    Each game in Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a winner - something I’ve never said about a Jackbox pack before. These games don’t have convoluted rules and are super easy to jump right into, with each one being a great time even if you’re flailing and not scoring any of the requisite points required to win. The variety also makes it versatile for different groups, and if you’re searching for a solid party game on Switch, this might just be the one to break out during the holidays.

    Monster Seeking Monster isn't the same pace as most of the other party games, it's a great source of fun for those who enjoy games featuring strategy and social manipulation. Survive the Internet reveals just how terrible your friends are, Bracketeering provides fast paced fun for a whopping sixteen people, and Fibbage 3 allows you to show off both your trivia knowledge and your ability to fool your friends. All in all, the Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a great party game bundle with far more hits than misses.

    With the exception of Fibbage 3, each game in The Jackbox Party Pack 4 requires a minimum of three people but, the pack's potential isn't fully realised without a substantially larger group. This is a party pack that is sincerely meant for a party. Smaller groups will be able to get enjoyment out of Civic Doodle or Fibbage, but Survive the Internet, Monster Seeking Monster, and Bracketeering, especially, are designed with larger get-togethers in mind. Despite an emphasis on playing with a big group, The Jackbox Party Pack 4 stands out as one of the strongest entries in the series with no discernible weak links in the pack's line-up. Along with continuing the trend of swapping out traditional controllers for smart phones, it's entirely possible to host a game over a stream, negating the need to find 8-16 friends for some local Jackbox shenanigans.

    The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is one of the better titles in the series that includes a game about dating monsters, as well as a few unfortunate bugs.

    The visual presentation is mostly stellar and varied throughout, but of course it comes down to the games themselves. When it's good, it's great - the new Fibbage mode 'Enough About You', refined drawing game Civic Doodle and the fast-paced tournament style Bracketeering will keep any social gatherings going. Survive the Internet can be rather hit and miss due to its topical humour, so it depends heavily on the crowd. Aside from its cooky and spooky presentation, meanwhile, Monsters Seeking Monsters falls flat.

    As I've previously maintained, these games' worth can only really be determined if you have loads of people handy, and people who can think of entertaining answers at that. Sadly, the price point is far too much for what it is - you're going to need to fork out about £100 for all four of the packs. The sum of the parts isn't worth what's being charged for the whole.

    I don't know how to critique these games besides "They should magically appear while I'm with friends and family."

    Flat-out fun...silly,

    Jackbox Party Pack 4
    A Pretty Okay Collection
    Party Pack 4 isprobably one of the weaker collections, Like all party packs, the more players
    Jackbox Party Pack 4
    A Pretty Okay Collection
    Party Pack 4 isprobably one of the weaker collections,
    Like all party packs, the more players the better,as with 3 players or less, youll rarely get much enjoyment out of these games,
    party pack 4 consists of 5 games that you play using your phone rather than a controller
    Firstwe have fibbage 3 which is a great upgrade, but fibbage is kinda losing its spark, this is a game where you try yto come up with the best lie to make everyone choose it in a random trivia game for points, though to improve and not just make it another fibbagegame, theres a bonus enough about you option where the questions are about the players in the room, making it much more fun, full of laughs and not as stale as fibbage otherwise would be at this point,
    Next is survive the internet, you try to come up with most ridiculous comments and captions for posts and photos on the internet, with the right people this has potential to be pretty fun one or two times,
    Next Is the best addition to the party pack universe, monster seeking monster, you are all secret monsters, trying to get dates and use your secret ability to get the most hearts out of the other players, who all have their own secret agenda and strategy to win, this can be really fun and full of strategy, trying to date around other players abilities, but I feel like its too short of a game to bring out this games full potential, things don’t get juice until its almost over.
    hen theres bRACKETEERINB, THE WEEKEST OF THE GAMES, YOU HVOTE ON RANDOM BRACKETS YOU ALL COME UP WITH..
    Not much ese to say, that’s the game, its pretty lame.
    And finally is civix doodle..
    Its always great when Jackbox lets you draw and be creative, and civic doodle is a game where two players keep adding onto a picture while other players vote on the drawing they would like to add to,
    this ones okay if you can get people to play it right, otherwise it could easily turn into a pitty party or poluarity contest.
    Jackbox Party Pack 4 shows some games with some promise, but ultiatly doesn’t do enough to be a must have in your collection..
    I would love to see a revamp of monster seeking monster in the future, as this is probably the closest thing to a reason to have party pack 4”
    I give Jackbox Party Pack 4
    a 6.5/10
