Review: There are many great boxing games on the Oculus Quest like Knockout League & Creed: Rise to Glory to name just two of them, but I still found myself enjoying ‘The Thrill of the Fight’ even if it isn’t up to the level of graphics and gameplay those others are. This game has its own style, its own serious boxing simulator feel and it is all the better for it. While it is never going to be the best boxing game on the Quest for me it offers more than enough good quality gameplay and psyical action to make it worth a download. Just remember the low price you are paying and you should be fine. It’s not a knockout, but it will win on points if I was the judge.
