Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Being in the cockpit creates near perfect VR immersion thanks to taking the role of a pilot, which allows the player to be stationary
More so than FPS games, Star Conflict achieves incredible immersion by positioning the player where the pilot is. This puts the player's entire body in the same position as the character, which adds to the feeling of actually being there as opposed to sitting in a chair in the real world while your character is walking around a room.
Pro Includes both PvE and PvP missions, which should cover all multiplayer bases
There are player vs player arenas as well as quests and mission within the world against NPC enemies. This allows you to practice against AI, and once you get good you can progress on and challenge other players.
Pro High quality graphics and aesthetics that details a world that is realisticly believable
Star Conflict has high quality graphics and interesting ship design. There's also good detail in the surrounding world that really makes it look great, especially in VR where you are fully immersed in the world.
Con Multiplayer with friends require two Rifts
It's the early days of VR, and it's rare to find another person that owns a Rift (especially with the Vive gaining popularity lately). Playing MMOs with random other players online can still be fun, but the experience is much better when you have a friend to play it with. It will be hard to find a friend who can play with you, as you will both need a Rift and a capable gaming rig.
Con Quickly turns grindy to encourage spending money
While the game starts out with fast-pasted progress it quickly turns into a typical MMO grind that can be sped up by paying real world money.
Con Plagued with admin abuse
Endless reports of people having unpleasant run-ins with admins.
