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."

Do either of these take your fancy? Do you like to collect smaller titles in physical form? Let us know in the comments.
