Very Very Beautiful The Lab Simply shows all The POSSIBILITIES you have or could have with the HTC Vive. Archery, In particular, is always the Racer on Parties. Would I like the Lab to be further developed or if more Games appear on its Basis. :D Pro: Clearly the Software for VR, Accordingly-VR Implementation outstanding-resolution is transferred flawlessly VR-graphical Implementation generally succeeded Contra:-meeeehr davoooon:D-HTC Vive only (just because of the Controllers), which of course does not hurt either It is clear that Steam offers a great Platform to its own Product. ;) So the Lab is already a Reason to buy the HTC instead of the Oculus. A Multiplayer, for Example when Archery With a few other Areas would still be chic. ;) Mfg Arcu (Review Reupload because of Profile Hater):P

AMAZING the perfect experience to discover the possibilities of HTC Vive! Like all the works of valve, the whole is very neat, we feel immediately the attention to detail, both technically and artistically. It's beautiful, it's well done and as usual, valve allows to add a good hint of humor. A real treat and a good omen for the sequel! If you want to show what virtual reality is to your friends it is the necessary passage. Sit comfortably in the couch and watch them play. Fans of video games or not, young and old, everyone has only one word in the mouth: "WOAH, awesome". The experiences offered are superb, very successful and immersive, there is for all tastes. Only small downside: it lacks a scoreboard! It might be really nice to know how much point we scored in archery, a challenge between friends and online that would improve replayability. * MAJ * valve has released an excellent update including scoreboards!!! To conclude, a very nice glimpse of what virtual reality holds when a large Studio is at the realization, it is too good, too short and we ask again!!! 10/10, THANK YOU VALVE!
