Review: ‘Urban Basketball VR’ isn’t so much a game, but it gives you all the tools to be able to mess about and make one up yourself. Sure, you can play the basic game of scoring as many hoops in 3 minutes, but this game is more fun when you don’t do those things. You can break things, throw things and generally mess about which is fun for the first 10 minutes, but then you soon realise there isn’t a lot to this game at all. While £3.99 isn’t a lot of money I do wish it was a lot cheaper due to the lack of content. Yes, it can be fun, but there really should have been challenges and side-minigames made around it rather than it all just existing.
