Review: ‘Velocity Vector’ is a podracer game in which you use pully strings to control your vehicle much like the reins of a horse. Let’s deal with the biggest issues first. It will take you a LONG time to get used to the controls, I am talking 30mins plus a least and that is with doing the tutorial, but to get good at the game you are probably looking at hours. Then there is the extreme nausea which will make even the hardest of VR legs crumble as well as the truly terrible in-game music. And for the last niggle I have to moan at the price given the content amount and the quality of that said content. There is simply nothing here to justify the price and nothing to make me want to recommend it (at the moment). I do think it has some potential, but it needs work before that is realised.
