A GEARVR NEWS QUICK REVIEW
Take on the role of a newly enlisted pilot in the deadliest squad in the Ansharian arsenal. Bring the fight to the Nergal in dazzling ship-to-ship battles in deep space and lush planetary surfaces. Utilize a variety of weapon and ship power ups such as missiles, overcharged lasers, Tesla blasts, and portal generators to transform your fighter into a powerful war-machine and cut down the Nergal forces wherever the fight may take you.
Anshar Wars 2 is the 2nd game in this series by the developers known as OZWE. Anshar Wars 1 was only a tech demo, but I guess they wanted a fresh approach. In the new title, you are given radically different space-faring missions with actual objectives and a feeling of advancement propelled by some fairly compelling storytelling. The graphics are artistic and colorful, evoking wonder and awe despite this game
having only been rendered in 2D during the battles. * This is another title that could have scored nearly a 10, but the fact that I can’t recommend it for such a score saddens me. VR was made for 3D, not 2D!
One good thing here is that the game controls are far superior to Anshar Wars 1, with the inclusion of game pad support. In addition, the painted backdrops are so stunning on each level you’ll crash your ship trying to get a good look at them. There is a lot of variety in missions and in power ups, and you won’t get bored of the scenery any time soon, since it changes up often like the latest Star Wars movie did.
This is one of the best titles out for GearVR, but I can’t rate it any higher than 7 due to a lack of stereoscopy. However, when the S7 comes out its new Adreno 530 CPU (which has +40% more rendering power and -40% less heat production) then I hope OZWE will
do a patch enabling the 3D rendering mode as I believe the next round of phones will be able to pull it off. I will come back and actually play this game quite a bit at that time. Because, right now, I’m just looking for the 3D games that have a high sense of Presence to enjoy first.
If you want to read more about this, *and see the apology I’ve just had to make to OZWE who claim the game really is 3D, see my Full Article here:
