A Parkour platformer as a VR game
Deep End allows you to jump over, jump on, and climb on different buildings and in different rooms in a virtual world. It is a VR game set in bland office buildings and in what look like building ruins.View full description
- The rooms were obviously designed to make Parkour interesting
- You can play with zero latency jumping
- The locations become boring after you have reached every ledge
- It doesn't have very nice graphics
Deep End allows you to jump over, jump on, and climb on different buildings and in different rooms in a virtual world. It is a VR game set in bland office buildings and in what look like building ruins.
Exploration is the aim of the game
Deep End doesn't really have a goal, but that is because it is Parkour simulator, and typically a Parkour enthusiast doesn't have a point to his or her actions other than to feel an athletic thrill. You do not feel an athletic thrill when you play this game because you are just stood in an empty room, but it does show you the sort of things a Parkour enthusiast may see when engaging in the sport. The graphics are pretty poor, but they are better than Climbey, although Climbey does have a better control system. The graphics look similar to the early Tomb Raider games on PS1.
A nice diversion for new Parkour hobbyists
If you are looking to try out your VR headset, then Deep End may give you a passable experience. However, if you are looking for something that will last a little longer than a few hours, then this is not the game for you. Only new Parkour hobbyists are going to be interested in playing this game for more than a day because only they are able to understand how difficult it is to pull off Parkour moves in real life. If you do decide to get the game, then try to get it when it is cheap or when it is on a high discount because there is not much for people do to who are not Parkour enthusiasts in the same way that it wouldn’t suit non-anglers if it were an angling game.
