Whether you call them weirdo physics games, chaos sandboxes, or just a crazy time, games in the vein of the somewhat infamous Goat Simulator and its ilk are kind of hard to put a finger on. Deliberately sloppy and silly, the entertainment value you can derive from them will tend to vary pretty wildly, but that isn’t to say you can’t clearly judge some better than others. In principle, Just Die Already has a good core idea… putting senior citizens into the place of the protagonists to let them wreak Early Bird havok on the streets. In execution in this specific case though? Eh, it has its moments but too often it feels like the burden of making it more fun is put on the player without as many terrifically ripe opportunities for silliness just waiting for you to find when compared to its competition in the eShop. Sure, there are some amusing cheap shots and zingers here but it wears thin a bit quicker than the average for the genre so you’ll need to consider it carefully even if you’re normally a fan.
