    This is a game-changer, not just because of its intuitive movement, but it really seems to be a sport of the future. Echo Arena offers something the best sci-fi writers couldn't have imagined VR to be. This is what you buy Oculus Rift for.

    Make no mistake about it: Echo Arena is a great game and is easily one of the best multiplayer VR games to date. The fast-paced and intense gameplay is unlike anything else we’ve ever seen and the sheer skill required to nail the timing of group coordination is immensely satisfying. Once you’re on a roll with a team you like it’s hard to stop playing. But the lack of map and game variety, as well as the relative learning curve, hold this back from being even better.

    Even if you only want to feel the sensation of floating in zero-gravity, Echo Arena is still worth picking up – because it’s free.

    Echo Arena sets a new high bar for competitive multiplayer VR, and feels like a major step forward for virtual reality. [Tested with Oculus Rift]

    Echo Arena perfectly translates the complex but natural Lone Echo locomotion system, offering a sporting title with a small amount of content but giving you the ability to play different games.

    One of the best VR games I've played, if not the best. A wonderful experience, especially for no price!

Exactly what I was hoping to experience in the medium! The competitive nature combined with the disorienting nature of zero gravity, its a perfect storm for wild fun and spontaneous moments of delight and frustration! Expand

    This is not not only the best game I have played on VR, but also the most fun I had a in a multiplayer game since the original Duke Nukem. TheThis is not not only the best game I have played on VR, but also the most fun I had a in a multiplayer game since the original Duke Nukem. The mechanics are very simple, but there is definitely enough depth to keep you interested. Graphics are adequately polished, locomotion is perfectly solved, there is no nausea whatsoever and the community is very friendly and helpful when you have any questions.

    However, what makes this really special is is the combination of an incredibly immersive experience with exciting online sports.

In this game you are weightless and largely move around by grabbing surfaces (and players). This simple mechanic requires skill to be precise, and provides foundations for a fantastic team sport experience. Add a vibrant community, default tendency for always-on microphones and expressive avatar, and you have an explosive combination that can keep you occupied for a really long time. It feel fantastic to progress, and it feels like you are developing skills rather than learning mechanisms (unlike many other games).

    Cannot recommend it enough, and also a update is headed it's way in just a few weeks to add combat.

    All VR headset owners should play this.
