The Game Gatling Gears Looks Great in Stereo 3D Mode with 3D Vision

September 8th, 2011 · 7 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


While checking out some of the latest games I’ve found out about an interesting top-down shooter that has turned out to be a real gem for playing in stereoscopic 3D mode with 3D Vision. The game I’m talking about is called Gatling Gears, developed by Vanguard Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, and besides working well in stereo 3D mode it is also fun to play if you like this type of games. It renders almost flawlessly in stereoscopic 3D mode right out of the box, although there is no official 3D Vision profile for the game available yet, all you need to do is do some convergence adjustment and then you can play with very high depth levels for a really nice experience. Everything renders well in stereoscopic 3D mode, even the in-game crosshair is rendered in 3D, although the cursor in the game menu is in 2D that is only present at the menu, so it shouldn’t bother you. The only thing that is rendered in 2D are some HUD elements, but these are not a problem considering that the game needs to be optimized for more depth and just some objects sticking out for best experience (but you can play with convergence to make it suit your preferences best). The game is a fine example what you can achieve by making things properly, even though you haven’t planned the game specifically for stereo 3D gaming it turns out to be almost perfect. So I would recommend you to definitely try Gatling Gears in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision.

    Yep,great game !
    Just put depth at 50-100% and turn up the convergence…!

    That’s just what you want from games…
    I like it,because you don’t see alot of thsese games anymore..
    And the 3d makes it worth playing….

    To give an example everyone has different taste..I find COD boring,and the Witcher,but lot’s of people love it !

    Cheap simple games are sometimes refreshing…,little tired of those 59 Euro expensive games that I only play for 10 hours..

    I agree. The 3D is perfect, but it’s boring as hell. At least the first 3 levels were all the same so far, so I didn’t play more.

    I tried this out last night. The particles look great but it seems like some of the missiles render at the wrong depth
