    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.

    Best PSVR game i have played. It brings a smile to my face every time I load in and i get lost in the beautiful rendered worlds. Really goodBest PSVR game i have played. It brings a smile to my face every time I load in and i get lost in the beautiful rendered worlds. Really good platforming and music to go along with it. level design is really well done, takes advantage of the VR and lots of secrets to find along the way. Also you dont really get much motion sickness playing this, so if you are beginner at VR this is a good game to start. Expand

I am glad i did pull the trigger because reviews are correct and this is exceptional platformer in VR. Everything about this game is exceptional. Level design , cute characters, lovely music, beautiful, sharp graphics on PS4Pro. Game is a great value with many hours of none stop fun.

    If there is any Virtual Reality game that deserves 10 out of 10 rating than there it is.
    Sony found their own Mario.

    Didn't think that a platform for vr was possible. But this is a great integration of the genre with virtual reality. The character is superDidn't think that a platform for vr was possible. But this is a great integration of the genre with virtual reality. The character is super cute, level design is super mario level or better, soundtrack brings happiness in every play session. Every level is unique and different and concepts are almost never reused. Bossfights are quite simple but really entertaining. It' s a must buy for every psvr possessor Expand
