Some games are so good that can set the bar and serve as a benchmark for other games, and some games are so bad that can do the same but in the other direction. Jumanji falls into the second category though, as it is so bad in everything that can be considered a benchmark for bad games. Maybe the only positive thing about Jumanji is that it is so short that whoever is playing it will not suffer for a long time.

What's most frustrating about Jumanji: The Video Game is that the developers had the opportunity to take the fun premise of the movie and turn it into an equally entertaining game.

Might just be the worst game of the generation in my eyes. Very boring and dull gameplay. Graphics are early PS2 level. The voice acting is mind-numbingly dreadful. The performance is abysmal. I've had multiple crashes, countless frame drops and multiple freezes. I could list 1,000 more reasons why this game is so bad. What really disgusts me the most is that they're charging $40 for this dysfunctional crap on the store. It's a low effort cash-grab and nothing more. Don't buy it, even when it eventually does go on sale.
