Frantics should be a fun collection of casual-friendly mini-games made in the Mario Party mould. Unfortunately, it's just criminally boring.

Frantics is a party game where you use your smartphone as a controler. Despites a good amount of fun, the controls lacks of precision and the game is quickly repetitive.

Frantics fails to live up to its name by featuring an oddly slow pace. Beyond that it's not a fantastic party game experience, full of the same sorts of mini-games seen in past titles within the genre. Still, it works well thanks to the PlayLink functionality that allows you to use a smartphone as a controller. If you're dying for a party game for your PS4, it fits the bill, but there are better options out there.

Even as a simple party game, it's difficult to recommend Frantics. There's just nothing that really stands out as a high point. It's flawed in almost every way that really matters and doesn't offer the levels of entertainment one would hope to get from a game like this.

Frantics it's a funny party game for a little while, but the fun won't last so much.

Like many other projects aimed at entertainment for casual parties, this set of mini-games will be fun for one or two evenings, but then, most likely, you and your friends will want something new.

Solid, but rather small collection of mini-games, which scores with its humor, but also bores with its frequent repetitions.

Get some friends together, have a few drinks, some laughs and enjoy the ridiculous fun that is Frantics.

Frantics is a fun set of mini-games which are easy to pick up and play without worrying if you have enough controllers since anyone can play using their mobile phone. It really is a party style title, so don't go expecting any depth here, but at such a low cost you can't really go wrong, especially if you are looking for something to keep the family entertained for an hour or two now and again.

Frantics isn't the killer app PlayLink needs, but a charming art style, fun characters, good use of the phone-based controls, and a diverse selection of quality mini-games good make it a good party game.

It was probably evident throughout the review but I'm not particularly a fan of party games; maybe this is because they're often intrinsically local multiplayer dependent and getting a group of friends together in the same place for a night of gaming goodness has become more and more difficult as the responsibilities and tufts of ear hair start to accumlate alongside the years.

Frantics as a party game is quite dull. As for a family title for kids – it's almost perfect.

Frantics carries on the tradition of party games with its kooky cast and sabotaging shenanigans. The mobile device requirement adds an extra element to gameplay but also serves as a barrier to entry. The final minigame competition for each set of challenges can also feel unfair at times. That being said, Frantics offers a solid selection of activities for you to undertake against friends and family. If you love the minigame genre and engaging in friendly sabotage, this’ll be worth checking out.

It might not be too innovative, but Frantics provides an enjoyable party experience that Sony's PlayLink service has been lacking. It certainly isn't a killer app, but the fun variety of minigames and its (mostly) responsive controls show how much of a good time PlayLink can provide when it's properly used.

Even with some basic design flaws and the eventual monotony of playing the same mini-games over and over, Frantics is a fun distraction that could tide you and the family over for hours. Worth the price of admission.

Overall, Frantics is a fairly successful little foray into the quirky, party-friendly mini-game ensemble concept that skimps a tad on features and content while doubling down on aesthetic

Frantics is a fun four-player party game that does its beset imitation of being a Mario Party lite. It's engaging, fun, at times frustrating, but nonetheless a good addition to the PlayLink game family.
