When a game such as Stunt Kite Master comes our way, we are never entirely sure what to expect. Flying a kite is not necessarily something on our bucket list by any means. Given how a lot of games still induce simulator sickness, it seems like a very dangerous combination, to say the very least. That said, Stunt Kite Master for the PlayStation VR is a pretty decent game. For the price of $9.99, there is some fun to be had.
Stunt Kite Master Isn’t Overly Exciting
A lot of people may have vastly different expectations when it comes to Stunt Kite Master. Flying a kite in VR is not something that excited people just by the sound of it. Then again, flying a kite on top of a mountain during a blizzard is something we’d rather do in virtual reality rather than real life. Overall, the game does kite flying surprisingly well, even though it is not necessarily the type of game most people are looking for. Luckily, the different options for controlling the game certainly help out in this regard.
Players can choose different DualShock 4 options to control the kite or use the Move controllers. This latter option is far more difficult to control, but it also makes the game a lot more fun. In Stunt Kite Master, you can choose between the different modes. The first option is a timeless mode to chill out and fly your kite until the novelty wears off. For practicing your skills, this mode is certainly advisable, as it introduces players to the different mechanics such as controlling wind. Kite Snake is a bit more advanced, as you need to move the kite around the play area to collect stars.
Last but not least, there is Outrun, where you have to dodge planes with your kite. It will require a lot of skill and practice to make this venture successful, but it’s the most rewarding game mode in our opinion. You even get to make the RC planes crash, which is pretty interesting. This does require a fair bit of luck and timing to pull off, though. All of the stages also have different environments to explore, which is pretty interesting. There is a fair bit of replayability in this regard, although not everyone will be a fan of Stunt Kite Master.
One big miss in this game is the audio, which is absolutely atrocious. The collectibles in this game more than make up for it, though, but it may not be enough to convince most people right away. If you have no intention of flying a kite, don’t bother getting the game. If you want a cheap VR game with a few different game modes and different content to enjoy in a relaxing manner, Stunt Kite Master is certainly worth trying. It is unclear why this game is cheaper on PC, but you can’t have everything, I guess.
