I still think it’s an excellent vanilla experience with the possibility to modify and make it as difficult as you might want. So, thrillseekers, what’s your favorite track?" - VR Fitness Insider "Had a blast playing this game. Great music and great visuals along with enough challenge to keep it interesting." - Mad_Hatter569 "As soon as I launched this game I was in love with it. I adore everything to do with Synthwave/Retrowave/Outrun and everything about this game is exactly that. The moment you launch it up to the main menu and load into a song captures the style perfectly." - Hime Best Boy PLAYERS IN ACTION: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrUQHC-8D6Y&t=10s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQs5XNqRPsg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQtU4nQ4t7c

Synth Rider's 80's neon wave aesthetics and incredible soundtrack combine with simple but challenging mechanics to create one of the most entertaining and engaging VR games I've played in quite a while. Come for the fresh beats, stay for the great workout.

Put simply, Synth Riders stands proudly among the best rhythm games VR has to offer. It takes the formula that so many have emulated and innovates upon it in meaningful ways. A rocking soundtrack, wealth of content, and appealing aesthetics make Synth Riders an incredibly easy game to recommend, even for those that aren't typically into rhythm games.

Synth Riders isn't worse nor is it better than Beat Saber. It's its own VR rhythm beast that will appeal to a different kind of audience. If you can't resist some good retro-inspired, electro music and a Tron-esque neon aesthetic - this is definitely a game for you. You'll most certainly have plenty of fun and could even lose a pound or two in the process.

Available on pretty much all of the virtual reality headsets, there is not really any excuse not to pick up this addictive and exhilarating rhythm game. Polished now to a truly premium product, it stands proud alongside other competitors in the genre, and is a compelling opportunity to lift up that headset and go for a dance. The shipped tracks combine a diverse and perfectly curated blend of synth and electronic music (with a bit of rock thrown in there) from the likes of Parov Stelar and Jamie Berry. A game for fitness, a game for fun, Synth Riders is worth picking up for any VR owner.
