  • Summary: The year is 2050. Robots cook, clean, service, and organize the world with precision and speed. Human occupations are now memories of the past; long gone are the nine-to-five jobs that ran the old world. Humans raised in our perfect automated society must not forget their ancient ancestorsThe year is 2050. Robots cook, clean, service, and organize the world with precision and speed. Human occupations are now memories of the past; long gone are the nine-to-five jobs that ran the old world. Humans raised in our perfect automated society must not forget their ancient ancestors and history. This is why JobBot was born. JobBot created Job Simulator to teach humans what it is 'to job'. All praise to JobBot, for he is the keeper of human history. [Playstation.com]

    Job Simulator has been one of the best and most lasting experiences with the PSVR.

    Competent virtual reality creates a profound shift in the way games immerse players. Past the novelty, however, comes the demand to have a material effect on the virtual world. Being a witness is fine, but becoming a participant is better. Job Simulator, perhaps more than any other PlayStation VR launch title, neither dwells in abstracts nor resides in stasis. Its cartoony confines are genuine, and player agency, however modest, feels authentic.

    Job Simulator has a personality of its own, and that’s what sells the experience. Its lighthearted, extremely silly premise works wonders with its presentation and core gameplay. It’s just not something super deep, and that seems to be a fairly common issue with most of the VR games I’ve experienced so far. Yet at the same time, this was one that gave me the most chuckles and it’s one that’s just as much fun playing as it is watching someone else do these menial tasks.

    Probably the most funny and easy experience in VR that you can show to all the non-players you know.

    Despite its lack of content, Job Simulator is one of the most exciting and fun PlayStation VR experiences.

    Job Simulator is not best played on PSVR, but Owlchemy Labs still did an incredible job translating the game to PS4. They managed to retain the core of the experience which means folks are still set to have fun playing. It’s just a shame that the technology currently paired with PSVR (Move controller and single camera) do not allow for the complete fidelity of play required to truly make Job Simulator an amazing virtual reality experience.

    The premise is there and the concept is weirdly intriguing. But in the end, this is an overpriced game with short length, various PS Move tracking issues and frigidly bad humor that is just not enough to satisfy you for more than a few hours.

    A really fun game to get introduced to PSVR, or any veteran. Although it's short, I really enjoyed it.

It is a fun game that can offer 3-4 hours of game play if you get the very easy platinum trophy that it has. for 30 dollars that's not ideal, but compared to other VR games available right now it is decent. If this game was 10 dollars cheaper it would be a much better value. I also had tracking issues with the move controllers once in a while and even once or twice with the VR headset, but nothing that made me sick or made the game a pain to play. Expand

It's great for when people come over and want to try out my VR headset, anyone can pick it up and play. The only real complaint I have is content vs price. There should be more considering the price of it, you can run through all the content in just a few hours. Expand

    I like it, but the day shift jobs are too short. It would've beeen better if they added more jobs.

Anstatt ein richtiges Spiel daraus zu machen, wie es z.B. in in diversen Kochspielen funktioniert, muss man hier eine Sache nach der anderen abarbeiten.

    Viel schlimmer ist aber dass das Tracking der Move Controller oftmal, gerade im niedrigeren Bereich nicht sauber funktioniert.
