There was all this excitement over the Playstation 4 VR launch, and
then it kind of slid down a hill. So I was very excited to hear Family
Friendly Gaming was emailed a digital download code for this flying VR
video game. I don't want the millions upon millions of physical copy
gamers to freak out. Eagle Flight does have a physical copy at
retailers. Ubisoft provided for the physical copy movement.
My initial reactions to Eagle Flight were extremely positive. It looks wonderous in VR. I loved looking around this city from the eagle eye position. Did not let me visually zoom in, so not very eagle eye realistic there. That was after sitting through some long loading screens. Paris looks weird in Eagle Flight. Humans left for some reason. I guess the extreme radicals on the far left are excited about that aspect of Eagle Flight. The animals have taken over, and so have trees.
I need to warn the millions of readers of Family Friendly Gaming about something concerning Eagle Flight. This game can give you motion sickness. I had a couple of bouts where I had to take the helmet off and lay down because I was about ready to lose my lunch. Part of that came from having to move so fast to get through all those rings. Then I could no longer listen to the interesting music.
Eagle Flight is sadly very short with only five chapters. What is strange is many of the flying levels felt way too long. Why can't I walk around the ground as an eagle? I wanted to. Eagles can walk and/or hop on the ground. If you want to play multiplayer then you must pay for Playstation Plus. The sensitivity of the head turning controls can be adjusted in Eagle Flight.
The more I played Eagle Flight, the more I felt it was lacking. It is lacking in diversity of what we do in the levels. The controls can not be adjusted to use the controller. There is no local multiplayer. The free roam around the city is one of the best parts of Eagle Flight in my opinion. I learned that my eagle would lose if I ran into anything. Like what? An elephant, tree, wall, ceiling, and more. Eagle Flight has violent content in certain parts.
