Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good at showing off VR capabilities
A good test to see what VR and the Vive are capable of nut more than a proof of concept due to the available gameplay.
Pro Funny gameplay
Lots of humor is included in the game, making for an enjoyable experience for those that appreciate slapstick.
Pro Comes free with the Vive bundle
Comes free with the Vive bundle, which is a bundle with no additional cost, but has limited stock, so may be difficult to obtain.
Pro Plenty to do
First there are the objectives for each of the 4 jobs available, which usually in total take about two and a half hours to three hours. Once you finish that you get three modes you can add on to any of the jobs, being, bouncy mode, zero g mode, and dollhouse mode. There is also lots of things to mess around with and small things that make it great, such as being able to copy your hand or brain in the copy machine.
Con Really simple gameplay
While the game does require both Vive controllers to be used, more often than not only one will be in use. On top of this the games found within are all simple tasks, such as layering sandwich ingredients one by one or stamping resumes of employees that need fired. Basically all the games within are take object from point A to point B, which many be a bit too simple for some.
Con Not much replayability
Once each mini game has been played through, there is not much incentive to continue playing. While it does service as a nice proof of concept to show off to friends, the lasting appeal of this game is basically zilch.
