Best Month Ever! Reviews
Best Month Ever! is a short, enjoyable narrative that perhaps suffers from high ambitions that don't quite pay off. Glitches in the game can really take you out of what would otherwise be a fluid experience.
Our thoughts on Best Month Ever are mostly positive. The gameplay is more like a TellTales esque game mixed with point and click mechanics. It doesn’t have a ton of gameplay in it aside from minigames and walking from point A to point B. The sound design is phenomenal with voice acting that helps you feel the emotional weight of this narrative driven title. The graphics mixed with the camera angles are solid. The game could have been improved upon with character art for portraits to help us see the expressions of the characters. Overall we recommend this game unless you have issues with games that include moments of Racism, Sexism and emotional abuse. The narrative of this game has some ridiculously good high and low moments that help expand on the characters themselves. You won’t regret playing this game and seeing the effect a mother has on her child.
A flawed, yet beautiful, tale of a mother and her son.
Best Month Ever is a touching adventure game about a mother trying to set her son up with a good life as she faces a terminal illness. The game tackles serious subjects such as racism, sexism, and violence, and the choices you make along the way will affect Mitch and shape the man he grows up to be.
BEST MONTH EVER is not only a game, but it's also an experience that can teach us a thing or two about the troubles of our societies.

The appeal of Best Month Ever! is entirely dependent on whether you are interested in interactive narratives. For those who are interested, like me, I would be inclined to give the game the next award up than the one below. The game is perhaps priced a little too highly right now considering its run time. But if narrative is your thing and you have the money to spend, then I hope you enjoy the game as much as I did.
Best Month Ever! fails to be a great example of a heavy story that is handled well both in terms of the development of the story and the characters, the mechanics are clunky and frustrating, and the sound design is not the best- But it is great in the art department.
