Description: NBA 2KVR Experience gives you the thrill of walking right onto the court, with All-Star Paul George providing guidance and tips. Compete in a series of fun and intuitive virtual reality basketball mini-games with numerous Gatorade boosts available to improve your performance. With NBA 2KVR, it’s now possible to shoot hoops with all the sights and sounds of a professional stage.

Review: NBA fans have been crying out for a fully licenced VR experience for a while now and a lot of their hopes will be pinned on the NBA 2KVR Experience. Hosted by NBA All-Star Paul George (Who?) you get to play a series of fun basketball related mini-games. There are Three-Point Shootout, Skills Challenge, Buzzer Beater to name but a few. Most of them consisting of getting a ball through the hoop.

You can play in various difficulties which on easy means shot seems to go in and the aiming was deadly simple, but with harder settings, it will be more down to your own aiming ability. There is also some heavy Gatorade advertising consisting of energy and stamina boosts as well as a nice range of other powerups all designed to make your life a little easier. This is a game designed to be fast, fun and loud and that is what it delivers.

Overall this is the same game as the Oculus version and I really do enjoy playing it. But the lack of Playstation move controller option is a crying shame. Maybe it was down to the lower tracking ability of them, but whatever the reason they are sorely missed in this game. Also, the price being a little more expensive is not a welcome sight, but with a short discount sale price, this will be well worth picking up. I can only hope that a Move controller update will be coming sooner rather than later.
