Whether you’re a fan of the Creed movie series or not, you have to admit they’re pretty motivational. They had the majority of us on the edge of our seats, throwing combinations and making us want to quit our day jobs and spend 8 hours a day pounding the punching bag. So, if you really feel you can bout with the best of them, take Creed: Rise to Glory for a spin on PSVR. The game really authenticates the feeling of being a pro boxer and training like one.

Much like the movie, the game sees you playing as Adonis Creed, who must go toe-to-toe with the world’s best boxers. However, before you get to throwing lighting quick haymakers, you’ll need some practice with the legendary Rocky Balboa. Then when you’re ready you can fulfill your legacy. And if you best it without a scratch, you can also see how you shape up against other boxers in online PvP. If you want the best experience for an authentic boxing sports game on PSVR, Creed: Rise to Glory is it.

 

 

4. Dream Match Tennis VR

Tennis is one of those games that you watch from a distance and think to yourself, “I can do that.” Until you actually pick up the racket and realize the amount of skill it takes to hit a tennis ball over the net – which is a lot more than you’d anticipate. However, before you get to crush your friends on the real court, you’ll need to refine your skills, which you should do in Dream Match Tennis VR.

The game has three game modes, which are Practice, Exhibition, and Challenge. Practice and exhibition are where you’ll gain a feel for your serve and swing, as well as practice the iconic tennis grunt. Then once your grunts are loud enough to be heard outside the arena, you’re ready to face the 8 opponents in Challenge. If these end up being too easy, then test how you fair in Online Multiplayer. Regardless, if it’s intense tennis you’re looking for, Dream Match Tennis VR has it.

 

 

3. Sprint Vector

Running may not be the most exciting sport out there, but it certainly is in Sprint Vector. The whole point of the game is to run, jump, climb and fly at extreme speeds, across insane maps and obstacles. The game comes with 21 courses, twelve of which are intense, fast-playing races. The following nine are wicked obstacle courses with several pathways meant to put your quick decision-making abilities and talent, to the test.

The game also features a ton of Power-ups. Ranging from going nitro fast to blowing up other racers with rockets, there are tons of ways to shake up the outcome of a race. The game can be played offline single-player, but the main joy comes from dominating the online multiplayer within its game modes. It’s guaranteed to get your heart pumping, so much that you might even run through the wall while scrambling to reach the finish line.

 

 

2. Everybody’s Golf VR

If you want to slow down the pace and get into a tempo sport, golf is a great place to start. Although we cannot guarantee that you will find serenity in this game, since putting a little ball into a hole 400 yards away is a rather rage-causing task. But it’s also the fun of Golf and the enjoyment of Everybody’s Golf VR. Which is currently the best golf sports game on PSVR, with a free demo, if you wanted to try it out before going all in.

The game has three 18-hole courses, each one distinct from the others. Explore a classical Forrest course, a Seaside course, and even a Jurassic-themed Dinosaur course. However, you’ll have to best each course in that order to unlock all of them. Which shouldn’t be a worry as long as you get a few practice swings in on the driving range. So, if you’re looking for a relaxing PSVR sports game, Everybody’s Golf VR will do the trick.
