    Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is one of the most enjoyable online gaming experiences. With simple controls, heaps of fun, replayable mini-games and customisations (paid or won) that do not alter the gameplay, and a catchy background tune, Fall Guys has everything that causes addictive play. Indeed, even when you are eliminated, there is the immediate urge to hop back in and try your luck again. The only thing that lets Fall Guys down is the inability to play local matches against friends on your couch. The vibrant levels, with their inflatable-like obstacles and moving platforms wouldn’t be out of place on a TV game show. Indeed, I’m now looking forward to the Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout TV adaption, where players must don Fall Guy suits and compete in a similar series of wacky and enjoyable events. Until then, Fall Guys will be my multiplayer game of choice.

    Sharing Fall Guys with someone is ideal, but the laughs will come even when we're playing alone. This funny experience is enhanced by a visual style that could only be defined as eye candy and a simple, but catchy, soundtrack that makes us dance throughout the game.

    Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is extremely funny, goofy, and I have never stopped laughing while I play it. I can play it with my friends in the same round but it's a pity that I can't really co-op with them.

    Much like the game shows it's based off, Fall Guys isn't meant to be taken seriously, and there are few multiplayer experiences out there that so wholeheartedly put approachable, inclusive fun at the forefront.

    Fall Guys is addictively chaotic multiplayer mayhem, and the mid-season update delivers some great new features that add to its replayability.
  6. Fall Guys invites players to Wipeout style tracks with different characters. I can say that it is one of the most entertaining games of the year.

    Fall Guys has a decent foundation for creating some whacky multiplayer mayhem, but with so much of your success resting on luck, the lack of maps, and occasional server problems, the entertainment value rapidly dissipates.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game is like Wipeout but if you were playing as a small litlle marshmallow dude. This game is made to be easy to play, and hard to master (looking at you, See Saw) the servers can be a bit weird but just return to the main menu/confirm and you'll be good. Expand

    This game is very good, but there is some minimal bugs. Except for that, the game is almost perfect (It isn't because it's hard)

    Team modes ruin this game.

    Team modes ruin this game.

    Nearly every single mode in which you play by yourself is awesome and a ton of fun, and every single team mode without a single exception is absolute garbage. Unfun, unfair, frustrating garbage. Every. Single. One of them.

    What that results in is a game in which half the time you're have a ton of fun and the other half you're having a miserable time. Add that to the battle royale gameplay, which means you will frequently have excellent runs ruined by being placed in the losing team and being able to do **** all about it, and the overall experience takes a massive hit.

    If this game had an option to queue for a no team mode playlist, I could easily give it an 8 or 9 out of them, the only other significant problem being how repetitive the game is, but I don't feel like I'm being hyperbolic when I say the team modes ruin an otherwise awesome game.

    The recent update makes the use of Easy Anti-cheat compulsory - this breaks Proton support meaning it no longer works on my Linux system.The recent update makes the use of Easy Anti-cheat compulsory - this breaks Proton support meaning it no longer works on my Linux system.

    Furthermore, it also breaks the support for Ultrawide Monitors as this required the modification of a configuration file and such modifications are not permitted by the new anticheat.

    This mandatory patch has considerably lowered the value of the game to me, and I do not wish to support developers that believe they can simply worsen the player experience post-launch.

    Refund requested.

    UPDATE: Steam denied me a refund for the game despite the above changes, so now I am stuck with a game that no longer runs properly on my monitor, nor can I use it on my primary OS partition.

    I will not be purchasing from such anti-consumer and untrustworthy developers again.
