Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime Reviews
Here's the deal with Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime: As a single-player experience, the game drags. While your AI companion is actually helpful and surprisingly competent, having to man the ship on your own is a cumbersome and sometimes boring experience. The game takes on a whole different spin when a second person is involved, becoming a rewarding romp where players can celebrate successfully completing their shared goals. As a game meant for a couch co-op experience, it checks the right boxes and then-some as the two of you work to replace the anti-love in the room with something more positive, like love or perhaps a high-five. If playing on your own is the way you tend to roll, however, you'll still enjoy the game's presentation, but the luster of what moves this game from good to great territory will sadly not be present.
Surprisingly fun, both in single player and co-op mode, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a gem. The great co-op mechanic really encourages the players to work together and communicate, but never hinders a lone player. For those that want to grab a friend and take on a challenging experience, filled with gorgeous visuals and thoughtful gameplay, then Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is the perfect game.
The concerns I had when I played Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime at an Xbox event several months ago have been put to rest as this is a fantastic co-op experience.
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime does not feature the most common plot and the result is grand, as this is a marvelous piece of gaming that boasts fun and well-crafted gameplay that will quickly find its place in the heart of all players who pick it up. Remarkably, this game's single player experience does not lose out to the multiplayer experience, which only adds to its qualities and makes it even easier to recommend to everyone.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime caught us by surprise; we were expecting a great multiplayer party experience but ended up with something much more than that. If you have a great bunch of friends and the necessary controllers, be sure to gather everyone round for some challenging but hilarious teamwork. If you don't, or if you prefer playing alone, load the game up anyway and enjoy an intense, strategically-minded campaign with a warm and welcoming exterior. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime deserves to be played and should most definitely be on your eShop wishlist – we're in love, for sure.
Its bubblegum aesthetics may suggest otherwise, but this is a surprisingly hardcore affair that demands patience, constant communication, and dedication.
Asteroid Base's Lovers In a Dangerous Spacetime turned out to be worth the wait, perfectly blending elements from space shooters with a bit of strategy and throwing in some entertaining co-op as well. There are times it can be overwhelming – especially if you're going at it single player – but it's still an adventure you can't help but fall in love with.
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is one of the most unique games to come out in quite some time. In fact, the only thing keeping it from being a blast for everyone is its intense difficulty.

Both hardcore and novice gamers alike have likely found their match in Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. This is controlled chaos in a playable form, complete with all of the visual bliss that expected from a game with the silly title that it sports.
Fun as two, a chore as one
Just interesting in single player but exhilarating and crazy in multiplayer, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime surely is worth the download.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a great shooter that shines when played in local multiplayer, a feature really simple in the Switch version thanks to the two small Joy-Con mini-controllers. A game that deserve to be part of your game collection, despite a launch price maybe a bit high for a product already available a few months ago on other platforms.

It's a marvelous shooter that brings forth the best elements of cooperative play, as the action gets frantic, the difficulty ramps up, and even failure can result in a hell of a good time. If you have a few people to play with, Lovers is a fine addition to your Switch library, but even if you're all alone, you can pair up with a good computer-controlled puppy dog or cat and still have yourself a good time. This is an adorable, charming adventure - one that lovers of fine co-op game shouldn't miss.
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a very fun and colorful game you can enjoy on your own or with up to three other friends. Hectically changing between stations and using your space pet to help you control one station at a time while you focus on something else, or coordinating with your team as you try to find all space-bunnies in the area while keeping your ship in one piece.
Be sure to give this one a go as it's worthy of your time and money
