Main Game Features
- Customizable weapons
- Satisfying light-gun style shooting gameplay
- Over 15 exciting action missions
In Blood & Truth, you play as Roman Marks, a skilled soldier and one of the siblings in the Marks crime family. The game kicks off with the death of the father of the Marks family, putting them in a precarious situation with other gangs around London. As various local factions start to put pressure on your operations, it's up to you to salvage your family legacy and fight back with violent force. You'll adventure through a variety of locations, spraying your opponents with lead and fighting to regain your hold on the city. You'll blast your way through gang hideouts, vandalize an art gallery, and engage in your fair share of car chases. While the plot itself is thoroughly predictable and even boring at times, it's still a great foundation for some wildly entertaining and fun gameplay sequences.
At its core, Blood & Truth feels like a cross between a James Bond flick and a classic arcade light-gun game like Area 51 or Time Crisis. Movement is simple and linear, as players can teleport between various vantage points as they progress through levels. Usually, you'll have to kill everyone in your path, utilizing your handy pistol and a variety of other standard firearms. In true spy-movie fashion, you'll occasionally have to solve some puzzles by hacking doors, disabling alarm systems, and cracking safes. This keeps the experience from being too fast-paced, giving you a few moments to stop and catch your breath. With the exception of some slow, story-based segments, you should expect a non-stop thrill ride of fun moments.
Blood & Truth is at its best when you're quickly moving from spot to spot, mowing down opposition with speed and precision. There are a lot of fun and quirky interactive elements in the levels that keep immersion high, resulting in a handful of truly unique and innovative moments. In one section, you'll engage in a shootout while perched in a DJ booth, allowing you to mess with the records and pyrotechnics. In another section, you'll use a scoped weapon to pick off enemies from afar. There's a great variety of moments that keep Blood & Truth from feeling like an endless barrage of nameless enemies.
Although the game has a few flaws, namely in the storytelling department, Blood & Truth stays consistently entertaining thanks to its undeniably addictive gameplay. Taking cover and gunning through bad guys never stops being fun, especially when you throw new weapons and gadgets into the mix. While it's far from a masterpiece, Blood & Truth has some charming moments combined with satisfying gameplay, making it a winner for any VR fan.
If you're looking to relieve some stress or jump into the leading role in the newest big-budget action flick, try Blood & Truth. Simply put, this is one of the most exciting and adrenaline-pumping VR shooters out there.
