Review: Astro’s Playroom is an unmissable tribute to PlayStation’s history

Astro’s Playroom is both DualSense’s killer app and an unmissable, imaginative tribute to PlayStation’s history. Games have never felt this satisfying.

  • One of the best launch games in years.
  • Incredible use of haptics makes DualSense feel next-gen.
  • One of the greatest platform tributes outside of Smash Bros.
  • Imaginative gameplay and worlds full of personality.
  • You’ll be left wishing it was twice the size.
