Lone Echo

Overview

Reviews

Lone Echo strikes an exciting balance between exploration and puzzles that make space seem like a playground for the player. It really nails the relationship between the two main characters and does a great job of telling an interesting, if a bit predictable, story thanks to a unique conversation mechanic and great voice acting.

Lone Echo and Echo Arena are the rare games that demonstrate the true value of VR and hand tracking. Its sense of movement feels great, and it couldn’t exist in any other way. Lone Echo’s well-acted story and interesting environments move at a slow enough pace that you can soak it all in and appreciate the sensation of virtual weightlessness before jumping into the fast, sweaty, competitive action of Echo Arena. The fact that you can experience the multiplayer without even buying it means it’s one of the first things any Oculus Rift owner should download.

This is usually the point where I would tell you that Lone Echo is reason enough to purchase an Oculus Rift and Touch combo; especially now that the price has dropped to $400, but nobody is going to spend that much for a single game – even one as mind-blowing as this. But if you do have a Rift/Touch then Lone Echo is an absolute must for your VR library.

Für mich ist Lone Echo ein klarer Wendepunkt in der noch jungen Geschichte der Virtual Reality. Ich spiele nicht nur einen Roboter im All, ich bin tatsächlich Jack, die Echo-One-Einheit auf der Raumstation Kronos II. Ich fühle mich direkt von Captain...

Lone Echo ist ein zweischneidiges Schwert. Auf der einen Seite haben wir die grandiose Atmosphäre, eine smarte Nutzung der Occulus Rift Touch-Controller und eine wirklich neue, stimmige Art der Fortbewegung. Auf der anderen Seite kann das eigentliche...
