Ultimate Chicken Horse
Bringing out the wicked side of everyone who plays, Ultimate Chicken Horse is great for party gaming.
A party title with great visuals, sound, and gameplay, Ultimate Chicken Horse is a great combination of conniving strategy and frantic platforming. With plenty of modes to play, maps to customise, and unlocks to go for, Clever Endeavour Games' PS4 debut is as good for your wallet as it is for your sofa. An essential for any get together, the game's well-tuned mechanics lead to pure animania.
Ultimate Chicken Horse does everything it tries to do very well, but a few quibbles keep it from greatness.
Ultimate Chicken Horse really is a special game, and one of those rare indie multiplayer games that catches lightning in a bottle and will leave you wanting to come back again and again for a good laugh after a stressful day. Just don't try going into single player until you've been online a few times to learn the ropes.
The fun of Ultimate Chicken Horse may be limited without others to play with, and its simple art design left a lot to be desired, but at $14.99, these are not good enough excuses to miss out on it. Single-player level creation games are intimidating and not for everyone, but with this particular multiplayer spin on it, you may find yourself to be more creative and thoughtful than you thought you were.

One of the best party games of this generation of consoles, and it works great as a online competitive title, too! It's the most fun level creator ever!

An enjoyable indie game which doesn't take itself seriously and leverages its enjoyment on a frantic and frenetic local multiplayer party mode. Single player level making is a lot of fun if you're into that kind of gameplay.
The style of Ultimate Chicken Horse is great and when it all comes together, it is a special brand of silly party gaming. Unfortunately, unless you find that perfect situation, the quality of the fun can vary wildly. So much of the amusement here is dependent on having the right people to play with. Find that setup and this is a madcap party game.
Ultimate Chicken Horse is a simple game isn't the kind of game you pick up and play every night, as it benefits most from fresh bouts of sadistic creativity, but for the $20 price tag, it's one of the best pick-up-and-play party games you'll find on the PS4.
