Beat Saber – VR

“It’s right up there with the best of the best.”

★★★★★

I hope that if you have a Playstation VR that you’ve already played Beat Saber at least once, if not then we need to have a serious conversation.

Even if you haven’t, no doubt over the years you’ve dabbled in things like Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Dance Dance Revolution, even Fruit Ninja. This my friends is next level! Of course, if you like Star Wars there’s the added advantage of sabers.

I didn’t discover Beat Saber on my own, leading up to Christmas 2018 I’d seen a few advertisements for it on the Playstation Facebook page, but I never clicked on it. Then when I went to visit my family for the holidays my brother enlightened me… and the rest as they say is history.

Now, I’m not nearly as good on it as he is, but I do alright… I’ve progressed from easy to medium to hard mode – and I will conquer expert one of these days, and then the dreaded new ‘expert +’, but that’s a problem for another day.

Seeing him play it even without being inside of the VR at the time made me want more. Then when I first went into the game I was ready, motion controllers in hand, headphones in (I’d strongly recommend using headphones for the full immersive experience) I picked a song at the recommendation of my brother and off I went, cutting blocks left and right, moving from side to side, ducking and flailing around.

It is amazing, the interaction and impressiveness is incredible it’s right up there with the best of the best, it’s one of the best PSVR games out there at the moment.

Also, I’ll tell you this now, the game is a workout, as I’m writing this my arm muscles are feeling the 2 hours I’ve just spent playing on it and I’ve almost tripled my workout goal on my Apple Watch. It was all worth it, because I achieved something that I set out to do today, finish Angel Voices on 100% on hard mode.
