Top Critic Average
Spuds Unearthed has a lot of cool elements, but they unfortunately don't add up to a very compelling game. Plagued by overly complex interface elements and a very flimsy structure, the core gameplay just isn't interesting enough to keep players coming back for more.
Spuds Unleashed was not a bad game, in fact, I grew to somewhat enjoy it. I just feel it took too long to get to grips with the controls and the aiming was sometimes too inaccurate to be enjoyable. If you persevere you can get over this issue, I just feel most people will be put off well before then.
While Spuds Unearthed isn't the worst VR experience out there, it is certainly one to avoid.
There's a core gameplay loop that could have some substance, but it's surrounded by a confused interface, a simply awful tutorial, with surface-level complexity that needn't exist.
Spuds Unearthed ultimately fails in all respects.
It surely offers quirky and fun gameplay but Spuds Unearthed is held back by its simple structure that doesn't really go the extra mile.
