Description: Nock is the first real multiplayer sport for VR. Compete in aerial archery soccer matches from anywhere in the world! It’s a brand new game that requires coordination, agility, and strategy. Skate and zip around the pitch while using a bow and arrow to blast the ball into the other team’s goal. With intuitive controls and realistic physics, Nock is easy to learn but difficult to master.

Review: ‘Nock’ is an action/sports style game that combines archery and football to make for a pretty chaotic game that can also be quite exciting. In short, you need to get the ball into the goal any way you can. There is a tutorial at the start to get used to things, but if I am honest I found the controls came quite naturally given I have played countless archery games before. Graphics wise there isn’t a whole lot to talk about, but it looks as good as it needs to most of the time.

It is multiplayer that is the most frustrating element of this game. There are times when no-one was playing and if you connect to a US server from here in the UK it was janky to say the least, almost to the point that it was unplayable. I like the game I really do, but it needs a much bigger community and a lot more content before it becomes something truly worth owning.
