Synth Riders is a rhythm game that tasks you with hitting different colored notes that fly towards you according to the beat. Using the corresponding orb in your hand (and dodging obstacles) you hit a variety of note styles, such as single notes, long lines of notes, notes that need a specific orbs, and others with both orbs simultaneously.

We’re looking forward to reviewing Synth Riders, although if you’re already sold on the game, you can buy the Early Access version on Steam and the Oculus Store for PC VR now. You can also keep an eye on the Quest version here.

Synth Riders supports Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index, and Windows VR headsets.

    Anyone know if it’s any good?

      Steam says 95% positive reviews so I guess not that bad

        Interesting. I tend to love active rhythm games like Rock Band or Beat Saber, but while I appreciate more game-y rhythm games like Thumper or Audio Surf, I don’t have nearly as much fun.

      its really good, fun and simple on lower settings and difficult and engaging on the higher settings. best of all, the soundtrack beats any other rhythm game imo!!

  • Jarilo

    Beat Saber, Audica, and soon Pistol Whip. I’m good, I only need so many of these damn music games.

    • Yah, but… is Pistol Whip really a music game? There’s music, and you can get a bonus for shooting on the beat… but… it’s just a shooting galley.

    When are we going to get VR DDR? or, DDVR, to be confusing.

    Hate these kind of games. I only own beat saber cause my wife wanted it. It’d be cool if someone made a game where you can learn to play the drums, piano, or some sort of instrument, not just do pointless movements. Rather play a real game if that’s the case, one with multiplayer support.
