Finally, there's Johann Sebastian Joust. This game doesn't use the television screen at all, and instead utilizes four PlayStation Move controllers (or DualShock 4 controllers, though they don't work as effectively due to their oblong design) in a game of cat-and-mouse. You perform movements in some cases, depending on the music that's playing, to try and throw off other players. You'll take turns doing this, so someone doesn't have an entirely unfair advantage when it comes to making other players move. This one is ridiculously entertaining, and probably the best of the bunch. Unfortunately, it's likely to be the most pricey, as you need to have a separate Move or PS4 controller for each individual player. The biggest downside with Sportsfriends is that there are no options to play it solo. The developer didn't bother with including the ability to play against AI opponents to get some practice in. Nope, you're immediately thrown into competition. Maybe it's better that way, as playing something along the lines of Johann Sebastian Joust is likely to get old if you're doing it on your own. If you're one of those people who lives to party (and honestly, who doesn't?!), Sportsfriends deserves an immediate addition to your game library. It comes with four unique competitive experiences that are worth checking out, even if some are better than others, and the presentation and gameplay each one presents is truly inventive--and a far cry from what you've come to expect with NBA Jam. Dig in, and don't forget your friends. Rating: 8 out of 10 This review is based on a downloadable PlayStation 4 code provided by the publisher. Sportsfriends is available now for download on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It is rated E for everyone.
