The campaign is actually not bad and it is enough to get players ready for the Challenge mode. The storey is reasonably good too.
For those with VR hardware this game needs a gamepad to go with the headset.
This game needs a fairly powerful video card with 2048MB VRAM. It also needs at least 4 cores and 4GB of memory. The game looks especially good on ultra-wide 21:9 panels.
