Rez Infinite Reviews
Timeless gameplay, visuals and music come together in one of the best shoot ‘em-ups of all time; with the new level and VR options only adding to the immersion.
Even if you don’t have a PSVR, Rez Infinite is still the most complete version of an imaginative cult classic with deceptively nuanced gameplay, but if you do, it’s also an impressive glimpse into the transportive power of virtual reality.
Despite it's short campaign--you can complete everything in a little more than an hour, if you're skilled--Rez Infinite is the game to buy a PSVR for. It's hypnotic and enveloping. And it's transformative, both within itself and in the wider scheme of the experiences made possible by VR. You don't want to sleep on Rez Infinite, because with the addition of more polished visual flair and the dreamy Area X, we have a new classic for the new generation on our hands.
I don't know how this series keeps holding on, but I'm glad it does. Initially debuting as a Sega exclusive, it jumped ship to Microsoft, and now, Sony. I don't really care who gets it next, I just want more Rez.
The incredible gameplay, audio and visuals Enhance Games created is simply amazing for a launch PlayStation VR title, very rare in some cases. The VR option only adding to the immersion to this on-rails shooter is one of the best reasons to pick up a PlayStation VR unit. Although the game is very short, new content and unlockables by replaying areas make great use of your time.
With its 1080p resolution and crisper visuals, you’ll find very little reason to not pick this up and play. This is the best that Rez has ever been.
An already amazing journey into synesthesia achieves its full potential with PS VR and Area X. A no-brainer buy for anyone who owns Sony's VR headset.
Lovingly remade in high definition and enhanced via optional PlayStation VR support, Rez Infinite crystallises, polishes and preserves Rez's legacy, making it an essential purchase for PSVR adopters and standard PS4 owners alike. The untethered 3D-cyberspace of Area X presents a tantalising vision of the IP's potential future and adds an extra layer to what is undoubtedly the definitive edition of Mizuguchi's masterpiece.
Rez Infinite is a must-have game for anyone with a PSVR, but even if you don’t it is still the best way to experience a beloved classic title. The unique gameplay found in Rez Infinite is enhanced by the incredible art style, which is something that you don’t see in recently released games.
Magnificent many years after its original release, Rez Infinite finally feels at home on PlayStation VR – and virtual reality has got its first killer app. A sensational sensory overload, this sublime shooter may be short-lived, but you'll be hard pushed to find an experience more deserving of your attention this year.
Rez Infinite is the best game on PlayStation VR right now. It is simply the perfect example of what virtual reality can bring to traditional games that you know and love. To the VR naysayers, hold this game into their face and tell them to shut it. It looks and sounds gorgeous, plays brilliantly and for just £24.99 is an absolute must-buy.
Even with its relatively short playtime Rez Infinite is a game that is a must own for PlayStation VR owners.
Rez Infinite is intoxicating and exhilarating in equal measure. Despite fundamentally being a fifteen year old game, its arrival on PlayStation VR seems to have finally completed the visionary work of Tetsuya Mizuguchi and puts you wholly within this overwhelming piece of sensory software.
The breathtaking return of a timeless masterpiece, that thanks to VR support becomes a mesmerizing lucid dream. Simply put, pure digital ecstasy: from now on, I'll never be able to play Rez in any other way.

VR finds its killer app in a 15-year-old Dreamcast game.
The death of the Dreamcast. The birth of PlayStation VR. Rez's singular orbit stays outside of a mercurial industry and remains as powerful and as relevant as it was fifteen years ago. By its architecture and through its nature, there isn't a time when Rez won't be beautiful. PlayStation VR, as it happens now, is the best way to experience it in 2016.
Still a unique game after 15 years of being released, and this version adds new modes and a level that is closer to a preview of a potential sequel. For those looking for a fast paced and challenging game, with equality quick and unique graphics and sound, this is a great game with VR as well as without it.

It’s impossible to deny the allure of Rez Infinite.
The music, the world and the gameplay combine to make for a truly enthralling experience. Area X is one of my highlights of the year and I can’t wait to see it fleshed out in a full Rez sequel. For now though, Rez Infinite is PlayStation VR’s first must-have title.
One of the merits of PlayStation VR, beyond anything, is the fact that it brought Rez's great HD re-release to PS4. If you have never had the opportunity to try this milestone of the video game, you can buy the title even without having the viewer, sure to rediscover an ageless masterpiece. However, the ability to play with the headset is more than welcome. The gaming experience gains in terms of engagement, and the addition of Area X gives us a glimpse of how current, magnetic and wonderful Rez's formula still is. The hope is that this unprecedented level is just the starting point for an experience sewn around the potential of PlayStation VR.
