Far too blunt with its message to be taken seriously, The American Dream's increasingly grating brand of satire becomes its downfall.
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.
Mechanisch sind die Baller-Minispiele, denen man in The American Dream begegnet, allenfalls durchschnittlich. Doch dieses VR-Experiment ist mehr als die Summe seiner Einzelteile, zu denen auch ein beträchtlicher Erzählanteil gehört. Denn was anfangs wie von der National Rifle Association in Auftrag gegebenes Promo-Material wirkt, entpuppt sich alsbald als bitterböse Satire mit zielsicher gesetzten Pointen und Anspielungen, die auch Videospiele nicht außen vor lassen.
