Yupitergrad is a game that's perfectly designed for VR and is a great way of tricking yourself into some physical activity. The story is charming fluff and the sense of place is really well managed too, so if you're up for the challenge and fancy the idea of swinging through the air like a Russian Spider-man plumber, then this is one VR title that you should take the plunge(r) on.
Yupitergrad offers a satisfying sci-fi virtual reality swinging romp that will certainly push players’ skills to their limit. Sometimes, the challenge will come with the slick and hazardous level design, though other times it might be because the controls don’t offer the full precision you need. Thankfully, it’s more of the former, but you can still expect some frustrating moments along the way. Despite this, there’s certainly a good time to be had with the game, whether that’s when blasting through the campaign or challenging yourself with the additional time-trials. It’s far from being perfect as far as its swinging-escapades are concerned, but it’ll still offer plenty of laughs as you plunge- I mean, ‘SWING’ your way to safety across its vibrant adventure.
Playing Yupitergrad will make you feel like Bionic Commando albeit in a humorous cel-shaded puzzle-filled space station adventure.
While the campaign is reasonably fun — and houses a few really great set-pieces — the standout mode in the game is time attack, where you are tasked with completing a series of 20 obstacle courses as quickly as possible. Perfecting run after run in this mode is a standout of the game, and honestly, the price of entry is worth it for time attack on its own.
Yupitergrad is a great addition to the roster of Oculus Quest games, despite its issues
Yupitergrad is a great game for PSVR, full of humor and references to the former USSR, fun to play and challenging like few others, without being exhausting for failing the puzzle you want to complete. It manages to cause a feeling of realism without getting dizzy, with good use of the move controls and a draw distance that helps the 3D stand out. Maybe a longer duration or a lower difficulty curve is missed to be more accessible in the first minutes to everyone, but it is a virtual reality game that stands out from the rest and that, if you have a PSVR, it is almost It is mandatory to have it in your games library since fun is more than guaranteed.

It's quite a bit of fun and certainly a nice game to play with the freedom of the Quest 2. It's a decent price for what you get, it might not take you too long to get through (depending on your dexterity/coordination of tools etc) but the fun of swinging through the halls is fun whether you are looking to complete a task or not.
The glum visuals aren’t a deal-breaker though. The gameplay in Yupitergrad makes up for the shortcomings, as the swinging action will keep you hooked. Thanks to a pretty robust main story and the added bonus of Time Attack challenges, it will hook you in for longer than most VR titles. This is a slick title optimized for VR’s unique movement requirements, and it offers lots of fun Spider Man-style content for not many Rubles. Do your duty for the Motherland and check Yupitergrad out.
Yupitergrad is a great game that will keep you entertained for a long time thanks to it's bonus levels and challenges. While the optimization isn't perfect and enviroment is really homogeneous the game is simply fun to play.

By the time I was done with Yupitergrad, I may have been a sweaty mess, but I still feel its worth commending for its style and mechanics. Grappling as the main mechanic of movement feels smooth and the corridors and puzzles throughout the game are well-arranged.
