Fantastic VR shooter

If you’ve ever fancied experiencing what it would be like to take part in military action but don’t fancy taking a bullet then Onward is for you. This isn’t a COD type game, there are no gun cross-hairs or HUDs just your own skill and wit. There are of course a variety of weapons to take down your foes from assault rifles, snipers and pistols to accessories such as smoke grenades. The actual handling of the weapons is impressive and it does in fact feel like you and the guns are one.

onward shooterOnward currently features a bunch of different missions each of which comes with varying environments (including dynamic time/ weather) which help to increase the immersive feel of the game. The plus point here is that its one of the best multi-player (4 Vs 4) games out there with some great online game mechanics.
