Ski Jumping Pro VR
Developer: Yippee Entertainment
Publisher: Kalypso Media
Genres: Simulation, Sports
I do not think for one minute that this is a game for everyone. However, if you have a aptitude for learning a technique and like winter sport simulations then this game could be for you. After a steep early learning curve I really started to enjoy it, it works well and has a simple yet addictive gameplay loop.
Ski Jumping Pro VR delivers the excitement and thrills of performing the ski jump without actually getting cold, or falling on your butt – which is great. Despite wishing there was more to the game other than just the ski jump, I can’t really complain as that’s what the focus of the game is. If played in short bursts then you’re bound to get more enjoyment out of it as you’ll experience the progression through unlocks and rewards without feeling the monotony and repetition which can be felt with long play sessions. Ski Jumping Pro VR is the most realistic ski jumping simulation game I’ve played in VR so far, even with the QTE motions (which work really well).
If the controls could be adjusted to be more forgiving with the timing, Ski Jumping Pro VR would be exactly what it needs to be. Unfortunately, given the circumstances, you may be better off forgetting the controls and simply watch a VR ski jump video. This game could’ve made for an excellent experience, but unfortunately, it’s simply too difficult to recommend as it is.
