    Superhot VR is built upon a one-of-a-kind bullet-time mechanic that translates phenomenally well to VR. After a slow start, you'll find that the game is part action and part puzzle, as you dodge incoming firing in slow motion while finding the most effective way to shatter your enemies. The core gameplay is challenging and enjoyable, though it comes up just short of hitting a masterful climax of game mechanics. The story elements are mostly distractions, and, like many of the best VR experiences, we're left wishing there was more than the 2 or so hours of gameplay available. [Tested with Oculus Touch]

    I can’t stress how much fun SUPERHOT VR is when you become fully immersed… it’s like being able to be both John Wick and Neo at once. You can have your cake, eat it, and then be offered seconds.

    SuperHot VR is one of the best games VR has seen yet. It’s a little bit short and on rare occasions the AI goes a bit loopy, but during the 99% of the time when everything is trying to kill you, it’s an incredible rush.

    Superhot VR’s fantastically clever time-manipulating concept empowers you with the superhuman reflexes of a slow-motion action hero. Shattering waves of glass-like enemies while moving your face out of the path of incoming bullets is a thrilling challenge in both the cryptic story mode and the endless mode that follows.

    Superhot VR is one of the few VR games that you have absolutely to play thanks to the intriguing concept of time manipulation and to the perfect utilization of VR mechanics.

    Ultimately, SUPERHOT VR feels more like the ultimate tech demo than a fully-fledged VR essential. Its gameplay is incredibly engaging, and it’s a perfect title to introduce someone to the capabilities of the Quest, but its runtime is rather short if you’re purchasing it just for yourself. There is replay value in the post-game modes, but you’re more likely to relive the magic by introducing SUPERHOT VR to someone else.

    This is what it feels like to be Neo in The Matrix. The simple but amazing surroundings combined with the original principle that time only changes when you move, makes Superhot an amazing experience.

The mechanics are easy to learn, and it only needs a standing play area as opposed to room scale, so you can still play it if you don't have a lot of space. It is definitely one of my favourite VR games that I own. Just one extra thing I'd like to mention: Make sure that you're in the exact center of your play area if you don't have much space, and check the play area marker on the floor every now and then, because I've hit my desk a few times while playing.

    One of my favorite games in VR. The mechanics of SuperHot that worked on PC are even better with a headset. Must play for any VR owner.

As a consequence my legs were sore for several days due to ducking and dodging bullets. My only wish is that there was a level builder so that we could design our own scenarios and share them with others. Expand

Also there can be consistent bug with Oculus Touch controls that can only be fixed by validating and reacquiring broken file.
    Still this is absolutely mast-have experience in VR.

    Of all the VR games I own, this is easily the best. Alot of games I've played once or twice, or fire up to show friends and family what VR isOf all the VR games I own, this is easily the best. Alot of games I've played once or twice, or fire up to show friends and family what VR is like. But Superhot was the first game that made me really believe VR could be the future. There are flaws of course; it's much too short for the current price tag of $30 (only a few hours long), limited range of movement, not being available to Vive owners, and the occasional "why are my hands not doing them what I want them to" moment. But this is the kind of game that is important to the future of VR -- it's incredibly fun, it's fast paced and frenetic, it immerses you, and you don't want to stop playing it till you've gotten all the way through. If you own the Touch then I can't recommend this game enough, in fact of all the motion controlled games I've played this is the only one I would say is a "must own". Especially if you were a fan of the original game, you will not be disappointed. It's not perfect, but it's about as good a VR gaming experience as is currently available. Expand

    This is easily my favourite iteration of Superhot - the core concept that time only moves when you do just suits the medium so well. If youThis is easily my favourite iteration of Superhot - the core concept that time only moves when you do just suits the medium so well. If you wanna feel like a badass in VR then pick this game up. Dodging bullets and watching them whir past your head as you fight off the polygonal, glass-like enemies just feels brilliant here. The art style is simplistic yet super clean and unblemished; the universally clinical aesthetic makes this is a very immersive title, and one that looks great on the Quest 2. It's easy to get engrossed in the game and caught up in the terrific gameplay that lets you feel almost effortlessly cool.

    The only thing that feels off is throwing things, as it isn't very intuitive. My throws were more accurate when pushing items forward rather than throwing them overhand.

    Superhot VR is extremely short but quite replayable and there's a bunch of different modes to have a go at, including a great endless mode with a variety of maps. The game is such good fun that it's easily worth the price of admission.

    Played on Oculus Quest 2.
