  • Summary: (Currently available in the UK/EU only) To become a KAZooK super-star you have to make your way through the ultimate party games collection that can take you anywhere and bring to life your wildest dreams, or weirdest nightmares. Face killer Zombies, pilot out of control UFOs, fight with mad sweaty Sumo’s, cause mayhem at an outrageous pool party and encounter many other thrills and oddities. Kazook is a bizarre collection of 30 totally addictive mini-games set in a distinctly stylized world. With 16 wacky characters to choose from from cool skater kids to scary Goths, to hard-core gangster rappers and sexy beach babes - drive yourself crazy with excitement. 30 bizarre mini-games - simple shoot-em-ups to dance games, Fighting to Racing - Offering a variety of game styles, each with its own challenge – something for everyone. Take control of one of 16 characters – all-star rappers, skate-kids, wild Goths girls and cool street dudes among others as you take on the many challenges KAZooK has to offer. 3 solo game modes: Normal – Battle through each mini-game one-by-one, unlocking more levels and bonuses. Survival – Test your staying power – play through all the minigames, lasting as long as possible. Party – take on the challenge of completing all minigames to become the ultimate party superstar! Wi-Fi Multiplayer – 27 mini-games can be played 2 player using the PSP wi-fi feature and 6 can be played hot-seat on one PSP - beat, blast and race your friends. Are you KAZooK?

  1. Cheap, cheerful and a good laugh, even if it does lack a little longevity.
  2. Certainly won't make your PSP break a sweat, but the multiplayer options are good and we'd rather play this than yet another dull retro collection. [Christmas 2006, p.97]
  3. A tepid bundle of mini-games that fails to raise a laugh or even the pulse. [Dec 2006, p.100]
  4. 35
    To put it simply, if the idea of thirty very simple arcade games with no real objective other than good old fashioned high score setting appeals and you can put up with the strained atmosphere of craziness then you may get some fun out of this well presented but ultimately flawed collection.
  5. Kazook is ultimately about as appealing as your dad dancing at your own party. And nobody wants that.
  6. Kazook is nothing but a host of buzzwords and heavily stereotyped characters mashed clumsily together with unoriginal games that quickly plummet into a repetitive tedium.
  7. The games are irritating and forgettable, the scoring system is bizarre, the play modes make no sense and the constantly shrill urban-cartoon-hipster presentation feels like some ninja chav just injected a pint of boiling hot Red Bull into your eyeballs.
