If you are going to make an Oculus Quest 2, do it well!
Definitely in this crazy season with online shopping (Black Friday-Christmas), one of the items that was undoubtedly the favorite of Soltek customers and purchased as if there was no tomorrow, was the Oculus Quest 2. And it is not for less, Facebook has consolidated its line of
1.- BEAT SABRE
Something like Dance Dance Revolution but for your hands, Beat Saber makes you feel like a rhythm ninja.
Beat Sabre features an existing library of free songs, but also features songs by popular artists such as Skrillex and Billie Eilish that are available to purchase individually or as part of a package. Also, with a little effort, you can even add your own melodies.
On a basic level, Beat Saber is relatively simple, as it allows you to cut incoming cubes in specific directions to the beat of the song. However, like most rhythm games, Beat Saber has a remarkably high skill ceiling, becoming relentless in higher difficulties.
2.- DANCE CENTER
From the same house that brought us Rock Band and Guitar Hero, Harmonix is a studio that knows how to make us look ridiculous in our living rooms while making us feel incredibly cool.
The game includes 32 songs and various mixes that unite epochs and genres from the hip-hop of the 80s to the moderna alternative. There are a dozen DLC songs available; however, the store no longer receives updates and there is currently no way to add your own, unlike Beat Saber .
Dance Central VR is by far the most active game on our list and even has a rudimentary fitness tracking feature built in that gives you a rough estimate of how many calories you’ve burned.

3.- The Climb 2
The Climb 2 also features seasonal events that rotate every few months and can generate exclusive cosmetic rewards, and while the game is not very deep, there are still enough incentives for you to keep playing throughout the year.
The Climb 2
Definitely not for acrophobics (fear of heights), The Climb 2 leverages the same engine used for the Far Cry franchise in a game focused on mountaineering, or more specifically, rock climbing. Climb 2 features 12 peaks of increasing difficulty spread over four different environments ranging from alpine mountain ranges to urban landscapes. Each ascent features multiple routes to the top and a scoring system to keep you competing against the best of the best with a world leaderboard.
The gameplay is simple and intuitive: using your hands to grab and climb is something that comes quite naturally. However, there are some wrinkles that open up as you progress through the game, forcing you to jump through the gaps and perform complicated “technical fasteners” to extend your grip on the more complicated ledges. While not exercise-oriented, playing The Climb 2 for extended periods will definitely make you sweat, or at least, some wet hands.
4.- RESIDENT EVIL 4 VR
Making the leap to virtual reality platforms has given this old game a new life.
Resident Evil 4 VR
This classic entry of the Resident Evil franchise has been republished more times than we can count, but making the leap to virtual reality platforms has given this old game a new life. This iteration keeps most of what made the input great to start with, while removing some parts that may not have aged well.
In addition to translating the action into a first-person perspective, Resident Evil 4 VR also increases the tension significantly by turning many of the actions that would be relegated to pressing a button, such as reloading, into manual efforts. It takes more than a few failed attempts before you can successfully reload without panicking.

5.- Superhot VR
Superhot VR is the best John Wick video game that is not about John Wick. Like its non-VR predecessor , Superhot VR consistently outnumbered you and outgunned you in scenarios where a single bullet can kill you, with a single twist. Time only progresses when you move. It definitely suffers from virtual reality problems where “your hands are just weapons”, but the time distortion mechanics makes the experience a little more cerebral than that of an average shooter.
Superhot VR is really a puzzle game in which bullets and the environment form the pieces. It challenges you to find creative ways out of difficult situations where you are beyond remedy. No bullets? Drop your gun. Don’t you have a gun? Start an incoming bullet in the air and throw it at the bad guys.
6.- TETRIS EFFECT: CONNECTED
This musically loaded entry into the classic block stacking game is unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced.
TETRIS EFFECT: CONNECTED
While you can definitely play Tetris Effect without VR, this musically loaded entry into the classic block stacking game is unlike anything else you’ve experienced in previous iterations. The core Tetris Effect experience remains unchanged, but Tetris Effect VR is also driven by a euphoric combination of musical rhythms and vivid colors. This means that your experience can vary greatly from intense to meditative depending on the level at which you play. The VR component does a good job of adding depth and dimension to each level and encapsulating its periphery with the sights and sounds that make Tetris Effect VR feel distinctly different from its more standard counterpart.
7.- IN DEATH: UNCHAINED
While the original In Death was made for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, Unchained is a remake made exclusively for Oculus Quest 2. This version definitely compromises the graphics a bit to suit the hardware, but it comes with some extra levels to bridge the difference.
In Death: Unchained
Put Dark Souls in a virtual reality environment and combine it with your favorite roguelike, and you’ve summed up the gameplay of In Death: Unchained . The story is a bit thin and the difficulty is absolutely brutal, but In Death: Unchained is a punishment game that makes you come back for more. While combat is limited to bows and different types of arrows, In Death: Unchained excels at making its weapons feel incredibly satisfying to shoot.

8.- REZ: INFINITE
Considered a masterpiece by some, BAFTA-nominated Rez: Infinite is a mind-blowing virtual reality experience.
Considered a masterpiece by some, BAFTA-nominated Rez: Infinite is a mind-blowing VR experience that is available on all VR platforms. This virtual reality port is a railway shooter game in the background, but the unique aesthetics, sound and music combine to transform Rez: Infinite into an experience like no other, especially when played in virtual reality.
You control Rez: Infinite primarily through head tracking and controller inputs, allowing you to simply look where you want to aim and press a button to shoot. This makes the experience feel remarkably fluid, especially when combined with the amazing techno soundtrack. The score is action-driven, as enemies launch a burst of loops and beats when destroyed.
