  • Summary: #IDARB started as a picture of red box. Then more happened. It's a constantly-evolving, crowd-sourced, minimalist game mechanic sketchbook.

    I highly recommend #IDARB, and this comes from someone that doesn’t play sports games, yet I knew the moment I yelled at my TV during a slow motion instant replay victory, this was special.

    Chaotic, fun and fantastic, #IDARB may just be the best multiplayer experience currently available on the Xbox One.

    #IDARB is a fantastic party game with its large player count, simple-yet-solid mechanics, and the ability to let those spectating interact. It’s the perfect game to keep loaded on your Xbox One, as long as you have someone nearby to join the fun.

    As good as #IDARB is, it’s going to need a community of players and fans to get the most out of it.

    A frantic, enjoyable and easy to approach strictly for multiplayer game.
  6. 75
    Fast, silly, disposable fun that excels at couch competition but falls short of our expectations for online play, #IDARB is nevertheless a brilliant laugh.

    It's much like Twitter itself - raucous and ridiculous, funny but infuriating. [Apr 2015, p.122]

It has to be the most addictive game I have ever played. There are some matchmaking issues but after one or two tries you find a match. Fast fun simple gameplay makes this a treat. I play with hashbombs off as I feel they detract from the game. This game also has online guest support so you can play up to 4v4 with a team of friends on your sofa. Expand

But come jan29 boom #IDARB shows up on Games With Gold and immediately i was transported back to 1988 and the mad competition that existed on the NES with BLADES OF STEEL! From start to finish this is hilarious competitive pure gaming competition. For what IDARB is, its amazing. Plus its probably one of the new gen old school 8 bit looking games that ill ever endorse. Because this is pure headups 1 vs 1 2 vs 2 insane competition multiplayer done right! Expand

The game is quite simple yet very elegant, only one map but an immense list of usable characters. The game sets you in a face off between you and another user or many of you team against team. The one-on-one type of game I find is the most profound. Great game as well to get a group of friends together and play against each other competitively. Definitely worth the download or play if you have the chance to. Expand

    This game is extremely fun, by far one of the fun games so far in this generation. The 8 bit style is one of the best imitations of it sinceThis game is extremely fun, by far one of the fun games so far in this generation. The 8 bit style is one of the best imitations of it since the NES era. The controls are simplistic but responsive. The gameplay is basically soccer and basketball in a vertical sense. There is also the rather extensive character, flag, and song creator. (Songs play when waiting for a match and it's post game results. However as of this review if you're playing alone for online you'll always only get one opponent, if a friend is on the playing with you locally and you play online you'll get two, etc up to four. There is also no bots in the single player/local game oddly enough there are bots in a single player campaign like mode however you're stuck with one team. Expand

    For free it is definitely worth the add, but for the regular price it would get a little stale after a while for me. Having 8 people runningFor free it is definitely worth the add, but for the regular price it would get a little stale after a while for me. Having 8 people running around on one screen is something that is hard to beat though. All Xbox one owners should scoop this game up while it is free. It's a game that you will definitely thrown on every once in a while for some wild fast paced action. Not a huge fan of some of the mechanics but overall, it is fun to play every once and a while.
