Description: Hoops VR is specially designed for the HTC Vive so you can live out the ultimate basketball free-throw challenge. Use the motion controls and shoot hoops as naturally as you would out on the court in a real basketball game. Compete online for the top of the global leaderboards as well as locally against your friends. There are a handful of different modes covering a range of difficulties making Hoops VR fun whether you’re a noob or total baller!

Review: If you look at Hoops VR in its own merits you might think it is an OK VR simulation of a basketball throwing simulator and it does what it needs to do. But sadly for Hoops VR I have played many other basketball type games and they are all better than this one. The throwing physics don’t seem to be much cop and at times it feels like you are throwing a ping-pong ball rather than a basketball.

Maybe you have tried all the other basketball VR sims and are not looking for something different, then try this. Just don’t expect it to be better than anything, but do expect a little bit of fun for a little price. As long as you are aware there is better out there you should be OK. Just remember to try those others first before purchasing this one.
