Introducing Jump Stars, the bonkers new local multiplayer party game which pits player against player in a bizarre, violent game show - whilst they collectively compete to save their skins. Cooperate as a team to get as much score as you can, then jump, punch, break, munch, explode, and crunch your teammates out the way to steal first place! Try to reach "The Gauntlet" by getting enough team score in each of four random mini-games chosen by the ominously cuckoo host, in "Tournament"! Or, build your very own line-up, choosing from a array of unique mini-games across 25 different settings, in "My Show". Then pick one of 24 different cosplaying Cubee contestants to play as!

A quiz game that does little to hold your attention after the initial impressions.

Jump Stars is a nice, cheap diversion if you have a couple of friends to play with. Unlike almost every other game out there, you cannot play single player. There are also just a handful of game modes to choose from. It's a party game you might come back to when the mood strikes. The fake game show announcer with dual personalities injects some, well, personality into the game, and the characters are amusing to play with. There's not a ton of content, and multiplayer is required, but $9.99 ($7.99 for PlayStation Plus members) seems like a fair asking price for Jump Stars.

It's hard to not like Jump Stars. From its cutesy playable characters to its easy to pick up gameplay, it's accessible and enjoyable for all, no matter their skill level.

As far as local party games go, Jump Stars is not exactly bad, but it's certainly missing a lot of the components that make such titles shine. It's simple, it's boring, it lacks variety, and there's no point in buying it when there are far better alternatives out there - and, yes, that includes the world of PC gaming, also.
