1. Horizon Call of the Mountain

The premiere PSVR 2 launch title, Horizon Call of the Mountain is a fantastic immersive VR experience that puts you into the Horizon world like never before. With deadly machines to fight and a towering mountain to climb, you will experience many of the PSVR 2’s new features while you play.

The narrative is a little dull in places – especially if you’re not a Horizon fan – but the views on offer as you climb higher and higher are worth every single penny. You can read our Horizon Call of the Mountain review right here.

You can also find out more about the game’s offerings via our Call of the Mountain walkthrough.

2. Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village is a fantastic game, but its PSVR 2 mode brings a new level of terror as you are exploring Lady Dimitrescu’s castle and the surrounding area. With new systems and combat options offered in VR, there’s nothing quite as heart-pounding as running away from vampires and werewolves while trying to save your daughter.

Full of scares and offering a great new selection of environments for the series, you shouldn’t skip out on Resident Evil Village for PSVR 2. Although, maybe bring a spare pair of underwear for when you tackle House Beneviento – it’s one of the best horror games for a reason.

3. Tetris Effect Connected

What else is there to say about Tetris Effect Connected at this point? The remastered version of the masterful take on the classic game brings a host of new modes and gameplay options to the already-packed puzzle game.

The addition of multiplayer, and the gorgeous visuals in PSVR 2 mean that Tetris Effect Connected is the best it has ever been. Whether you are new to Tetris Effect or have been playing for years, you would be silly to skip it on PSVR 2.

4. Before Your Eyes

You know Before Your Eyes is good because it won countless awards on PC. Now carefully remade for PSVR 2, this indie darling is back and ready to make you feel the raw emotion of its story.

As our Before Your Eyes PSVR 2 review explains, you’ll need to interact with the memories of the recently deceased Benjamin Brynn as he journeys through the afterlife. His memories span his early years right the way through to his unfortunate demise and every single one of them holds the key to the answers you seek.

Except, Before Your Eyes isn’t an easy action-adventure; it’s a test of your might. Blinking is the only way you can interact with the game and that’ll either move you forward in time or help you interact with a memory in some shape or form.

It’s a different experience to everything else on this list and it helps showcase the PSVR 2’s eye-tracking technology.

5. No Man’s Sky

There are few games that have had a redemption arc quite like No Man’s Sky. Despite being a technical marvel with its procedurally-generated planets, it launched in 2016 with basically zero content and many of the features it was meant to have weren’t in the game. Fast-forward to today, and you have a popular, thriving game with dedicated players and regular content updates.

This masterpiece is also fully playable in virtual reality thanks to PSVR 2, and while it wasn’t initially designed with VR in mind, it’s just such a natural fit. Exploring planets, flying ships, and building bases never felt so good.

6. Pavlov VR

As “one of the most realistic shooters on the market” our Pavlov VR review for PSVR 2 goes over just how impressive the FPS is. With a suite of weapons, modes, and maps, the game is packed full of content that you can play with PC players, creating a great unified VR experience.

Pavlov VR was one of the first fully-fledged shooters on the PSVR 2 headset, and it’ll take some topping. With its impressive multiplayer action, tight gunplay, and stellar visuals, any fan of the genre should really dive in. Plus it has some great compatibility with Sony’s new headset and the features that come with it.

7. Moss

Moss was one of the most heartfelt and sweet journeys on PSVR and it returns on PSVR 2 in remastered form. With updated visuals and enhanced features, Moss will no doubt warm your heart on PSVR2 as you seek to save Quill and help him on his journey.

While it isn’t quite as modern as its sequel, which you can read about below, it is still one of the best adventure experiences you can have in VR. It’s also a great title for kids, a rarity when it comes to the top PSVR 2 games.

8. Moss: Book II

Following up on the original, Moss Book II is just as heart-warming as the first game. While it doesn’t quite have the same novelty as the first game does, Quill’s second adventure is just as fun in VR.

So if you or your family are keen to find a game everyone can enjoy in VR with the PSVR 2, Moss: Book 2 is a great choice. But, even if you are playing solo, Moss: Book 2 is still a wonderful adventure.

9. Pistol Whip

Pistol Whip is one of the most kinetic, thrilling, and enjoyable VR experiences ever made. The intensity of firing and shooting enemies as music blares from every direction is like no other. After years of updates, the game has constantly involved, and its PSVR 2 version is its best form yet.

Playing Pistol Whip is unlike anything else and the feeling you will get will reverberate around your whole body. It will also make you sweat quite a bit as well. When it comes to stylized VR shooters, there isn’t much that tops Pistol Whip.

10. The Last Clockwinder

This is absolutely one of the best puzzle games in VR. The Last Clockwinder was received extremely well on PC back in 2022, and its move across to PSVR 2 means PS5 players can enjoy the action too. Your goal is to repair an ancient clock tower built into a magnificent and grand tree. Using a pair of special gloves anything you touch can be turned into a looping clockwork automaton and you will use them to get the clocktower working again.

