Rez Infinite improves on perfection. The best reason to own a PlayStation VR headset.

100

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.

Lovingly remade in high definition and enhanced via optional PlayStation VR support, Rez Infinite 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.

An already amazing journey into synesthesia achieves its full potential with PS VR and Area X.

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.

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

This is the closest thing to total immersion we have come yet with VR. Sound, vision, motion in a higher symbiosis.

Still enjoyable without PlayStation VR, Rez Infinite becomes one of the most engaging experiences playable with the PS4 virtual headset. For his main and well-known campaign and its new and so enjoyable Area X mode that, we hope, is a glimpse for a possible Rez 2.

90

Rez Infinite is an excellent sensitive experience enjoyable with PS VR or in the classic way. The new Area X has all the spirit of the original cult classic game with the power of the actual hardware and let us waiting for more of that universe.

Rez: Infinite is already awesome, but the VR experience makes it so much better. Without any distractions you can see, hear and feel Rez Infinite. Amazing.

Rez Infinite is a brilliant combination of new and old. Despite originally being released in 2001, ‘Rez’ feels like it was always meant to be played with head tracking and in virtual reality. From the ease of aiming to the excitement of scrolling past its trippy dreamscapes, every part of it feels enhanced. Throw in the excellent ‘Area X,’ and players also get a look at the captivating future that is in store for the beloved title.

This is a timeless gem, an audiovisual piece of art that didn’t lose any of its fascination even after 14 years, while thanks to the VR implementation you feel closer to the action than ever before.

Hands down, the ultimate Rez version, made even more impressive and entertaining by the excellent integration of PSVR.

A timeless masterpiece, here in its best synesthetic form, thanks to PlayStation VR.

Rez, the trippy on rails shooter was a classic, but now that it is playable in Virtual Reality it is even better.

90

Playable with or without PSVR, Rez Infinite is a fantastic game that deserves a spot in your PS4 game collection regardless of whether or not you’ve played a previous version of it.

90

REZ Infinite is definitively the best videogame for PS VR. It’s not the game that will make you buy a PS VR, but if you own a PS VR, this is the game you must have.

90

Whether you’ve played the original or not, the PS4 version of Rez Infinite is a masterpiece that every owner of the Sony console should own, and with PlayStation VR now on the market, is the best way to experience it.

90

With or without PlayStation VR, Rez Infinite is an incredible revival of a classic best, but given the choice, I’d much prefer to immerse myself with the headset on my head, finding the ultimate incarnation of Rez’s synesthesia in virtual reality.

90

Sure, there’s no Trance Vibrator attachment, but being immersed entirely in Rez’s world is an almost religious experience in and of itself.

90

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.

90

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.

90

Rez has never looked more mesmerizing or been this fluid. The VR ads a new layer on the experience making it one of the most engaging and hypnotic games I have ever played in VR.

90

Rez Infinite is the best game on PlayStation VR right now. It is simply the perfect example of what virtual reality can bring to traditional games that you know and love. To the VR naysayers, hold this game into their face and tell them to shut it. It looks and sounds gorgeous, plays brilliantly and for just £24.99 is an absolute must-buy.

90

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.

90

Despite it’s short campaign–you can complete everything in a little more than an hour, if you’re skilled–Rez Infinite is the game to buy a PSVR for. It’s hypnotic and enveloping. And it’s transformative, both within itself and in the wider scheme of the experiences made possible by VR. You don’t want to sleep on Rez Infinite, because with the addition of more polished visual flair and the dreamy Area X, we have a new classic for the new generation on our hands.

88

Expensive, as almost every other PlayStation VR game is, and it is already a well-known one for those who already played it on any other platform. Rez Infinite is, as for now, the best game among all others launch titles for PS VR. The audiovisual experience is unique in a game that looks as if it was already thought to be a VR game back then, taking advantage of every aspect from stereoscopic and 360º vision.

85

Rez Infinite could be the game of the future. Destroying virusses has never been so much fun! And did we mention the VR experience? Amazingly intense!

85

Rez Infinite is a treat for the senses, and while there might not be a lot in the way of content, you’ll surely come back for more several times. The simple but addictive gameplay will draw you into a musical neon trance that you won’t want to leave, and it’s the perfect length for sharing with friends.

85

The price tag is a bit steep, yet if you want a great virtual reality experience, you should look no further.

85

Simply the best PS VR game out yet, albeit a short one.

85

Rez Infinite makes you believe in the power of VR. It’s funny that a 14-year-old game is one of the best examples of this, but it’s a game you have to try if you have a PSVR.

85

Rez Infinite keeps aging well in its gameplay mechanics. The new Area X is absolutely brilliant and show how great a VR experience can be.

85

It seems like virtual reality was always the right place for Rez, and with Infinite, there’s no need for more versions in the future.

84

Rez is an artistic shooter that mixes music and psychedelic environments. It´s a great experience which feels completely immersive thanks to PSVR.

83

Rez Infinite makes a good case for virtual reality. It’s not a game designed from the ground up for the technology, but it’s a perfect fit and really does a fantastic job of surrounding the player in its world. The blisteringly fast gameplay combined with a fantastic soundtrack and unique graphical style make Rez Infinite one of the best reasons to pick up a PSVR.

82

Even if you don’t have a PSVR, Rez Infinite is still the most complete version of an imaginative cult classic with deceptively nuanced gameplay, but if you do, it’s also an impressive glimpse into the transportive power of virtual reality.

80

Like another rhythm game Thumper, Rez Infinite showcases the power of PSVR. While many people may look at a reboot or relaunch of a game as something lazy, Rez Infinite doesn’t fall in this category. Instead, Rez Infinite proves that the PSVR can breathe new life into old classics.

80

Once you are fully immersed into the world of Rez Infinite, you immediately realize the power of VR. Unfortunately, this thrilling experience is too short and the tall price of the game – which is a remaster – could represent an obstacle for some players.

80

Played with the PlayStation VR, Rez is way more immersive, captivating and enjoyable. The new Area X shows how the formula can be modernized, and we hope this new stage to be the starting point for something bigger.

Summary

A timeless masterpiece, here in its best synesthetic form, thanks to PlayStation VR.
