Review: Gorn (VR)

Gorn is the best implementation of melee combat in VR to date, by a landslide.

I can’t say that I’ve ever actually cut someone’s head off with a gladius in real life. Nor have I let loose a tight circling flail at the perfect moment to crush a man’s skull – but when you play this game, you’ll feel you’d know just how to do it – it’s that intuitive and real in the “feel” of it all. It took the swarm of positive reviews to get me past my aversion to the cartoony graphics – but now I understand their purpose. It’s to keep me out of therapy…if it looked as real as it felt, I don’t think I could feel good about myself after the things that I have done.

I Went through the first few waves of unarmed opponents with little trouble, even grabbing my opponents and ripping their heads from their still living bodies all to please the crowd of omnipotent floating heads around me quoting Gladiator the whole way through. The night ended with my eyes burning from the profuse sweat i had started producing and I decide even the best gladiators need sleep so i proceeded to get some rest.


I can’t express how much I love this game. It’s the perfect game for someone who wants to feel like an amazing sword fighter/ gladiator without all this futuristic garbage (not saying it’s all bad) of jumping around flying throug the air.

One of my favorite things about this game is the developers, they respond and actually listen to the feedback of the discord channel. I cannot reccommend checking out the channel enough. Now, to describe the game…

Now, obviously it’s not a perfect game, its got its frustrating moments and stuff like that, glitches, bugs, the lot.
But the way the game is right now, it’s constantly changing and is being fixed.
We could honestly use more developers who listen to their fanbase, Foxhole and Gorn are good examples of this kind of great thing.

Another great thing about it is how powerful you feel when you go in slow motion after parrying, chopping your foes to bits like a sadistic sushi chef.
Personally I love cutting the AI to bits and watching them struggle to hit you or get to you.

Overall this has to be one of the best VR games in existence. I have never hated a floating head that doesn’t speak/barely speaks as much as i have in this game but that anger just makes it that much better when i rip the head from their “champions” shoulders then throw the remains at them. If you have any exercise equipment you wont need it anymore.

Can’t recommend this game enough, it is definitely going far.
