Totally Reliable Delivery Service
Top Critic Average
Totally Reliable Delivery Service delivers some silly fun in a package that's a bit rough around the edges.
Totally Reliable Delivery Service is a game that might provide passing entertainment to a group of friends for an hour or two; and the more challenging deliveries do generate some hilarious moments whilst making one ever more determined to try and complete them. But the novelty soon wears off, and there’s not really anything here that is likely to convince many to stay.
It’s the fundamental premise of the game to struggle, but putting in a dozen attempts just to throw a package on to the bed of a truck simply doesn’t feel rewarding when you’re working towards the same goal over and over again.
With a friend, there's enough humor in Totally Reliable Delivery Service to keep you laughing. Yet the aimless world, janky controls, and glitchy nature eventually fall flat.
Totally Reliable Delivery Service feels like a bit of a prank. It's a game so doggedly determined to annoy you with its infuriating control scheme, shocking graphics and poor implementation of DLC, we can't imagine anyone genuinely enjoying it.
The idea of an open world to explore and goof around with friends is hampered by awful controls, an empty world, tedious gameplay, and a boatload of glitches. There are far better options for party games on Switch that will give you much less frustration, guaranteed. While the aim was clearly to deliver a goofy package, it seems the package never quite arrived.
Totally Reliable Delivery Service has a good idea, but it was poorly delivered with terrible gameplay. With a proposal to be fun and funny, the game delivers only stress and irritation. The experience becomes not so bad with friends. Playing by yourself should only be considered if your objective is to be angry in front of a camera.

I definitely recommend Totally Reliable Delivery Service, so grab some friends and make those deliveries.
It's understandable that Totally Reliable Delivery Service doesn't aim to be a typical video game, where your purpose is just to deliver goods. The island the tipsy protagonist will explore is a gargantuan playground, where players are supposed to have fun with the over-amplified physics and cumbersome way it all controls. They are supposed to. They won't.
As a solo game, Totally Reliable Delivery Service falls flat but playing it with friends makes for a fun-filled cooperative formula.
