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

    Super Mario 64 showed us the possibilities of 3D platform gaming more than 20 years ago. Now, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission is finally here to do the same for VR.

    Astro Bot Rescue Mission is the best game for PlayStation VR to date. The levels are brilliant and the VR-experience is overwhelming. Everyone with a PS VR should buy this game.

    Astro Bot Rescue Mission is a delightful PSVR platforming adventure. It's easily one of the best VR platformers out there, and is an excellent addition to any PSVR library.

    Astro Bot Rescue Mission feels like it came out of nowhere to quietly prove that familiar genres can feel like new experiences with the aid of virtual reality. While the medium is capable of creating entirely new interactive experiences, Rescue Mission serves as a great reminder that the styles of games we already like can be translated to VR, and when it is done as well as it has been here, you get a chance to experience something that feels genuinely new and exciting.

    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.

    This game is a solid 9 out of 10 but this score should cancel out the frankly ridiculous zero score someone left. The graphics are top notch,This game is a solid 9 out of 10 but this score should cancel out the frankly ridiculous zero score someone left. The graphics are top notch, probably the best yet on PSVR if not any VR game. Definitely a milestone in VR gaming, my only criticisms would be that the levels are a bit too linear and overall the game is a bit too easy. Expand

This game does nothing new, I don't even understand third person VR and how it brings anything new to the table. If you like quirky characters you might like this. Otherwise I'll be playing Firewall Zero Hour Expand
