There’s no shortage of shooting games for Meta’s virtual reality headsets. It feels like the left and handed controllers were made specifically to mimic the feel of holding two pistols or the trigger and pump of a shotgun. But that doesn’t mean great VR shooters are always easy to find.

Robo Recall and Robo Recall Unplugged, both among the very first games for the Oculus Rift and Quest, respectively, set the bar really high when they came out — and not just for wave shooter games. They harnessed the full capabilities of Oculus hardware to deliver crisp and immersive graphics, responsive controls, and unrelenting action that’s just as challenging and playable years after its release.
