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, 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 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.

Megaton Rainfall is more of an experience than a game and one I soon won't forget.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 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 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.

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.

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 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.

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.
