I can’t say I expected much from Crisis on the Planet of the Apes, but I found myself pleasantly surprised by what I did play. I’d hope other VR games will take notes on the shooting and climbing mechanics. However, awkward movement and a short run time does drag the game down some. Still, I think there’s enough here that it’s worth checking out for both fans of the movies, and anyone looking for something new with their VR headset.
Clumsy, superficial, and in many ways fundamentally broken, Crisis On the Planet of the Apes is an often infuriating VR game that plays like a bad arcade rail shooter from the early ‘90s. Far from reaching the artistic heights of the rebooted film series in whose world it takes place, it takes a silly, action-heavy approach to the material that doesn’t respect your intelligence.
Crisis on the Planet of the Apes shows VR players what it means to be an ape, not only putting them in the role of the fur covered creatures, but also requiring that they move and act like one too. By the end, I felt sufficiently ape-like. Crisis accomplished its goal of immersing me in the role, even if some of the more brilliant ape interactions were one-off moments rather than regularly used mechanics.
