    Chasing Aurora is a Competitive Party Game that does not work. The weakness of the gameplay structure and a not involving single player made every effort useful. A bad game to stay away from.

    what most reviewer don't tell is that chasing aurora is a really really fun local multiplayer game. it's hard to describe the kind of fun situations that emerge. basically you pass around the gamepad, so that everybody in the round gets to be the priviledged bird. there are multiple games where the gamepad bird chases the others or is chased. this leads to a lot of shouting and pointing, as the non-gamepad players try to coordinate their efforts. in the end, it's hillarious and exhausting, a rare type of game that engages the players in much more communication than usual. i refuse to give it 10 points as i would expect a little bit more single player content for that price; then again, i rarely ever give 10/10 points for anything :) Full Review »

    I bought this game on sale, so for the price I give it a high review. Im not sure if its worth full price though.

    That said, the local
    multiplayer is the real fun here. Dont buy this if you dont plan on playing with friends. The single player is bland and forgettable, even boring. There really is nothing new to offer after about 30-60 minutes of play.

    The multiplayer makes this game wonderful. Its very hectic and fun. the other reviewer named frz did a good job of describing it.

    I would also add that I love the art direction and soundtrack. Its certainly a well crafter and beautiful game if nothing else!
