Any virtual reality game which has space pirates, zombies and decent graphics in it is well worth checking out. Space Pirate and Zombies 2 is a VR game for the Oculus Rift and can be purchased for $19.99. It is a great VR game for people who like space, strategy games, and blast their way through zombies. The setting itself is worth the price of admission for sure.
Space Pirate and Zombies 2 is Excellent
Although we do agree there have been a lot of games focusing on the zombie aspect as of late, this particular game is doing a pretty good job at keeping people engaged. Your job is to pilot a customizable spaceship and explore the galaxy in search for zombies to kill. Thankfully, Space Pirates and Zombies 2 is not all about killing stuff and decorating the game world with gore either. Players get to explore the galaxy, trade with NPCs, and pillage pretty much everything you come across. It is a pretty complete game in general, and one well worth the price.
While the game may sound a lot more complex, it is pretty easy to pick up. Movement is controlled by pointing and clicking on the map. There is a lot of lore to explore, and you are actively encouraged to explore as many destinations as possible. Your ship can be upgraded, outposts can be established, and there are different factions to join. Do keep in mind pretty much everything out there is out to kill you, and should be treated as an enemy first and foremost. Space battle is quite fun as far as this game as concerned, that much is evident.
The main currency in Space Pirates and Zombies 2 is simply called “scrap”. It is good this isn’t necessarily a fancy name and one most people can relate to. It is actually possible to order custom ship parts whenever you want, assuming you have enough scrap to pay for it all. Every part of your ship can be upgraded and modified to your liking. In fact, we have a ship that is more engine than anything else, yet it can still obliterate most enemies without too many problems.
Everything in Space Pirates and Zombies 2 is done extremely well. The audio and voice acting are of a level we rarely see in VR games. The graphics are very impressive and the developers have really done an excellent job with designing ships, worlds, planets, and everything else you encounter. There is so much to do, you will effectively need to carve out time to progress in the game. That is another luxury we haven’t seen too much in the VR game so far. It is definitely worth picking up for owners of the Oculus Rift.
