Discovery Reviews

While Discovery boasts an enormous map and plenty of available resources, it suffers from a lack of originality and pales next to Minecraft. The game is also affected by several technical flaws and the lack of an online mode makes it less appealing, despite a competent local co-op multiplayer and an overall good presentation.

Discovery is that kind of 'meh' game that leans a little hard on unoriginal ideas. It's not that there isn't room for more games in the sandbox genre that Minecraft pioneered, but these games need to bring something fresh or innovative to the table if they are to stand a chance of forging their own identity. [OpenCritic note: Mitch Vogel separately reviewed the Wii-U (6) and Switch (5) versions. Their scores have been averaged.]

There isn't much to Discovery, but it's a really great building option for the younger audience.

As you build to explore and explore to build, Discovery is refreshing and with the grassy, desert and snowy lands, the TNT to blow things up and even digging and going through tunnels, there is nothing else like it right now on PlayStation VR.
