Dick Wilde 2 VR
A toxic outbreak has been unleashed, mutating the local wildlife! Pair up with your friends and take on the deadly ooze and its disgusting dwellers. Clear the swamplands with super-powered weapons – from physics-defying beam guns to homemade revolvers. Hold on tight, this ride’s about to get bumpy!
Blast away incoming enemies, lean out of the way of attacks, rinse and repeat. It’s one of the cleaner, more concise takes on the genre. There’s no spinning you around in circles or tying you up in needless plot.
Dick Wilde 2 is incredibly simple: you move down an on-rails track while dodging projectiles, blowing up obstacles, and firing like mad at everything from angry birds to killer rat men. I’m not quite clear on exactly what happened to turn all of these animals both sentient and homicidal, but I’m glad that it did.
A wide range of enemy types and the cartoonish color scheme are some of the game’s highlights. You’ll fire wildly at deadly mollusks, kamikaze moles riding drills straight at your raft, poison-shooting snakes, jellyfish who generate an impervious electrical barrier, projectile-flinging beavers, and even fireball-spitting frogs.
With a solid combo of southern fried humor and fun shooting mechanics, there’s really not much to lose by trying out Dick Wilde 2.
