Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality Reviews
The length issue really does hold back Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. The time spent in game accomplishes exactly what it should: it's entertaining with plenty of funny moments. Being so short, however, gives the final product an air of disposability. There aren't any reasons to revisit the game when it's done, except to goof around with random things in the garage and maybe slap Rick around again. The actual contents of this offering deserves recognition; there just needs to be more. Nothing is more frustrating than getting into a groove with something only for it to end before it feels finis….
Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality's irreverence reminds me a lot of JazzPunk, but more grounded and less adventurous, with all of the good and bad a structure like that entails. It takes a little while for the comedy to ramp up (which, in a short game isn't ideal), but when it does, it hits all the right marks. Hopefully a follow-up will take us to more exotic locations and double down on a few of the tougher puzzles.
The jokes and references are funny, but the gameplay is too shallow to be engaging
Virtual Rick-ality does a great job emulating the dark humor of the source material, even if it occasionally overindulges in its self-awareness. Smart use of well-established VR minigame mechanics guides you through the experience, and aside from some slight issues navigating the space on a two-sensor Oculus Rift setup, these familiar and fun activities mesh well with the amusing efforts of the writing team and cast. Rick & Morty's first foray into virtual reality is not only a solid VR experience, but the duo's strongest attempt at translating the spirit of the show into a game yet.
A short but sweet experience that hopefully sews the seeds for more Rick and Morty VR adventures, though a lower price would be nice next time.
There's absolutely nothing new to push Virtual Reality and roomspace VR forward in Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality, and it is painfully short with little replay value. Those indictments aside, it's a must-have for anyone who enjoys the dark humor of the show. Perhaps we can Get Schwifty with another run at VR with a longer run time and harder puzzles in the future.
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a short experience, but it delivers on almost all of its promise. Those with a VR headset and little to play will find a lot to enjoy here, even if it's over far too soon.
While very short, fans of the show will love being able to move around and interact in the world of Rick and Morty.
For Rick and Morty fans with cash to burn, this is still quite a fun experience. For most other gamers, though, I’d highly recommend waiting for a price cut or sale.
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is an odd game to say the least, but it has the potential to pull in two different sets of audiences. The first is of course, those who are fans of the Rick and Morty show. Those who enjoy Job Simulator should also find a lot to like about this title in Virtual Reality. While it is a little light on content, what is here is well-made and a lot of fun.
Rick and Morty's trip into Virtual Reality offers the same humour and charm that Roiland pushes into the show. At times the limits of VR push against the game's creativity which can leave areas of the game feeling like a list of chores.
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality throws players into madcap mad scientist Rick Sanchez’s meticulously recreated garage-lab to explore its every filthy crevice.
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is the must-play game for fans of the show that own a VR headset.
Virtual Rick-ality celebrates the existential comedy and breathless sociopathy of Rick and Morty. Like Job Simulator, it excels at creating natural space and filling it eccentric objectives and impulsive mischief. As a Rick and Morty product and a true second-generation VR title, Virtual Rick-ality is a comfortable calamity.
Virtual Rick-ality offers fans the typical humor and a great recognition value, but can also convince in terms of gameplay.

It's Job Simulator with a coat of nihilistic, irreverent paint. It's fun, funny and indulgently self-aware. It's undoubtedly a must-have for fans, but like the character you play as, it's a disposable clone.
Rick y Morty console's debut is a VR game that faithfully recreates the animated series' humor and spirit... but in a limited way. The game will last you only 2-3 hours and, even with end game content, it probably won't hook you up (most of it it's minigame repetition). Also, if you have played Job Simulator, "déjà vu" it's guaranteed...

Fans who love the show now have a VR game that brings them as close to the action as they've ever been. Becoming Rick's slave to yell at has never been so much fun.
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is another hilarious creation by Justin Roiland and Owlchemy Labs. It brings the world, characters, and humor of Rick and Morty to life in a way that you simply can't experience outside of VR. It's relatively short length is easy enough to complete in a single VR sitting, but aside from Easter eggs for hardcore fans and difficult challenges for completionists (good luck with the battery), there aren't a lot of reasons to jump back in to play it again once Rick and Morty vanish through that portal for the last time. Virtual Rick-ality is for those who love Justin Roiland's style of humor. Others might find some moderately intriguing puzzles and fun object interactions, but the humor and licensed content are the central constructs that really justify the purchase.
