Pistol Whip is a nice addition to VR rhythm games with its John Wick-style action gameplay. But it gets boring sooner than you hoped.

Pistol Whip is a VR highlight with fast-paced rhythm shooting, an exciting soundtrack, and an enticingly abstract art style.

Pistol Whip is one of the most intense, immediately gratifying action experiences of 2019, in VR or out, with a skill ceiling that’s much higher than it first appears.

Pistol Whip turns our weapon into a musical instrument so we can enjoy an incredible techno OST while shooting and dodging bullets in John Wick style.

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.

There is no need to say, Pistol Whip is an effective game that puts our physical commitment to work in the most beautiful way. With its colorful and clean environments and its soundtrack well paced, it knows how to quickly embark us in its universe.

Pistol Whip is an excellent and original VR Rhythm FPS, now even more unmissable with the free 2089 DLC. Great on PC VR, but even better wireless on Oculus Quest or Quest 2.
