What We Like
  • Immersive graphics.

  • Creative use of hand tracking controls.

  • Ideal for new VR gamers.

What We Don't Like
  • Very short experience.

Elixir is like a tutorial for first-time VR games, but it's a half-hour of fun for anyone who wants to dabble in some wizardry. The game relies heavily on hand tracking, so make sure you play with the motion controllers.
