Megaton Rainfall Reviews
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.
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 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.

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.
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 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.
A thunderously stylish arcade shooter with spectacle to spare, Megaton Rainfall is a must-have for PSVR owners.
Megaton's sixteen missions are still mostly a good time to play through.
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 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.
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.

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

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