Journey to the Savage Planet in the test overview
Screen rant – 91
One of the most interesting and unique indie games to be released in a very long time. The game manages to blend together several different kinds of gameplay mechanics in a way that mostly makes sense. Even when the game gets slightly frustrating, it is still impossible not to marvel at the beautiful and hilarious world that Typhoon Games has created.

There's a lot to love about Journey to the Savage Planet (buy now for € 29.99) but most importantly, it reminds me why I started playing games in the first place: for fun. Journey to the Savage Planet offers a ton of enjoyment in both its gameplay and storytelling. Bravo to Typhoon Studios for kicking off 2020 with what might just be the sleeper hit of the year and mic dropping a brand new IP that shouldn't be missed.
PlayStation Lifestyle – 90
Journey to the Savage Planet is such a ridiculously zany and wonderful game. No matter how many times I die, whether it be to a monster I just didn't see or missing a grapple after grinding my way up the Spire, I look forward to returning to my corpse and giving it another go (and a proper burial ). Whether you play the game solo or with an online coop partner, I hope you enjoy your time on AR-Y 26 as much as I have.
Destructoid – 85
Journey to the Savage Planet was such a fun way to kick off the decade.
Hobby Consolas – 83
A really colorful, tongue-in-cheek adventure that offers many secrets to discover. Sadly, the balance in the challenges needs some tweaking.
GamePro – 81
Sometimes almost too colorful action RPG with a motivating Metroidvania principle and minor design flaws.
Everyeye.it – 80
It is a pleasure to rediscover today, arrived at the twilight of this generation, a title that enhances curiosity and sense of discovery; a product that, precisely in the name of its level design, the cooperative mode and its always inspired puzzles, lives beyond the end credits, sure to carve out a place in the hearts of all true videogame adventurers.
Press Start Australia – 75
Journey to the Savage Planet is a concise yet well focused adventure that channels the best bits of games like Metroid and Prey. Despite this, some unsatisfying combat and repetitive locales keep it from being the achievement that it could be.
SpazioGames – 75
Journey to the Savage Planet is an unpredictable adventure that knows how to amaze, entertain and make fun of capitalism.
IGN – 60
Journey to the Savage Planet is a game with a lot of nice ideas – trying to single-handedly twist a well-worn genre into new and exciting shapes – but ultimately doesn't quite have the courage to commit to them. There's a lot to enjoy, particularly in its opening hours, but for all its grand ambitions, Savage Planet ultimately falls back on tired ideas to see it through to an underwhelming end. Like the ship you're trying to repair throughout, it's an admirable thing, but it can't quite nail the landing.
USgamer – 50
Journey to the Savage Planet puts you in a brilliantly colorful world, and tasks you with exploring to your heart's content. The moment-to-moment exploration is enjoyable, but the act of combat offers very little in the way of a challenge. The score and insane FMV adverts give Journey to the Savage Planet a lot of personality, but the tiresome parody nature of the writing really lets it down.
