    Even a couple of odd design decisions don't get in the way of the high-octane thrills here, thankfully. [Issue#253, p.70]

    Whether you played the PSM version or not Switch Galaxy Ultra is still just really fun.

    Switch Galaxy Ultra is a fun game to play in small bursts. When you are whizzing through the tracks at great speed it is exhilarating. However, it loses its focus when it adds gameplay barriers that detract from the quick paced nature of the game.

    Where some mobile games choke on the big stage, Atomicom's space racer finds new form. Surprisingly grinding after the first few stages, though. [March 2015, p.95]

    If you're willing to block out the story and to seek out the challenges that SGU provides too many ways to avoid, a deceptively fun and enticing arcade racer is there for the taking.

    Switch Galaxy Ultra is the PS4 version of one of the dozen of endless runner that you've stumbled upon in the last three years on your smartphone or tablet. Nothing more, nothing less.

    It's a challenging game. The controls are easy to master, but the gameplay is everything but easy :D
    And knowing that this game donates all their profits to Caudwell Children (charity)!
    Truly a great job on this game! Can't wait for another game of this developer!

    Currently on PSN for free for PS+ members ... is it worth it....

    yeah, just about.

    Styled like a mash-up between a cyber-punk-comic and F-Zero (Nintendo classic), Switch Galaxy Ultra is a reflex game. Already my partner has taken to it well as it's controls consist of "push left" go left, "push right" go right and X to boost. This simplicity is why the games actually okay, easy to pick up and put an hour or two into and casually return to another day.

    It is what it is - feels like a glossy app for a tablet, but it plays well. Perhaps more use of the music would of brought a little more to the game - ie - having the music in sync with movement or speed etc

    Switch Galaxy Ultra is an endless runner in which the player has to steer (or more accurately switch) their spaceship between up to five lanesSwitch Galaxy Ultra is an endless runner in which the player has to steer (or more accurately switch) their spaceship between up to five lanes in order to avoid obstacles, collect orbs and hit boost pads. As with plenty of other PS+ offerings over the last year or so this is another title that would be fine played in shorts bursts while sitting on the train or bus but, with the wealth of alternatives available on modern consoles, I never felt the urge to invest all that much time in it. The gameplay is just too simplistic and, even with the upgrades that can be made to your ship(s), it doesn’t evolve in any meaningful way from start to finish. Expand

    Despite looking like Wipeout it is a racer where you switch tracks to avoid obstacles and gain speed by hitting ramps. The excellent originalDespite looking like Wipeout it is a racer where you switch tracks to avoid obstacles and gain speed by hitting ramps. The excellent original Playstation Mobile was a fast game where you tried to beat certain times to progress. For some reason they ruined the game by making progression by gathering orbs from this inexplicable horrible free 3D sections that occur mid way through a level. You then lose and orb if you hit an obstacle. Until the mid section of the game where you gain orbs it really doesn't matter what you are doing as long as you don't die. Also the game seems about half as fast as the original and it makes it really boring. They added a lot of story and narration that nobody wanted. I can't believe they screwed up this game so bad and had the gall to charge $19 for it. Expand
