Review: For those who have never heard of it before ‘Final Space’ is an animated sci-fi series on Netflix about an astronaut named Gary and his planet-destroying sidekick called Mooncake embark on serialized journeys through space in order to unlock the mystery of where the universe actually ends and if it actually does exist. The game itself does a great job of transferring these 2D cartoon characters into 3D ones and on the whole, the game looks OK and there are many things here people of the show will love. But at the end of the day, it is just a pretty short generic wave shooter and unless you hit the multiplayer side of things hard you will struggle to get your money’s worth here. Its not as if it looks any better than the Oculus Quest version either.

As with all of these types of games if you get a good load of friends or random strangers on the multiplier side of things you will have a great laugh and mess about and probably even get your money’s worth. But the lack of players already is not a good sign for this games long-term future and when it comes to the single-player side of things it is a little lacking. ​I wasn’t a fan of the show, so maybe I am biased towards the gameplay, however, I do still recommend it, but I would wait for a sale price if you can.
