Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
Top Critic Average
If you have PlayStation VR, Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes should be on your wishlist. It's the kind of game that's perfect for a night in with friends and offers incredible replayability thanks to it's randomly created explosives.
If you are tired of always playing Cards Against Humanity, Monopoly, and that Gargoyles board game on Laserdisc, then Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes will certainly give you the fix you're looking for, pending you have friends ready to be committed to the task at hand. If not, Gargoyles is always a good choice. Trust me.
The game is not only fun and fulfilling, but I genuinely think it improved communication between my partner and me.
But maybe most of your multiplayer experiences are online, well you can just as easily play via your favorite chat app. Since all the communication is verbal, and the manual can be downloaded from any device for free, anyone with earshot can be a bomb expert while anyone with a copy of the game on their Switch can be a bomb defuser. The number of good pure party games on the Switch is short, so it's great to have another title that encourages participation and results in chaotic race-against-the-clock fun.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a perfect party game, provided your party likes a bit of stress every now and then. The puzzles are deviously fun, and the many permutations for each bomb mean that it'll take quite some time before repetition sets in.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a great way to showcase your PS VR to family and friends. Everyone in the room can play, even if they don’t usually play video games! There currently aren’t many local multiplayer games available for PS VR. Luckily, this is one of them, and it’s wonderful!
If you have friends or family to play this with it is a must buy for the PlayStation VR.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a genius game to port to the Switch. It’s so absurdly entertaining, so enthralling and addictive that it’s knocked out Mario Kart 8 as our go to multiplayer game for the time being. Its unique aspects ensure that it’s an essential title to add to your Switch line-up, and is yet another port that’s found a brand new home. I now prefer playing it this way to VR, which is something I never thought I’d say as I ranked it as one of the best PSVR experiences a couple years ago.
It's a blast.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is the most unique co-op game I've ever played, but it's also a brilliant idea that is well executed, and it suits the Nintendo Switch particularly well.
