Magic Table Chess for the Oculus Rift

Today we are reviewing Magic Table Chess for the Oculus Rift.

I really wanted to love this game, I was expecting to be able to reach out and grab pieces, move them, get angry and wipe the table. Then start a fist fight with the robot sitting across from me.  But alas, that was not the case.  There are no motion controllers in this game?

What puzzles me is that in Dungeon Chess, you can use the controller in the Gear VR, but in a game made by the same company, almost identical in every way it has no motion controller for the Oculus Rift?

Like I said I really wanted to love this game, the two environments are great, the sounds are nice, but it’s pretty much unplayable without a controller option.

I give it 2 Stars right now and hope that an update will come soon.

You’ll note that there is no exercise benefit to this game, but I do love Chess and the mind is a muscle sooooo, yeah, I included it. 🙂
