    Cake Bash has provided my family and I the most fun we've had in front of the telly all year. It's a wonderfully enjoyable and completely hilarious party game, one that is accessible to all players. The argument can be made that it's a little light on content but then isn't that that the way with the best of cakes? Sweet, delicious, moreish and gone all too soon.

    Cake Bash is a delightful party game with a good variety of minigames and unlockables. Couch based as well PSN multiplayer is a given, this deserves to be played by many.

    Cake Bash is a party game pure and simple. It’s designed to be easy to pick up but utterly engaging while you play it. The range of silly arenas found us smacking eclairs across garden tables while a hungry pigeon snacked on unfortunate fondants. I eagerly whacked my partner with a lollipop all to stop them filling a trifle bowl full of fruit, and I burned my flan more than a few times. The entire idea of Cake Bash is ludicrous and far from complex but the execution is top tier. Cake Bash is a flawlessly fun party game that would make any master patisserie proud. My only real complaint for the head chef, if I could find one, is that this is a snack rather than a family-sized assortment.

    A delectable morsel of saccharine sweetness that everybody can enjoy, Cake Bash is that rare kind of party game that is instantly accessible and can fit into just about any gap in your schedule. An easy recommendation for players of all ages who just want to feel their faces crease again.

    With a variety of entertaining games, some lively stages, and good replayability, it’s a fun experience, especially with friends. We only wish there was more of it on offer. Though some minigames feel a little finicky, it’s otherwise a sweet treat all around.

    Cake Bash delivers on both style and substance, the game is extremely cute and fun to play. The unique variety of mini-games keeps players engaged and allows Cake Bash to stand out from the crowd. The only downside is that the single-player experience may become a bit boring once you’ve mastered the gameplay. However, Cake Dash is a great party game to play locally or online, and is a refreshing take on these styles of games. If you are looking for a new way to connect with your friends or family, I think this would be an excellent choice. Cake Bash is as sweet as it looks.

    Each of the games are fun for what they are, but unfortunately there's just not quite enough going on. The rounds are over quickly, and there's not a huge variety, meaning you'll probably have your fill before long. It's a well crafted game that looks and sounds great, but there just isn't an awful lot to sink your teeth into. For an evening or two of candy-flavoured fun playing online or off, this is an entertaining treat — it's just something you'll want to snack on sparingly.

    Pretty Sweet
    Cake bash is a 4 player mini gm based competitive game that can be played either local or online and here you play as a pastry of your choice with only one goal, to become the tastiest…
    Be the tastiest pastry by the end of this 20 minute series of mini games…
    And for the most part I had n absolute blast with this game…
    Each round the players vote on a game to play, all of which youll be chasing highscores, but some youre taking on the game, and some youll be taking on the other 3 players..collecting jelly beans, bashing eachother to knock them off, breaking fortune cookies, throwing in barries to a pie, roasting marshmallows, just to name a few..and dependant on how you do, youll earn coins that can be spent when it comes time to do some topping shopping, and this is how you become the tastiest, savin up for the best toppings and collecting 3 of those topping to upgrade it to a topping worth more points, and whoever has the most points by the end of the game wins.. with robots this is very easy to do, but when real players get involved there is tons of strategy at play here.. for starters the first player to win the first game has the ultimate advantage as they will be the only person during the first shopping stop to be able to afford the most expensive topping if one is available, already putting them onto the path for success, however there is a little luck machine on the side for those not as fortunate.. theselittle mystery balls cost half os much as a regular topping but can rewardyou with not only regular toppings, but even the most expesive topping for a fraction of the price, so if youre down on your luck, you have that machine to possibly give you the edge you need to come out on top.. however there is also the risk of getting moldy cheese or fish bones attached to you, and youll need to pay the same amount of coins to discard them.. so there is a risk as these items can take a hefty amount of points away from you in the end…
    My biggest complaint with Cake bash is that there just isn’t enough variety to the game modes… It will tak 3 and a half hours to unlock all of the places and modes, but getting to the end of that rainbow really stats to become quite repeettive and boring in the final hour, only a th fault of playing the same thing over and over, always having to do a cookie bash, always having to play sweet victory at the end… I need some variety in each op my play throughs, and playing the same mini game but on a different map with different hazards just isn’t enough.. theres only so many times I can beat up a cookie or uppercut a muffin that has too many jelly beans attached to it… at least in a row…
    Another complaint I have is in how cake bash saves progress.. im not sure when or how often it does, but there is a meta game of completing challaenges to unlock new versions of the characters you can choose, and a game crash caused me to lose over 20% of my game progress, which was about an hr or so of play time lost.. that’s about 3 rounds.. so the game didn’t event save my progress in between each round… thankfully some of the harder challenges were remembered, but some of the tedious ones were not which is quite frustrating..
    Overall though my girlfriend and I loved being cupcakes and donuts bashing eachother with spoons and dodging pigeons, forks, and knives…
    it was the final grind that only I had to endure that left me craving more in this game of sweets..
    I give Cake Bash
    a 7.5/10
