Lovingly remade in high definition and enhanced via optional PlayStation VR support, Rez Infinite crystallises, polishes and preserves Rez's legacy, making it an essential purchase for PSVR adopters and standard PS4 owners alike. The untethered 3D-cyberspace of Area X presents a tantalising vision of the IP's potential future and adds an extra layer to what is undoubtedly the definitive edition of Mizuguchi's masterpiece.
GamesRadar (Oct 12, 2016)
If you ever plan on owning Sony's VR headset, Rez Infinite is a must-buy. Whether you're playing this invigorating rhythm shooter for the first time, or revisiting its wonders while preparing your mind and body for Area X, Rez is and always will be a game unlike any other.
Digital Chumps (Oct 13, 2016)
The death of the Dreamcast. The birth of PlayStation VR. Rez's singular orbit stays outside of a mercurial industry and remains as powerful and as relevant as it was fifteen years ago. By its architecture and through its nature, there isn't a time when Rez won't be beautiful. PlayStation VR, as it happens now, is the best way to experience it in 2016.
IGN Italia (Oct 14, 2016)
Rez Infinite è la dimostrazione tangibile di quanto fosse all'avanguardia la cara, vecchia SEGA: sono passati quindici anni dal lancio di un videogame che ha fatto la storia, eppure anche nel 2016 il visionario shooter sensoriale di Tetsuya Mizuguchi risulta attuale e incantevole come non mai. Senza mezzi termini, la compatibilità con PlayStation VR eleva l'esperienza a un livello ulteriore, alzando l'asticella e spingendo se possibile ancora più avanti un'opera che oggi, grazie alla realtà virtuale, sembra davvero provenire dal futuro: è straordinario vivere un'emozione del genere in prima persona e poter dire "io c'ero", questo è un momento indimenticabile per il videogioco in senso lato. Game changer Signore e Signori, provare per credere. Ammaliante e totalmente imperdibile.
Destructoid (Oct 12, 2016)
Forged by the idea of "seeing sounds," series creator Mizuguchi and his team crafted something really special, and after showing it to my wife, who had never tried Rez before, she noted that it was unlike anything she's ever played. Part of the allure is that this time it's not quite on-rails, as each area is a small open arena of sorts, and there's a new boost button at your disposal to move around. It's a great conversation starter, and for the dedicated few, there's your standard score attack, boss rush, and extra ancillary modes to grind away at. I don't know how this series keeps holding on, but I'm glad it does. Initially debuting on a Sega platform, it jumped ship to Microsoft, and now, Sony. I don't really care who gets it next, I just want more Rez.
God is a Geek (Oct 12, 2016)
Rez Infinite is a great collection of old and new, giving you the same great original with better resolution and sharper visuals. There’s a score attack mode unlocked by completing the different areas, but it’s Area X that makes it for me. The music is amazing, the fluidity of movement is stunning and playing every area feels massively differently from the last. I can’t praise this iteration of Rez enough, and even over a decade since its release, Tetsuya Mizuguchi still manages to evolve the core elements that made it great in the first place.
MAN!AC (Oct 24, 2016)
Fantastischer Rail-Shooter mit grandioser Aufmachung und dank neuem Level und VR-Modus besser als je zuvor.
Boobs and Bullets (Jan 25, 2017)
Aber es ist Rez! Rez ist und bleibt ein Meisterwerk und es wurde sinnvoll erweitert – wenn auch nur ein bisschen. Dafür vergebe ich 9/10 nach Zärtlichkeit schmeckende Bassnoten (Synästhesie, get it?)
Hardcore Gamer Magazine (Oct 16, 2016)
It’s impossible to deny the allure of Rez Infinite. Those who were previously fans are set to have a sublime experience within the PSVR headset. Sure, there’s no Trance Vibrator attachment, but being immersed entirely in Rez’s world is an almost religious experience in and of itself. Anyone brand new to the game is still likely to enjoy their time thanks to the resplendent visuals and magnificent soundtrack. Gameplay was never too difficult, but now it’s even easier to keep pace with swarms of enemies thanks to motion-controlled targeting in the VR edition. Rez Infinite stands as one of the best games of the PSVR launch lineup and absolutely deserves a spot in your PS4 library.
