With BoxVR, you’ll find yourself losing weight and becoming much healthier before you even realise. Whether it’s because you intend to burn those calories or show yourself to be a rhythm boxing God, you will be fitter from playing this – which is exactly what it sets out to do. It’s an (upper)cut above the rest of the competition in being a game that is designed to make you exercise but while also being extremely fun in its own right. If you’re anything like me, exercise is one of those words that instantly makes me want to curl up and hide, it sounds like a lot of effort. Well, with this boxercise game, that effort disappears. Yes it’s tiring, yes you will sweat, but who cares when you’re having so much fun doing it?

Seemingly long overdue, PSVR has finally gotten its killer exercise app in BoxVR, a frankly hellacious workout that turns your living room into a gym bootcamp. It doesn't get much more intense, or sweatier, than this.

BoxVR is incredibly unique in that it aims to help its players get in shape and burn calories first and foremost while being a game second. That's not to say that it isn't fun, it's incredibly engaging and the huge assortment of excellently-paced routines offer enough variety to make it worth coming back to on a regular basis. This game sets a very high bar for VR fitness, and it has found its way into my daily routine.

Even though its quite simplistic, I really enjoyed Box VR. Its music is great and its design is well thought out. It may feel a bit light on features but the game gets you straight into the action and burning off those calories. What more can you ask for? It is great fun and a good workout to boot.

Few exercise games are as enjoyable and comprehensive as BoxVR so if you want to sweat while wearing a headset, give it a go!

Its strong soundtrack and fundamental gameplay makes it an even better fitness option than Beat Saber.

Mixing fitness and fun, this VB boxing gym throws the light swords out and takes on the rhythm genre with gusto. A great, if limited, soundtrack, a range of classes, and some serious full body movement make this a fantastic alternative to VR beat em ups. geddit!?

BoxVR brings together the rhythm of music and movement into a fitness gaming package that is one part color coordinated jabs, hooks, uppercuts, and blocks, along with leaning left, right, and squatting down. If you haven’t tried a fitness VR game or think that gaming and fitness shouldn’t be in the same sentence together, then you need to try BoxVR.

If you want a different experience to Beat Saber, then yes it’s pretty neat, a good workout and fun to play even if it’s exhausting. If you’re looking for a fitness game on the Quest then this is a rather focused effort which simply works as intended for those who are prepared to use the correct form.
