Boom Boxing (Gear VR)
Intro: Boom Boxing VR is the FIRST knockout boxing experience on the Oculus GearVR. Boom Boxing VR will take you directly on the boxing arena and let you fight 1st person perspective in a virtual reality environment.
Verdict: Let’s start first with what I like about Boom Boxing. Visually this game is a good left hook. It’s not a knockout blow but both the boxer and the ring look pretty realistic. Even the sound effects and music are more than adequate. Sadly it is the most important thing that lets this game down, its gameplay (or lack of it). It’s simply a button mashing game with no skill, strategy or gameplay depth at all. Sadly this is not the worse part of this game. The end winning celebrations or knockout celebrations are some of the most nauseating experiences I have ever had on the Gear VR!
While those are some big niggles this game is less than a quid (£1) at the end of the day and that means you really shouldn’t expect much from it. Sadly the odds of getting a good boxing game on the Gear VR are severely limited by the tech it has at its disposal. If you really are desperate for a bit of boxing action do give it a go, it looks pretty good at least! Just be prepared to feel like you have been knocked out yourself once the end animations start.
