Fruit Ninja VR
Fruit Ninja VR takes the well known and beloved mobile game to the higher level. The game offers several modes. In Classic mode, you ought to slice all the fruits up and, as you probably already know, avoid the bombs. In Arcade, you do pretty much the same but in 60 seconds time frame. Survival mode is designed for battle-hardened ninjas, but my personal favorite is Zen mode – 90 seconds, no bombs, just fruits! Dual wielding is also enabled.
Set in ancient Rome, Gladius is VR sword fighting gladiator experience. The game is still in early access (development) phase, and even though it is fun and immersive, weapon physics and collisions still require some reprogramming in order to give you a polished VR sword fighting experience.
In my mind, I rarely imagine sword fighting without a Katana. In Death Dojo, you get to be a samurai fighting to the death against another samurai. In a one-on-one death match scenario your goal is to deliver a precise blow to the neck of your opponent, the only weak spot in his armor.

DEUS VULT | Online VR sword fighting
Deus Vult brings us the medieval VR sword fighting experience, but what makes it stand out from other games on our list is the multiplayer option. The developers did a great job with weapon physics, there are 14 different weapons and each of them offers a specific gameplay and feeling when using them. However, the graphics are not as impressive. There is a social tavern where you can interact with other players, and online matchmaking is available too!
