Ragnaröck is a fantastic new addition to the rhythm action genre and is one of the most enjoyable games to hit VR. It's a perfect blend of aesthetic and mechanics and offers some incredibly satisfying gameplay. While its tracklist may not be to everybody's taste, the ease of adding custom songs and the sheer bloody fun of the core game makes it a must-buy.
With Nuclear Blast RAID, Ragnarock welcomes 9 new metal tracks that will delight fans of the genre. The formula is still as effective as ever. Of course, we would have liked to have even more, or even enjoy a new setting, but it's always good to take, this time with folk metal and pagan metal that take us in their sustained rhythm. The drakkar, which sports a bow head in the shape of momentum, as the new hammers are, as usual, successful, with a radioactive green reminiscent of the logo of the music label associated with the title.

It wouldn’t be unfair to summarize Ragnarock by saying it is Beat Saber with a Viking theme. And it is undoubtedly another solid VR workout game that will have you burning boatloads of calories, but having so much fun you won’t notice how sweaty you are. But Ragnarock lacks some of the elements that make Beat Saber great; there isn’t enough variation in the rhythmic actions you do to the music, and the playlist of songs is a bit paltry (although the devs have said they will be adding to it). Combine that with mediocre visuals and Ragnarock is a decent game and fun way to get a great workout, but one whose repetition might make you want to hang up your helmet after a while. Pick this one up if you’re a fan of Norse themes, you’re looking to take a break from Beat Saber … or you just want to rock.
With his proposal taking precedence over the swaying and electronic music of his competitors, Ragnaröck succeeds in his bet to impose himself on the vr rhythm games scene.

Get your drumming going and inspire your crew to the stage of Hellfest!
A solid silly and utterly joyous romp through the Norse realms with a soundtrack that can row for days.
Inspire your shipmates to row faster by beating drums in time.
Ragnarock is a near-flawless game and a phenomenal experience. If you’re looking for a Beat Saber killer, this is it. It’s clear that so much love went into creating Ragnarock, and you can feel the developer’s dedication with every single beat. If you’re a fan of rhythm games and are looking for something to blow the others out of the water, you’re obligated to pick up Ragnarock. For the power! For the glory! For the horde!
Virtual Reality and rhythm games are a dime a dozen. There are VR staples like Beat Saber, Synth Riders, Pistol Whip, and now Ragnarock joins the ranks. In Ragnarock you are a captain of a Viking ship tasked with beating drums as runes stream towards you. The runes stream down four paths from left to right. Hitting the runes in time results in a power meter going up. Viking knots on the side of your hammers light up with each successful hit. When you hit your stride and combo enough runes together you can activate a powerful point multiplier.
Whether using one headset or another, fans of rhythm simulators and European power metal should definitely check out this Viking visual styled head banger.
For the cost of only $24.99, this is a title that I can easily recommend and would so at even double this price. Don’t believe me? All you have to do is take a look at the Steam user reviews which was sitting at 96% with over 1100 reviews as of the writing of this. If you are someone who enjoys a good rhythm game, or are looking to get your heart rate up, this is a title you should certainly check out.
