    I was genuinely surprised as to how long I played Bridge Constructor. At first I thought it was a cheap simulator, but after hours of play, I was actually having fun.

    Basic in presentation, and deceptively simple on the surface, Bridge Constructor is actually a surprisingly deep and varied physics puzzle game if you’re willing to invest in it.

    Bridge Constructor is a straight-forward puzzle game that offers a good challenge for anyone looking to exercise some mental muscle.

    Bridge Constructor is a simplistic physics puzzle game that will keep you busy for more than a few hours. Its simple presentation, controls, and accurate physics make the release an enjoyably addictive experience. If you enjoy physics or have ever stopped on a bridge and marvelled at its sturdiness before, then this game is definitely worth a go – even if it's just to cross a gap between bigger releases.

    Barring performance, predictable design and somewhat low production values, Bridge Constructor is still by all means a proficient puzzle game. Successfully latticing wood and metal and cabling to ferry lorries across a steep ravine feels great, and especially if you managed to cut costs and earn a high score. Furthermore, mechanics and optimisation which encourage player experimentation and reward creative thinking makes Bridge Constructor a satisfying journey for puzzle fans on the PS4.

    Bridge Constructor is a title that tries to port the popular genre over to console, unfortunately, poorly designed controls and a lack of tutorials mean the experience falls short. Players are never properly introduced to the game's physics, which makes the experience far more frustrating than it ever needs to be.

    A Very Fun and challenging puzzle game.
    The Island nation was struck by an earthquake and destroyed every bridge on ever island...
    And as the name suggests it’s your job to re construct the fallen bridges…
    There are 64 levels in this game, all that get increasingly harder…
    Thankfully the game does a great job at teaching you the rules and physics by gradually introducing new challenges and materials…
    Every bridge has a budget, so you have to choose your materials carefully, and in some cases you only get to use a handful of these materials increasing the challenge…
    And as you construct you can test the stability of your bridge at any moment by watching a car or truck drive across it..
    Gaining more points if your bridge can handle the truck test…
    Its insanely satisfying finally coming up with a solution to a weak spot in your bridge and pass levels that gave you so much trouble…
    This is a great learning tool and problem solving game for all ages…
    And things get even harder when you enter the land of slopemania and have to deal with building sloping bridges…
    My only issue with this game is the slight nuisance of having to keep going into the material menu if I want to place pieces of my current material on other parts of the bridge…
    By default your materials stick instead of being separate objects…
    So a lot of times I would go place a piece of wood on the opposite side of my bridge only to realize I just placed a long piece of wood on the side I was trying to work away from…
    It’s very easy to undo or delete individual sections of the bridge without destroying everything else…
    But still just a bit annoying.. As well as the cloud sync every time I go to start a new level...
    Bridge constructor is a simple and very accessible game in all of the right ways…
    A few flow problems with the decisions to make materials continuously stick by default..
    But this is still an addictive, fun, and challenging time...
    If you love testing your brain, definitely pick this one up.
    I give bridge constructor
    an 7/10

There ain't much by the way of surprises here - you build bridges that need to be structurally sound - you have limited bridge building material - if your bridge succeeds you go on to the next project. This isn't going to compete with GTAV anytime soon but it does what it says well. Ultimately your enjoyment will boil down to whether or not you enjoy a puzzle game of this sort - I found it oddly captivating. Expand
