Description: You can start off by competing in the relatively easy FA Cup to hone your goalkeeping skills and improve your hand reflexes. Or if you’re confident enough you can dive straight into the more challenging tournaments like the Champions League or World Cup! You can play for the club that you’ve always supported! Or perhaps don the goalkeeping jersey of your national team and achieve your boyhood dream of bringing home the World Cup!
Review: Sadly, us VR fans are getting desperate for a good football (soccer) game and while I was hoping Goalkeeper Legend was it, it’s sadly not. There is simply nothing with this game that makes it enjoyable (other than the silly goal dances and giant goalie hand) from its bad controls to pointless “speed-up” match play. The good news is there is hope for this game, especially when it comes to playing it on the Rift or Vive as the goalie hands might well work. But this is the Oculus Go and this game somehow feels strangled because of its limitations. Not even the four cups and leagues make this game a justifiable purchase, but it’s not so much the developer’s fault, it’s more the limitations of the Oculus Go system.
