Play a new and unique game in VR with a mixture of gaming genres lumped together into a single Sandbox experience.
Experience a gaming arena in VR like no other with oodles and oodles of fun in multi-player mode.
Shoot down the most ridiculous looking AI opponents with equally clunky intelligence and movements a game could ever have.
Computer games come in all forms and game play and that holds just as true in VR with the difference of having the sensation of being really inside the game. Most games however conform to a single genre or a mixture of a few to still be able to steer the game in a particular narrative like a story line whether sequential or random or simply to achieve certain objectives. After all, the reason as to why one is playing the game in the first place should be there.
With the advancements in VR, developers have been busy trying to figure out means and ways how to put VR to better use. It then comes as no surprise that an experimental game mish-mash of sorts is released to probably just see if it will catch-on or not. In today's advent of Social Media, even a basic chat application can be loaded with game features just to add more to it's value and content.
Drop In VR can be classified as such an experimental game. Experimental in the sense that it is a mish-mash of games people or gamers have been used to playing via computers/game machines or in real life. These are games like Ping-Pong, Checkers, Table Soccer or even jumping up and down on a Trampoline. The game is also a Sandbox in a sense since the games VR world is loaded with a variety of game and sports equipment as well as designated areas and arenas where one could literally fashion one's own game which could be played solo or with others through the games multi-player mode.
Being in VR offers a more in-depth experience as compared to playing them via the usual digital conventional means. The game starts you at the Drop In lobby which is practically a virtual area with a great outdoor view with at the moment, a couple of garage looking sports gyms loaded with everyday games that people play. Aside from the Ping-Pong table, you've got a Basketball hoop, Weights, a Checker board, gaming equipment like Baseball bats, various balls including Soccer and Rugby, Golf equipment and a lot more. You can use these at an elevated Soccer field/Arena or simply anywhere in the expanse of the game's outdoors.
The view is amazing with mountains in the backdrop. As Drop In VR is a mish-mash mixed genre watchamacallit thingamajig game, the place includes a shooting range for FPS game play. All sorts of weapons are available to satisfy one's need to cause chaos and mayhem, of course all in the name of fun. Weapons like various guns, ammo and gear can be found at the shooting area. There's even a Bow and Arrow options for those who like to square it off ala Hunger Games style. You've got grenades, pistols, rifles, launchers, and an abundant supply of re-spawns should you get kicked in the butt. Just use your in-game belt for your carried inventory.
The game currently has a couple of FPS solo player missions. Since the game is "A Work In Progress" one cannot expect the kind of quality one can get from a well polished finished game. Even those have to continually update themselves. Drop In VR has currently two combat solo player missions where you have to play against the currently clunky AI bots who not only move that way but look that way as well. While the background and even the object graphics are a thing to behold (in their own right), the characters give you the feel of either playing (why oh why?) Roblox or MineCraft.
Regardless, playing Drop In via multi-player can get chaotically fun/funny especially when everyone around agrees on a sandbox Battle Royale with everyone each for himself. The gaming environment is loaded as well with lots of vehicles laying around from automobiles to choppers and even a C-130 military transport plane. Almost anything and everything that can be grabbed can be turned into a weapon. You can even play Soccer while shooting each other and name the game "Soccer Punch" Ahahahaha.
There is still so much to be desired in terms of development and game play as far as drop In is concerned but if the objective is to have Fun, the game has pretty much achieved it's goal. After all, one can hardly blame a game's lack of polish and experimental feel when it's free2play. The characters alone will send you chortling your heart out despite their blocky appearance as everyone from a mere demonstrating dude or gal on the street to a fully armed Antifa and of course the mean looking riot police can bring life and loads of laughs to the game.
Drop In VR can be considered at this point a one of a kind VR game with a lot of positive potential in terms of growth and development. Anyone who downloads it (except for the very odd exception) will definitely find the game worth while to add to one's VR collection. Even by one's lone-some self, jumping up and down on the Trampoline will bring a smile and even a laugh to one's VR experience.
