Falcon Age from @outerloopgames was released yesterday, I managed to get a few hours in.
As others have said, how much you like this game depends on how much you bond with your Falcon , I bonded alot, every so often I found myself doing the whistle command to call my falcon to my arm to make sure it was OK.
Falcon Age can be played both in and out of vr and with Move controllers or a Dual shock 4, I played sitting with the moves. There's a story mode and an Imprint mode, story mode seems to have some combat and imprint mode sounds like it won't have combat.
I played the story mode, I've really enjoyed what I've seen so far.
There's some good and some bad, I really enjoyed the parts with the Falcon, I loved that to heal your Falcon you can stroke it, telling it to attack the enemy's also felt good.
The combat is simple but engaging, though I hope more elements are added later in the game.
I also really liked that the robot at the beginning was using pets as an incentive to work harder.
There is also a golf type mini game if you want a break from the main game, there are also different courses in different areas, I found the golf game difficult at first but got the hang of it eventually, mastering these modes should add more playtime.
I also unlocked a couple of toys for my Falcon which was good, however their animations were way too short.
As with any VR game, some features take some getting used to, at one point I needed to use my hammer to break some rocks, a classic prisoner pass time.
The problem being I couldn't find the hammer, I had just picked up some tools but couldn't find the menu that would allow me to select it, eventually after noticing a shadow I realised the hammer was on my hip.
I had to reach down and pick it up, it would have been nice if the context menu mentioned the game put items on your hips, I will try to remember in future games to look down more.
It was a while into the game that I realised I had a map, and even though I knew the buttons to turn I instinctively only used those buttons on my right hand, it was some time until I found out I could use those buttons on the other controller to rotate, once I realised this movement became easier.
The NPC's dialogue was a bit off too, most lines were just text but some was spoken, this was a bit strange, what was spoken though was also a touch too quiet.
That's my thoughts for now, have you played it? What did you think?
Heres my playthrough.
