  • Summary: You’re stuck in a time loop as Phil Connors, Jr., back in Punxsutawney for Groundhog Day in this virtual reality sequel to the iconic hit movie. Don’t worry, Ned will show you the way. But watch that first step — it’s a doozy! So why don’t you stay here a while?

    Groundhog Day is a fun, mind-bending adventure that encourages trial and error. Its funny, witty and everything is presented in a pleasing manner. The VR implementation is good and I had zero issues throughout. Groundhog Day came from nowhere and really surprised me. I really enjoyed it.

    Groundhog Day Like Father Like is an entertaining follow-up to Bill Murray's classic movie, which replicates the successes of the film in a playable way. It is not especially long or innovative in the playable, but if you like the movie and experiences like Job Simulator, here is a good proposal.

    Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is an enjoyable return to Punxsutawney in game form. The repetition is both an interesting concept and a bit of a pain, but you will appreciate it, and the VR shenanigans, as the scenarios develop.

    At the end of the day, this is a neat experiment that fans of the film will enjoy, but overall it fails to measure up to the source material.

    Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is a singular gaming experience, with time loops the player must replay again and again to change the course of events. It’s an interesting game but it lacks rhythm and interactions.

    Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son should be praised for its devotion to the source material and bravery in its expansive approach to a time-honored classic film, but it fails in certain glaring areas that may frustrate its audience.

    Unlike its protagonist, Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son shows little interest in forging its own identity. If you’re craving a return to Punxsutawney, rewatching the movie is a far more rewarding choice.

The look of the game defiantly degraded from the sad moments, but over all a great experience if you get a good discount.

    Plus, @Jmack5, the game is literately rated M, not the company's fault, but your own.

    It should be noted that there is a lot of heavy cursing in the game, which wasn't expected as there was no cursing in the actual movie. My sonIt should be noted that there is a lot of heavy cursing in the game, which wasn't expected as there was no cursing in the actual movie. My son had been looking forward to this game for awhile as we are both fans of the movie. Now I've wasted the money and we won't be playing the game due to the constant vulgarity.
