Description: Chop It is a VR rhythm game about karate and friendship. Chop the boards. Punch the cinder blocks. Use that body to get into the rhythm and karate everything into smithereens. Turn quick. Gaze in awe as the Sensei launches himself around the Pagoda raining building materials on your head.
Included are 8 playable songs custom written for Chop It by Strange Handle AV. Import your own content and map songs manually, procedurally, or a mix of the two in the VR Mapping Station. One of the things that makes Chop It unique from other VR rhythm games is the use of true room-scale where the Sensei jumps and flies around the environment while throwing items at you that land to the beat.
Review: I went into ‘Chop It’ expecting yet another failed music/rhythm game and I am happy to report that it is nowhere near as bad as I presumed it was going to be. In fact, its a lot of fun to play! You play the role of a martial arts student and you have to “chop” anything the sensei throws at you in time with the music. The good news is most the beats seem to be in time with the music and while the songs are a little slow and there isn’t a whole lot of choice in music it does feel good to play which is essential. While I do wish it was a lot cheaper you could always wait for this to be in a sale before giving it a go which I highly suggest.
