    There’s very little to dislike in Sprint Vector. Sure there will be times when that competitive edge over takes you, getting annoyed when you fudge a jump but that’s to be expected. The single-player has enough to get you started with a few hours of gameplay, yet it’s the multiplayer that’ll have you coming back for more. Here’s hoping that Sprint Vector draws in enough of a crowd to sustain it, rather than becoming another multiplayer focused experience that gets forgotten about. Which would be a shame, because from where VRFocus is standing Sprint Vector is another hit for the studio.

    There is very little to find at fault within Sprint Vector. It is a highly polished offering from the get-go.

    Survious has done it again. They have managed to create a unique VR experience that is highly engaging, looks great in the Vive, and is incredibly exhilarating to play. The movement system is brilliantly executed offering a unique VR gaming experience that also doubles as solid workout. Be warned though because your arms will ache if you play long enough. Sprint Vector is a must-have game for any VR gaming enthusiast.

    Sprint Vector is an immensely entertaining VR racing experience that handles movement in a very unique way. If you’re looking for a Mario Kart style VR game, you’ve found it.

    Sprint Vector is a great example of a game that could not exist without VR. The act of swinging your arms from side-to-side as you boost along massive, sprawling levels in contention with other racers is exhilarating. It makes for one of the silliest looking games to watch someone play but one of the most intense (and exhausting) experiences you can have in a headset.

    The Sprint Vector experience serves the VR platform in a couple different ways. It fits into your home as a competitive romp among friends or online and as one of a growing number of virtual reality games that can be worked into a fitness program. It also supplies a combination of competition and match length that fits into VR arcades. Either way you slice it, Sprint Vector is a pretty great value that deserves a spot in the VR ecosystem's upper tier of games.

    Sprint Vector is unlike anything else on the VR market. The Fluid Locomotion System allows for high speed virtual movement without motion sickness for most people, and the game's ubeat, irreverent tone encourages both casual and competitive play. It does seem to be hit or miss, and sadly seems to lack that addictive quality for most people. Meanwhile, my competitive friends and platformer fans can't seem to get enough of it, and it's just physically demanding enough to provide a bit of a workout to boot.

Challenging but fair. Only trouble is, after playing for an hour, I get knackered, and have to play something more sedentary. Guess that isn't really the game's fault. Expand

    You can't compare it to anything else in VR, because there is nothing like it in VR. The best game you can compare it to is probably MarioYou can't compare it to anything else in VR, because there is nothing like it in VR. The best game you can compare it to is probably Mario Kart. All the mechanics are pretty robust, there's a strong multiplayer element, great visuals, and it's fun as sh*t. There's nothing else like slowly gaining on another player, watching them look back in panic, and the intense competitive feeling you get from these interactions. It's one of those things that simply doesn't work in anything but VR, since the degree of immersion brings all these elements to another level.

    I do have a few gripes though. Some parts of the map, say you get thrown off the beaten path by someone's powerup or an explosive barrel, are far too difficult to navigate. There needs to be a button press or combination that teleports you to the center of the track. I find way too often that I get stuck in between some level props that don't have any benefit to the track.

    All in all it's a great experience. I'd say that this is the VR title many people have been waiting for. If a larger, more capable studio was smart enough to create stuff like this then VR would be taking right the f*ck off.
