    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.

    Masterpiece! The best and most fun video game of all time!! Sorry Kyoto, PSVR is the undisputed king of the world of 3d Platformers with thisMasterpiece! The best and most fun video game of all time!! Sorry Kyoto, PSVR is the undisputed king of the world of 3d Platformers with this gem; This is another level of gaming and a true system seller (Like Ferris Bueller said "If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up")..An absolute gorgeous, brilliant and progressively challenging experience that will literally take your breath away (in a good way!) I'm nearing the end of the game and I have never been so sad to see a game end. Luckily these last levels are by far the most amazing in the game and just when you think you've been blown away..Bam! You're blown away again and then world 5-2 comes and you're in awe.I lost sleep last night after 5-2; I was so impressed and couldn't stop thinking about it! Oh and the challenge stages..Pure brilliant hardcore platforming at its absolute finest and most fair! If you die, it's 100% your fault. A truly fun experience of epic proportions and wonderful game and I thank Sony's Japan Studio for giving this to the world! Oh, and the music is amazing too..I mean really amazing! Whole game is a masterpiece of design! I cannot stress how fine of a game this is! A++ 10/10 Expand

Downloaded the Astro Bot demo to see if I liked it. Around 2 minutes into the demo I knew I was buying the game. An excellent little 3D platformer. The best thing I can say about it is that it has come the closest to making me feel how I felt when I played Mario 64 for the first time around 22 years ago. It is a beautiful game and if you are new to VR as I am then I thoroughly recommend it as a first game. Only played the first two worlds so far and loving it. Not too difficult although one or two of the challenges have been tricky. Really hope they have a sequel in the works with more worlds, more collectibles but along the same lines. My favourite PSVR game so far. Expand

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

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
