Starlink: Battle for Atlas is the first game that I played after the E3 doors opened this year. I would be lying if I said that I was hugely excited prior to playing it, but I came away realising that this is the most ambitious Toys To Life game to date, and it’s actually pretty damn good.
The game differs from other Toys to Life games in the sense that your characters literally sit on top of your controller. From a far, this looked quite awkward, but I didn’t notice any discomfort when picking up the controller and it’s actually very clever. One of the issues I had with Toys to Life games was constantly getting up to change characters whenever they died. It made gameplay too much of a stop/start process for my liking. But with Starlink, It’s all right there in front of you meaning you can make changes on the fly without even putting down your controller.
