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.

More Fibbage, more Quiplash. Do you need anything else?

Quiplash XL, Fibbage 2 and Ear Wax are must haves and are worth the price of admission alone, assuming you don't have Party Pack 1 and the standalone Quiplash.

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.

Overall, the Jackbox Party Pack 2 is a great addition to any gaming collection – especially as the festive season beckons. Packing enough variety to keep different age groups entertained, this is an affordable set of fun games that are easy to organise since they don't even require additional DualShock 4 controllers. What's more, the games themselves are really good fun to play and memorable enough to make you want to come back. Party on dudes.

Jackbox Games' Jackbox Party Pack 2 is a disappointingly sophomoric sequel, and in every sense of the word.

If you're playing solo, then The Jackbox Party Pack 2 isn't likely to be your speed. However, if you're looking for a game that will suit your fellow partygoers, or want to stream a good, lively game session with your fellow deviants, then it's an essential purchase – especially when you begin to get hooked on Quiplash and Earwax. It'll certainly put a twist on your holidays.

While some of the games may have got lost or muddled in transition, the Jackbox Party Pack 2 is just as fun as ever. Just make sure you have some friends to play with.

Despite the requirement to have an Internet connection to experience 4 of the 5 games, The Jackbox Party Pack 2 is just as strong as its prequel. The same zany presentation and innovative use of smart devices, it's another ideal party starter. Which set you choose (if you only choose one) will likely come down to whether you prefer trivia, improvisation or cooperative-based games, but overall this second pack is a solid set that will provide a lot of laughs and collective fun.