4Players.de (Oct 17, 2016)
Rez ist auch in seiner aktuellen VR-Fassung Gänsehaut pur! Ein zeitloses audiovisuelles Kunstwerk, das oft kopiert, in seiner Stilsicherheit aber auch nach 14 Jahren nicht erreicht wurde. Dank der VR-Einbindung fühlte ich mich noch intensiver ins Geschehen versetzt. Das intuitive und präzise Zielen per Kopftracking trägt ebenfalls viel zur Immersion bei und macht die bunt blitzende Reise auch für Veteranen interessant, die das Spiel bereits Dutzende Male beendet haben. Die VR-Umsetzung bringt kleine Macken wie eine manchmal überfordernde Regie, eine bassarme Abmischung (wie kann man nur?!) oder eine enttäuschende (optionale) Move-Einbindung mit sich. Doch solche Kleinigkeiten sind schnell vergessen, wenn ich erst einmal mit einem breiten Grinsen durch den Cyberspace rausche und nur mit der Kraft meiner Gedanken – pardon – Kopfbewegungen massenhaft Cyber-Mollusken in ein glitzerndes Feuerwerk verwandle.

Rez Infinite is a must-have game for anyone with a PSVR, but even if you don’t it is still the best way to experience a beloved classic title. The unique gameplay found in Rez Infinite is enhanced by the incredible art style, which is something that you don’t see in recently released games.
GameSpot (Oct 12, 2016)
Despite it's short campaign--you can complete everything in a little more than an hour, if you're skilled--Rez Infinite is the game to buy a PSVR for. It's hypnotic and enveloping. And it's transformative, both within itself and in the wider scheme of the experiences made possible by VR. You don't want to sleep on Rez Infinite, because with the addition of more polished visual flair and the dreamy Area X, we have a new classic for the new generation on our hands.
Trusted Reviews (Oct 13, 2016)
Rez Infinite is the best game on PlayStation VR right now. It is simply the perfect example of what virtual reality can bring to traditional games that you know and love. To the VR naysayers, hold this game into their face and tell them to shut it. It looks and sounds gorgeous, plays brilliantly and for just £24.99 is an absolute must-buy.
TheSixthAxis (Oct 13, 2016)
To say that Rez is perfectly at home in VR would be a huge understatement. This looks, and feels, like an experience tailored solely to the format, and there’s no hint of the game’s underlying age. It certainly proves just how ahead of its time Rez was, and despite all of its previous plaudits, it’s incredible that fifteen years later it’s been fully realised. It is the closest that I have thus far felt to being in Tron, and the world is so solidly expressed that immersion is breathtakingly and heart-poundingly intense. Rez Infinite is intoxicating and exhilarating in equal measure. Despite fundamentally being a fifteen year old game, its arrival on PlayStation VR seems to have finally completed the visionary work of Tetsuya Mizuguchi and puts you wholly within this overwhelming piece of sensory software.
CGMagazine / Comics and Gaming Magazine (Oct 13, 2016)
Even with its relatively short playtime Rez Infinite is a game that is a must own for PlayStation VR owners, or people who just love this sort of experience. Rez has never looked more mesmerizing or been this fluid. The VR ads a new layer on the experience making it one of the most engaging and hypnotic games I have ever played in VR. Rez Infinite is a remake of a classic title, and managed to reinvigorate the franchise in ways I did not think possible. If you skip out on Rez Infinite, you are doing yourself a disservice. Go pick up this game and experience why Rez is a classic for this generation.
Metro.co.uk (Oct 12, 2016)
Timeless gameplay, visuals and music come together in one of the best shoot ‘em-ups of all time; with the new level and VR options only adding to the immersion.
Push Square (Oct 13, 2016)
Magnificent many years after its original release, Rez Infinite finally feels at home on PlayStation VR – and virtual reality has got its first killer app. A sensational sensory overload, this sublime shooter may be short-lived, but you'll be hard pushed to find an experience more deserving of your attention this year.
