Original, sometimes fun and, above all, it provides an experience that we haven't been able to try before without you feeling tied to a loading screen.

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.

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.

Megaton Rainfall is a very interesting brainstorming title, which would simply need to be polished. Still, it is not a bad idea to take a look at it if one likes to travel through space and launch waves of destructive energy.

Created by a one-person team based out of Madrid, Megaton Rainfall is, at the very least, a technical marvel. It's very much comparable to No Man's Sky; an indie hit that wows with its sheer scale and the breadth of its ambition. But much like Hello Games' oft-maligned space explorer, this superhero simulator struggles to maintain the impressive impact of its first hour, or live up to the lofty heights of those dangerously high ambitions.

Few games manage to properly capture the sensation of becoming a superhero, and for the most part those that do it best are often firmly grounded in reality, like the Arkham Series; even the Infamous games and those that do take a more fantastical approach to the genre are constrained by the fact that they're generally restricted to a single city. Megaton Rainfall gives you the entire planet to take care of and, while it can be an overwhelming responsibility at times, it's one that I find myself stepping up to time and time again.

Megaton Rainfall is an interesting, exciting and impressive indie game but it's repetitive gameplay and low polygon graphics really hurt it when compared to other virtual reality titles.

Megaton Rainfall is a game at odds with itself. It seems like it was built to be a VR title about being a superhero, but it lacks the hardware support on the PC to make that a reality. It tries to make you a more responsible superhero when it comes to protecting innocent lives, but the controls and lack of a good targeting system make it difficult to follow through. The game provides an open universe to explore but very few things to actually check out. In the end, Megaton Rainfall is a curiosity, and although it isn't a must-have title, it could be worth a look if the price is right.

Megaton Rainfall is based on a simple yet intriguing concept: making us feel like gods capable of flying at a super-high speed. And it succeeds in doing so. This, along with its refined and fresh gameplay, makes the game easy to recommend to anyone who has a Playstation VR.

It could be argued that, when you strip away all of the spectacle and flashy superpowers from the game, that Megaton Rainfall essentially boils down to being nothing more than a fancy UFO wave shooter, although this would be missing the point entirely.

In the end, Megaton Rainfall exceeded all my expectations, while a few more options would be appreciated for controllers, the gameplay itself is solid and gives plenty of replay value. Even getting it for the ability to fly like a superhero in VR is a solid reason.

Megaton Rainfall is not the most memorable game I’ve ever played. It’s repetitive gameplay and lack of an established narrative is its biggest downfall. Despite this it isn't a bad game, just lacking. If you’re a superhero fan or just fancy sticking it to some extra terrestrial invaders it's certainly the one you’re looking for. If you’re one for deep plot and engaging characters then you’ll probably want to sit this one out.

Megaton Rainfall is not a terrible game; for an indie superhero title, it does a lot of things great, but the problem is that the few flaws that it offers make one overlook all that it does great. Nonetheless, Megaton Rainfall succeeds in providing the best first-person superhero gaming experience that AAA studios have failed to deliver so far.

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

Megaton Rainfall is without a doubt a technological VR achievement, but the empty world and repetitive battles with aliens are pretty boring.

Megaton Rainfall is an interesting title, it hands the player overpowered abilities and a huge sandbox to play in but forces the player to restrain themselves by making collateral damage the key to success or failure. I had hours of fun exploring the universe, checking out landmarks and discovering secrets out in the galaxy between fighting off waves of alien enemies. Unfortunately I have to mark Megaton Rainfall down for its mission-breaking bugs, however this title is a refreshing experience and a fun one at that. I recommend just taking some time to sit quietly and absorb the experience that is Megaton Rainfall.

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 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 the first video game that genuinely made me feel like Superman. It just has a few rough edges to work out.
