    To say Trover Saves the Universe is a good VR game would be an understatement. It perfectly blends over-the-top comedy and solid combat while making the most of the VR technology at hand by dragging players into the world and making them centre of the story. Its brand of comedy will not be to everyone's liking, but I still think Trover Saves the Universe stands on its own as one of the best VR games released to date.

    Trover Saves the Universe is a great addition to the PSVR lineup, offering some solid gameplay with a comedy flavoring that brings it to the next level.

    Trover Saves the Universe is slick, unexpected, and vulgar beyond belief. You likely already know if the sort of humor in Trover is for you, and if its not, you should give Trover a wide berth. But if you are the sort of sicko that likes this sort of stuff, there is a surprisingly solid game lurking beneath the rapid-fire jokes and bizarre imagery.

    Trover Saves the Universe is perhaps the most fun, foul-mouthed and irreverent game you can enjoy in VR, but the gameplay is not always as good as writing.

    It is easy to say whether Trover Saves the Universe is worth your time or not. If you like the humor, the gameplay is solid enough for the game to keep your attention to the end. If you do not like the humor, however, you will probably give up before the first level is completed.

    Trover Saves the Universe is essentially a successful title, but without that surge that would have made it more memorable.

    When Trover Saves the Universe is funny, it’s VERY funny, but its humor is just not enough to carry such an average, unspectacular game.

    This is a great game that likes to tease you as you play.
    The character you control, a 'Chairopean' is a lazy guy who never gets out of his armchair and controls other people with a control pad. Hmm.
    Also, characters in the game constantly break the fourth wall, and sometimes the voice actors seem to forget their lines or ad-lib or burst out laughing. At one point, Trover berates you for killing an important NPC and ruining the game, and tells you to start again from the beginning.
    All in all this adds up to a really fun game, and as other reviewers have said, you can just wander around and listen to the ridiculous dialog.
    The VR mode doesn't really add a lot, I found my self playing it on a regular screen after a while.

    Had a lot of fun with this game, loved it on VR and made me laugh on several occasions, the game doesn't feel longer than necessary so it's 100/100

People who are offenced with this game don't se irony and sarcasm which was part of the concept. The plot is not complicated, the whole game concept is simple. I played normally without vr but thad did not make a problem. Language is strong in game and humor is rather dark. I give 7 becouse few things could be changed. Expand

    This is literally the worst game i've ever played, ever. Period. And i love Rick and Morty btw.

    This is literally the worst game i've ever played, ever. Period. And i love Rick and Morty btw.

    The experience of playing this game is literally this 'you are handicapped and everything is awkward and clunky, Dan Harmon wants you to know that he doesn't care about voice acting, the 4th wall, and he thinks video games are stupid and you're stupid for liking them. Justin Roiland wants to be somewhere else doing drugs.

    I got 3 hours into the game and made a beeline back to gamestop to return it. I've never felt so insulted as a player.
