    A fun and admirable collection of multiplayer games that will bring people together. The only issue is that none of the games are compelling enough to ensure that they keep them coming back.

    With a low price, it may be worth splitting the cost between close pals for an evening’s worth of entertainment – just make sure that you know what you’re getting into first.

    It's a very uneven package in the sense that there could have either been a few more games and a few could have been better, but honestly -- $15 isn't a terrible price just for Joust alone.

    A collection of fun, forgettable mini-games, Sportsfriends demands local players but struggles to be the life of the party.

These are not just Warioware-esque mini games but full on multiplayer games with ALOT of depth. If you are having some friends over this is a must buy! Full Review »

There are only four mini-games on offer and they range from mildly entertaining for a short while (BaraBariBall) to completely pointless (Johann Sebastian Joust).

    The one redeeming feature is that the simplicity of the games does allow non-gamers to compete with more experienced gamers but there are so many better titles (Towerfall being a current favourite of mine) available if you are looking for something fun to play against friends and family in the same room.

Sportsfriends is a waste of time and a social side game, if you dont have hipster friends, then this is nothing to look for. their ability to bring a room together in one loud, if you dont like titles like Towerfall and Nidhogg then its nothing for you. i played pixelgames in the 90s, im sick of it. this compilation is a pleasant reminder of that power - and, just like its companions, Sportsfriends represents video games at their very, very weakest time.

    This is a waste of time ;)
