    Boring chaos

This is snakeball... except sadly youll be playing either coach co op or with ai as the online is dead even with playstation giving this game away for free with playstation plus... Here you start with choosing 1 of 16 characters and a color.. Then you choose one of 10

    This is snakeball...
    except sadly youll be playing either coach co op or with ai as the online is dead even with playstation giving this game away for free with playstation plus...
    Here you start with choosing 1 of 16 characters and a color.. Then you choose one of 10 different game modes…
    But actually they’re all basically the same...
    There are colorful balls all around the map for you to collect and score into the middle of the arena before time runs out...
    All while doing this against 3 other players trying to do the same thing…
    in most of the game modes taking out a player will net you 500 points…
    You can take out a player by grabbing as much balls as possible to become longer making it easier for them to run into you... but of course this makes it easier for you to run into the mines that will randomly pop up in game...
    But there are also weapons around that you can grab to blast players…
    Snakeball is complete chaos but not in a good way...
    Its chaos without direction…
    it feels like you’re a chicken running around with its head cut off...
    Other than weapons youre able to boost for a short period of time to stop this game fom feeling like slugball..
    But unfortunately for the most part it does thanks to this boost running out way too quickly...
    I feel like the boost should be infinite and up to the player to choose to be reckless or not..
    Or you move way too slow on your own…
    |Snakeball is just not fun...
    I was hoping this would be a neat hidden gem in the psn graveyard
    but it’s not...
    It’s bad, and even for free not worth the download
    I give Snakeball
    a 4/10

    This game is too complicated to be a party game. You can't just pick it up and play, no everyone should play the tutorial first, and even then it's pretty complicated. Not recommended.

  1. There are loads of gameplay modes for your money - including online multiplayer for up to eight players, specific puzzle-style challenges, and a classic survival mode where you have to nosh as many balls (wahey etc) as you can before you gobble your own tail (wahey etc).

    Controlling the snake is just awkward with the stick, and the design style is a bit meek. [Issue#159, p.97]

    Note to Sony: next time, just make us a game where we can chuckle at our distended faces. It's funnier. [Dec 2007, p.113]
