EARLY ACCESS REVIEW

This is actually one of the few Oculus Games out there that caught my attention. Imagine playing an MMORPG but in VR. Zenith: The last city actually gave me that. Honestly, the game is fun at first and became repetitive as time passed by. Probably because of the fact that it is an MMORPG game. Playing in VR actually gives this game an extra level of immersion. Exploring the city, cooking, casting spells, crafting items, and meeting in-game players are actually fun things to do inside virtual reality. Just like other VR games, there are lots of squeakers out here too. Sometimes it's annoying, but you'll get used to it. The thing I actually don't like about this game is the graphics. I expected too much for a VR game to be honest. There are lots of VR games with amazing graphics. Hopefully, Zenith will improve on that. As of now, it looked like a PS3 game. The servers are somewhat unstable but still playable. Hoping to see some more improvements in the future. Lastly, I realized that I stopped playing this game is actually because of the fact that it doesn't have a strong storyline unlike other RPG games out there like Genshin Impact.
