Tis the season for getting people together to play games (well, with Covid perhaps less so, but roll with it) so co-op fans are no doubt looking for something just a bit different to enjoy with friends or family. In terms of being different the good news is that BFF Or Die has you covered, with it being a sort of a cooperative action game mixing bits of Pac-Man, a claw machine, and a few other oddball gadgets to make something thoroughly different. Each person will have a distinct role to play and coordination is the key to success, though everyone having the ability to adapt is definitely helpful since the action keeps on moving, not waiting for you to catch up. Whether the play is well-balanced, all roles are engaging equally for everyone, or raucous fun I would imagine will vary greatly per audience though. There’s no denying it’s simply different in its execution but it’s by no means a guaranteed hit for everyone.
