This musical shooter is one of the best VR games ever released and should be owned by everyone with a PSVR headset. Every once in a while a video game comes along that can be described as almost timeless. Rez was one of those games. Fifteen years after the original's release, Rez Infinite has a few new bells and whistles. First there's the 1080p full high-definition visual makeover. The original Rez managed to work wonders with wireframes and polygons, but Rez Infinite cranks the polish and colors to eleven. Shapes and textures flow together, and the upgraded 3D audio, with that classic Rez beat and electronic feel, gives you a thumping mind trip that somehow manages to be equal parts Zen garden and roller coaster.

Rez Infinite is, on its own, a fantastic revisit and update to a cult classic game, but when played on the PlayStation VR, it's a trip to a whole other world. The original game always did its best to try to convey that feeling of diving into a computer-generated world. When you slip on that VR headset, though, Rez Infinite makes you feel like you're truly plugged into a different reality. It's one thing to move an avatar around on a screen but another thing altogether when you're actually that avatar. You're surrounded by lights, sounds, and sensations that redefine immersion. It's no exaggeration to say that Rez Infinite is one of the best arguments for VR gaming and one of the best reasons for VR to exist.
