    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime reminds me of why I love video games, because it provides a unique and colorful journey to get totally immersed in that can be enjoyed with a loved one. Probably the most original game I've played to completion in the past five years.

    The unique, utterly charming aesthetic certainly plays its part, but ultimately, it’s the fundamental gameplay that makes this game quite as special as it is. The combination of solid shooting mechanics with personnel and task management is inspired, leading to this being one of the most entertaining games that I have played this year and amongst the finest co-op experiences of the generation.
  3. Success feels amazing. Exhilarating, even. Primarily, I have to believe, because of the co-op aspect of the experience. I’ve probably performed more victory high fives in the last few days than I have in the last year.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is one of the most unique games to come out in quite some time. In fact, the only thing keeping it from being a blast for everyone is its intense difficulty.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime isn't meant to be played alone. The game wants you to experience its trials and tribulations with a friend or loved one. The key is finding the right friend or loved one, because enjoying this game requires the right partner. Choose wisely and you'll have a great experience. Choose poorly and it's an exercise in frustration.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime can occasionally feel a little too stressful for its own good, but there's something undeniably lovely about its core design.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime tried for a bold experiment with its control scheme, and though this sets it apart from other similar games, it’s ultimately an experiment that needs to go back to the drawing board.

    For the life of me I don't understand why some idiots would give this 2 negative reviews? Obviously they haven't played the game, just readFor the life of me I don't understand why some idiots would give this 2 negative reviews? Obviously they haven't played the game, just read the title and decided as (2 very mature 13 year olds) to give this a zero because it was pink and had love in the title. I've put in 15 hours with a buddy of mine and I have to say...I haven't had this much fun playing a video game in years. Run, don't walk to your console and buy this game. It's FANTASTIC. It's a solid 9, I'm giving it a ten to counter the ludicrous reviews. Expand

    Such a fun game. I highly recommend it to any competitive person who likes to have fun with their friends. I have been playing the game forSuch a fun game.

    I don't care about the stress levels this game causes, but more about the beautifully friendship-ending moments.

    When your friend won't
    I don't care about the stress levels this game causes, but more about the beautifully friendship-ending moments.

    When your friend won't co-operate and acts if they are deaf while you are trying to do everything. When your friend rage quits because you aren't listening to a word they say. When you feel like smashing a plate over your friends head because they turned the TV off in frustration.

    The amount of moments this game has that kills your friendship almost make up for terrible gameplay. Well, if the gameplay was bad. The gameplay is ridiculed with traps and ways to die with many ways to strengthen your relationship somehow. 97.56789% loss of friendship, 2.111111% strengthen of friendship.

    I recommend this game to everyone, but especially good-at-arguing people with loads of friends and also someone who isn't easily stressed and doesn't mind losing a friend.
