Game Reviews from around the web
I’ve played a lot of the launch lineup for Playstation VR but nothing has come close to the amount of fun that I’ve had with Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. It’s one of the few VR experiences that can be even more fun for people without the headset on.
Positively hypnotic in PS VR, this is an ideal showcase for your new virtual reality kit. [Christmas 2016, p80]
With no player limit, only one headset required and endless replay value, this is the perfect VR party game. [Dec 2016, p.92]
One of the most inventive uses of VR so far…A unique and entertaining social VR experience. [Issue#180, p.48]
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a unique and fundamentally excellent party game. It is a rare example of a game in which failure can be as much fun as success. If you have friends over regularly or have people over party chat that don’t mind reading a manual then there are few cooperative experiences that can beat it.
A very smart use of a new technology; it was executed very well, it’s simple to play, and it is fun for everyone. There is a nice progression of difficulty with more complex modules appearing with more frequency over time, and then again with the introduction of needy modules (they can’t be finished or solved, but require constant attention throughout your allotted time).
If you’re surrounded by the right group, this is tremendous fun, where the innovative connection of communication and teamwork is the key to success.
The ideal party game for PlayStation VR, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes scores with its original concept and enjoyable multiplayer.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes utilises the PlayStation VR headset superbly to create an excellently immersive, couch co-op experience, with tight controls that make it easily accessible for new players. The gameplay is enjoyable, and there is plenty on offer in terms of replayability to keep you coming back for more.
