Clustertruck is a solid package that can be unappealing to those who are uninterested by the concept. But if you're willing to look past its flaws, it's a solid product that’ll last you a varying amount of platforming fun.

This might easily be one of the most absurd titles on the Switch thus far but by balancing platforming physics puzzles with intense first-person arcade action, Clustertruck is highly recommended.

Clustertruck does many things right. If you like the trailer, you'll enjoy the game. The controls are somewhat wobbly at first but with enough patience you'll surely have a lot of fun. Unfortunately the game is kinda short so it's best to wait for a sale.

Overall, Clustertruck is a fun, addictive game with plenty of content. It's also quite challenging and, although it won't suit everyone, there's enough to keep interested players busy.

I loved my time with Clustertruck. While its premise might be simple, there’s plenty of depth and lots of replay value in this arcade-style release. The rush you get from landing that final jump that takes you over the finish line, or the feeling you get when you are launched sky high after grabbing onto a truck’s back and jumping just right, is highly addictive and will keep you coming back for more. So if you’re looking for an action-packed PlayStation 4 release, I hope that my Clustertruck review has shown you why this is a great game to add to your collection.

If anything, Clustertruck is a simple, novel idea fleshed out and turned into a viable game. At its current price, it’s also worth every penny, and I can see myself using this for study breaks, a filler game for listening to podcasts, and that’s not counting my current strive to get to the top of the leaderboards.

Clustertruck is exactly what it’s aiming to be. It’s fun, fast, and fluid, letting you lose hours trying and trying to jump just right, to move just fast enough. The custom maps that the community has already made and sent out into the world are sure to provide plenty of replayability, complementing the great levels that come with the game.

While there’s no doubt that Clustertruck can be an extremely aggravating experience at times the good news is that while failure often comes quickly you’ll also then be right back in the action. I think if there were a longer delay as everything reset itself the frustration would kick in much harder but since you’re pretty well immediately back in place to take another shot the game doesn’t give you much time to sulk. Then, when you finally do manage to pull off an insane series of jumps and moves, the feeling of accomplishment is quite exhilarating and not quite like anything else I’ve played on the system. If you’re down for something a bit unorthodox and fresh I easily would recommend giving it a chance.

Clustertruck posits a world in which a mysterious force must fashionably break the will of a congregation of sentient eighteen-wheelers whom do not care if they live or die. This is exactly as fun as you think it is. A detectable absence of precision and available control may disappoint those hoping for a more air-tight platformer, but also this game is called "Clustertruck." It performs as advertised.

Overall, though, as a lover of both difficult platformers and the aforementioned trucks-in-games philosophy, I found myself smiling wide about what Clustertruck does right. It’s a no-nonsense, no-frills approach to skill-based gaming, and conquering even one of its many themed worlds is sure to make you feel comfortable with your purchase.

'Clustertruck' does for jumping what 'SUPERHOT' does for shooting. It boils down the genre into a distilled form, with very few bells and whistles. It doesn't really need the bells and whistles, and manages to more or less avoid the tedium for a long time solely by virtue of its immaculate platforming.

Features like Twitch integration with vote-based modifiers are sure to keep Clustertruck active in the streaming community for a good while, and I look forward to seeing even more insanely difficult user-created content as time goes on. I’m definitely not going to be the one to complete it, but I’d love to watch someone try.

Clustertruck stands as a metaphor for life itself. Where do these trucks come from? Where are these trucks going? None of that matters now that you can play this game anytime, anywhere free from the tyranny of non-portable entertainment centres. An exquisite balance of arcade first-person action and physics puzzle that leaves little but one single course of action when faced with a glimpse of its pure brilliant absurdity: Keep on (cluster)truckin', baby!

Clustertruck just about gets everything right. The high price kind of puts me off, but the game makes up for it with creativity and the ability to share user content. Sadly, the campaign ends on such a downer that I was more frustrated than anything. At least the game was hilariously fun for 90% of it's duration.

Clustertruck debuts on Switch retaining the "pure platform" vibe from the PC version, with the core mechanics working like a charm in portable mode. The "jump over trucks" seems silly at first, but all the variations make it interesting till the end. It's a shame that, as in other console versions, the leaderboards and level editor are missing.

Clustertruck is an endorphin rush. While some of the rules at play feel too erratic and the visuals aren't quite the most exciting thing in the world, it seems almost frugal complaining about it. It's not really the point. The point is you have stepped into a traffic jam turned maelstrom, and it's fun to mess around in it.

Clustertruck is a simple idea but a really entertaining one. What it lacks in depth or missing features, it makes up for in sheer laughter – every attempted run a mash-up of drunkenly driven trucks, unexpected situations and death-defying risks. Snappy, exciting and sometimes frustrating, Clustertruck is a welcome addition to the eShop library and has me eager to see what publisher TinyBuild has in store for Switch owners next.

My personal frustration with Clustertruck shouldn't take away from the game. Landfall and tinyBuild made a good game, even if there were times that I thought they'd owe me either a Switch or a TV. And I had plenty of occasions in which I nailed a tricky series of jumps or managed to overcome a tough level and felt amazing. The run eventually comes, and if you can tolerate not knowing when that is, Clustertruck could be for you.

Clustertruck starts well and promising, but the level of fun starts to drop as the stages go by, reaching a point where it becomes more irritating than fun. The premise, however, is interesting, and it's possible to get a better enjoyment of the game playing it in small sessions.

There is not much to Clustertruck, yet for a game with that kind of title, it is far more enjoyable than it would suggest. This is a silly, arcade-style guilty pleasure that manages to delivers a satisfying laugh and not much else. There is not much substance here, but there is enough that does put it above most Youtube-bait schlock, since it does have a thoughtful rising challenge and unlockable abilities that can offset the unpredictability of the physics engine.

There's no doubt that my capacity to enjoy Clustertruck was affected by the lack of an invert Y axis option but really, how difficult is it to add something like that? If you play games the "normal" way, you might like Clustertruck a bit more than I did but even then, I'd imagine its novelty value would soon wear off and quickly be replaced by repeated feelings of frustration.

Clustertruck is an okay game that has the player jumping from truck to truck as a cluster of semis destroy themselves, careening through eight different worlds with increasingly difficult obstacles along the way. Abilities and utilities that are earned along the way can make the game easier, but it will still take a lot of repeating levels to make one's way through the game. While it's a fun for a while, the game soon becomes frustrating and repetitive, especially for those of us who aren't great at jumping.

The frustrating chain of trial and error will bring about a swift choice to give up on this strange platformer, more so because the game suffers from a serious case of incompleteness, reflected in multiple glitches and falls through the textures. Add to that sometimes unpredictable command behavior and we get a complete package, ready to be avoided while we dedicate our time to something else.
