Unplugged for PS VR2 is the most addictive music game on the platform. A formula that works perfectly, that is addictive, that can "sting" the most demanding players and that at the same time manages to have fun both being alone and having a game session with friends. A real discovery, a game that I would not have tried if it weren't for this review and which I am now grateful for both having and having enjoyed.
Unplugged: Air Guitar may not sell the PSVR2 hardware on its own, but it needs to be played by every PSVR2 owner. With a fun track list and immersive gameplay, Unplugged beautifully fills that void left by Guitar Hero. Issues aside, Unplugged is more than worth the cost of admission.
Playing air guitar to familiar songs in virtual reality is a gift we didn't know we needed. It's a pretty fun game to experience which is partly due to the good tracklist, the different difficulty levels and the immersion. One downside: the explanations are somewhat random, which can make it confusing if you're just starting out. It is also a pity that there is no progression system in the game, which makes it more of a game for in between when you have nothing to do.
Unplugged: Air Guitar is a great concept that works quite well despite using only Sense Controllers to mimic playing a guitar rather than requiring an unwieldy accessory but falls short due to limitations on the type of chord progressions and notes that the PSVR2 is capable of reproducing without hand tracking. A good song list will ensure that most players will remain entertained for a few hours, but despite the developer’s best attempts to ensure the game remains challenging by adding new techniques throughout and multiple difficulty levels, it still becomes rather repetitive.
Unplugged - Air Guitar is a lot of fun for the duration that it lasts but after the repetition and lack of visual variety starts to sinks in, you'll gladly put your axe down, take off your headset, and re-enter the real world.
In many ways, Unplugged: Air Guitar feels like the modern-day equivalent of Guitar Hero, without the need for a fake, plastic guitar. Easy to pick up but hard to master, it’s an experience that really can make you feel like you’re playing an instrument if you put in the time and effort to learn its intricacies. And with its impressive setlist of songs, anyone fond of having a good strum should probably pick it up if they have a PSVR 2 and machinations of becoming a rock god.
