Using VR’s unique potential to tell powerful and insightful stories with stark, reflective criticism is on display in ways we haven’t seen before. The humor won’t land for everyone and the message will likely get misinterpreted or lost by some, but The American Dream raises questions that are absolutely worth discussing regardless of your stance on gun laws. This VR experience, despite the quirky visual style, is not for the faint of heart.
Ironically, The American Dream’s political aspiration is both its selling point and its downfall. It doesn’t say anything beyond what you can already discern from the game’s trailers, but there’s still plenty of fun and laughs to be had in this offbeat depiction of America. Though not entirely successful in its attempt, The American Dream is still worth of being experienced for its boldness in using VR technology to address real-world issues.
With the lack of visual fidelity on offer as well (things are often quite angular, or clipping through each other), The American Dream falls short of its ambition to be a witty, entertaining little VR shooter. Instead, it becomes rather dull rather fast as you do simple tasks again and again, and the story isn't nearly funny enough to excuse the bland experience it's providing. It may be worth it for an afternoon, but there are plenty of other VR shooters on the market that are more worthy of your time instead.
