Review: ‘VR Basketball Hoops’ is pretty much what you are probably expecting it to be. It’s a hoop scoring game in which you get to pick one of 5 locations (Classic basketball court, space, Beach, Pyramid and a Night Club) and you can play 3 kinds of modes on each of them: Arcade (classic score hoops until you are board, but the basket keeps teleporting about the arena after each shot), Timeline (a set amount of time to score as many as you can) and moving which of course sees the basket hoop constantly moving back and forth. . There is nothing much wrong with this game and nothing right with it as well. Yes, it looks OK and has some fun environment, but it’s too hard, it’s full of bugs and there are far better basketball games out there most of which are for free. It’s worth a look for something silly to play for 5 minutes I suppose, but you just about get what you pay for here which is not a lot.
