Ultimate Chicken Horse Reviews
Ultimate Chicken Horse effortlessly combines level creation, solid platforming and brilliant multiplayer all into one fantastic package. It’s a game that continues to surprise and amuse in huge measures and if we do end up seeing a Super Mario Maker sequel in the future then Nintendo would be wise to take to note of what Clever Endeavour Games has accomplished here.
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!

Ultimate Chicken Horse is a game that is very easy to recommend since it's a very fun game and one of the most unique multiplayer games I have played in a while.
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.
If you're a fan of 2D platformers and enjoy playing games with other folks then Ultimate Chicken Horse is simply a must-buy game.
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.
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 may not look like much, but it's hard to deny its innate charm and prowess at co-op fun.
This game is worth the money for anybody that likes hardcore platformers. Grabbing three friends and playing will bring you a time that not only will strengthen your bonds of friendship, but will also determine who is the Ultimate Chicken Horse!
I’d recommend it be kept in any game night’s roulette to be whipped out randomly, enthusiastically, and often. Perfect for the holidays or any gathering of friends and family.
Constructing platforming death traps with your friends has never been so fun (or possible… or legal). With plenty of levels and items, Ultimate Chicken Horse will have you and your friends killing each other with glee till the rooster crows.
Ultimate Chicken Horse is an ultimate party game. When you need a game to play with a group of friends on a couch or online – this game will make you laugh and cry at the same time.

Bringing out the wicked side of everyone who plays, Ultimate Chicken Horse is great for party gaming.
Ultimate Chicken Horse does everything it tries to do very well, but a few quibbles keep it from greatness.
Ultimate Chicken Horse is an addictive and surprisingly nuanced competitive platformer that shines in skilled online play, but fails as a couch multiplayer game thanks to a combination of a lack of coaching and confusing menu systems that will try the patience of casual players in a party setting. If creating Super Meat Boy-esque levels on the fly to screw over people on the internet sounds like your bag though, this might be the game for you.
Ultimate Chicken Horse is a great concept and what is presented here is well executed. Solo players may want to wait for online play – which wasn’t available at the time of writing – but if you have the potential to snag a few mates and their joypads over then it’s definitely worth investigating.
