Top Critic Average
Doki-Doki Universe is unique and fun, even if it does get quite repetitive.
Doki-Doki Universe uses creation instead of destruction to progress through a rewarding, off-beat story. Some sticky challenges, load times, and other issues mess up its open-ended flow, but they can't keep a good robot down.
Cute and silly but also impressively insightful when it comes to ordinary people's wants and desires – even if those ordinary people are portrayed as talking sushi rolls.
The simple gameplay may be a turnoff, but Doki-Doki Universe emphasizes important qualities like empathy and communication that everyone should appreciate
Doki-Doki Universe is a simple game that uses humor and eccentricity to carry its warmhearted message.
Doki-Doki universe is a gleeful game of self-reflection
Doki-Doki Universe is a very odd, very cute, and very simple game. There isn't a whole lot to it, so don't go in expecting a deep and rewarding adventure title. So long as you don't mind spending an afternoon helping a tiny snowman bond with his father, Doki-Doki will be more than adequate.
From the creator of ToeJam & Earl comes a game about a robot searching for humanity. Doki-Doki Universe has players flying through twenty different planets, all in hopes of finding what makes humans tick. Meet more than a hundred characters and solve missions in this quirk, though terribly shallow, adventure game for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita!
Originally, I wasn't too thrilled with the game, but after giving it some time and exploring multiple planets, I can see the appeal and I actually enjoyed most of what I played. Just don't expect much action out of the experience and you'll be fine.
Doki-Doki Universe is a unique and quirky timewaster that unfortunately runs out of steam due to a lack of challenge and variety in its gameplay. While the colourful characters and brilliant art style keep it off the scrap heap, those craving a more involved experience would be better off summoning a different title to add to their collection.
