I got the Fall Creators Update installed and I’m making my way through the launch library Microsoft has prepared for VR headsets from Acer, Lenovo, Dell, HP and, next month, Samsung.

One of my first stops was Halo Recruit, which is now the definition of a disappointing wave shooter in VR. In Recruit, you shoot targets on a flat screen….in VR.

To be fair, 343 Industries and Microsoft didn’t present Halo Recruit like it would be a fully fledged game. It is meant to be more like a taster for what a Halo game in VR could one day be. Truth be told, though, I have a hard time imagining any Halo fans would find this 5-minute experience worth their time.

Skip through my video below where I captured the entire affair, right down to the out-of-scale Master Chief who appears at the end as I pat him on his little head.
