VR Karts is a fun and family-friendly Virtual Reality racing game designed specifically for Oculus Rift. Let’s Race!
Review: Sprint is a kart racing game done in a cartoon style very similar to Diddy Kong Racing more than Mario Kart, but that isn’t such a bad thing. There is a cross between the real and the cartoon and while everything feels good, plays good and looks amazing there is just something missing that we couldn’t quite put our fingers on. Maybe we just wanted it to be like Mario Kart a little too much.
Verdict: While it has to be said that it is not quite as much fun as the Mario Karts of this videogame world the VR element does make it a great game to play. There are some good times to be had with VR Karts, from bumping into your own weapons to power sliding into a tree and a beehive falling on your head. But it just seems to move a little slow and doesn’t quite feel as much fun as it should. Still, it is a fun game and well worth downloading.
