    Sportsfriends is one of the necessities every gamer must have in their arsenal.

    A superb mini-game compilation that’s as addictive and raucously entertaining as it is ugly, with Johann Sebastian Joust blurring the lines between video and parlour game.

    Sportsfriends is a celebration of the social side of games, their ability to bring a room together in one loud, raucous moment and how they're so much more fun when enjoyed with company. Alongside like-minded titles such as Towerfall and Nidhogg, this compilation is a pleasant reminder of that power - and, just like its companions, Sportsfriends represents video games at their very, very best.

    Sportsfriends hardly feels like a video game, and that's what makes it so special. It's an experience that anyone can enjoy, regardless of their gaming experience, totally irrespective of their specialty at sports or team-based games.

    Sportsfriends is one of the most dynamic and addictingly deep local multiplayer games I’ve ever played.

    To complain about that would be missing the point, though. 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 ;)

    Game is a complete blast to play. Obviously you need atleast 1 other player but every game is different and completely hilarious and well built. 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 »
