    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.

And that includesThe best VR game (besides RE7) on any platform, and one of the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had. It is a MUST BUY. And that includes buying a PSVR if you need to. This game combines many lessons and highlights from other platformers and VR games and yet manages to carve out its own unique identity. Astro Bot has a ton of ideas of its own also. It reminds you of a mario game where as the game goes on, you’re introduced to new mechanics and play styles all the way until the end. Each level is a work of art and quite unique. I could go on and on about this game, but take my advice (as someone who owns 3 headsets), Astro Bot is a major breakthrough for VR GAMES — not tech demos — actual games that feel like games and are uniquely suited to VR.

Not that common vomitGame is great, Playing this in PSVR, you wonder why aren't there more games like this? 3RD person VR is clutch. Not that common vomit inducing 1st person style that's tanking the system. In my opinion this could very well be PSVR's #1 game. You don't have to try it before you buy it.. Just buy it. Expand

I have not finished the whole game, but I sense it is not super long as there appears to be only 5 worlds, that being said there is a lot of replay ability in my opinion going through and making sure you find everything in each world. Buy this game and enjoy!!! Expand

What more could you ask for. It has you leaning around corners to see platforms. Standing up to see over ledges. It is just pure adorable fun. Also with the bright blue skies, palm trees and beaches, it is the perfect game to be playing as we go into October, with darker evenings and winter approaching. I can't recommend this game enough. I will find every last robot in every level! Expand

It's not hype, it's genuinely the most fun single player VR game I've ever played. If you have a PSVR it's a no brainer. I'm not sure if it's worth buying the headset just for this one game, but if you have the money to do so then jump on it! 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 .
