Critic Reviews for Lucky's Tale (VR)

There’s some charm to Lucky’s Tale’s simplicity. It’s not exciting, but it’s finely polished. Old-fashioned 3D platforming is still fun, especially some of the boss battles, which require more precise jumping and dodging than any of the more slowly paced levels. It’s just not remarkable, especially as a showcase for VR.

A fun, nostalgic platformer and a cool use of VR, but repetitive design makes its short length a boon.

Virtual reality has the potential to deliver a great action/platform experience. Lucky’s Tale isn’t it

Oculus Rift enhances the familiar platforming in Lucky's Tale, but the VR adventure fails to leave a lasting impression.

I was left wanting more with Lucky's Tale in the end. Each stage presents a fresh new idea, but those concepts are usually a half-measure, and the thrill is over in just a few scant minutes. As a VR experience though, Tale really sells the idea of 3D platformers, and I'd be very happy to play a fully-fledged sequel one day.

Lucky's Tale looks great and plays even better in this well-deserved remaster. With updated, crisp visuals and remastered sound, this is a game that will appeal to young (and young at heart) gamers. Not the longest, not the deepest, but still worth a look for the groundbreaking way it brought platformers to the VR era.

Lucky's Tale is not a traditional platform. Is the demonstration that Virtual Reality can enhance even the classic genres and speak its own interactive language. A great start for Oculus Rift's Line Up.
