If you own a VR headset and are a fan of speed and racing, this futuristic game show is a blast. While the controls take some getting used to and might make players feel a little nauseated, Sprint Vector is well worth the $30 price. In terms of content, there are a dozen race tracks to tackle, each one full of obstacles, shortcuts, weapons, and power-ups. Just like other arcade racers like the Mario Kart games, you'll do what it takes to win the race, so you'll need to use the nitro boosts and power-ups on the track as necessary (but try not to look behind you to see if you did any damage, as you may lose your footing!). On top of that, there are nine challenge courses that put your sprinting prowess to the test. You simulate running by moving your arms quickly beside you to gain speed and take on the specific challenges across these courses. It's truly a blast to fly, aim, and shoot with your glove, climb walls, and dodge obstacles -- all at the same time. It's crazy fun, and your arms may get tired after a while.

Multiplayer is fun and frenetic, with only the odd noticeable slowdown when there was a lot of action on the screen at the same time. This mode's biggest issue is that there aren't many gamers playing it close to its launch, so full multiplayer matches aren't easy to get into. The graphics are fun, including the colorful environments, special effects, and look of each of the eight different contestants you can assume the role of (each with multiple skins to choose from), plus the upbeat and catchy soundtrack is also worth noting. Sprint Vector is a refreshingly fun and super fast-paced VR game you should try out if you own a PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, or Oculus Rift. It's not an easy game to master, but you'll impress yourself with how good you'll get if you stick with it.
