    Genuinely amusing and one of the slickest VR experiences to date, Job Simulator is perfect for quick demos of your new headset, but has little long-term value beyond that.

    Job Simulator is a little on the expensive side for a game that doesn't offer a great deal of long-term challenge, but it's a great purchase for those new to VR or who want a fun and funny game to use to introduce VR to their friends or family.

    Whether you're flipping a fried egg or turning a dial, this is tactile and satisfying, if slight, entertainment. [Tested with Vive; June 2016, p.121]

    Job Simulator lives up to its own ambitions, presenting a compact, cute, and accessible showcase for interacting with virtual locations. [Tested with Vive]

    These robots have heart, but not depth. [Tested with HTC Vive; Issue#176, p.84]

  1. The Vive floodgates opened up today: I’m hoping that, somewhere in the sprawl of new titles, I’ll find something that answers the lingering question: what kind of games am I going to play in VR in the longer term? The witty and inventive Job Simulator is an excellent shopfront display for Valve and HTC’s technology, but it is not by any means an answer to that question.

    This game lacked replayability a while ago, now they added a new mode that gives you constant challenges. Its funny and great.

    I'd like to give Job Simulator a 10 out of 10 .... but I can't. Job Simulator is amazingly fun game. The implementation of room scale and controller experience is perfect. It's a game that is guaranteed to absolutely stun anyone new to the room scale VR experience.

    So, why not 10 out of 10? There just isn't enough replayability in the game. The is arguably only about 15-20 minutes of game play for your money here.

    Still, I don't regret my purchase as every time I fire it up and I have great time .... just not for a very long time. I'd love to see the publisher take this game and make a MUCH larger and longer game. I'd happily pay $60 for a Job Simulator 2 game that has 40 plus hours of game play in it.
