While my group and I enjoyed trying out this year's Party Pack, it's fair to say it didn't live up to my expectations. It's still a lot of fun, and there were frequent outbursts of laughter in my living room. But there really wasn't a standout title here, nothing to recommend this year's pack over previous entries in the series. It felt like all the games here would've benefited from a little more playtesting, a little more polish. I think it's telling that at the end of the night, we ended by loading up The Jackbox Party Pack 3 and playing a couple rounds of last year's Trivia Murder Party. You'll get your money's worth out of The Jackbox Party Pack 4, but you might have a better time with one of its predecessors.

All in all, the Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a great party game bundle with far more hits than misses.

Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a very solid collection of party games. In fact, it's probably the best entry in the series. Only one game is a real dud, with the other four games offering plenty of chances for hilarity. And Fibbage About You is a clever spin on the already great game of Fibbage.

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 does enough to warrant another dive into its zany, over the top party game world. The visual presentation is mostly stellar and varied throughout, but of course it comes down to the games themselves. When it's good, it's great - the new Fibbage mode 'Enough About You', refined drawing game Civic Doodle and the fast-paced tournament style Bracketeering will keep any social gatherings going. Survive the Internet can be rather hit and miss due to its topical humour, so it depends heavily on the crowd. Aside from its cooky and spooky presentation, meanwhile, Monsters Seeking Monsters falls flat.As long as you're aware of the requirement of web-connected smart devices to play, The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is another worthy addition to the Switch, and for the most part there's a good balance of familiar and fresh material for newcomers and veterans alike.

Even just to have for one dinner party or hangout of four or more friends, the entry price is worth it – Jackbox Party Pack 4 is a guaranteed multi-hour adventure into adult fun.

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 once again shows that innovation can still occur after years of releasing the same type of product. While Fibbage is the only sequel mini-game, the changes included help freshen the experience. The ease of use is the most significant asset to the Jackbox titles, allowing anyone with access to a browser to join the action. While Jackbox Games is undoubtedly going to face some competition in the form of PlayLink titles on PlayStation 4, but the fact you don't have to download apps ahead of time keeps these games on my must-play list for get-togethers.

It ain't perfect, but it's the best Jackbox has to offer.

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is one of the better titles in the series that includes a game about dating monsters, as well as a few unfortunate bugs.

Another decent selection of titles to liven up a party - but bring lots of friends, as more is definitely merrier.

The strongest collection of Jackbox titles they have ever released. With instant classics in the form of Monster Seeking Monster and Survive The Internet, even Bracketeering and Civic Doodle will leave your mouth sore from laughing too much.
