Megaton Rainfall Reviews
A thunderously stylish arcade shooter with spectacle to spare, Megaton Rainfall is a must-have for PSVR owners.
While Megaton Rainfall may have bitten off more than it can chew in regards to the stage it takes place on, the alien-fighting action is a fantastic spectacle.
What you may not know is that Megaton Rainfall was created by just one person, Alfonso del Cerro, over a five year span. This part is very true including the engine. So just take that in for a minute. One dream…one person and the result is one of the best super hero games to ever grace our presence.
Megaton Rainfall is, in more ways than one, the perfect superhero simulator, making players understand that special powers can do way more harm than good. With a short but very sweet campaign, an engaging story, and a good gameplay variety, Megaton Rainfall is a new take on the arcade shooter genre that no fan of the genre should pass on.
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.

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.
Megaton Rainfall is more of an experience than a game and one I soon won't forget.
Megaton Rainfall checks the immense power of a god with the civil responsibility of an altruist. It's a strong pairing, and one that only fails through the volatile application of its singularity. Playing god can be exhausting when you're only capable of indistinct destruction.
Megaton's sixteen missions are still mostly a good time to play through.
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.
Megaton Rainfall is the first video game that genuinely made me feel like Superman. It just has a few rough edges to work out.
Megaton Rainfall pulls off some feats and squanders others, but one's thing's for sure: there's no other superhero game like it.
Overall, Megaton Rainfall is a very enjoyable title from a clearly talented developer
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 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.
Megaton Rainfall is without a doubt a technological VR achievement, but the empty world and repetitive battles with aliens are pretty boring.

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