    Pistol Whip on PSVR2 is nothing less than a masterpiece of sensory excess, exhilaration and expertly paced challenge. An essential PSVR2 launch title that crafts a masterful mixture of visceral excess, classic arcade score chasing, a bountiful content offering and effortless style, there's only one score that will do for Pistol Whip's PSVR2 debut and it happens to rhyme with 'ten'. Oops.

    It’s safe to say that Pistol Whip has quickly become one of our favourite PSVR 2 titles. Who doesn’t want to feel like Neo in The Matrix, dodging bullets left, right and centre? Or John Wick, spotting and dispatching enemies with a combination of shots and melee attacks? Basically, Pistol Whip allows you be Keanu Reeves: the epitome of cool. And so, for anyone picking up PSVR 2, this should be considered a must-have.

    Pistol Whip is super cool, and the best way to play it is on PSVR2. Not only do you get the most optimized experience on PSVR2 in performance, you also have a plethora of ways to play the game, with thirty tracks to enjoy. It’s a perfect pick for something both unique and familiar for VR enthusiasts picking up a PSVR2.

    Upon its PSVR launch, we found Pistol Whip to be a sublime experience, brilliantly blending rail shooter and rhythm mechanics. How does the upgraded version fare? Well, even better.

    Pistol Whip is now a VR classic. On the first PlayStation VR it was unable to shine properly, but on Quest it has long been an institution. The PlayStation VR2 version is by far the nicest to look at, the most comfortable on the eyes, with one downside: the cable. Whichever viewer you choose, with Pistol Whip you will always be on the safe side.

    Bought this game because of the positive ratings here and was not disappointed. Please do not expect a game to relax to, it is quite stressfulBought this game because of the positive ratings here and was not disappointed. Please do not expect a game to relax to, it is quite stressful shooting that many guys in such a short time but it sure is fun. It reminds me of the golden age of video arcade games where as a kid you'd spent your pocket money on those machines. Overwhelming experience, great nostalgia factor. Expand
