Void Crew Preview Cons:

  • So much to take in.
  • The tutorial is more vague than direct with its information.
  • It is very challenging in a single player.
  • You don’t have a lot of feedback or help when things go wrong or you feel lost like when you lose power for the first time.
  • Takes a while to get going.
  • The game is played out within self-contained levels and it feels kind of limiting.
  • You cannot do any character creation or edit your suit until you unlock them.
  • No third-person view.
  • The ship feels claustrophobic.
  • Playing with a controller is not great more because it’s a case of fiddly controls and guessing inputs.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
