Megaton Rainfall pulls off some feats and squanders others, but one's thing's for sure: there's no other superhero game like it.

Megaton Rainfall is a game of incredible scale and there aren't many titles that let you go off exploring a large universe quite like this, when you aren't blasting alien invaders out of the sky. In VR it is quite a spectacle, though that can't shield it from the fact that it's quite a basic shooting gallery experience whether on TV or in VR. Megaton Rainfall is very much worth checking out if you have VR, but even without that side of things you have a decent enough superhero simulator.

The best Superman simulator ever done, but without Superman. It may be better with a bit more budget, but as it is, is still an outstanding proposal that work almost as fine on consoles as on VR.

Megaton Rainfall lasts only 2-3 hours and in VR mode the motion sickness can be overwhelming, but still it's a very funny game in god-like style and the pace is simply wild.

The most bizarre combination of ambition and the complete lack of it in one game. Astonishing, but flat.

At its heart, Megaton Rainfall is a solid superhero score-chaser that understands the freedom of flight, and empowers the player with a myriad of interesting abilities. Random difficulty spikes and a painfully generic design do hold this game back from being the best that the genre has to offer, though. On top of that, Megaton Rainfall, specifically on Switch, falls victim to a series of unacceptable technical issues which both mitigate Megaton Rainfall's strengths, and aggravate its weaknesses. In its current state, it is impossible for me to recommend this game.

The idea of a superhero FPS sounds great on paper, but an intriguing story and a cool concept cannot save Megaton Rainfall from being a subpar action shooter; one that fails to realise the potential of the genre.

Megaton's sixteen missions are still mostly a good time to play through.

A thunderously stylish arcade shooter with spectacle to spare, Megaton Rainfall is a must-have for PSVR owners.

Megaton Rainfall is an incredible accomplishment, but not one that we particularly liked to play. The sense of scale is outstanding – and it's even more impressive with PlayStation VR – but the cumbersome combat grates almost as badly as its cringe-inducing storyline. It would appear that even being a literal god isn't all it's cracked up to be.
