Genres: Action, First-Person Shooter

Inspired by God-mode action movies like John Wick and Equilibrium, Pistol Whip throws you gun-first into an explosive batch of hand-crafted action scenes each set to their own breakneck soundtrack. But unlike traditional music games, Pistol Whip has no line in the sand; you have complete freedom to shoot, melee, and dodge targets to the rhythm YOU see fit. FEATURES Pair the pulse-pounding pace of an FPS with the flow-state energy of a music game in a cinematic symphony of violence. Form your rhythm and find your playstyle, from tactical to musical, then challenge your skill with friends and world leaderboards. Infiltrate a fever dream of hand-crafted scenes, from bank heists to android uprisings, each uniquely designed to music. Take it over-the-top with a variety of gameplay mods, such as Dual Wield, to enable the ultimate gun kata experience. Constant momentum and comfort-first design allows non-stop speed without the fear of motion sickness. Featuring EDM artists from Kannibalen Records, including Apashe, HVDES, and Black Tiger Sex Machine; with more to come...

PC-VR headset owners should buy. Quest owners might want to wait for a performance patch.

Pistol Whip is insanely fun, downright hectic, and excellent for parties. While the seven levels won't last very long, the soundtrack and compelling rhythmic gameplay carry this one to stratospheric heights. Embrace your gun kata, and pick this up.
