    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.

    Made in detail, immersive, fun. I've had enough to laugh with xD dances. Most VR games are okay but this goes beyond. Indispensable!

    If you buy it through Playstore or at a discount like me for Black Friday even better. If I had downloadable content to increase the adventure it would be a pass, many times I want to control myself playing for fear of finishing it and not being able to play anymore.

This game looks like an updated Mario 64This was the first game I played on my PSVR, and watched my teenage son play through thefirst world. This game looks like an updated Mario 64 I thought and wasn't anything special I wrongly assumed watching him play the levels. The next day I tried the game out and was blown away by how great this game is when you put on the headset and exprience it for yourself. Everything in this game is pure fun , the catchy tunes, the stunning graphics, clever gadgets and variety of levels and enemies. Every level is unique and quirky and you're driven on to see what the next level is.My personal favourites - and beach level which goes undersea and a spooky level later on. This is not just the best VR game I have played but the best platformer in my opinion. A great showcase for VR- and just pure fun Expand

    Game is great, Playing this in PSVR, you wonder why aren't there more games like this? 3RD person VR is clutch. Not that common vomitGame is great, Playing this in PSVR, you wonder why aren't there more games like this? 3RD person VR is clutch. Not that common vomit inducing 1st person style that's tanking the system. In my opinion this could very well be PSVR's #1 game. You don't have to try it before you buy it.. Just buy it. Expand

    Wow i didn't expect that. I absolutely love this so far i recently played spiderman and just didn't enjoy the game play much at all it wasWow i didn't expect that. I absolutely love this so far i recently played spiderman and just didn't enjoy the game play much at all it was super repetitive and boring while Astro Bot here instantly put a huge smile on my face. The camera in 3d perspective as the camera is brilliant. The game is quite funny aswell amd the bot is adorable.

    Could only imagine a crash bandicoot return in this form after this. It has infinite potential.

    Absolutamente sensacional.

    Un juego de plataformas original, fresco y divertido. Hay momentos que tienes que forzar un poco el cuello para poder alcanzar a ver algunas zonas, pero se perdona.

    No solo hay que controlar al personaje, a veces uno, como jugador, tiene que hacer también cosas, como esquivar con la cabeza las bolas de tinta que lanzan los calamares (y que entorpecen la vista) y romper con la cabeza algunos carteles. Seguro más adelante hay más cosas con las que interacturar con el cuerpo.

    Me parece fantástico, porque realmente hay 2 protagonistas. El robot que controlas y tú mismo, trabajo cooperativo.

    El género de las plataformas elevado a siguiente nivel.

    Creo que es el mejor juego VR y uno de los mejores plataformas de la generación.

    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 .
