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.
I would compare Clustertruck to a good Monty Python sketch: incredibly silly, beautifully charming and wonderfully crafted
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.
Clustertruck proves that first person platforming can be incredibly fun, and that not all games need a complex concept in order to keep players engaged.
Cluster Truck had me on the edge of my seat and also completely defeated at times, yet always having a blast in the process. Sounds like a win, win to me.
Few games have been as effective as Clustertruck at making me want “just one more try”.
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 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 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.
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' 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.
Clustertruck is a chaotic, fast, and fun first person 3D platformer that further proves that video games are far from out of ideas.
Clustertruck is one of those weirdly unique games that you cannot help recommend enough to others after you've had your first taste. This game isn't like a needle in a haystack, it's like one in a field of hay.
If you’re just looking to kill sometime with a fun game, or if you want to challenge yourself to becoming a master at it, Clustertruck has you covered.
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.
An offbeat twist on a gameplay classic, Clustertruck is brilliantly bonkers, and a lot of fun.
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.
Conclusion: Clustertruck is an addictive, fast-paced parkour platformer with great controls and a ton of challenging levels to race through. While it lacks a polish in some crucial areas, it’s easy to recommend this game due to how simply fun it is.
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.
