5 Biggest Video Games from Last Week: No Let-Downs

Consensus: Generally Favorable
Most games that have multiplayer modes nowadays have a clear focus on the online experience. Not Sportsfriends. In fact, this compilation of four mini-games requires you and your friends to be sitting in the same room, in front of the same TV.
That’s both a good thing and a bad thing. It’s good because it encourages you to have friends over, but it’s bad when no one’s around and you want to play a game. GamesRadar also warns that, “To really get the full Sportsfriends experience, you need four standard [controllers], four Move controllers, and four real human beings holding them.” However, if you have that setup, GameSpot says that, “Sportsfriends is great in large part because of its simplicity, which allows just about anybody to play its games, even if they have little or no prior experience with video games.”
