    If there was a reason to own an Oculus Rift and discount every other VR headset then Stormland is it. This is thanks to a combination of elements from the intuitive free-roaming, to the action-pack guns fights and the wealth of options available. Plus, the fact Stormland looks gorgeous, once atop a spire or cliff, looking out over the cloud covered vista is awe inspiring. Every Oculus Rift owner need this in their library, as Stormland could very well be the VR videogame of 2019.

    Stormland has delivered on its ambitious vision of making VR open-world adventuring a reality, thanks to smart design on both macro and micro scales. While there's some rough edges, the game brings enjoyable combat, innovative world traversal, and satisfying interactions to the table in a way rarely executed as well on their own, let alone together in a single experience. With fully-featured two-player co-op and the potential for long term replayability in the Cycling World, Stormland sets a new bar while at the same time laying out a well-formulated framework that will benefit VR games of the future.

    Although there is some decline on the variety front even with the excellent insertion of the cyclical reset, Stormland confirms another success for the Californian team, as well as the umpteenth production able to give more and more value to Oculus libraries.

    Stormland is a very ambitious open world shooter that provides a huge amount of variety and freedom in terms of gameplay. Insomniac Games shoots straight in the heart of VR fans and could also convince the VR sceptics.

    Fascinating action adventure with a convincing motion scheme – but also problems in terms of AI and weapon handling.

    Thanks to its amazingly crafted world, Stormland is one of the most interesting VR experiences. It may lack some variety (and the stealth mechanics are more than improvable), but it shows the path to follow for captivating VR games.

I have 25 hrs in the game and it will probably take me another 10 to finish the game with the 'secret ending' unlock.
    Gunplay is adequate, enemies are repetitive, but gameplay combined with traversal system is addicting. Campaign takes about 5 hrs to complete, but Stormland encourages the player to go through the cloud gameworld unlocking more difficulties and secret audiologs that supplement the backstory of the game.

    Overall, while not as great as Asgard's Wrath, Stormland is still a worthy title based on the traversal mechanic alone.

The running, jumping, grappling, gliding and slipstream-riding - in combination with the solid shooting and stealth mechanics - keep the action fluid and varied. There's always more than one way to come at a situation, in traversal as much as in tactics.

    The game is visually striking and, as far as I could tell, free of any notable glitches or bugs. This is about as good as Oculus gets.

    The story is an intriguing bit of science fiction, but the main campaign is quite short and does consist mainly of gathering resources to upgrade yourself and your gear, and hunting for McGuffins to move things along. There's just enough mystery lingering at the end to maybe entice the player back for the end-game "cycle".

    I've just finished the main story and started the first post-game cycle - venturing through cloudscapes that transform every week, with rewards for persistence. While the delightful gameplay may keep me coming back for a while, or just checking in from time to time, I don't see my self getting too deeply invested too much into this game.

If you looked through all theBefore buying this game, you have to take one simple thing to consideration. What do you expect from it. If you looked through all the reviews, then you know what re you buying. Though it has a good lore and great premise, it is not a story drivven shooter, but kind of a loot shooter in some way. Game tricks you fisrt 4 hours making you beleave that you are playing a great story and varried shooter. After first 4 hours you take a bitter pile, thats all of the story. Everything that was before is just a tutorial in game mechanics. Story ends just when things get very and very interesting and for the next 7-10 hours after doesnt develop at all. Game turns it self in total different play stile. In each real time 7 days the world resets making you leveling up from the start accelerating the difficulty and changing the levels around you. So your primary objective is the same over and over and over and over and over time. Circle after the circle. Though gameplay is just a blast, but if you came here for story, pass it by. You wont get anything here after 4 hours tutorial. It is basicaly a grind and leveling up your character type of gameplay and collecting the pieces of lore. For me it was a missed opportunity, but still, you cant deny an absolut blast in VR gameplay achivement Expand
