Description: A Virtual Reality Cricket Game for the HTC Vive that emerges you right in the heart of the cricketing action. You find yourself in the middle facing a variety of bowlers from fast-paced seam to off-spin and leg-spin as you try to hit a record score and join the Honours Board. Play against friends in this immersive environment taking it in turns to outdo each other’s scores.

Review: Despite it having a lot of positive reviews in the Steam store I felt ‘Balls! Virtual Reality Cricket’ wasn’t the best cricket game in VR. While it looks nice the bowing gameplay doesn’t feel good at all. For a start, it is too fast and too hard to see the ball and then there is the unsatisfying batting, it just feels empty and unresponsive. For me, Cricket Club is still the best VR cricket game and this game needs to go a long way before it is anywhere near good enough to beat that. Then there is the £6.99 asking price just to put the final nail in this games coffin.
