Fruit Ninja is a very simple game. The premise of the game is to slice fruit that appears on screen and score points by doing so. It’s as simple as that and has been ported over to every major console and PC platform at this point.
Since this is an Oculus Quest review we’re going to be focusing more on how it plays on that platform. For the most part, you do exactly what you would do on a console or PC version of the game, just with a controller in hand instead of a mouse/touchpad. The only exception being the fact that sometimes your hands might get in the way of seeing where you want to slice fruit.
The one thing that makes Fruit Ninja on Quest stand out is just how much more immersive it feels. Where you would usually be cutting fruit on a screen in front of you, on Quest you feel like the entire world is filled with fruit to slice and cut down. It’s great for people who might get motion sick on something like Beat Saber but are still interested in using the room-scale to full effect.
Also, if you’re like me and aren’t a big fan of Fruit Ninja on console or PC (I always end up feeling like I’m playing the game wrong after dying 200+ times in a row), this version might be more up your alley. You can play it at whatever pace you want and the fact that it’s in VR makes you feel like a true ninja. You can even feel like a hero if you do well enough to beat the Fruit Ninja arcade machine hidden in-game.
So if you’re looking for a simple game to pass the time that’s also somewhat challenging, Fruit Ninja might be right up your alley. The fact that it’s on Quest makes it feel like you’re truly doing something unique and fun with your VR headset.
There isn’t much else to say about this one other than it’s definitely worth giving a shot if you’ve ever played it before. It’s free, simple, and fun to play by yourself or with friends nearby.
If you’re looking for something simple to waste some time on, Fruit Ninja is definitely worth checking out.
I give Fruit Ninja 3/5 stars.
