    Beat Saber is a must-play for anyone interested in virtual reality, but not for the reasons we typically associate with the platform. It won’t make you crane your neck to take in the majesty of your surroundings, but Beat Saber uses VR to place you into the music and taps into your carnal desire to hit things with swords. Years into its life, the gaming public is still unsure of this new way to play video games, but Beat Saber has the potential to convince skeptics to take another look.

    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 has just about everything I want from a rhythm game.

    Music and sweaty lightsaber choreographies merge into an impressive VR experience that unfortunately lacks content and song-import for your favorite music.

    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.

    Beat Saber is one of the most fun VR-games to play on PlayStation 4. The combination of lightsabers, great music and intense virtual reality is pure gold.

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.

    I didnt want to buy the game at 36$, but my kids wanted to play the game really bad.

However, there are limited number of songs which you can play and get really bored with selection very quickly. I and kids played the game for a few days and now we are bored with songs and stopped playing the game. The kids are typically looking for those songs of their favorite singers (i.e. Dua Lipa, Ariana grande, etc...).

    I wish they could allow custom songs like PC.

    I dont believe that price is justified for the songs selection. I recommend the game, but wait until the price goes down or until they offer more free/addon songs selection.