Jeuxvideo.com (Nov 28, 2016)
Incompris à l'époque, Rez était véritablement en avance sur son temps. Avec la réalité virtuelle, le jeu de United Game Artists démontre que les expériences d'hier peuvent être adaptées avec les technologies du moment. Fun, immersif et non avare en nouveautés, Rez Infinite est un titre génial ! La Zone X est assurément l'un des moments les plus exaltants et renversants que l'on ait pu vivre avec le PlayStation VR ! Même son thème, créé par le duo Hydelic, parvient à se mettre au diapason de la formidable B.O du jeu de base. Comme on pouvait s'y attendre, Rez Infinite fait un sans-faute et se place parmi les meilleurs jeux du support. Maintenant que Tetsuya Mizuguchi est convaincu du potentiel de la réalité virtuelle, il n'y a plus qu'à attendre la suite !
3D Juegos (Oct 13, 2016)
Puede que sea la tercera vez que Rez llega a nuestras consolas, pero esta vez es la más justificada de todas, pues la realidad virtual es prácticamente el estado natural de la obra. Además, Infinite aporta novedades interesantes que, junto a lo que supone jugar en VR lo catapulta como uno de los títulos más recomendables de su catálogo inicial.
Multiplayer.it (Oct, 2016)
Rez Infinite ha il pregio di poter essere giocato sia col solo pad, sia con PlayStation VR, con un gameplay che resiste al passaggio degli anni e propone il solito grande coinvolgimento grazie alla commistione col comparto grafico e quello musicale. L'Area X è una piacevole aggiunta che rinnova tutte le componenti elencate qui sopra e in modalità VR diventa un'esperienza così coinvolgente da essere una tra le migliori disponibili per il visore di realtà virtuale prodotto da Sony. E proprio perché l'appetito vien mangiando, a frenare gli entusiasmi arriva una durata complessiva molto limitata sia della modalità classica che dell'Area X: un vero peccato, perché la qualità del pacchetto proposto è davvero elevata e ne vorremmo di più.
Vandal Online (Oct 13, 2016)
Es realmente curioso lo de Rez Infinite, un juego con más de 14 años que en la realidad virtual se siente como algo totalmente vigente y nuevo, y cualquiera podría pensar que se diseñó con ella en mente. Como decíamos al principio del texto, hemos tenido nuestros más y menos estos primeros días con PlayStation VR, pero este juego te reconcilia con la tecnología, y te demuestra que se pueden vivir experiencias de una intensidad y conexión entre lo jugable, lo visual y sonoro, que quizás de otra manera no sería posible alcanzar. Imprescindible probarlo si tienes PS VR, sobre todo el nuevo Area X, de los más espectacular que hemos vivido nunca en la realidad virtual.
IGN (Oct 12, 2016)
Even if you don’t have a PSVR, Rez Infinite is still the most complete version of an imaginative cult classic with deceptively nuanced gameplay. But if you do, it’s also an impressive glimpse into the transportive power of virtual reality.
bemanistyle (Oct 12, 2016)
The incredible gameplay, audio and visuals Enhance Games created is simply amazing for a launch PlayStation VR title, very rare in some cases. The VR option only adding to the immersion to this on-rails shooter is one of the best reasons to pick up a PlayStation VR unit. Although the game is very short, new content and unlockables by replaying areas make great use of your time.
Saudi Gamer (Oct 15, 2016)
لعبة فريدة من نوعها حتى بعد ١٥ سنة من نزولها، والنسخة هذه تضيف أطواراً جديدة و مرحلة جديدة يمكن اعتبارها مقدمة لجزء ثاني. لمن يبحث عن لعبة سريعة و ذات تحدي مع طابع رسومي و صوتي سريعين و مميزين فهي لعبة ممتازة، سواء مع أو بدون الواقع الافتراضي.
UploadVR (Oct 12, 2016)
Rez considers the limitations some other other launch titles have tried to skirt over and provides a VR experience that just works. It’s a simple game that relies on its minimalist style to provide a thoroughly beautiful world to just fly inside of. If there’s a downside here, it’s that past the gorgeous presentation, it’s still just a straightforward targeting game. That’s not an issue for me though, because the trip is well worth it.
Eurogamer.net (UK) (Oct 14, 2016)
When all that comes together in Rez's standout moments - the chittering dance as you're swarmed during the boss fight at the end of Area 3, the stuttering swell of strings that brings Adam Freeland's Fear to brilliant life as you rush up from the oceans of Area 5 - it's beyond sublime. Back when it was released, there were some complaints that the 60 minutes it takes to see through Rez constituted poor value for money. 15 years on, I think they're enough to justify investing in a VR headset.
