Battlezone (2016)

A remake of the classic shooter that debuted in 1980 in the arcades. The new version was developed by Rebellion for virtual reality sets. Similarly as its predecessor, the new Battlezone has rather modest story which tells about an invasion of aliens on planet Earth. The player takes control of a modern battle tank and they are tasked with elimination of enemy vehicles, planes and unidentified flying objects. The action is shown from a first-person perspective and during the game the player travels through futuristic locations filled with neon elements that are typical of science-fiction movies of the 80s (like, for example, TRON). The gameplay combines dynamical action with the necessity to carefully plan one's actions.
