VR Submarine Review

Experience a fun and interactive virtual reality submarine simulation! Designed for children, but adults can play too.

Command a WW2 submarine in roomscale VR and raid enemy convoys. Use the periscope to search for targets, fire torpedoes from the weapons room and shoot deck guns on enemy ships.

IronWolf VR is easy to pick up and play, but hard to master. Getting away from pursuit ships takes time, and so do repairs to your submarine’s hull.

Gameplay

Immerse yourself in a thrilling VR submarine simulation experience! Play in singleplayer or online co-op as you navigate your submarine around the ocean. Search for enemy ships using your periscope, hunt them down with anti-aircraft guns, and unleash torpedoes from below the sea waves.

The game is set in the cramped confines of a WW2 era submarine, complete with old timey dials and switches that you must turn and manipulate with your actual hands. Sometimes this is done in a frenzy as planes search for you overhead, and at other times with cold calculation as you line up a target through the periscope.

There is a huge amount to do inside your submarine, from managing the speed and engines in the engine room to loading torpedoes in the weapons room. You will also need to deal with various malfunctions, from leaks to electrical problems. Of course, you can always fire the deck gun which is very satisfying to shoot and whose report is truly ear-pleasing. It’s not all plain sailing, though; leaks are a frequent problem that require you to weld them yourself, a task which can take quite some time.

Graphics

Stunning high-definition graphics give players an immersive view of the underwater world. The sound effects are also impressive. Among the most notable are the sounds of the submarine surfacing and diving, the pings and clanks of submarine sonar, and the sound of a torpedo being launched.

The experience allows visitors to explore the entire Toti submarine through photographic spherical images and real sound effects. In addition, a voice provides information about each room and the technological equipment on board as well as recounting anecdotes and stories from life onboard the submarine.

The presence-ratings obtained on the Witmer and Singer visual aspects scale were largely unaffected by the audio-related variables, suggesting that the underlying mechanisms are not strongly VR Submarine influenced by differences in the step reproduction or soundscape. In contrast, a significant correlation was found between the Witmer and Singer Sense of Loss Tracking and Time Estimation (p 0.01), indicating that the longer a person spends in VR, the more likely they are to lose track of time. This finding suggests that there are other factors influencing the sense of loss tracking in VR.

Sound

The controls in VR Submarine are very well-designed and make you feel like you’re actually inside a submarine. You can adjust your speed and direction with the joystick, and the game has a number of different routes that you can take to reach the lighthouse at the end.

The sound design in this game is also very good, from the roar of your diesel engine to the splashes of depth charges as they hit the water. It makes the experience truly immersive and even scary at times.

The game’s multi-user VR mode is a great way to simulate a real submarine control room, and it even allows an instructor to join the trainees in the virtual space to help them practice and improve their skills. This helps increase training program scalability and flexibility by catering to different skill levels and learning paces.

Controls

With the addition of Virtual Reality it feels much more immersive, and the experience of exploring a fully fleshed out world that is so huge in its scope while swimming deep down into the Kelp Forest or seeing one of the behemoths explode above you as you watch from your escape pod is utterly enchanting. Even without mods Subnautica VR runs really well in PCVR, with a great framerate and very few issues.

Each room in your cramped submarine is VR UFO Machine rendered very beautifully in VR with an excellent level of detail. Moving from one to the other involves turning a wheel on a door or hatch before being instantly teleported into the next room.

It’s easy to get engrossed in this fantastically entertaining simulation, and the game is very satisfying to play as well as being very difficult. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good time. Whether you are an underwater survival fan or just a fan of claustrophobic space games in general, this game is worth checking out.

Overall

Whether playing alone or in online co-op, VR Submarine is an engrossing and satisfying experience that fully immerses you in convoy raiding as a World War 2 submarine. The tutorial could be expanded a bit to cover some important things, like how to weld leaks in your submarine’s hull, but the overall game is still easy to pick up and play.

The developers have promised a lot of small side activities and mini-games that will give players the chance to take a break from the claustrophobic confines of their submarine. They’ve also added a radio that lets players listen to relaxing music, which is a nice touch.

Polish studio Titan Gamez has announced that its UBOAT: Silent Wolf will launch “soon” for Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest Pro and PC VR headsets via SteamVR. The submarine simulator will offer a single player story campaign and co-op mode for up to three crew members.
