VRFC Virtual Reality Football Club
Developer: Cherry Pop Games
VRFC takes 8 football ready enthusiasts running, kicking and sliding into the world’s first FPF (First person football game). Take to the turf in VRFC, the world's only first-person VR football game. Whether you struggle to hit a cow's backside with a banjo, or your idea of dribbling is something babies do, none of that matters - now you can become a footballing legend in your own living room.
Learn the basics of the game - running, dribbling, shooting, not falling over - then head out onto the pitch to show your new team mates your skills. But it's not all about how dazzling you'll become - play as a team and you'll soon be winning matches as well as admiring glances. They might even forgive you for missing that sitter from 2 yards out.
Play in competitive online 8-player matches with global leaderboards, or invite your friends into a private match for a little friendly competition. Master the training activities offline and with fully customisable game settings you can tailor your agile VR experience to suit you.
A wealth of VR comfort options will ease you into the game, and as you run around the pitch you'll be burning the calories without even realising it. Make new football friends, play like a real team, and score the occasional absolute worldy. You'll never want to play on a real pitch again.

VRFC is not a good representation of football, but that doesn't mean it's bad. Like the table-top variety, it doesn't need to be accurate to be entertaining, and once you embrace the insanity there's fun to be had. VRFC is flawed and disconnected, but also spontaneous, amusing, challenging, and fun. At this budget price, we can think of worse ways to spend a weekend.
Overall the idea is really good – a fitness game based around football which has the physics of Rocket League… But it’s just not executed that well. A lot more needs to be put in the game as a whole before I can honestly say that it’s worth picking up. For £14.99, this is a game that’s definitely not worth your money. I think if there were patches to improve things and more game modes added in, it would be a much better game
You’re not going to get the accurate footballing experience that you might’ve been hoping for with VRFC, but it does embrace the fundamentals of the ‘beautiful game’ in a way that makes for a social, chaotic, and incredibly fun virtual reality experience. Sure, the controls are a bit fiddly and there’s a big dependence on an active online community, but every minute I spent with the game has been incredibly enjoyable – and maybe even a bit sweaty… In all, VRFC is a great addition to PlayStation VR’s multiplayer catalogue and a title that footballing fans will definitely want to check out.
