Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) characters as well as Avengers, I have some awesome news for you. The newest virtual reality experience, Avengers: Damage Control has just hit the Malaysian shore and is now available at The VOID in Resorts World Genting.
Being a Marvel fan for a decade myself, or rather, a fan of Iron Man, here’s sharing my honest review on the Avengers: Damage Control virtual reality experience in The VOID at Resorts World Genting.
So far, The VOID has done Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, Wreck-It Ralph: Ralph Breaks VR, Ghostbusters: Dimension, Nicodemus: Demon of Evanishment, and now Avengers: Damage Control.
Avengers: Damage Control takes the longest game time among other titles in The VOID. It’s about 40 minutes and I can honestly say it’s my most immersive VR experience so far.
The VR experience needs two to four players and it began when you and your team are ushered into a room with projector-like screen where Shuri , The Princess of Wakanda in Black Panther movie appears and give you your mission.
One thing that impresses me is that the message from Shuri was played exactly like the scene from Black Panther or The Avengers films. I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you but there is the Marvel Studios humour that we all love in the beginning of the game. It’s really nostalgic in some ways and makes me feel as if I’m really in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is really being recruited to be an Avenger.
After receiving the mission, you will be strapped in to the wireless backpacks vest that are responsible for tracking all of your movement as you walk from room to room. You will be also provided with extra-sensory Oculus headsets.
Once you’re all suited up in your ERS “Emergency Response Suit”, which is a hybrid of Iron Man and Black Panther’s suits, you’ll be taken to a room for some target practice. Now, if you are a first timer in all these, you’ll feel as a little weird wearing the weighted backpack and vest, but don’t worry. You’ll get used to it in a jiffy.
Basically, once you’re in the dimension and the mission is ongoing, the suit actually lets you shoot laser beams from your open hand.(Think Iron Man style). It’s really a cool experience, I must say. You can also use your palm as shield and absorb attacks.
The VOID- Avengers Damage Control is a totally a sensory experience. You can actually feel the heat when there are explosions were nearby or when you get shot. You can also feel the cold blast of wind effect when there are aircrafts flying around.
The mission is to join hands with other Avengers characters in the game to defeat the big boss and at the end of the experience, players will be given a score where you will be assessed based on the following factors: Number of Kills, Accuracy, Friendly Fire, and Energy Absorbed. Not sure how the scoring works, though. My score was really lousy and I’m really ashamed to share it with you. My teammates on the other hand, scored A. Even my son scored A while me…I kinda flunk. I guess I make a bad Avenger after all.
One for the album. I’m not a first timer with The VOID, but I walked away really impressed with this latest title.
So, The VOID- Avengers Damage Control a yay or nay? It’s a yay, definitely. I think this experience is worth your time and if you are a fan of MCU or Avengers movies, you’ll want to experience this.
The VOID is located at Level 1, First World Plaza in Resorts World Genting.
