    Beat Saber is the perfect recipe for a rhythm game. Easy to pick up, difficult to put down, and a wealth of complexity to explore once it has you hooked.

    The Oculus Rift version is as good as ever and now offers even more value for money thanks to the new features, it is a little shame that there’s no cross-buy support for Oculus Quest. And as for the mobile version, there’s a reason why Beat Saber made VRFocus’ ‘Top 10 List’ for launch day purchases as you can now take Beat Saber with you anywhere. Either version of Beat Saber is great for new and veteran VR fans alike, and VRFocus’ score applies to both.

    And of course, if you’re on PC it’s endlessly expandable with custom tracks thanks to the level editor and mods.) It should absolutely be a go-to for introducing anyone to virtual reality.

    The Quest controllers are much more precise, and together with the lack of cables transforms this from a good game to a truly great one.

    Beat Saber is the perfect example of what all VR rhythm games should be. Its gameplay mechanics hit right at the target’s center, glueing the player for more and more games.

    Beat Saber is stylish, fun and hits all the right notes for a VR-native rhythm game. In its Early Access state, it’s missing out on some variability when it comes to songs and visuals, but lays the foundation for a game that has the potential to charm a pretty wide audience. Gameplay is intuitive, but also difficult to master, making it a title worth revisiting, and passing around to anyone regardless of age or gaming background.

    With only 10 songs, you can blow through that track list, beating most all of them on at least Hard, in a single afternoon. Mastering them on Expert takes time, but it gets repetitive. The only game modes are an arcade-style Solo and a pass-the-headset-style Party Mode. We’d love to see a campaign (which is mentioned on the Steam page) as well as more robust multiplayer features. In its current state, we absolutely recommend Beat Saber wholeheartedly.

    More modes and plenty more music (and a song editor) would be incredible additions, but there’s still plenty more to come from Beat Saber. What players can get in their $20 purchase of Beat Saber is a rhythm experience that’s swiftly becoming one of my absolute favorite experiences on the Oculus Rift and it can only get better going forward.

    I wonder where are all those silent negative reviews are coming from. Is this "I dont have VR headset, so this game is bad" logic? Because II wonder where are all those silent negative reviews are coming from. Is this "I dont have VR headset, so this game is bad" logic? Because I cannot find any meaningful explanation. It's the best rythm game right now, both VR and non-VR, period. I'm saying this as a long time ddr, in the groove, and OSU player. I've shown VR to many people, and Beat Saber is the single game that was liked by absolutely everyone. People buy VR headsets just to play Beat Saber and nothing else. So don't believe negative reviews. If you have VR headset, just buy it. If you don't go to one of the VR arcades and try it out Full Review »
