Gemma Jessop of CherryPop Games commented on the release by saying: “We’ve been humbled by all the feedback we’ve had todate for VRFC, and we’re delighted to share our journey with fans on PC. VRFC is a team game, bringing competitive elements is essential, and natural addition to the game, but we’re not stopping there; those who want to hone their skills offline are in for a treat.”

All of this, along with the eight player online mode, runs at a smooth 90 frames per second allowing for an immersive, energetic and engaging full body workout all while allowing for the enjoyment of football within virtual space.
VRFocus’ Editor Kevin Joyce reviewed VRFC: Virtual Reality Football Club saying: “VRFC: Virtual Reality Football Club remains one of the best sports experiences VR has to offer. More than that however, it’s also one of the best social VR experiences currently available, with the tension of competition and the misery of defeat likely to help make new friends (and potentially enemies) across the VR community. VRFC: Virtual Reality Football Club is a welcome foundation for sports simulations in VR, and with the FIFA franchise now surpassing 25 editions (not including the many spin-offs such as FIFA Street and FIFA World Cup), it’s a wonder to think exactly how much of VRFC: Virtual Reality Football Club will remain in VR football 25 years from now.”
