Review: Toybox Turbos

Codemasters have broken new ground. A full title released for a piece of hardware not yet publicly available, and polished in it’s support despite the limited audience.

Wales Interactive’s Infinity Runner joins the small collective of videogames that offer support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) long before a consumer version of the device is available.
