    Pistol Whip is a triumph of game design. Rather than trying to wedge a bunch of mechanics onto a platform that doesn’t welcome them, Pistol Whip instead focuses on what makes VR fun – color, sound, and motion. This is a game that connects players with the developers’ intentions through its simple interface, leaving the player sweaty, inspired, and triumphant. Masterpieces come in all forms – and Pistol Whip qualifies.

    Pistol Whip’s multiple difficulties and modifiers like Deadeye and Dual-wield add depth to a game that’s more addictive and satisfying than Beat Saber. The 15 scenes included at the time of this review are all in the same general musical style and a bit of variety would be nice, but that might be coming with future updates. Pistol Whip is the game that brings me back to my VR headset again and again and I expect to keep playing through every update Cloudhead has planned for it.

    Pistol Whip is likely to be the PlayStation VR game of the year. It’s simple concept works incredibly well and has few faults. If you’ve ever wanted to be John Wick, or any other badass gun-wielding gangster for that matter, this is the game for you. Modifiers and multiple difficulties extend the life of the game even further, although this may not be enough for some. Once free content updates and extra DLC tracks arrive, though, there’ll be plenty of content to enjoy.

    Even though Pistol Whip has a small musical offering at the moment, it's one of the best VR experiences I have played on PSVR and in general. It's easy to pick up, great to play, and tough to put down, and ultimately, that's all it's about. It isn't rich in features yet, but with a content roadmap in place, this potentially looks like "the next big thing," although it's marginally held back by a lack of content and song variety for now.

    Pistol Whip turns our weapon into a musical instrument so we can enjoy an incredible techno OST while shooting and dodging bullets in John Wick style.

    Pistol Whip is a top-notch VR game and one that's 100% worth getting for fans of rail shooters. Its stylish visuals and clever scoring system make it an immersive and challenging experience that's hard to put down once you get into the groove.

    Despite the lack of content overall, Pistol Whip is still a game that will give players plenty of fun as you blast your way through hundreds of henchmen leaving you feeling like a total badass.

    Are you REALLY that sick of Beat Saber yet?

    Pistol whip is pretty fun, the graphics are highly stylized, mostly to allow high frame rates.

    Pistol whip is pretty fun, the graphics are highly stylized, mostly to allow high frame rates. It doesn't have anything "new" after the first few levels, in my case I didn't find myself going back for more than 4 or 5 plays.

    I'm putting this on every PSVR review: All PSVR titles need to be on PSNow

    The first two hours I had fun, then I got bored. I cannot understand the extremely positive Reviews...

    I don't know why the rating is good. It's not that much fun. It's a boring game.
