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 takes 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.
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.
I don't know how this series keeps holding on, but I'm glad it does. Initially debuting on a Sega platform, it jumped ship to Microsoft, and now, Sony. I don't really care who gets it next, I just want more Rez.
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.

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.
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.
With the addition of VR and its off-rails Area X, Rez Infinite is a new classic for the current generation.
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.
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.
