If you’re tired of playing Beat Saber and are looking for an MR workout experience, then OhShape has got you covered!
It is a fantastic rhythm workout game where you gotta dodge, punch, jump or squat to avoid walls and obstacles.
The game features custom song support, cross-platform and a party mode where you can compete with your friends and family!
Just don’t forget to put our headphones on for complete immerson.
8. Audio Trip
Another amazing VR game that I’m head over heels for is Audio Trip. In my opinion, it is one of the most underrated games that more people need to play.
The game features licensed music from popular artists such as Skrillex, Zedd, Lady Gaga, and more, ensuring an exciting and diverse soundtrack.
You can compete with players worldwide on the cross-platform global leaderboards or challenge your friends in Party mode.
The music catalogue might be a little short but it still is a fantastic and engaging fitness experience.
7. Smash Drums
Next, we have Smash Drums VR! Similar to Ragnarock but what sets this game apart is the different genres of music and the spectacular environments and effects it features.
Smash drums have more of a “Streamline-music” than Ragnarock and it also features a realistic mode in which you have to hit the drums slightly or with full force.
Personally, I’m a fan of barbarian mode in which you just hit the drums and cymbals with full force.
Smash Drums can make your dream of becoming a DRUMMER come true. It’s a little difficult to play but insanely rewarding to master. And the drumstick tap is super sexy!
6. Dance Central
Dance Central is a follow-the-leader full-body dancing VR game. It’s simply dance but in VR!
The game features a music library of 32 songs, and each song has a unique choreography.
It also has a multiplayer mode that works as a “try to beat my high score” challenge that you/kids can play with your friends.
I think this could be a spectacular party game too, with everyone taking turns and showing off their dance moves!
So get ready to learn tons of moves, groove to the beats, and have an amazing time dancing in the virtual world of Dance Central!
Ragnarok is a Viking-inspired rhythm VR game in which you play as captain and with your two hammers, you have to hit the incoming runes in sync with the epic Viking music.
You would almost forget you’re banging on drums and imagine yourself as the sweaty drummer on one of those rock bands in the Viking world!
So, if you are looking for a VR music game with a strong identity, music in perfect harmony with this Viking world and an exhilarating multiplayer mode then Buy Ragnaock now!
I’d recommend buying these grips so you don’t throw the controllers away while banging the drums.
Get ready to break a sweat and punch your way to fitness with FitXR! The VR rhythm workout game takes your cardio routines to the next level!
As you stand in one spot, the music pumps, and targets start coming at you.
Each target is colour-coordinated to your gloves, to succeed, you need to master jabs, hooks, and uppercuts while dodging walls.
With a vast selection of over a hundred perfectly suited songs, you’ll never get bored.
Just a heads-up: FitXR operates on a subscription model, which some VR players aren’t fans of (hence the mixed rating on the Meta Store).
3. Synth Riders VR
In Synth Riders, you’ll catch notes, ride rails, and gracefully dodge obstacles, all while grooving to the rhythm. It’s like when freestyle dancing meets a heart-pumping workout, and let me tell you, it’s exhilarating.
With over 58 included tracks, Synth Riders offers an extensive selection of music to keep you grooving and it goes above and beyond with DLCs that expand the game even further.
These DLCs introduce visually stunning experiences, extra stages, and an ever-growing library of songs from popular artists like Gorillaz, Bruno Mars, Muse, and many more.
Synth Riders is a must-try for anyone seeking a thrilling and engaging VR fitness experience.
2. Pistol Whip VR
Ladies and gentlemen, get ready because it’s time for the second-best VR Rhythm game on the market: Pistol Whip!
Pistol Whip is not your ordinary VR Rhythm shooter; it’s a mind-bending, heart-pounding physical FPS game. Imagine being John Wick in VR, dodging bullets, and taking down enemies with style.
The combination of intense gunplay, an amazing song collection, and the influence of games like Super HOT and Beat Saber makes Pistol Whip a game that’s in a league of its own.
It’s the ultimate fusion of gun-fu and rhythm!

It’s like dancing with lightsabers but with an intense cardio twist!
With each swipe and slice, you’ll find yourself engaged in a full-body movement that gets your heart racing and those calories burning.
