    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.

    If there is any Virtual Reality game that deserves 10 out of 10 rating than there it is.
    Sony found their own Mario.

Just as Moss blew me away as to whatAstro Bot is definitely going to sell some PSVR systems for Sony. It is short, but absolutely amazing. Just as Moss blew me away as to what can be done in VR, this game has done it again. I don't even like Super Mario-esque platforming games. I'm just bad at them. I also don't like VR with moving scenery. It makes me a bit queasy. But I've gotten more used to it just by playing this game. If you know somebody with a PSVR at least try the demo. There's just no explaining how fun it is. Expand
