Description: Manny Pacquiao is the only eight-division world champion in the history of boxing and has won twelve major world titles. Enjoy boxing with world-renowned boxing star, Manny Pacquiao! Realistic physics, immersive sound, and fluid animation make you feel like you’re really in the Boxing ring.

Review: ‘Manny Boxing VR’ is supposed to be a fully endorsed boxing game with Manny Pacquiao. There are in fact 5 fighters to choose from which are Jess, Luke, Logan, Dean and Manny. Apart from Manny Pacquiao, all the others are made up names (as far as I know). You don’t get to fight as Manny, only box him and that is where this game falls apart at the seams.

There is no skill, strategy or effort needed to beat all the plays (Manny included) and I defeated them all in my first playthrough. In fact, it took me less than 30 minutes to finish the whole game. Sure, it has 3 game modes: Training, quick match and online multi-match mode, but unless you get a friend to waste their money as well you won’t find anyone else online. This game is not worth the £11.39 asking price and there are far better boxing games out there like Creed: Rise to Glory or Knockout League that are worthy of your money.
