Choplifter HD, a Game You Should Try in Stereo 3D with 3D Vision

January 22nd, 2012 · 2 Comments · Stereo 3D Games

I’ve just found a new and interesting game that works really well in stereo 3D mode using 3D Vision. The game is called Choplifter HD an in it you take the role of a rescue pilot asked to join the elite, international helicopter rescue team and in it you will be flying a helicopter doing a bunch of different stuff in more than 30 missions. The game combines things from reality with fantasy elements, and your missions will range from the extraction of captured military prisoners, to saving survivors of viral outbreaks. You will have to bank, hover, touch-down and sometimes even shake zombies from your chopper during lift-off in order to make the rescue and complete your mission. Oh, and there is a lot of shooting you have to do from your chopper, but even more enemies are going to be shooting at you…

Choplifter HD is based on Unreal engine and probably a fairly new version was used, because the game works really well in stereo 3D mode, although there is not yet an official profile for 3D Vision available in the latest drivers. Even without a profile the game looks quite nice in stereo 3D and you can easily crank up the depth level, but the real fun starts when you play a bit with the convergence as the game will look even better in stereoscopic 3D mode. The good thing is that the HUD is rendered in 2D and there aren’t any issues with lights, shadows or any pretty much any of the effects in the game, so you can have some fun playing this game in stereo 3D mode without any issues. You can pick up the game off Steam for $14.99 USD in US or for 9.99 Euro in Europe, but unfortunately there is no demo you can download and try before buying it.

    nice game. may I suggest AA compatibility flag “0x00000045” and Ambient Occlusion compatibility flag “0x00000024”. looks nicer, haven’t seen it in 3d though…
