Description: You start the game by choosing between 4 characters – each with their own set of upgrades – and plunging straight into the action-packed HOVR world. The game has 3 objectives: Reach the finish line, outrun other hackers (bots) and achieve a high score. You’re also racing against the clock, so beware that going over time brings down your overall!

Review: HOVR is a fun game to play with some pretty decent visuals to go with it. With some great powerups, music & sound effects and even a good little selection of characters and powerups, it would be hard not to have fun playing it. Sadly it does suffer the same problem as 90% of all VR games and that is its lack of use of VR. There really isn’t any reason for this to be in VR and while it does look OK, it doesn’t utilise it in any way. That doesn’t make this a bad game, far from it. It just means it is not much of a VR game.
