Very Very Valet
Top Critic Average
If you’re looking for something to pass the time on a flight with a friend, or just something to occasionally whip out once you’ve had a few drinks then it’ll do the job, but it’s unlikely to be a staple party game for years to come.
Valeting might not sound very interesting of a premise for a game but Toyful Games subverts expectations with a fun couch co-op title that can be easily picked up and played in short bouts that inevitably turn valeting into parking chaos.
Very Very Valet is something a little bit different; it’s a hilarity-inducing party game that also has a bit of puzzle-logic and substance to it. You’ll have fun playing by yourself, but it’s when you get others involved that the game’s true chaotic nature shows itself. Not to be taken too seriously, Very Very Valet is well worth pulling out next time you have friends over.
Online leaderboards would have been a nice inclusion, and it's hard not to feel like the basic premise of the game isn't taken much further in later stages than earlier ones. Still, even playing alone I had a lot of fun shuttling cars around the different stages, and the potential for chaos and uproarious laughter in multiplayer is very, very high. Just be prepared to fight the driving controls as much as you fight for parking spaces.
Frantic co-op multiplayer games don't get much better than Very Very Valet with its hilarious gameplay premise and silly scenarios.
Very very valet is unique blend of quick decision making and even quicker reflexes as you strive to deliver parked cars to a parking lot and then back to your customers again once they decide to leave – as quickly and as efficiently as possible in this mad-cap parking experience.
Very Very Valet tries to bring the fun of chaos, but falls short of being a bonafide five-star offering.
Overall, Very Very Valet is a fun addition to the increasingly crowded co-op arena. The core gameplay is unique and interesting even if aspects like its driving controls and the chaos that ends each level on the default difficulty take some getting used to. Fortunately, the difficulty can be adjusted so that friends and family of all skill levels can pick up and play. So park your rear on the couch and have a very very good time!
Very Very Valet does an impressive job of creating a fun casual game that can be enjoyed by gamers of all skill levels. While playable alone this is a game best enjoyed with up to four other people, especially if someone needs cheering up. Improvements could be made to the content but it’s hard not to crack a smile at the silliness on display. A great start to a new IP. What’s easy to say in this review is Very Very Valet is very very good.
