    Regardless of the platform (PC or PS4) Beat Saber is one of the best VR games ever created. I know that slashing flying cubes with lightsabers might not sound like much fun, but believe me that it is, in no small part thanks to the fact that your movements are recreated in the virtual world perfectly.

    Beat Saber is a rhythm game that’s both simple and fun. Unfortunately, its soundtrack is very limited at the moment.

    Beat Saber is possible the best VR experience ever made. It is an incredibly satisfying rhythm game which uses the immersion of VR to evoke a sense of scale, power and energy that hugely enhances the underlying gameplay loop. The mechanics, music and VR environment tap into something deep in your psyche that creates an irresistibly fun and empowering experience.

    Beat Saber on PSVR is exquisite. Overall it’s a more polished, feature-packed, and expanded version of the Early Access PC title, while still retaining the core of what made it a viral sensation in the first place. I rarely missed the better tracking afforded by the Rift, Vive, and Windows VR platforms and actually found myself enjoying the crisp visuals and appropriately shaped PS Move controllers throughout it all. The new tracks are almost all excellent, the campaign mode is a great addition, and it overall feels like a complete game now.

    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.

    Imaginative use of VR to make one of the best new music games of the generation, and which also manages to be the best Star Wars game never made.

    An incredibly fun and addictive rhythm game that takes the premise of the genre and skyrockets it to new heights with the use of VR technology and the Move Controllers. Sadly, the PS4 version lacks the rich content for the PC version that is created by the community.

The great thing is anyone can pick up and play. I thought originally the fact that there was no licensed songs would make the game not so great compared to all the PC videos I've seen with modded songs. However the song selection is on point and I cannot see a single person who wouldn't enjoy playing this game. Must buy for PSVR owners! Expand

This game is exactly what VR is supposed to be. I shared this game with friends, and everyone has loved it. The tracking is so smooth and very precise. You feeling like your chopping up blocks to some great beats. Great work out also. Great way to get your teens and wife moving. I will definitely buy more content from this game. Just hope it comes soon enough. Expand

While lots of games port known game mechanics to VR Beat Saber delivers a whole new experience. The gameplay is dead simple but SO MUCH FUN. The tracking is perfect.
    I wish they deliver DLC in the future to enhance the number of music titles and maybe even more/different play modes. The movement aspect of the game is probably one of the things I enjoy the most. You get into the beat with your light sabers, you start dancing and you actually do a workout. If you don't own it, get it. If you are unsure, try it somewhere else.

    A simple concept, executed perfectly. When you beat a level on expert, you come out feeling like you can take on the world. Brilliant.

The music fits perfectly with the game. The 5 difficultly levels provide a fair challenge (especially Expert+, which I still struggle to complete) and there are modifiers for those that don’t like the pressure of slashing every note or those that want the hardest game possible. Very accessible game for all ages and types of players. I got this game for free with my PSVR, but I would’ve bought it as a stand-alone if it didn’t come with it. I also played the DLC, which was enjoyable, and the campaign of the main game provided a fun little expansion as well. The controls are tight and the PS Move controllers work very well with the game. My only complaints are that party mode makes no sense (only one VR at a time?) and that there aren’t enough songs (30-40, Depending on if you get DLC). Once they add more songs, perhaps it will be even better; amazing game as it is though. Expand

    Original tracks and maps SUCK.

    The devs just dont know how to do interesting maps. Nor show any effort in the right way.
    They've got tenths of good maps examples, but just dont care, they keep doing boring maps.
    If you dont know why, just go and download a few tracks by the moding community.
    I guarantee you will never ever again play one of theirs.
    I played beat sabers original tracks 1-2 only.

    But wait, no, you cant play moded tracks anymore because devs got gready EA and disabled mods so they could sell their dlc more easily. Which also suck because its the same genre of music and they made the maps. Their trying to sell this **** 30$ for ~9 songs made 5 years ago. All from the same artists.
