Astro’s Playroom isn’t just an introduction to the PS5. It is a charming and enjoyable game, even if it isn’t trying to redefine the boundaries of the platforming genre.

Transcending its role as an introduction to the PS5’s features, Astro’s Playroom is a quick and delightful celebration of PlayStation’s history.
