Review: VR Cricket might be very basic in looks and gameplay, but it does try to bring a much fuller game of cricket than any other VR cricket game has. While you will mostly be batting, you can also do your own runs by running on the spot. The camera goes to a side view for this scene. Don’t get me wrong, this is still a terrible game and not worth the current £3.99 asking price, but its a little bit braver than other VR cricket apps. If you see this in a sale, maybe give it a look, but see it as more of a note of interest than the gameplay or the game itself.
