Review: hoVRboard is an X-games/snowboarding style of game in which you will need to build up speed in order to do various tricks. At first you start to have fun with it as you are placed in a large grassy open world and told to have a laugh. While obviously nauseating from start to finish there is a real sense of “fun” to be found here. I loved exploring the world and seeing all the different jumps and ramps. It does take a good while to get used to the controls, but give it a little while and you should soon get the hang of it. But with a £9.29 asking price you soon realise that there isn’t a whole lot of content here with only 3 worlds it just doesn’t feel enough to justify that price. If you grab this in a sale you might be happier with your purchase than I was.
