Beat Saber is one of the most talked about VR games on the market right now.
"Beat Saber is a VR rhythm game, where your goal is to slash the beats which fit perfectly into precisely handcrafted music."
Players are given lightlaser swords among each for slicing rhythmatic music chops. This game is one of the most interest and addictive games that we would recommend trying.
The game features POP/STARS, the number 1 Billboard worldwide hit from League of Legends supergroud K/DA.
Every beat requires a unique saber to use, and the direction you need to match. All the music is perfectly composed to match the hand movements.
The goal of the game is to make players almost seem like they are dancing, while slicing the VR cubes and avoiding obstacles.
You get a rush from each slice, as the cut is supported by a strong rhythmatic sound and visual effect to enhance the experience.
Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, SUPERHOT VR is the definitive VR FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It's just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing weapons off fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
