Space Pirate Trainer DX: 2 in 1

Wonderful game from early VR products, modernized and updated with really original ideas for non-single-player street-scale experiences

Strong sides:

  • Nice mechanics and feel/feedback from the items you use
  • Gradually increasing complexity
  • Interesting implementation of an energy shield that can be used for protection
  • Energetic soundtrack in the heavy music genre
  • Recently added multiplayer mode with a contestable elements
  • Real MIND BLOWING street-scale mode in the recent Oculus Quest update

Weak sides:

  • Quite boring after playing for a while
  • Classic (non-street-scale mode) is not very replayable and has rather monotonous mechanics.
  • Street-scale mode (only for Oculus Quest) needs very complicated space (half of basketball/football field, at least 30x30 meters) and internet connection

Summary and conclusion:

For its time, it was a bright shooting range with original solutions. The game still remains a good attraction and a good start for newbies in VR. The recently released update with Arena (street-scale) mode is really awesome, but it's quite difficult for most players to find a suitable space to play and it's available only on Oculus Quest headsets.
