Sparc, the first 'vsport' game from developer CCP Games is one of the best virtual reality games on the market but hardly anyone is playing it.

If any virtual reality title would convince people to dive into the technology or take it seriously as an eSport, Sparc is that title. It's simple playground fun with none of the bullying or awkward relationships. Needless to say, CCP Games' creation works and works well. Everything is as smooth as can be for a game that has competitive gaming dreams. Let's just hope that more arenas, items, and modes are added to keep the casual fan base around and even more complexity is inserted for the comp squads. Also, you know...if you like throwing a ball down a hallway, then this PSVR title will make you enjoy it like you were a kid again.

Sparc combines the futuristic sport of Tron's disc battles with handball to create a unique PSVR experience that will have you moving and throwing with the greatest of ease. As a spectator V-sport, the focus on competitive online multiplayer makes up for the sparse amount of single player content

Whilst there are plenty of multiplayer titles on Playstation VR at the moment, none of them capture the vibe of competitive sport quite like Sparc does. The focus on quick-paced one on one action makes for some virtual reality showdowns that aren’t only incredibly tense but also a hell of a lot of fun too. There isn’t a whole lot on offer outside of the online multiplayer options, though it’s understandable seeing as Sparc is at its very best when played with other players. Still, it does mean it’s going to live or die by its community, so hopefully there’ll be plenty of people playing Sparc for a long time. I don’t see why there won’t be though – it’s bloody great.

Sparc has the potential to grow, but it needs all the help it can get from as many installbases it can get its hands on.

Sparc is what would happen if racquetball existed in the world of TRON. With extensive customization, a handful of modes, and frantic well-executed gameplay, the only thing holding this game back is CCP's recent push away from the VR table. This is doubly unfortunate as what's here is a fantastic platform on which to build.

My initial impression of Sparc had me raving about how it was the best game I've ever played in VR. I've since come down from that initial high, and while I do have some concerns about the amount of content, it remains one of the best experiences I've had on PlayStation VR. It's absolutely enthralling, and while you may look like a tremendous dork while playing it (I've seen footage of me playing and it's not a pretty sight), you feel like the coolest person in the world as you're barely managing to dodge balls at the last second.

I've always enjoyed standing up and using the moves whenever possible with PSVR, but very few game offer the tracking and responsiveness necessary for a fully immersive experience.

Sparc is the classic VR game with brilliant ideas and a physical activity required by the player above the average. However, the contents are few.

Sparc is limited in terms of features and tangible incentives to keep playing, but the core sport is fun
