Pixel Ripped 1995
Top Critic Average
Pixel Ripped 1995 is even better than the original and that’s saying a lot since that one was a great game in its own right. It brings even more wild moments and gameplay sequences that once again are only made possible thanks to virtual reality. It’s a perfect game to play to get lost in a world similar to one you may have grown up in or to see what it was like for the rest of us back then. This should be on every PlayStation VR owners to-buy list.
Pixel Ripped 1995 is a VR love letter to an integral part of gaming history, building on the strengths of the original as it once again blends authentic retro games with an innovative VR world. If you remember the golden days of home gaming and the thrill of waking up at Christmas to see a console shaped box under the tree, then this is the game for you to relive. If not, then there's still plenty here to enjoy without the nostalgia.
Pixel Ripped 1995 refines the original formula with better graphics, better retro games and more polished sensations... even if they feel similar to Pixel Ripped 1985. Even that doesn't prevent the game from being a huge revival full of homages to a great era in videogaming history that, while it lasts, its full of joy.

Pixel Ripped 1995 pulls off a remarkable magic trick, slamming players back in time to the gaming days of the mid-90s. With brain-twisting challenges and a solid dose of nostalgic delight, Pixel Ripped 1995 is an amazing romp through the games of yesteryear, combined with amazing modern mechanics. Highly recommended.
Amidst this weird, multi-dimensional crisis is where Pixel Ripped 1995 breaks out its most blast-processed concepts.
Pixel Ripped 1995 is chock full of clever ideas, mind-bending scenarios and very well designed gameplay sections. What goes along with that is a very well thought out VR implementation, a great control scheme and easy to understand, fun, familiar gameplay. I loved playing this quirky title, its like nothing else I have played before and I adored it.
AVORE has done the impossible here, and has taken one of the best VR experiences on the PSVR, and managed to make it even better in almost every respect. Full to the bring with nostalgia, and not resting on that simple premise to sell, Pixel Ripped 1995 races through the finishing line with tight gameplay, excellent use of the VR system, and fully developed characters framing the era perfectly with their dialogues and observations. Get it, finish it, and then wait patiently for the next jump in technology to be turned into a title as fantastic as this one. Pixel Ripped 2000 anyone?
Pixel Ripped 1995 is a must-have PSVR game, especially for gamers who grew up in the '90s as it makes for one brilliant nostalgia trip.
Pixel Ripped 1995 is out April 23rd on PC VR platforms for $19.99.
Even if you weren’t a 90’s kid, what Arvore has managed to create will still delight any gaming fan in general.