Watching your work and efforts pay off as these automatons do all the work at once is a sight to behold and The Last Clockwinder will challenge you but also grip you as you tackle its puzzles.

11. Beat Saber

If you asked a random gamer to name a virtual reality game, there’s a very high likelihood they’ll say ‘Beat Saber’. This iconic and incredibly popular game was a hit on the original PSVR and pretty much every other headset too. However, it has an upgraded version that takes full advantage of the PSVR 2’s extra grunt.

Blending the lightsaber combat of Star Wars with a rhythm game, it’s almost impossible not to enjoy Beat Saber. It’s had hundreds of songs added to it over the years, including collections of tracks from massive artists such as Queen, Skrillex, Linkin Park, Billie Eilish, and many more.

This is a VR game that will also give you a good workout. While most on this list value immersion over physicality, Beat Saber focuses on both. Download some great songs, get lost in the action, and burn some calories at the same time. It’s the perfect combo.

12. Rez Infinite

Rez Infinite is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A kaleidoscope of colours, visuals, lasers, and music, all come together to create a fascinating and addicting game from Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the mind that went on to create Tetris Effect.

You would be mistaken to overlook Rez Infinite given the original version of Rez was released all the way back in 2001. But, it still holds up today and will floor anyone who plays it for the first time.

13. Thumper

Another music-focused PSVR 2 game is the brilliant Thumper. Like other entries on this list, rhythm is the key to Thumper. It is essentially a frustratingly difficult but totally addictive rollercoaster where you strike bumpers and hit certain parts of the track in time with the beat. As well as standard levels to surf, there are boss battles too, seeing you face off against stunning enemies.

Thumper was great on PSVR, but on PSVR 2 the new haptic feedback and enhanced visuals mean the game lights up your retinas in an entirely new way and immerses you like never before.

14. Kayak VR

You probably didn’t expect to see a game about kayaking on our list, but hear us out. Kayak VR is a beautifully immersive simulator that will take you and your kayak to various rivers and small bodies of water all over the world.

Not only is it easy to lose yourself in the game’s realistic visuals, but it also makes for a mean upper body workout as you continuously paddle away using the PSVR 2’s Sense controllers. Of course, if you’d rather just chill and take in the views then slow down the pace and vibe away as you cruise through the water.

15. Until You Fall

Until You Fall is undoubtedly one of the coolest games on this list. This synthwave-infused hack’n’slash roguelite will challenge you to fight your way through a neon-drenched world with plenty of medieval flair. It sounds awesome, we know.

Not only will you have to contest with all sorts of spectral beasties in each area, but Until You Fall is also packing its fair share of environmental hazards and other… surprises. As a roguelite, the game also packs plenty of meta-progression (unlike roguelike games), meaning you’ll gradually get stronger with each run. Though you may have a tough time at the start, soon all will fall beneath your might.

16. Arizona Sunshine 2

PSVR 2 was made for getting up close and personal with the undead – okay, maybe not thaaaaaat close. Nonetheless, if you’re after a zombie-slaying experience with tons of character (and a dog!) then Arizona Sunshine 2 is the perfect game for you.

Whether you’re playing solo, or take advantage of its co-op game capabilities and play with pals, Arizona Sunshine 2 will treat you not only to a fully cinematic campaign, but also an endless horde mode that can be enjoyed with up to three other players. Did we mention there’s a dog?

Best PSVR 2 games: Synapse key art

17. Synapse

This frenetic, high-octane roguelike shooter made a huge splash when it launched and continues to be one of the best PSVR 2 games right now. If you’ve ever wanted a great shooter with telekinetic powers like you are Jesse from Remedy’s Control game, then Synapse may be a purchase you need to make.

Our Synapse review called it a “compelling addition to the world of VR shooters”, noting that it had “plenty of appetizing gameplay and intriguing monochromatic world-building.” This is a game you won’t want to miss.

PSVR 2 Best Games: A player can be seen racing

18. Gran Turismo 7

Our Gran Turismo 7 review details why it is a fantastic racing game that reaches new heights for the storied series. But, with PSVR 2 support, you can experience things from a new perspective.

PSVR 2 lets you fully immerse yourself in one of the best racing games ever made to make for a truly unforgettable experience. GT7’s lifelike graphics shine once the headset is on, as you get to look around at every button, dial, and design feature in each car’s immaculate interior. When out on track, the sensation of speed is incredible, and you’ll need to physically look around to check your mirrors, nail apexes, and react to mistakes from rival racers.

With that, you have some of the best experiences money can be with Sony’s pricey new headset. Whether you are looking for a great action game, a frenetic and blood-pumping rhythm game, or a heartfelt, emotional journey, you can count all of these experiences as some of the best PS5 games.

If you are looking for even more on top of the best PSVR 2 games, then take a look at some of the PS Plus Extra and Premium games with VR support you may be able to snag. Our list of new PS5 games will also include any exciting-looking PSVR 2 titles that are on the horizon.
