The Best PlayStation VR2 games in 2023

Sony’s PlayStation VR2 is here. If you have a PS5 and can spend an extra £530 on the new VR headset and controllers, a whole new exciting world of VR awaits. But what are the best PS VR2 games you can buy? Is there a must-buy game?

Is PS VR2 worth £530?

Are some of these lesser-known titles actually the jewels in the lineup? Early on in the life of VR2 there are plenty of games to browse through, so consult the list below to make sure you buy the best PlayStation VR2 games.

The best PS VR2 games

All systems have to avoid some crap when navigating the available games, and PS VR2 is no different.

The good news is that this list of PlayStation VR2 games (by VG247) is certified 100% bangers. These games were all played on real VR2 hardware, so you can trust what we say. No games appear on this recommended list unless we have thoroughly tested them.

horizon call of the mountain

Horizon Call of the Mountain may not be the best overall game available on PS VR2, but it is currently the flagship title to play for the stunning graphics alone. That sounds a bit mean for the game itself, which is still a good example of interactivity within a virtual reality world, but the campaign is starting to drag a bit with its heavy emphasis on climbing and rather boring conversations with NPCs (which admittedly look incredible).

Gran Turismo 7 (via free update to PS5 version of GT7)

I wish Gran Turismo 7’s entire UI was designed around using VR2 headsets instead of just throwing up the big screen until you’re in a car race, but that’s about the only issue I’ve had with this great VR game. have game

To be honest, I was a little bored when GT7 was released, but playing it in VR put it back on my “cool games” list – something every game dreams of. When the free VR update dropped, I played solidly for two hours, which doesn’t sound like much. However, I haven’t done that in a game for a long time. Incredible stuff.

Resident Evil Village (Capcom, via free update to PS5 version of RE Village)

“There are no real PS VR2 games,” someone shouts at an angry mob. Have you played Resident Evil Village? This is a real game and a damn good one. Completely retooled for the VR2 experience, it follows in the footsteps of the excellent Resi 7 on the original PS4 VR headset and is absolutely top notch. It’s a free upgrade if you own the game on PS5, so there’s no excuse not to play this. It’s up there with Horizon and GT7 as the best examples of “full” games on VR2.

Note: Be aware that the cutscenes play out without direct control, so they’re a sure-fire way to turn your stomach if you’re suffering from motion sickness. You can choose to view cutscenes in 2D big picture mode if you prefer, which I definitely did.

What the hell?

The funniest game on PlayStation VR2? This award could well be attributed to the whimsical, brilliantly inventive WHAT THE BAT? go. It’s essentially a collection of mild physics-based environmental puzzles, but the twist is that your hands are bats, baseball bats.

While that sounds a little weird, it is, but it’s also hilarious and shows real movement in VR. With that in mind you need a decent space to play this, at least 2m x 2m, which is larger than you can imagine. It pays to move the coffee table and kids’ toys around to make this work.

Note: The developer has indicated that an update will be available for the game shortly that will allow the game to be played without Room Scale. This means players with less space can play What the Bat.

Tetris Effect: Connected

Tetris: The effect was brilliant on the original PS VR headset, but it’s even more impressive on VR2. The clarity, the colors, the feel – all amazing. Tetris: Effect can be played without VR, but it’s a game that you can completely lose yourself in as you immerse yourself in the VR world. PS4 game owners can upgrade to the VR2 version for $9.99. It is worth it ..

Ridiculously cool arcade action set to an incredible soundtrack. The old and the new combine to great effect in Rez Infinite. Just like Tetris: Effect, Rez Infinite benefits greatly from the improved graphics and new tactile feel in the VR2 headset, but the big change is aimed at eye-tracking targets. This takes a while to get used to, but feels like you’ve stepped into the future once you get the hang of it. The $9.99 upgrade cost to go from VR to VR2 is worth every penny.

Kayak VR: Mirage

Kayaking undoubtedly springs to mind when you think of PlayStation gaming, but this virtual kayaking experience is awesome. It has, somewhat surprisingly, some of the best graphics Sony’s VR headset/PS5 combo has to offer and puts you in the world with superb tactile feel. You really do feel like you’re in that kayak, which I’m not expecting to write, but here we are. Kayak VR: Mirage is a must-have for PS VR2.

Yes, with PS VR2 you can kayak to your heart’s content.

Moss 1 & 2 Remaster

If you’re looking for a game (or games) that offer a different approach to VR, the Moss remasters should be high on your list. In both games, you control a mouse during a third-person hack’n’slash adventure with lots of puzzles.

The VR angle is created by you being this god-like presence, looking inside the mouse and the world it is in. You peer out at the world, moving your head to get a better look at your surroundings and your controllers to move objects in the world. It’s a decent setup and makes for one of the simplest VR experiences on the system, ideal for learning about VR.

This is another game that was on the original VR headset for PS4 and is available for VR2 with a $4.99 upgrade fee. It’s totally worth the price, with improved graphics and audio, but most importantly, a brilliant feel. Of all the games I’ve played, Thumper on PS VR2 makes the best use of the headset’s tactile feel. It’s awesome and puts you straight into the rhythm action experience.

Thumper is a rhythm action game that feels great on PS VR2.

That’s your crowd of PS VR2 games so far, at least. We’ll be adding more to this list as we play more of the launch titles and games coming to the platform in the years to come. In the meantime, don’t forget to take a look at what we think are the best PS5 games, as well as the best games on PS Plus.
