For some reason, we do not see all that many VR games in a Western setting. One would expect such a throwback to the good old days of gunslinging to be quite popular among game developers. That is not the case whatsoever right now, though. Guns ‘N Stories: Bulletproof VR is a more than welcome change in this regard. The game itself is all about shooting enemies with revolvers and rockets. Although that last thing has nothing to do with Spaghetti westerns whatsoever, it provides a pretty interesting experience.
Guns ‘N Stories: Bulletproof VR is Pretty Cool
It has to be said, most games involving shooting in virtual reality are either terrible or an absolute blast. Whenever a new game comes around, one always had to hold their breath to see which side of the spectrum it will fall on. In the case of this game, it is a pretty fun experience overall, despite a somewhat flimsy background story. You play as a bounty hunter whose woman is abducted by a brute and his minions. It is anything but an original concept, but if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.
One thing this game has going for it is the hilarity. Guns ‘N Stories: Bulletproof VR is quite fun in its own way and has quite a few quirks to chuckle at. The tale itself is told by a drunk who tries to woo his grandson. All tales get slightly more enthusiastic and ridiculous depending on how inebriated the grandfather is. While the initial stage is pretty boring, things pick up pretty quickly. That is a good thing, mind you, otherwise, it would have been pretty bland overall.
While players wouldn’t associate rockets, miniguns, and massive brutes with Guns ‘N Stories: Bulletproof VR, it is exactly what we have gotten This only adds to the overall hilarity of the game, though, which can only be considered to be a good thing. The game is currently available for HTC VIve and Oculus Rift and works well on both platforms. The visuals in this game are pretty impressive, as is the overall gameplay. This is not your average boring wave shooter by any means, as it offers a full-fledged gaming experience a la Indiana Jones.
Unfortunately, the overall gameplay tends to get pretty repetitive pretty quickly, which is a shame. The waves of enemies are also pretty long, all things considered. This doesn’t take away from the great graphics and impressive voice acting, though. It is a nicely paced action game and one that isn’t over within 45 minutes either. Although the latter parts of the game feel more like a grind, we had plenty of fun with Guns ‘N Stories: Bulletproof VR. Well worth the time and money if this is your type of game.
