Easy going in tone but frantic and stressful by nature, Screencheat seizes on a single novel idea and builds an enjoyable couch shooter around it.

Silly weapons and invisible opponents put a fresh twist on Screencheat's old-school approach to multiplayer shooting.

The execution isn't quite as good as the central concept, but this is still a fun celebration of everything that's great about split-screen gaming.

Screencheat's unique concept is one that provides a nice dose of hilarity and harkens back to all those memories spent staying up late playing GoldenEye with friends. While it's still missing a few sparks of genius that made those old classics so endlessly replayable, it's certainly fun while it lasts.

Unique, accessible, and hilarious to play with friends, Screencheat comes together nicely in one neat little package. It's a chaotically nostalgic trip down memory lane and one that Samurai Punk has fleshed out nicely with a range of systems that shooter fans will be comfortable with. That said, it's tenure over the sitting room may be short-lived. Although fun in small bursts, it doesn't have quite the same staying power or online community that other games enjoy.

Despite a very novel central premise, Screencheat simply fails to maintain attention. The title features a variety of weapons, maps, and modes, but its mechanics take too long to grasp for it to succeed as a party game, while being too shallow for it to succeed as a serious shooter. To be clear, there's definitely some fun to be had here, and the goofy visuals and music help emphasize this, but the entire experience reeks of wasted potential.

Screencheat is undeniably fun, party/shooter hybrid which brings back fond memories of the good old days of split-screen.

It's great fun, and I had a big dumb smile on my face the entire time. If you're looking to relive the most controversial part of multiplayer gaming's yesteryear, I highly recommend Screencheat.

Screencheat harkens back to those days of yesteryear where you could "spy" on people's screens during LAN gaming which is where this title succeeds on the XBox One!

Interesting concept, and fun with friends, but a lack of online competition makes it rather dull.
