    Astro’s Playroom is both DualSense’s killer app and an unmissable, imaginative tribute to PlayStation’s history. Games have never felt this satisfying.

    A love letter to PlayStation and a showcase for the future of PS5: a delightful thing to include with the console.

    Astro's Playroom proves that the DualSense's haptics and adaptive triggers are for real — and that Astro Bot could have a very bright future on PlayStation 5. It's a stunning display of the thought and care Sony has put into the DualSense controller. And it's a solid platformer that everyone should play at least once.

    Astro’s Playroom is an incredible surprise that shows off all the things the DualSense can do. It’s a game that gives you a taste of what playing on PS5 can feel like, and every owner of the console should try it.

    Crisp visuals and smooth performance paired with tried-and-true gameplay and a controller that feels and behaves unlike anything that has come before - Astro’s Playroom is well worth spending some of those first PS5 moments with. The speaker, the motion controls (when limited to simple motions only), the impressive HD rumble, the adaptive triggers, it’s all here and impressive. Playing off the in-game visuals and surround sound coming through your headset or speaker setup it’s as much a proof of concept as it is a fine 3D platformer and a celebration of all things PlayStation. It leaves you wanting, and pining for a full-sized Astro adventure too. One built from the ground-up for Sony’s new console and groundbreaking new controller.

    Astro Bot has replaced Knack as the cute Sony mascot and I’m okay with it.

Its criminal that some 'critics' scored it a 7/10. This is a solid game and should not be missed. Expand

The constant references are cool, and the base platforming is rock solid, but the gimmicks (especially the monkey part) can get annoying. Its also incredibly short, running at only about 2 hours. Obviously this isn't a huge problem since you're not paying anything to get it, but don't expect it to keep you interested much longer than how long it'll take for a bigger and better game to download and install.
