Going at Chariot solo adds up to a competent and unique platformer that's satisfying, yet somewhat unfulfilling because of all the opportunity that's unfortunately necessary to pass up. However, once you have a friend in the mix, any concern dissipates and you're left with a memorable social experience that just happens to be almost flawless in its execution.
Chariot is one of the best cooperative gaming experiences we’ve ever had. It’s immensely rewarding, abundantly creative, and the sense of accomplishment that it instills within the player will lead to high-fives being thrown around the room on a regular basis.
I recently got my Xbox One. I never thought my favorite game would be a free Xbox Live Gold game! Chariot is making me feel like I'm in the 90's again, just having pure fun playing. If you loved 90's games, jumping around levels, fighting enemies, and performing moves with a few buttons, you're going to love this!
I have been playing this game today with my girlfriend and it is totally awesome. Love the story its fun and cute and the couch coop is something I am a huge fan of. Loved Guacamelee and Child of light and now loving this game. Also its free with games with gold so no reason if you have anybody at home wanting to game with you not to grab this game on Xbox One and game it up. Just love it and so far have zero complaints difficulty seems to move up with the game and I thought carrying a dead king would get cumbersome and boring but it's honestly one of the coolest elements I've used in any game.
Great coop, great puzzles and great fun.
with intuitive controls and a totally original premise this game stands out in the Indy world to me. fun and challenging puzzles with action packed platforming combined with a funny story and lively characters makes for hours of enjoyment in this breath of fresh air in a sea of stagnant repetitive gaming titles. if you own an Xbox one this game is worth every penny, though it was a free with gold title a few months back so you might have it in your library already and haven't touche it.
A fun puzzle based side-scroller that can be frustrating at times, but with the good very much outweighing the bad. Although this game is nothing truly amazing, it is fun and stylish enough to keep you playing and wanting to keep going. Between the unique visuals, fun puzzle solving, fitting music and the cheesy dialogue it's a very nice experience. I think the only things that would have gotten this game a higher rating is the ability to co-op online other than the only option being local play SINCE nearly ever map on this game has at least one spot that requires two players to unlock everything there is to find.
Good couch co-op games are rare these days - but Chariot is here to the rescue. It's a fun, charming and an even more challenging experience together with a friend. And if I say challenging, I mean challenging. Already in the very first levels you'll come across very puzzling parts if you want to go for all collectibles. Partly this is also because the game does not the best job in explaining it's mechanics to you and sometimes, you'll learn some controls later than you would have already needed them - but this is only an issue in the early stages.
While possible and still fun, I wouldn't recommend playing it alone. You won't be able to explore all areas alone and it is also only half the fun - which, to be fair, is still a lot of fun, though. But I highly recommend to grab a friend for this game.
Having said that, my only real issue with the game is, that despite the focus on cooperative play, Xbox Achievements are only given to the main profile, but not to your coop partner. It's very fustrating for the 2nd player to see all the achievements for the hard work are only popping up only for P1. I asked the very friendly and responsive devs if they can fix this and they promised to look into it - hopefully, we will see a fix for this.
Anyway, Chariot is highly recommended for everyone looking for a funny little couch coop game that is also challenging enough that you will really feel good when you solve puzzles together!
SummaryChariot is a humoristic physics-based couch co-op platformer in which a brave princess and her suitor carry a funeral wagon through ancient caves, fending-off swarms of looters while amassing riches, to bury the King's remains in a worthy gold-filled tomb.
