Brass tacks, the Jackbox Party Pack 2 made me and my friends laugh our asses off, and that's what it's all about. I can't think of an easier or quicker way to reduce a room to a giggling mass of hysteria, just toss it at a group of people and go. Party Pack 2 is a ridiculous value that is sure to provide you and your friends with a lot of laughs and great memories, exactly what every party game should aspire to.
It's telling that having played through the whole set we returned to play Quiplash XL and Fibbage 2 for a number of hours, and they're both hugely amusing and engaging games that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to play with a group of friends. While the other entries aren't as strong, with Earwax proving to be a particular disappointment, and despite technical issues that suck some of the fun from the experience, Jackbox Party Pack 2 still offers one of the best multiplayer experiences I've ever had on a console.
A wonderfully eclectic collection of local multiplayer curiosities, the second coming of the Jackbox Party Pack is somewhat uneven when it comes to quality but remains a strong choice for gamer and non-gamer folks alike looking for a multiplayer party fix.
