Give yourself the most enjoyable workout

C-Smash VRS fuses the best of racket sports - squash, tennis, racket, paddle ball and beyond - into a cosmic physical experience. The soundtrack delivers original tracks from DJ Ken Ishii (Rez Infinite) and Danalogue (The Comet is Coming, Soccer 96).

I've been on a bit of a health kick recently, losing a lot of weight and trying to get a little fitter. C-Smash VRS is a fun, challenging experience, with the added benefit that, if you play it correctly, results in an effortless cardiovascular workout.

There are a number of modes to ensure you never get bored, although the single player content is a little limited at launch. Playing against real opponents is where the meat of the game is, not to mention where you'll have the most fun:

Head to Head: Plays like single player mode, however you have blocks behind you, which you must defend from your opponent, whilst trying to hit the other player's blocks.

There are several two player modes including Head to Head

Firewall: In the middle of the court there are a number of blocks and if you hit them they turn to your colour. The more blocks you convert to your colour the more points you score.

Bodyshot: Here there are two balls in play and the aim is to hit your opponent.

Quickshot: This mode is the most challenging. There's one block on the court and the first player to hit it earns points.

Playing online with random strangers is a little problematic in as much as trying to find a game can be a little tricky. This is mainly because you have to chose which mode you want to play rather than joining a mode at random. There are more modes coming in the future (including a co-op mode), so this is really one that looks set to get better in time.

This is yet another example of a game that I wouldn't be even remotely interested in if it were a standard, pancake release. However, in VR this is an essential purchase.
