Rating Notes:

Soundboxing is a rhythm music game that requires the player to punch colored markers in time with music. A very popular early VR title, the modding community has been creating high quality music maps that can stream from YouTube music videos for some time. Some of the songs require the player to reach quite a range to the left and right, as well as up and down. Maps don’t tend to require the player to move their feet in order to complete a song, but often require upper body movement that feels similar to aerobics or dancing. Rater played through the top songs suggested by Soundboxing based on community popularity and community challenges. We believe these songs are fairly representative of the typical Soundboxing experience.
