You can’t help but love Fall Out Boy. There’s at least one track by the band that everybody loves. Their infectious rhythms and catchy lyrics make them one of the most timeless and indeed accessible rock bands of the modern generation and so, when I learned that eight of their most successful songs would be making their way onto virtual reality game Beat Saber in the form of DLC, I couldn’t wait to hack-and-slash through their tunes.
The Beat Saber game has always been an incredible title for any owner of an Meta Quest, Quest 2 or Meta Rift headset. It’s one of the finest virtual reality experiences available, with slick and eye-catching design, transporting the user into various states of emotion dependant on which of the many songs they’ve decided to take on.
Recent months has seen the likes of Green Day and even Lady Gaga lend some of their discography to the game, allowing their fans to get more involved than perhaps ever before with a high level of immersion, thanks to the environments and colours used to evoke feelings of excitement.
That’s exactly what the Fall Out Boy Music Pack does – and then some. With tones of red and orange, any young adult who was rocking out to Thnks fr th Mmrs and Dance, Dance in the sweaty halls and arenas that the band frequented in earlier years will be transported right back to that place, complete with the sweat if you ramp up the difficulty and put your all into each of the required movements.
Eight songs is enough to keep you occupied for countless hours, as you go from normal, to hard, then extreme and beyond, but I do feel a rounded 10 would have been more appropriate. Still, this isn't a Music Pack I'm going to get bored of any time soon. Who needs a gym when you've got Beat Saber?
