SUPERHOT is a name that many gamers are likely familiar with at this point. Although it has been a highly successful title, across multiple platforms, this game has humble roots. In fact it was first created during the 2013 7DFPS (7 Day FPS Challenge) Game Jam. After that it went on to become a web browser game in September of that year but didn’t appear in the form people know it today until its Windows release on February 2016.
Since those days, SUPERHOT has matured and enjoys a platform-agnostic existence across the Xbox, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Mac OS X, and even Linux. VR support came in the form of SUPERHOT VR which is available on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR. There’s even a standalone expansion serving as a roguelike spin-off called SUPERHOT Mind, Control, Delete.
The newest version of this popular experimental shooter game recently released for the Oculus Quest, which itself has taken the gaming world by storm as it’s the first VR headset to not require a PC / Mobile device. In this review we will evaluate how the experience translates on a VR headset which houses its own screen, processor, RAM, etc. to find out just how premium it feels.
