Review: RIFF VR should have been the VR equivalent of Rock Band. After all, it has songs from big-name bands like Poison, Europe and KISS. But sadly when it comes to gameplay and graphics it soon falls apart. Look…I can live with bad graphics I really can because being immersed in VR is not about it looking amazing, it’s about feeling amazing to play. But sadly this game isn’t even close to being amazing to play, in fact… it’s terrible. The beats are not in tune with the music and it doesn’t offer even half of what its trailer and spill suggest it does. No, for me this game needs some serious work before I could recommend it, but it would be worth picking up if it was free or at least very close to it.
