    Astro Bot Rescue Mission is not only the best PSVR title to date, but also arguably the best platformer of this generation so far.

    Frankly, if Astro Bot isn’t my favorite game this year, I’ll not only eat my hat, I’ll roam the lands eating every hat I come into contact with — it’s that damn good, and the definitive argument for owning a PSVR headset.

    When it comes to either VR games or 3D platformers, you can't do much better than Astro Bot: Rescue Mission. In fact, its incredible world and super-satisfying gameplay make it my favourite new game of 2018 so far.

    Astro Bot Rescue Mission is an imaginative and innovative platformer which plays to the strengths of PlayStation VR and delivers an immersive experience that isn’t easy to forget. Stunning presentation elevated by insanely good animation ensure that you always feel present in the release’s virtual world, while tight controls and genuinely clever level design will keep you engaged. This is the kind of game that will leave you beaming long after you’ve taken the headset off – and we can’t give it higher praise than that.

    Not only is it the best platformer on the PSVR, it's also good enough to rival some of the recent releases on modern consoles. It's a fun, friendly, and charming title that will make you 'ooh' and 'ahh' for the game's duration.

    The challenging platforming and natural implementation of VR make it one of the most interesting and genuinely new-feeling games in recent memory. Astro Bot Rescue Mission delivers on the potential of PSVR and is a must-buy for owners of the device.

    Astro Bot Rescue Mission, like its titular hero, gets the job done.

Games like God of War and Spider-Man were excellent but they felt a little like playing great looking versions of last gen games. Astro Bot makes you feel like you are playing a video game from the future and it honestly made me feel like a kid again. The graphics and sense of scale are incredible. The controls are perfect. The main levels are brilliant, the challenges are fun, and the boss fights are epic. There is a ton of content for a $39.99 game. This is easily my favorite game of the year. A must buy game for any PSVR owner and one of the 10 best games I've played this generation. Expand

The total immersion of VR cannot be conveyed in words, but suffice it to say that the polish, attention to detail, scale, color palette, rendering, and overall gameplay in VR is an experience which not only set the bar for ALL VR experiences, but redefined next gen gaming and the future of the metaverse. I believe this game FINALLY proved the power and value of joyful and beautiful escapism in VR. Gaming doesn't have to be only for 16 to 40 year old wannabe sociopaths mowing down fields of bodies. Make fun gaming experiences that take us away from the horrors of the world. No matter what games you like to play though you owe it to yourself to drop $40 and get this game ASAP! Expand

Charming visuals and atmosphere and fantastic usage of the visual capabilities of the Psvr. The general controls don’t add anything to the genre on their own, but the design of puzzles and movement around the 3d environment far surpass what can be done on a flat screen. Expand

What more could you ask for. It has you leaning around corners to see platforms. Standing up to see over ledges. It is just pure adorable fun. Also with the bright blue skies, palm trees and beaches, it is the perfect game to be playing as we go into October, with darker evenings and winter approaching. I can't recommend this game enough. I will find every last robot in every level! Expand

It's not hype, it's genuinely the most fun single player VR game I've ever played. If you have a PSVR it's a no brainer. I'm not sure if it's worth buying the headset just for this one game, but if you have the money to do so then jump on it! Expand

    This game does nothing new. If you like quirky characters you might like this ever but it's so fast you miss the action and fun of the fight .
