Espire 1: VR Operative

Espire 1: VR Operative

Espire 1 is currently my favorite VR stealth game. It was rough at launch but the major issues related to glitchy and inconsistent guard behavior seem to have been ironed out with the first update. There’s already plenty of fun to have in the challenge missions and I’m looking forward to more being added to the game over time.

The performance of this game is very good overall as you would expect from something that was simultaneously developed for the Quest headset. While this means the environments are somewhat bare I prefer the approach because of the higher frame rate. I often see frame drops in other stealth games like Budget Cuts or Unknightly with an RTX 2060 but I can run most of Espire 1’s challenge missions at 144 FPS without a hitch.

It can be fun and there is a freedom in it that is not like other VR stealth games but the glitches and certain factors of the game kinda ruin it.

I am waiting till the updates fix it to play again.

If you don’t have it, follow it on news and pay attention to updates. Or wait for it to be discounted, at least then if you don’t like it you wouldn’t have paid the full price.


Best attempt at a fun stealth game, but so far a little disappointing.

Not saying I didn’t have fun, but certain glitches and game design ruined fun playthroughs.
