Review: There are many great boxing games for our PCVR headsets 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 VR boxing game for me it offers more than enough good quality gameplay and physical action to make it worth a download. It’s not a knockout, but it will win on points if I was the judge, especially for the small £6.99 price tag.
