Just had a quick blast on this and OH MY GOD it is STUNNING.
Anyone with a PSVR just go to your nearest store or order online ASAP.
A sheer joy to play !!

On the back of the box, does it say "1-4 players"?
Just yanks are saying their box has this, but it's been messaged as a single-player game: so people are wondering if couch co-op or online is going to be patched in.

EDIT: "Robust internet connection required to download software patch to enable local co-op functionality"



It does look good, but Amazon was out of stock (tenner cheaper than PSN store), and not had a chance to look about elsewhere.

Mine says 1 player. It just arrived so I have not played it yet.
Does anyone know what is enhanced if you have a PS4 PRO? Is it higher res or more detail or is there no info on that?

I will try it today when I get some time, looking forward to it very much because it looks like a sort of VR Mario game and I love both platform and mario games lol.

Guys this is just incredible by far the best VR game yet ..... the presentation is top notch and the gameplay amazing.
Just buy it you will be amazed , been on it most of the afternoon and the first boss you meet is well just outstanding.
Them little bots take some finding at times the little buggers !
Love the way you headbutt boards and shake the goo from your headset .... no words can describe this title it is so good and worth every penny.

How do you block an entire thread?

Every time something gets posted in the PSVR section I end up buying it. :laugh:

I will unwrap you Moss, one day.

If I didn’t have so many other games on the go at the moment I’d be all over this. Going to try and hold out for a price drop.

I had a look at the prices after reading what @kingkarl had said about the game.

Lowest physical I found was £19.99 but when I went to the website it had gone back up to £29.99, Argos and Smyths have it for £24.99 and I think Smyths are offering free delivery to account holders.

I want to support good VR games though because it will encourage more in the future. My brain says I need it.

Yeah, I know what you mean. If I had the time to spend on it, I’d just grab it at full price. So many games, so little time :)

I am from Yorkshire so paying more for something would result in me waking up next to a Whippet and/or Pigeons severed head and my Pork Pies removed from the property. I would need to be added to a register and the locals would throw dung at me, again.

I have already orded it from base.com. :smashin:

Well lads I know I keep banging on like a stuck record over this Astro Bot game.
I have just had another 2 hrs on this and holy sh*t it gets better and better and better.
The level design is outstanding and when you think how clever that level was and the next is even better it blows you away !!
Simply put the flagship title for me on the PSVR an absolutely stunning game that is really easy to play but is very very challenging to find all the bots and rescue them.
I had to have 5 passes on one level to find one of the little sh*ts lol !
This is a proper spoiler so do not read if you have not reached WORLD 2 1st stage.
Can you believe you have to actually blow the white fluffy stuff from a friggin daisy this game amazes at every level.
Lads just go and buy this title because a game this good on PSVR does not come around very often I tell ya.
Simply put a system seller that is easily worth a £50 asking price !

OH MY GOD ..... this is unreal lads & lasses.
Just done the Astro Jones level and it was out of this world.
Don't look it up but you will have a smile as wide as the English Channel when you reach it so avoid all spoilers because you are in for a treat.
This game has took over my life , even put Forza 4 on the back burner for this and that game is staggering on the X !

Only up to world 2, level 1 so far but echo thoughts of KingKarl - this game is bloody awesome!

Nintendo would be proud of this one, the attention to detail is insane!

Agreed with everyone else, I’m near to the end of the game now and this is definitely my favourite VR game. It’s just so much fun to play, the graphics are amazing. Some of the levels, it’s like having a high tech Disneyland ride in your living room! My young kids have loved watching it and I’ve let them have a few little plays on certain sections.

What makes me smile while playing through it, I have a couple of PS Pro owning friends who I’ve grown up with (we’ve all been into gaming since the ZX Spectrum days), they have shown a pretty big interest in PSVR but have yet to experience one. They are both getting PSVR from their wives for Christmas with Astro Bot as their first game! In a way I am kind of jealous that they get to have this as their first experience in VR. I know for a fact they will both be utterly blown away and gobsmacked on Christmas morning. I’ve gone as far to tell them it will be one of their very best gaming experiences so far, and I’m certain it will be.

I’ve caved and ordered from Shopto for £28, god knows when I’ll actually find the time to play it :laugh:
