GAMEPLAY (7 / 10)

Like the original game Fruit Ninja for smartphones and tablets, the player must slice fruits, while avoiding the bombs. More points are scored if the player scores critical shots (slice directly the middle of a fruit) and combos (slice multiple fruits in one swing). Unlike the original game, the player must perform full swings to cut a fruit. Overall the game is more satisfying than the original Fruit Ninja game, but lacks some features that should be ported over from the original game.

AVG. PLAYTIME (7 / 10)

For a simple arcade VR game, Fruit Ninja VR has pretty good play time of 2-5 mins per game, depending on the game mode the player chooses and how long he/she can hold out. However, for a normal player, the game may have some bad replayability due to its simplicity and could get boring easily.

PLAY AREA (9 / 10)

Fruit Ninja VR only requires a standing space which is great for anyone who don’t have much space for VR.

GRAPHICS (7 / 10)

Graphics aren’t bad for a casual, arcade VR game. It has a decent level of immersion, making the player feel like they are in a Fruit Ninja’s territory.

WRAP-UP/VERDICT

Fruit Ninja VR is a pretty good casual VR game for arcades and events due to its simplicity and easiness to learn. The title “Fruit Ninja” is also sort of established due to its past popularity on Smartphones and Tablets and anyone who has played this game would easily adapt to this VR version. The game has received very positive reviews on Steam, though some have said that the gameplay longevity could be better with more features.
