Description: The Box is a new arcade game of Virtual Reality that will test your reflexes, your coolness and your ability to strategy. An action game that challenges you to keep playing again and again. 6 walls. 100 options per wall. Beware, enemies can come everywhere. No flank is safe, strategy and speed are key to overcome The Box. Compete with your friends in local mode or fight to be the best in the world. The Box is a game inspired by traditional arcade games. The objective is to destroy all the enemies with the help of your pistols and your shields. By combining these 2 elements wisely you will be able to face hundreds of balls that want to kill you. Do not trust them, they explode, they shoot, they throw themselves at you, etc. Survive with the help of extras that will surprise you.

Review: THE BOX VR sees you standing inside a cube (or box) and shooting at balls that come out of the sides of that box and then proceed to bounce all around it until you shot them or the balls hit you. Sadly that is all you will be doing. Shooting and a little bit of dodging. No variety, no change in scenery, just wave after waves of balls and it keeps adding more and more until you die. While it is indeed fun at first and probably worth the £1.69 asking price, the joy of this game soon wears thin. Not a terrible wave shooter I suppose, just not a good one neither.
