10 Great Room Scale Virtual Reality Titles

Beat Saber

Beat Saber has always had players moving around quite a bit, and ducking under barriers, but an update last year made it a showcase as one of the best room scale VR games. Besides the regular levels, which players can wield dual katana beams and slice beats in, there are also 360-degree levels that will have players moving all over the place as they slice beats that come in every direction. A lot of the past songs work with this mode, and so does plenty of the DLC that features rock bands such as Panic! at the Disco, Imagine Dragons, and Green Day.

 

Beat Saber has been given a fitness rating comparable to tennis by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise. Beat Saber was awarded our VR Fitness Game of the Year in 2018 and won our Best Arm Workout VR Fitness Game of the Year in 2019. It is currently available on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, and Oculus Quest for $29.99.

Blade and Sorcery has become a surprising workout favorite for many virtual reality headset owners. This is due to the rewarding combat and that it allows players to take full advantage of room scale. The arm workout will have players avoiding hits by moving and jumping around while slicing up foes with their own weaponry. You’ll even get to throw objects at your opponents. Those wanting to take their workout to the next level will want to pick up a weight vest.

Based upon the critically acclaimed “Rocky” sequel series, Creed: Rise to Glory is also a great room scale VR game as well as one of the most intense workouts you’ll find on this list. The boxing title rewards players for moving around, just like actual boxing, and dodging punches is key if you want to be successful. This upper body workout will have you feeling just like Adonis Creed by the time you finish its campaign.

Holopoint was one of the first great examples of how room scale titles enhance the experience of virtual reality. This archery title has the player regularly moving around as they take on waves of enemy ninjas. Even after being out for several years, this is still a great arm workout and one that will test your endurance. We also recommend the original over its sequel Holopoint: Chronicle.

 

Holopoint is available now on Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift for $14.99. It has been given a fitness rating comparable to tennis by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise.

 

Path of the Warrior

Twisted Pixel’s recently released beat ’em up isn’t just a love letter to brawlers but one of the best room scale VR games as well. While it has retro origins the like of Double Dragon and Final Fight, Path of the Warrior feels fresh as being in virtual reality adds a lot of depth (literally and figuratively) to the genre. Players get to move around since enemies come from every angle and it winds up being quite the cardio session for your arms as you knock out foes.

 

Path of the Warrior is available now on the Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest for $19.99.

 

Pistol Whip

Pistol Whip has quickly become a virtual reality fitness game that everyone should own. This rhythmic shooter provides an enjoyable power fantasy out of John Wick as players take on areas filled with enemies. Dodging bullets is a key component and that’s where the room scale really shines. Similar to Superhot, players will be moving all over their rooms in order to avoid taking damage and the frantic action winds up being a great workout.

Another one of the best room scale VR games, Racket Nx is a virtual sport that blends the Atari classic Breakout with racquetball.

There’s online multiplayer and it winds up being fun no matter how you play, with others or alone.

If you’re looking for one of then best multiplayer VR fitness games, then you can’t do much better than Sparc. The unique title combines the classic arcade hit Discs of Tron with the real sport of dodgeball as players attempt to deflect a ball into the other player’s goal. It’s a ton of fun, and while the multiplayer servers aren’t packed, the small community is loyal and welcoming to new players. Longer matches can be quite the physical strain, so your endurance will likely get tested in this room scale standout.

While it can be played standing in a relatively small area without too much restriction, Superhot VR is the most fun when you’ve got plenty of space to move around. While the unique shooter wasn’t designed with helping players burn calories in mind, it has wound up being one of the best low impact workouts. The first-person shooter has a core gimmick of time moving only when the player does. Gamers will wind up using their entire body as they attempt to dodge bullets and with room scale, players can get down on the ground and avoid gunfire in some spectacular ways. This innovative shooter will get you to fully use your environment and each level is more of a puzzle than a test of reaction speed.

 

Superhot VR has a fitness rating comparable to walking by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise. It won our Best VR Shooting Fitness Game of the Year in 2017 and is currently available on the Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, and Oculus Quest for $24.99.

 

The Thrill of the Fight

The Thrill of the Fight is one of the most fulfilling and best room scale VR games due to how realistic its simulation of boxing is. Players will have to learn the actual technique that is the base of the sweet science rather than just swinging around their arms for some arcade action. The boxing title will reward players that correctly move in and out of space as having an effective jab and using proper technique will help you succeed in the ring. Thanks to room scale, you’ll be able to truly float like a butterfly and sting like a bee in this single-player classic.

 

The Thrill of the Fight has been given a fitness rating comparable to rowing by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise. It won our Best VR Sport SIM Fitness Game of the Year in 2017 and our Best Boxing VR Fitness Game of the Year in 2019.
