    If you have a PC VR setup (Rift/Vive) and even remotely like music rhythm games, then this game is a no-brainer. Trust me, just get it.



    My arms are about to fall off... Who knew a light saber/fruit ninja/guitar hero mash-up could be so much fun?!

    The developers are also releasing a level editor soon so folks can add their own music/level design:
    https://steamcommunity.com/games/620980/announcements/detail/1662269345678184305

    There's also already an unofficial mod that lets you do so - here's a site with a bunch of custom levels/songs that can be added: https://beatsaver.com/

    And Reddit is a pretty good resource as to the latest on this mod.

    It's a fun game. Finally able to get through Balearic Pumping on expert although I'm still no better than a rank C.

    I bought this earlier today. Lot of fun but I don't think the walls work very well with a Samsung headset; I have to move my whole damn body for most of them and some of them I can't avoid no matter what.

    Otherwise it works great. Hoping for some custom Metallica or The Prodigy songs soon.

    This game is super fun.

    It’s the first game that I can’t play for long because of fogging up issues. Never happened in my Rift until I got this game!

    I hope they add more tracks because it is a bit light at the moment

    Read my first post again, with more feeling this time. :) There are well over 300 hundred custom tracks out now that have been created by fans of this game. You just need to use this song injector mod utility which works great. Once installed, you can download whatever customized tracks you want to add from this site: www.beatsaver.com Just place them into the game's "CustomSongs" folder. Fire up the game, select solo play, and wham, you now have lots more to play.

    Bought it day it came out. This game makes you feel like a BAMF. Don't even know why. Something about just hacking and slashing to some awesome music with light sabers just feels amazing. Must buy. Killer App no doubt.

    Just bought this today after all the rave reviews. Definitely cool. I just wish I didn't have to have a hot thing strapped to my sweaty face while I play it. :p

    I know how ya feel. This has been the only game to get me nasty sweaty in the HMD.

    I'm thinking about getting that 'pleather' VR Cover for my Rift as I hear it prevents fogging up of the HMD and will also greatly improve the ability to wipe the wetness off the headset.

    Where DDR failed to give people actual dance moves this game excels at training MDMA glow stick wavers’ abilities.

    They should add a difficulty beyond expert titled “On drugs?”.

    How are people doing those overlays showing them in the game? It's chromakey (green screen), but how to you get the camera view like that? Built in to game?

    So I got this awhile back and just got around to installing it. One of the fans is WAY louder than the other with a lot of vibration, so I'm guessing maybe it's defective. I emailed support to see what they say.

    If I stop the loud fan, the other one is very quiet and seems to work well.

    After downloading lots of custom songs, im ashamed to say Taylor Swift - Shake it off is one of my favorite to do so far, was never a big fan of the song but the beat map and the song go really well with the game lol. Whats your guys favorites so far?
