    It is not a perfect game and we don't think it will become a classic, but if you enjoy this sort of games, Frobisher Says! will offer you plenty of hours of fun while you are discovering what PSVITA is capable of. A game worth a chance.
  2. As a means of getting both your head and hands around Vita and its multitude of interfaces, there's nothing better. Forget the pre-loaded Welcome Park – within a few minutes of loading Frobisher Says, you feel at home stabbing, smudging and shaking away at the handheld.

    A compelling mini-game compilation with the right dose of funny things to do. More than this it uses all the features of the PlayStation Vita and it's completely free.

    A miniature roulette wheel of mini-games where almost every segment is pure gold. [May 2012, p.100]

    Everything gets a laugh at least first time, followed by the satisfaction of figuring out how to do whatever you've been tasked with. The really stupid thing? This brilliant piece of idiocy is a freebie, available as a launch title for the pre-order crowd and then to everyone (for nothing) come May.

    Visually striking, hilarious, heart-warming and, most importantly, fun to play, we still can't believe that Frobisher Says is a free download. It may not have the substance or longevity of Uncharted or WipEout, but manages to maintain equal, if not better, replay value, ideal for short five minute bursts or social gatherings.

    Frobisher Says is an essential PS Vita download that perfectly shows off the console's various functionality.

    This is a fun little game, consisting of a rather large collection of minigames. It gets repetitive, though, and an annoying save system doesn't do anything to help save the day.

    As diverting as Frobisher Says undoubtedly is, we're not entire sure it will remain on your memory card by that point - especially if you have a 4GB or 8GB variant and are already pushed for storage space.

    This game would clearly benefit from a more rigid and thought-out structure for a start: focus for some of the better ideas found within.

    As a free download, Frobisher Says may not be a waste of your money, but there are many better diversions on Vita to occupy your time.

    Was enjoying it up to the point of where it wanted me to find something green with the camera. Being colourblind, the game needs an option to have a colourblind mode which you can turn off this one part of the game which otherwise, is a good bit of fun in small doses. Full Review »

    Extremely fun must-have game for Vita. You just feel the excitement to follow all opt-out instructions what the character Frobisher says. Fun game and highly recommended especially for this cheap price Full Review »

    This is truly one of the best games ever made that are based on minigames. Ones you start playing, there's no chance of lying the Ps Vita down, you just wanna go on and on and on and on and on! It's dangerouslu addicting and well worth anyone's time to play. If you have a Vita, BUY THIS GAME!!! Full Review »
