    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

Pure unadulterated fun. I have not had this much fun in a while with a game. Although the only thing keeping me from a perfect score is the server issues. But that will be fixed in due time. Other than that this is an awesome game. If you have a pc or ps4 with PS Plus you have to try this game. Expand

For example Door Dash or Tip Toe. Your start position also matters, especially in See Saw, where if you start too far away you have great chances to fall in the first set of platforms and even lose the game right from the beginning without a way to recover. Also people with ping higher than 80 will struggle to win in modes that involve interacting with other players like Tail Tag and its variations (the team version of Tail Tag and the final one that I don't remember the name of it), in your POV it'll look like your opponents are able to steal your tail while being a reasonable distance away from you but still manage to get the tail while you have to come really close for the server to count the grab. tl;dr great concept but kinda poor gameplay experience in the end. I really hope that in a month or so I'll be able to raise my score for this game at least to nine if they fix all the stuff that I've described in this review. If you want a game that's fun and where you can randomly win by just playing and not tryharding then why are you still reading? Expand

    It is fun, however you are paying 20 bucks for what's essentially a Freemium game. The concept is very funny but I feel like it has so muchIt is fun, however you are paying 20 bucks for what's essentially a Freemium game. The concept is very funny but I feel like it has so much unused potential. For example, there's a remarkable lack of variety when it comes to stages and music. I've played the game for about an hour now and stuff just keeps on repeating endlessly. I also think that the game would be more fun if you could actually hit each other, or maybe use Mario Kart-like items on each other. Just more ways to actually interact besides just falling onto and grabbing each other.

    On the plus side, I had absolutely no problems with the matchmaking, though the game was a little laggy sometimes.

    I actually got a refund for this on Steam. As I said, the game is fun, but, from what is on offer here and how it incorporates microtransactions for cosmetics, it should be free-to-play.
