SPACE RIFT - Episode 1 reviews and comments

A classic Game principle based on pioneering titles such as Wing Commander and breaking New Ground in the VR sector. Since it is also supposed to be playable On weaker systems with VR glasses, the less detailed Graphics are to be forgiven; The frame rate thanks you, of course. In general, the Game feels good. The Control passes quickly into the Blood and it actually runs smoothly all the time. A small Damper is the short Game time, but since the development team also came together for this Title and is not too big, Space Rift is already doing a lot. The Voiceover has been successful, the Story is easy to follow and you feel comfortable for the first Time in VR space (Counterexample, see Elite: Dangerous). The Game can also be played without VR glasses-but this loses the essential Effect and the real Advantage of the Whole. Some (Load) transitions are somewhat dazzling-the Game transitions from dark world space atmosphere to glaring white, which the Eyes can claim a lot after all-otherwise I haven't noticed any serious Elements in the wrong Place. Space Rift opens in the right Place, with plenty of Room up.

So Only one Nomination and no Prize! First Of all, the Game is Fun and easy to use. The Story gets a Twist towards the End of the Episode, so you can wait anxiously for the next Part. However, the Graphics could be significantly better. The Level Of detail of the Textures is rather low. In the large Station, the Walls are often monochrome. It all seems a bit like 1980. Dam the poor Synchronization. The Voices are still Fine, but here it seems not even that attention was paid to ensuring that the Text even partially fits the mouth movements. The ANIMATION of the NPC is also rather sporadic. The Women's Graphic Style (all NPC so far are Women-except for the supposed Villain) is more leaning on Manga-is a Matter Of Taste and I personally don't think that's too bad. Nevertheless, it is Fun to mine minerals with its Spaceship And slowly expand the Ship. From time to time you are disturbed by so-called Drones, which, however, after a short Time with the right Weapon do not cause any Problems. The Control with the Steam or XBoxController is good. At the Beginning, the Ship is still a bit sluggish without Upgrades, but that can be changed. Once the Game is on Offer again, you can access as a German-speaking Space hero with peace of mind. Even if the Synchro is under all Sxx. There are not so many Games in German in the VR world. I'm very excited about the next episode (s).
