    A thunderously stylish arcade shooter with spectacle to spare, Megaton Rainfall is a must-have for PSVR owners.

    Megaton Rainfall is, in more ways than one, the perfect superhero simulator, making players understand that special powers can do way more harm than good. With a short but very sweet campaign, an engaging story, and a good gameplay variety, Megaton Rainfall is a new take on the arcade shooter genre that no fan of the genre should pass on.

    Megaton Rainfall is an interesting title, it hands the player overpowered abilities and a huge sandbox to play in but forces the player to restrain themselves by making collateral damage the key to success or failure. I had hours of fun exploring the universe, checking out landmarks and discovering secrets out in the galaxy between fighting off waves of alien enemies. Unfortunately I have to mark Megaton Rainfall down for its mission-breaking bugs, however this title is a refreshing experience and a fun one at that. I recommend just taking some time to sit quietly and absorb the experience that is Megaton Rainfall.

    Megaton Rainfall gives you the entire planet to take care of and, while it can be an overwhelming responsibility at times, it’s one that I find myself stepping up to time and time again.

    Megaton Rainfall has a very interesting concept, and we've had a lot of fun with it. It's a shame it gets a little bit repetitive over time and visually doesn't hold up, but overall it's quite enjoyable.

    Megaton Rainfall checks the immense power of a god with the civil responsibility of an altruist. It's a strong pairing, and one that only fails through the volatile application of its singularity. Playing god can be exhausting when you're only capable of indistinct destruction.

    The idea of a superhero FPS sounds great on paper, but an intriguing story and a cool concept cannot save Megaton Rainfall from being a subpar action shooter; one that fails to realise the potential of the genre.

Not so much for the missions which did become quite repetitive, but more for the exploration of the universe. Something about it felt quite relaxing, some nice music in the back-ground while soaring though space, an excellent way to wind down at the end of a long week. Megaton Rainfall, you have won me over.

    un juego entretenido con un lore interesante.

    un juego entretenido con un lore interesante.
    las mecánicas son simplonas y hay poca variedad de eventos en el universo habría estado bien añadir al menos una forma de salirse del propio universo a modo de easter egg.
    Al menos durante el descubrimiento de los secretos del mapa, el juego es interesante e intrigante, aunque se queda en eso, una vez que acabas la corta historia, y la misión secundaria del final el juego se vuelve aburrido y monótono. Muy recomendado en el caso de una rebaja del 50% en caso contrario mejor comprate otra cosa

    Awesome Idea, impressive at first.
    Yet after 2+ hours the missions get annyoing and repetitive and the impressiveness fades and there is only the facade of an unconventional indie game left.

    Might be worth a look for some people who always wanted a partial superman simulator.

    PSone graphics on VR. Great. I've worked as videogames reviewer in many Spanish magazines for 10 years, so I have plenty of experience as aPSone graphics on VR. Great. I've worked as videogames reviewer in many Spanish magazines for 10 years, so I have plenty of experience as a videogames critic. Having that as introduction, I can say Megaton Rainfall is an epic disappointment.

    I think the whole disaster comes from a wrong design pipeline. Instead of working the bigger scenarios and then the detailed ones according to those, they've done just the opposite. And of course, the result is absolutely terrible. Graphics are almost OK when you are in a city (almost) and they are irrelevant when you are in the deep space; but everything in between is... I can't find the proper word to describe it. Those "intermediate graphics" seem to be a PSone or PS2 videogame at best. No, actually there were many games in PSone with better graphics than this crap.

    Controls are not terrible, but they should be much, much better in order to make you feel the superhero you're supposed to be. You can see your hands in the air but it's not PlayStation Move compatible? Seriously?

    The lack of colors and details makes the whole experience repetitive and boring. The enemies design is completely stupid: point at the red dot. Always. No matter what enemy it is: the red dot is the target. That's it. Come on...

    After several repetitive stages played, you find out Megaton Rainfall it's a complete waste of time. It doesn't worth the time, the money or the effort. The idea was great. The game is rubbish.
