About

Beat Saber is a unique VR rhythm game where your goal is to slash the beats (represented by small cubes) as they are coming at you. Every beat indicates which saber you need to use and also the direction you need to match. All the music is composed to perfectly fit the hand made levels. Our goal is to make players almost dance while cutting the cubes and avoiding obstacles. Each cut is strongly supported by great sound and visual effects to emphasize the rhythm.FeaturesUnique gameplay with a great feel - Beat Saber combines the satisfying feeling of cutting with emergent perception of rhythm. Handcrafted levels & music - All the basic levels and music in the game will be handcrafted to emphasise the music rhythm. The results are incomparable to similar games with generated content. Game accessibility - Anyone can understand basic game principles and play the game in just a few seconds.

Beat Saber reviews and comments

Early Access Review Finally, my Inner Pig Dog no longer has a Chance. I actually found a Welding "sport" That is Fun .. Even EXTREM have fun. And supplies of new Songs are provided by the enormous Number of custom Maps. All Thumbs up. Clear Recommendation Small Addendum I can't get enough of this Game thanks to the Extremely active Community which supplies the Game with new Material every Day. For that a Thank You I really play Beatsbut every Day between 30 Minutes and an Hour, and I know that I should actually take a Break for the sake of my Shoulders. But somehow I don't get that. After an even strenuous and busy Working Day, I always need my Dose of Beatsaber in the Evening. The Game in passing hugely Encourages the Eyes hand coordination. Didn't think I could have so much Fun with exercise at 48. Sport was OTHERWISE NEVER my Thing.

Early Access Review Extremely horny and unmatched in this Form. This Game demands Movement, Tact and Reaction like no other. And yet it is stocking and hugely fun. It probably depends on the Taste as always, but especially in this Game I find the Music (except on a track) perfectly successful. In the Course of Playing, you can feel better and better skills and thus also aruded high Scores. It contains 4 difficulty levels per song (when Writing the review it was ' 10 ' in number) where Expert is really a long way from Hard. So there's something for everyone. The Game definitely doesn't feel like it's lovelessly cobbled together in a matter Of days just like the well-known Audioshield. In Beat Saber, a lot of Little details were Given to thinking about ... It is already at extremely high Levels in the early access Stage, partly better than many "finished" VR games on Steam. Even in general, Beat Saber Has been one of the few, if not the only release, that has really paid off so far for 5 months in 2018. (SkyrimVR outside, is anyway just a port/a mod of a well-known Game.) Small Negative Points: I find there are inconsistencies in the different Difficulty levels, each Song on always the same Level of difficulty also plays very different times. This is also due to the different combo patterns used. The Graphics and Atmosphere are cool, but I would at least like to see an alternative Background for the 10 songs. As Far as I saw, there is only one. Here would be something towards Game "Thumper" hammerhart ... Played with the Vive. Recommendation to Vive user regarding this Game: Introve the GearVR Lenses into the Vive if you're bothered by the Glow and Godrays. With the GearVR Lenses, straight games like Beat Saber Look crystal clear clean due to the high Contrast differences and the Image is also sharp over a larger Area.

The mechanics is completely different from classic music games: here your score depends on how hard you swing each block, the perfection of timing is not so important. That disappointed and confused me. If you’re a Guitar Hero or Osu fan, better skip this game.  
I love this game since the release of the trailer. Glad to see new features, not highlighted in the preview materials, like bombs on the expert levels. In general, the game runs smooth and I just can’t stop playing it. I want more songs, I hope, they’ll be added in the finished version.
