Top Critic Average
It's only when things slow down in Cyber Hook that things feel clunky and awkward. The rest of the time this is a senses-heightening adrenaline shot to right to the eyeball.
A solid game marred by uneven design choices and bad level design. It can certainly be fun and has some novel mechanics, but it's so unsure as to what kind of game it wants to be that it never finds its footing, despite the fact that it would have been easy for it to do so.
Cyber Hook has an insanely satisfying core gameplay loop. Unfortunately, it doesn't have much else to offer.
Its free form but open level-design makes exploration fun and gives me such a satisfying feeling after completing each level to sometimes retry them again and again to optimize my route and get that three-star rating. If you want a game that is easy to learn, emphasizes arcade-like replayability and just feels great to play on Switch, Cyber Hook should definitely be on your radar. I can't say anything else except that I'm completely hooked on this one.
For a game based on maintaining your momentum, it's disappointing that Cyber Hook wears thin after playing it for only a short while. That being said, some gamers who enjoy re-playing levels repeatedly to outdo their previous efforts might enjoy it.
With an adrenaline-pumping proposal, Cyber Hook pits the player against the clock in challenging stages. With gameplay that mixes parkour and superheroes, it is possible to use various skills, such as the hook with rope and the time warp, to reach the end of each level by going through platforms, climbing walls and jumping through chasms. With great visuals and lots of levels to play, this is another recommended title for your library.

Cyber Hook is a platform game in a virtual reality world where we will use a hook to swing from one place to another. A very complete title and with a very well measured gameplay.

From its solid controls to its stunning neon atmosphere and pounding synthwave soundtrack, Cyber Hook is a tight little package.
Cyber Hook is as fun as it is fast, and rest assured, it is very fast.
