Description: Aussie Sports VR 2016 invites you into Australia’s sporting community to meet the players, see the fans, feel the passion and be a spectator at major events of 2016. Explore Australia’s favourite sports and play mini-games: AFL, Basketball, Cricket, Football and Rugby.
Sport is a universal language and plays a unique role in shaping and showcasing Australia’s identity, values and culture. Australia has a remarkable international sporting pedigree and is internationally recognised as a consistent, high-performing sporting nation. Australia is also a leader in developing grassroots sport and elite pathways that include women, girls and people with disability.
Review: I’m not quite sure what ‘Aussie Sports VR 2016’ is supposed to be. First of all, what is with the “2016” when the game was made and indeed released in 2019? There is no explanation about the interesting history or complex rules of AFL, just some 360 videos and some of the crappiest mini-games you will ever play. At least it is free I suppose, so it is worth a download just to play the mini-games if you are board. But personally I really don’t think it is worth anyone’s time unless for some reason you love Aussie sports in that particular year!
