abundance, though the game would do well with a more active online community.

    Though it is basic, Korix is a great game to play in VR because it’s real time strategy games couldn't be a more perfect use of the medium. At $20, the game offers a fair amount of content spread between an offline campaign and skirmish mode. There’s also multiplayer, where up to four players can play against or with each other against human and AI players. Sadly, no one was playing so I didn’t get a chance to try it out. That’s probably for the best though. I can’t fathom going against a human player--I’d be ripped to shreds! Korix is a great entry level RTS that uses the technology of the PlayStation VR in a spectacularly immersive fashion.

    Korix is a good strategy, tower defence title for PlayStation VR with solid gameplay, bright and vibrant visuals, and outstanding motion control tracking. Unfortunately, there are some issues with guidance for new players, and only having a small online community means the multiplayer component may go underutilised. Still, this title is definitely worth picking up if you have a few friends who you want to nuke.

    The difficulty curve quickly steepens - perhaps too quickly. [June 2017, p.107]

    Korix delivers intense real-time action with an intuitive way to control the chaos. Multiplayer is a real blast as you can see each other’s floating avatar mask to really make it feel like you’re occupying the same space together. The new player experience could use some work, but there’s enough depth here to keep strategy fans busy for a while.

    The enemy’s AI is non-existent; it will spawn slowly strengthening hordes of soldiers, but otherwise it won’t do anything. If you can get a multiplayer game going there’s a bit more strategy involved, I guess, but there isn’t much of a community wrapped around this one, leaving Korix feeling like a game that had a good idea buried away in there, but fails to give people the VR strategy experience that they’ll be looking for.

An actual full VR game with online game play, just played a match, got my ass kicked but was an amazing experience, if this online community expands, it will be a very lasting game, it has a learning curve, and the tutorial does not tell you a lot, but the discovery is half the fun and it is incredibly enjoyable not just as an "experience" but as an actual game Expand

It brings some nice features to the RTS/Tower-defence genre which I haven't seen before. Using the Move-Controllers really sets this apart, as you feel like you are a master tactician, building units and towers to defend or capture new territory. It's also one of a few RTS games on the PlayStation console. I can only hope that other developers are going to follow this approach, as this shows that strategy games not only belong to the pc world.

    Some of the features I enjoyed:
    - flawless Move-Controller support
    - graphics are flawless (polygon/pixel style)
    - difficulty ramps up quickly, but always leaves room for self improvement
    - campaign and multiplayer (coop/vs)
    - controls are easy to learn

    Things that would make this a 10 for me:
    - Map Editor: creating custom maps would give this more longevity
    - I would wish for more types of foot soldier/tank units, as this could enhance the strategy aspect of the game

    One of the best games on PSVR.
    Tower defence meets RTS.
    This is also a full game and not just an "experience" like so many other titles.

    The graphics are pretty simplistic but the trade off is the game runs incredibly smoothly.
    Full campaign, Skirmish and 4 player vs/coop multiplayer.
    Highly recommended.

The feature that allows a player to freely hoverThis game has excellent frame rate, and there isn't even a close hint of motion sickness. The feature that allows a player to freely hover around the environment makes it feel like I am playing a board game with live pieces. The developer is constantly pushing fixes, and minor content updates to the game. There is also a short single player campaign, but the real fun is in the multiplayer. Expand
