    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!

    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 pleasantTo complain about that would be missing the point, though.

    This is a waste of time ;)

    The best local-multiplayer game ever created. Everything about this game is so well done. The menu's feel smooth and well though out. The game play is top notch. Go out and download this gem today!

    Tried this out for this first time tonight with 4 players, it's really a fun local co-op game worth picking up imo. Now comes the meh stuff about it. The 4th mini-game "Hokra" is not really too fun if you're playing with people that don't game a lot, just kind of quiet and dull. Another problem is it can be a pain to follow your character sometimes, could use a better indicator for sure.Tried this out for this first time tonight with 4 players, it's really a fun local co-op game worth picking up imo.

It'll probably last for about an hour or two of fun each play session, good replayability. Don't really want to go into details with the mini-games because they can be tough to describe. Now It would improve a lot if there are going to be updates coming with new mini-games. Expand

    Sportsfriends is one of those games where I just can't understand all the hype. 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

    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.

    You'll need a sackful of Sony toys to get the most from it, but this delivers hours of ridiculous enjoyment. [Aug 2014, p.64]
  3. Local co-op lives on thanks to the unbelievably enjoyable Sportsfriends. [July 2014, p83]
