Critic Reviews for Nippon Marathon

Nippon Marathon is a game that is proud to be exactly what it is. There are no pretences or delusions of grandeur, just good clean fun. Playing with friends is sure to bring a fair few laughs as you rain watermelons down on your rivals. Just be prepared to be taken out by sudden barrels and hordes of cute dogs.

With its Takeshi's Castle style, Nippon Marathon will delight those who enjoy the peculiar and ridiculously funny style of these contests, although neither technically nor playable is anything special.

Nippon Marathon has the potential to be a fun party game, but its technical and design shortcomings prevent it from being a race worth running.

Nippon Marathon in theory is a good idea, but when it came to actually playing the game I did not enjoy myself and I really wanted to. Maybe there’s fun to be had if played with friends but I was so put off myself that I wouldn’t force any friends to play it.

Nippon Marathon is a positively wacky, completely deranged party game, but it's also very repetitive.

Nippon Marathon is a curious multiplayer game that unfortunately falls prey to its own over the top nature.

Nippon Marathon is a dispensable title and a must play at the same time. A must play... for those who look for silly and timeless fun.

Nippon Marathon isn't not going to be everyone's tastes – those eye-wateringly janky visuals (whether by design or not) and the nature of physics-driven racing are an acquired taste that most people are going to tire of, fast. However, look past the surface and there's a multiplayer experience here that will appeal to fans of Gang Beasts and the like, who just want a silly party game that cares not for seriousness in any form.
