Decent Chess game for VR
Posted: 3 months ago
Verified purchase
Plays well, Like Chess but in VR. But 2 things I noticed: -Going to need a fairly powerful GPU to run it. I'm not exactly sure why. But I tested on 2 builds (rtx2060 and 5500XT) the 5500xt struggled a bit. Using a Quest 2 - The cursor tracking with the headset is a bit odd. It kind of dates it. Not something you see in modern VR games. Overall worth it when on sale. I think I got it for about $3 in a bundle.
