Rez may have been kicking around since late 2001 on the Dreamcast, but despite launching on several platforms since – including the PlayStation 2 – it finally feels at home on PlayStation VR. While you can play this modernised version of the cult classic without Sony's spiffy headset, the fact of the matter is that Rez Infinite was made for virtual reality. Honestly, it's just so good.

The game itself is a kind of synaesthesia shooter, where the beat of the music pumps through the DualShock 4, and you're tasked with targeting space crafts and all other kinds of enemies and shooting them down. All of your attacks are matched to the rhythm of the music, and when you've got the sound cranked up loud and the headset on, it's easy to forget where you are.

We've captured some gameplay for you to watch above – sorry it's not in 60 frames-per-second, that was my mistake – which should give you an idea of just how glorious this release is. But stay tuned to the site for a full review, which is unquestionably going to be high. And if you'll excuse us, we're off to play more Rez Infinite.
