Overturn Review – A Beautiful Action-driven Game

One thing most virtual reality games lack these days is an appealing visual experience. Overturn shows it can effectively be achieved, though. More importantly, the developers combine great graphics with sci-fi, varied gameplay, and provide a worthwhile VR experience altogether. Overturn is currently available for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift a the price of $29.99. It is a bit of  a steep price tag, though.

Overturn is a Fun and Beautiful Game

As one would expect from an action-driven VR game, Overturn does a bit of handholding during the first two levels. That is not much of a hindrance, as the game wants to ensure players understand everything that happens around them. Throwing objects, for example, is quite fun, even though it is only available during select encounters. Your goal is to team up with Magi to take out the guards and escape the prison you find yourself in.

During Overturn, you will be able to sue a large variety of weapons, powerups, and even healing potions. It is evident the focus is mainly on action rather than RPG elements, which is a solid choice in this regard. Overturn does come with a few puzzles which need solving, but it isn’t necessarily difficult to get past them. Movement in the game occurs through teleportation or free locomotions. Both work fine but take some time getting used to.

On the visual front. Overturn knows no equal right now. The game looks incredibly beautiful and sometimes makes you want to stand around to admire the environment. On the other hand, the audio is a bit of hit and miss, although it heavily depends on one’s personal preferences. It fits the pace of the game quite well overall, though, and makes Overturn all the more enjoyable as a whole.

In the end, there is nothing to really dislike about Overturn in general. The multiplayer mode may not necessarily al appealing to the everyday player, though. The background story could have been delivered a lot better, but you’ll get the gist of it anyway. The current price tag is a bit steep, though, and we would recommend waiting for a sale around the $20 mark.
