    Astro Bot Rescue Mission is not only the best PSVR title to date, but also arguably the best platformer of this generation so far.

    Frankly, if Astro Bot isn’t my favorite game this year, I’ll not only eat my hat, I’ll roam the lands eating every hat I come into contact with — it’s that damn good, and the definitive argument for owning a PSVR headset.

    When it comes to either VR games or 3D platformers, you can't do much better than Astro Bot: Rescue Mission. In fact, its incredible world and super-satisfying gameplay make it my favourite new game of 2018 so far.

    Astro Bot Rescue Mission is an imaginative and innovative platformer which plays to the strengths of PlayStation VR and delivers an immersive experience that isn’t easy to forget. Stunning presentation elevated by insanely good animation ensure that you always feel present in the release’s virtual world, while tight controls and genuinely clever level design will keep you engaged. This is the kind of game that will leave you beaming long after you’ve taken the headset off – and we can’t give it higher praise than that.

    Not only is it the best platformer on the PSVR, it's also good enough to rival some of the recent releases on modern consoles. It's a fun, friendly, and charming title that will make you 'ooh' and 'ahh' for the game's duration.

    The challenging platforming and natural implementation of VR make it one of the most interesting and genuinely new-feeling games in recent memory. Astro Bot Rescue Mission delivers on the potential of PSVR and is a must-buy for owners of the device.

    Astro Bot Rescue Mission, like its titular hero, gets the job done.

    This was the first game I played on my PSVR, and watched my teenage son play through thefirst world. This game looks like an updated Mario 64This was the first game I played on my PSVR, and watched my teenage son play through thefirst world. This game looks like an updated Mario 64 I thought and wasn't anything special I wrongly assumed watching him play the levels. The next day I tried the game out and was blown away by how great this game is when you put on the headset and exprience it for yourself. Everything in this game is pure fun , the catchy tunes, the stunning graphics, clever gadgets and variety of levels and enemies. Every level is unique and quirky and you're driven on to see what the next level is.My personal favourites - and beach level which goes undersea and a spooky level later on. This is not just the best VR game I have played but the best platformer in my opinion. A great showcase for VR- and just pure fun Expand

    This game does nothing new. If you like quirky characters you might like this ever but it's so fast you miss the action and fun of the fight .
