    Moving Out is a light-hearted approach to the art of furniture removal, and with the cute visuals, hilarious dialogue and story, and simple control scheme, Moving Out is a game that is accessible for anyone. The bonus level achievements and the Gold Medal collection will mean that each level has a certain amount of replayability as gamers chase down each of the achievements on offer. And with up to four players locally, the whole family can get into the fun-filled action (especially during a period of isolation). Moving furniture has never been so entertaining.

    Provided you’ve got at least one friend in tow to share the load and the laughs, Moving Out is an absolute blast. It takes a simple set of mechanics and milks madness and mirth from them in equal measures, consistently shaking up the parameters of its heavy-lifting assignments to keep you on your toes while you’re bending at the knees. Moving Out is the best way to get your mates to help you move house without having to owe them a case of beer afterwards.

    Couch co-op that’s equal parts cathartic and chaotic. There’s no better way to bond than by tossing a TV or two into oncoming traffic. Moving Out’s charming, physics-based gameplay and equally quirky levels demand you bring a friend or three.

    As an avid fan of the Overcooked series I am more than happy to see some additional representatives of the Couch coop genre – especially if they are as well-made as Moving Out.

    Moving Out is a joyous experience. The chaos is ever-present, but the chill approach ensures that everyone is having a good time instead of gradually wanting to tear each other apart. The number of levels is just right, and the presentation is appealing. It serves as a perfect complement to other co-op titles and belongs in the library of anyone who enjoys the genre.

    An accessible and fun local multiplayer experience, excellent if your'e looking for something to play with a younger brother. If you're looking for a more layered gameplay, though, better stick to Overcooked.

    Although the single player mode bored me to death, I found a lot of excitement in co-op. That, unsurprisingly, is what the game was built for. [07/2020, p.66]

    Moving Out is such a fun game to play as long as you have friends or family who enjoy communication games and just pure chaos. The game reallyMoving Out is such a fun game to play as long as you have friends or family who enjoy communication games and just pure chaos. The game really ends up all over the place with wacky things happening everywhere. The arcade modes are very enjoyable and the levels have a lot of flare to them keeping it fresh.

    The only problem is the local Co-op only multiplayer. However you could download Parsec which allows you to host the game and your friends can join as if they are local, or if you have it on Steam you could use Steam Remote Play Together. Both work well with maybe alittle lag with the more people involved.

    I made an account just to review this game so that has to mean something.

    My partner and I are big fans/masochists of 'designed to test your marriage' couch coop games after exhausting the last two Overcooked titles,My partner and I are big fans/masochists of 'designed to test your marriage' couch coop games after exhausting the last two Overcooked titles, and Moving Out seemed like a great title to continue onto. Just like how Overcooked took the act of cooking into video game form, true to its name Moving Out is focused on operating a moving company with the goal of as little damage to your client's furniture as possible. Easier said than done, since the physics and controls deliberately test your mental resilience.

    You'll probably want to high five your partner as many times as you want to wring their necks, since there's a high likelihood that you’ll be questioning why they went left instead of *obviously* moving right, just as much as they’ll be questioning your navigational sensibilities since you went right instead of left. Communication is key in these types of games, not just mentally projecting what your partner should *obviously* be able to read from your mind. You can’t do it all on your own, so Moving Out does a good job of making the key cooperative aspect fun and challenging.

    However, the satisfaction of the core gameplay loop is still a bit lacking when comparing a moving company to cooking. The rush and sense of achievement you get in Overcooked when you eventually improve to an army drill-like sense of teamwork and precision after cooking a ridiculously complex meal is powerful, while navigating a couch around a corner successfully just feels expected.

    Overall, the game features great, fun and cartoony graphics and a large amount of content, with a good sense of humour and a perfect, light escapist tone in these trying current times.

    Just don’t throw your controller at the wall in frustration. Also a great litmus test if you should move in together.

    A fun pastime that eventually gets repetitive due to the lack of features that should've been added in to spice things up as you progress.A fun pastime that eventually gets repetitive due to the lack of features that should've been added in to spice things up as you progress. Also, a game that is only playable in co-op, yet does not support online multiplayer. Best played in short bursts and shuffled amongst other party games.

    I received this game for free from an Epic Games giveaway, so I can't really complain, but I personally would not recommend paying $20 retail for the game. Wait until it goes on sale.

    Moving out seems like an interesting idea for a coop game but it's executed poorly.
    The game is suspiciously similar to "Overcooked!" but it's made by a different studio. The striking resemblance is increased even by details like wheelchair characters and most importantly the level select loby where you drive a vehicle around to pick a level.

    But unlike Overcooked Moving Out is a 100% brainless game. And that's the sole but major problem of this game. In Overcooked you have to make various meals based on different recipes while being pushed by time and equipment limits whereas in Moving Out you just move all object from a house to the truck and that's it. There's literally no need to think since the game doesn't give you any other challenge nor it penalizes you for damaging properties.

    To compare the experience with some similar games, it's if Overcooked had just one recipe consisted of only one ingredient throughout the whole game or as if "Papers, please" had just one information to verify.

    This game may have nice artstyle, animations, interesting heavily sarcastic humour or good transwhite pedophile bootleg music but the game is one huge chore to play and it's repetitive since the very first level.
    I guess this game falls into the "games to play with your girlfriend" category.
