Best Windows Mixed Reality Games Windows Central 2019

Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) is here, and it's brought a new selection of immersive games to the Microsoft Store. To help you decide which games you should play, I've rounded up the best on offer right now. If you haven't tried Superhot VR then you really should. It's the best.

Creepy fun: Crystal Rift

It's not the most technically advanced VR game out there, but Crystal Rift offers near-infinite replayability thanks to a level editor and interesting storyline. There are also plenty of spooky characters waiting to make your acquaintance, but you can set the scare level if you'd rather not get your heart racing.

Free, free falling: Gravity Lab

Another great game that tests your problem-solving skills, Gravity Lab lets you tackle more than 60 puzzles that all have to do with gravity. Once you've completed all puzzles, the level editor lets you create and share content with other players.

The zombies are coming: Arizona Sunshine

Arizona Sunshine is a first-person shooter (FPS) that plops you down in the middle of a sweltering desert following a zombie apocalypse. Featuring beautiful graphics, satisfying gunplay, and a detailed world, this is one of the best shooters we've seen so far in VR.

Fancy building: Fantastic Contraption

Designed as a creativity incubator for just about all VR-appropriate ages, Fantastic Contraption lets players design whatever they want. Whether you're catapulting something across an expanse, building a rolling truck to smash through a wall, or bridging a divide, this game is sure to have you laughing the entire time.

The name says it all: Space Pirate Trainer

Space Pirate Trainer has been around for quite awhile now on Steam, and it moved from Early Access in 2017 to coincide with the WMR release. You have a full arsenal at your disposal in this fast-paced arcade FPS, but you're going to be moving around. A lot. If you like the idea of a room-scale, physical shooter, this is one for you.

$15 at Microsoft

RTS for WMR: Skyworld

Not only is WMR great for immersive first-person games, but it's also great for games that require a high vantage point, like the real-time strategy genre. Skyworld takes a tabletop fantasy world in which you command forces on the battlefield and at home and moves it successfully into VR.

Bullet time madness: Superhot VR

Yes, Superhot VR is an FPS, but it has an interesting mechanic that sets it apart. Your enemies don't move until you move, making this an intense strategy game with brief moments of shooting, slicing, and dodging incoming fire. It's the most fun you can have on WMR or just about anwhere else.

$25 at Microsoft

Monster fighting: TITAN SLAYER

Want to feel what it's like to take on hulking monsters face-to-face? Want to use swords and shields, bows and arrows, and even automatic guns? You're probably going to spend a lot of time in TITAN SLAYER then. You can grab different weapons on the fly to counterattack whatever Titan you're up against, and you'll receive extra points if you pull off moves that the PC deems impressive.

$11 at Microsoft

Softly softly: Windlands

If violent FPS games aren't quite what you're looking for, Windlands might just be the ticket. Featuring beautiful music, a haunting atmosphere, and challenging gameplay, it's easy to lose yourself here.

The zombies are also coming in blocks!: Minecraft

There's not much to say about Minecraft that hasn't already been said. The insanely popular building and exploring game is now available within WMR, and the experience is incredible. There's just as much intensity here as most VR action games — try exploring a cavern in the dark and see for yourself.

Converted Classic: Eternity Warriors VR

Based on the award winning mobile game, Eternity Warriors VR brings its signature hack and slash mechanics to WMR. Blast and cut your way through endless enemies using magic and swords to be victorious.
