Solitaire VR Review – An Interesting Take on an old Game

Solitaire is one of these video games people waste a ton of time on without even realizing it. The fact one can now play Solitaire in virtual reality will only make for a more appealing venture overall. This game is incredibly cheap, as it costs $2.99. Owners of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift can pick the game up on Steam. Solitaire VR is, contrary to our expectations, a pretty fun game.

Solitaire VR is Quite a Blast

We didn’t have too much expectations from Solitaire VR. After all, there is only so much about this card game one can effectively optimize for virtual reality. Those initial assessments had to be adjusted pretty quickly, a splaying this card game in VR is far more fun than we had ever hoped. It is nice to be pleasantly surprised in this regard every now and then. Not everyone will like Solitaire VR, but that is only to be expected.

As one would expect from this type of game, there are different game modes to enjoy. Solitaire isn’t just one type of game either, as this VR version presents them all quite well. Options include Klondike, Yukon, Freecell, and quite a few others. Moreover, you can play this game in different rooms within a haunted building. It certainly ups the ante quite a bit, to say the very least. A smart decision by the game developers, as it gives Solitaire VR a more unique look and feel.

One thing some players may notice is how there is some judder when moving your head. We ran into this issue ourselves, although tinkering around with the settings will alleviate these concerns pretty quickly. Other than that, Solitaire VR seems to run just fine without any major problems whatsoever. We haven’t seen any major glitches or crashes, which is a positive sign.

Fans of Solitaire will certainly appreciate the VR setting and the overall look and feel of the game. It can be played sitting down, which is rather convenient. However, some players have noticed they need to reset the sitting position, which can’t be done within the game itself for some reason. Instead, it can only be done through the VR headset settings itself. This is something the developers will hopefully address in a future patch, although it is not a deal breaker by any means.
