Phantom: Covert Ops had a decent launch with nDreams revealing the title achieved over $1m in gross revenue during the first month on sale. It takes a unique approach to the stealth FPS genre by taking place completely on water, where players have to infiltrate a secret military installation by silently paddling through the waterways on a kayak.
When reviewing the videogame VRFocus commented: “Phantom: Covert Ops offers a decent slice of immersive VR gaming that will be well suited to most gamers.” Going onto say the videogame: “is entertaining and there’s enough to keep you invested for a good few hours. Hopefully, nDreams will build upon this concept rather than letting it sink into the depths.”
