Flying Aces VR gameplay
Gameplay is fairly simplistic in its set up. You use the left thumbstick to control the pitch and bank of the plane whilst the right thumbstick controls the rudder. The controller buttons sort out your speed. Up, up and away you go. Overall don’t expect award winning graphic however it does achieve 75 frames per second so it’s fairly smooth. There are various missions you’re meant to take part in from bombing runs to dog-fights – no high tech missiles here, just got old point and short.
This game is intended for use with a high powered VR headset such as the Oculus Rift and a gaming PC. The following minimum requirements to run Flying Aces include Windows 64bit, Oculus runtime.
