'Until You Fall' Receives a VR Health Rating

'Until You Fall' Honored as a "Best of 2019" Title →

The Virtual Reality Institute of Health and Exercise reviewed the health rating of Until You Fall, rating it “Elliptical Equivalent”.


The Virtual Reality Institute of Health and Exercise was founded in early 2017 to better understand the calorie impact of VR experiences on the human body. Its goal is to provide concrete, objective data for the discussion of video games as a source of healthy physical activity.

The “Elliptical Equivalent” badge is awarded to games that have a metabolic equivalent (MET) range of 4-6. A single MET is defined as the amount of oxygen a person consumes and energy is expended per unit of body weight. Until You Fall averaged 4.18 METs, meaning it’s as strenuous as exercising on an elliptical. The raters also observed that the game burns 4.39 to 5.06 calories per minute of play.

The rater noted that the game required them “to move both arms a great

deal to attack opponents with a sword, and to regularly duck and move

from side to side to avoid attacks.”
