End Space brings some more space shooter action to the Playstation VR. It enters the field with popular games in this genre such as Eve Valkyrie, but what End Space offers is a single player campaign rather than an online shooter. But, is a single player aspect enough to make the game stand out?
With End Space being a single player game, as you would expect it brings with it a story, even thought it is a very basic story. The story comes as introductions to the missions, which are given to you by masked figure that stands next the central console (your mission map). The simple nature of the story is you are contractor who is tasked with bringing down a rebellion that is part of a well-funded organisation.
When it comes down the gameplay, as you are taking on ships in dog fights in space, it comes with what you would expect with titles of this sort. The idea is to pilot the ship and take these enemies with the weapons you have at your disposal. The game starts out with a little introduction, which will give you a tutorial that introduces to you the combat and controlling your ship. One thing I enjoyed about the gameplay is that the combat can get intense at times, but this is outside the one-on-one battles. It would have been great to have this feeling in those battles, but the AI seems really forgiving and the one-on-one battles become very simple. However, when you start to get into the larger battles with a few of the bigger ships the gameplay really comes to life, and makes these simple one-on-one battles a passing memory. When it comes to the battles you will need to make sure you use your weapons wisely at first because they come with a cool down, and until you upgrade your ship the cool down can take sometime. I would just like to add that bringing in these larger battles make this a game rather than a VR experience, because in my opinion with the simple nature of the one-on-one battles that is what it would have felt like.
