All in all, The Last Worker is a good game for VR. Without being perfect, it has a good lifespan and an interesting story. Sprinkled with humor and challenges, the game will keep you laughing and occupied for a good while. Admittedly, it's aimed more at fans of series like Borderlands, but can also appeal to everyone. I think the experience is more interesting in virtual reality. That said, it's also playable without this technology. However, if you have the opportunity to try it out in VR, it's worth considering! Finally, there were a few technical issues that made me cringe on a few occasions. For all these reasons, The Last Worker is in my TOP 5 on PS VR2. For those interested, here it is:

With a bit more to say The Last Worker could’ve been a great game, but the paper thin plot and clunky controls hold back what is otherwise a stylish and unique time with or without VR. Hopefully there’ll be more to come from this world as it’s an interesting premise, but for right now it’s a decent couple of evenings spent.

The Last Worker's message is clear and certainly belongs to the narrative hard core of titles like Disco Elysium, Norco, Citizen Sleeper, Fallout.

The Last Worker is an enjoyable time, despite some flaws with its gameplay. The regular package handling sections are a lot of fun, especially when discovering the crazy contents within each one, but the stealth and hacking sections can get pretty frustrating. Thankfully, the story is compelling enough to overlook the gameplay shortcomings, and the performances are wonderful all around. If you’ve ever worked as a low employee for a large retailer, then The Last Worker will definitely speak to you on some level.

If you’re looking for an immersive but short indie game that you can perhaps play in a single weekend, The Last Worker is perfect for that. The themes explored in the game are timely, especially considering the rise of Amazon as a mega-corporation in the real world. So, in that regard, The Last Worker presents a hypothetical future where capitalism runs amok.

Plagued by excessive and all-too-frequent load times, the novelty and humor of The Last Worker often lose momentum

The Last Worker is yet another excellent example of the maturation process of the video game medium and the creative potential it offers, offering us a truly engaging - if short and linear - journey with memorable characters, capable of stimulating a reflection on sensitive and current issues. Recommended for anyone looking for a thought-provoking and different experience.
