A good session with Beat Saber literally leaves me breathless. When I’m in the groove, swinging red and blue sabers to precisely bisect an onslaught of incoming boxes as fast as I can might be as close to the feeling of being a Jedi at a rave as I’ll ever come. This challenging rhythm game is definitely a little light on tracks out of the box, but what’s there is both catchy and highly replayable due to the way its scoring system encourages pinpoint accuracy and followthrough, plus a handful of alternate modes to play them on.
Beat Saber comes at the end of a really important year for the PSVR, with games like Tetris Effect, Moss, and Astro Bot Rescue Mission giving renewed life to the two-year old device. These games — but especially Beat Saber — are the best evidence for VR being more than a promising but ultimately niche technology. It has mass appeal and gameplay that just about anyone can enjoy.
Best VR game ever made. I just LOVE Beat Saber. I bought this game because everyone was saying it's the best VR game. Played it for 30 minutes, I was sweating so much but i really enjoyed it. Now i have like 20 hours on Beat Saber and still love it. Borrowed it to my grandma, brother and mom and they enjoyed it too. 10/10 VR game for me but it would be better if there would be custom songs on PS4 too.
With this PS4 version which skips the modding part of the PC version, Beat Saber brings a new and unsuccessful campaign mode along with some new exclusive tracks. Still, the concept is amazing, the game content is decent and the PS Move are doing great without being perfect.
10 out of God damn 10. Anyone scoring it less is still cycling on a Penny Farthing.
Yes you're gonna pay on top for your favourite albums. It wipes the floor with almost every £45 AAA game I've played this year, so giving musicians royalties (which they need to keep making music) isn't a big ask.
Maybe the record companies need to start tieing in Beat Sabre packs with album purchases, or some sort of subscription like itunes, or Spotify etc.
This game is a beast, it gives you exercise, fun and music all in one go. Nuff said.
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. In it's current state the motion tracking is awful. If you turn on the game and navigate through the PS menus, you'll see how sluggish and unresponsive it becomes. It does NOT happen with any other game, literally just this bag of cat ****
**** THIS GAME.
