Welcome back to the Vive list. It’s a pretty slow week here, but there’s still some great stuff worth your time, including the return of a beloved classic.
In the meantime, if you missed the previous iteration of this list, you can see those new releases here. And don’t forget that UploadVR has a Steam community group, complete with a curated list of recommendations so that you don’t have to waste any money finding out what’s good in the world of VR.
We also have a top list of the absolute best HTC Vive games — which is updated every few months with the latest and greatest options.
The Big Releases
Rez Infinite, from Enhance Games
Price: $24.99 (Rift, currently discounted)
The classic rhythm action game finally makes a move from PSVR over to PC headsets. Rez Infinite allows you to play the entire original game inside VR for the first time, plus it included a new Area X mode that allows for free movement. This is a classic revived inside VR.
Recommendation: If you loved the original you have to try this out.
War Robots VR: The Skirmish, from Pixonic
Price: Free (Rift)
More well-polished mech action waits for you here. War Robots VR is a quick teaser of what the main series would look like inside of a headset. It’s not the longest VR experience and only uses gamepad, but it’s worth checking out for free.
Recommendation: Definitely give this one a look.
Let’s Bowl VR, from Rising Fun Games
Bowling might not be the most immediately obvious and requested VR activity, but we won’t complain if a polished version of the game hits headsets. Let’s Bowl VR looks like it’s up to snuff, even in Early Access mode.
Recommendation: Love to bowl? Well then this is a no-brainer.
Uploands Motel: VR Thriller, from Gurashop
A story driven escape room game is on offer here, and it looks pretty intriguing even if the visuals and voice acting sound a little basic. Still, there aren’t that many escape room games that seem to have genuine effort put into them.
Recommendation: Definitely worth a look.
