Megaton Rainfall is more of an experience than a game and one I soon won't forget. It's short, and simple, but asks a good question of the player while also giving him or her plenty of action. It's better with VR, but worth a look in for just about everyone.
First off, let me start by saying I have worked as videogames reviewer in many Spanish magazines for 11 years, so I have plenty of experience as a video game critic, vastly more so then my brother CRoblex who only worked as a videogame reviewer for 10 years.
Since I only judge games based on graphics (very much like my brother, because that's what they teach us at the Spanish video game reviewing school) I must say this game is an EPIC disappointment. 1995 graphics in 2018? great.
Since I skipped the classes on how to review gameplay, story and sound design, I'll just skip to the controls. They are ok but they could have been better. So 0/10 for controls.
What's left to say... oh yeah I like games with lots of colors. This game is unfortunately not up to par for my standards, so I'll just give it a 0/10 for the color palette (they don't even teach this in the Spanish video game reviewing school! I must be a genius to have come up with this myself!)
All in all, using my 11 years experience as video games reviewer working for many Spanish magazines, I conclude that this is, in fact, a video game. 10/10
Amazing game, I've been wanting a super hero simulator of this scale for a long long time, and seeing this come apparently out of nowhere was a huge surprise. This is definitely the sleeper hit of 2017, I can only hope it becomes a massive success so we may have more games similar to this one. It's even dirt cheap, at only 16$. Truly makes you feel like an all powerful superhero (or supervillain, if you feel like going on a rampage hehe)
Towards the end of the game, the mechanics finally start playing with its stratospheric scale. It’s here that Megaton Rainfall’s potential becomes more apparent. The scored aspects are largely botched by dull and awkward mechanics, but the sandbox portion is incredible. If you just do what this god tells you, you’re in for a mediocre experience. But when you learn where the real fun is, it becomes something more. Hopefully, we’ll one day see a game like this that uses its scale as part of the scored challenge. Until then, pick this up when you see it on sale. The feeling it gives you is just too special to miss.
The idea of a superhero FPS sounds great on paper, but an intriguing story and a cool concept cannot save Megaton Rainfall from being a subpar action shooter; one that fails to realise the potential of the genre.
For me this game is simply the best psvr game of the moment. i bought it without knowing anything about, just after seeing a video. And wow, this is why i have bought a psvr, for such an experience. Now i'm a super Hero and i don't want this game to end. if you are asking yourself, do i have to buy this game , just an answer : YES. if you have a psvr and don't have this game, then u just missed the best
un juego entretenido con un lore interesante.
las mecánicas son simplonas y hay poca variedad de eventos en el universo habría estado bien añadir al menos una forma de salirse del propio universo a modo de easter egg.
Al menos durante el descubrimiento de los secretos del mapa, el juego es interesante e intrigante, aunque se queda en eso, una vez que acabas la corta historia, y la misión secundaria del final el juego se vuelve aburrido y monótono. Muy recomendado en el caso de una rebaja del 50% en caso contrario mejor comprate otra cosa
Awesome Idea, impressive at first.
Yet after 2+ hours the missions get annyoing and repetitive and the impressiveness fades and there is only the facade of an unconventional indie game left.
Might be worth a look for some people who always wanted a partial superman simulator.
PSone graphics on VR. Great. I've worked as videogames reviewer in many Spanish magazines for 10 years, so I have plenty of experience as a videogames critic. Having that as introduction, I can say Megaton Rainfall is an epic disappointment.
I think the whole disaster comes from a wrong design pipeline. Instead of working the bigger scenarios and then the detailed ones according to those, they've done just the opposite. And of course, the result is absolutely terrible. Graphics are almost OK when you are in a city (almost) and they are irrelevant when you are in the deep space; but everything in between is... I can't find the proper word to describe it. Those "intermediate graphics" seem to be a PSone or PS2 videogame at best. No, actually there were many games in PSone with better graphics than this crap.
Controls are not terrible, but they should be much, much better in order to make you feel the superhero you're supposed to be. You can see your hands in the air but it's not PlayStation Move compatible? Seriously?
The lack of colors and details makes the whole experience repetitive and boring. The enemies design is completely stupid: point at the red dot. Always. No matter what enemy it is: the red dot is the target. That's it. Come on...
After several repetitive stages played, you find out Megaton Rainfall it's a complete waste of time. It doesn't worth the time, the money or the effort. The idea was great. The game is rubbish.
SummaryBecome an indestructible interdimensional superbeing in this first-person superhero game, and save Earth from an alien invasion. Be careful though - you are so powerful you can destroy entire skyscrapers (unintentionally) when you miss your otherworldly target...
