Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout review

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is a battle royal game with a unique twist. Instead of emptying a Micro UZI, you will participate in a loony and chaotic race. You need to be the last munchkin standing and snatch the crown to win. 

The Joy of Schadenfreude

At first, Fall Guys gameplay seems remarkably simple: run to the finishing line, avoid colliding with rivals, and you’ll be golden. But in reality, it’s a rough challenge that will make you sweat blood.

The colorful munchkin — your avatar — isn’t the easiest one to control. Its movement feels a tad wobbly and awkward. You can possibly blame it on the avatar’s jellybean anatomy that only worsens the game with its wiggly physics.

Then, some challenges offer truly diabolical levels: giant seesaws, perpetually moving platforms, rotating hammers, barely climbable barriers and other infernal contraptions. 

And of course pools of death-bringing pink slime. Once you’re pushed off the platform or simply fail to control your body and tip over — it’s the end of your trophy tun. But you can stay, and watch the rest of jellybean maniacs trample each other for that sweet crown.

A Party Banger

Fall Guys is an online-only type of game. You will share the pain of the race with other 59 players, but also you can form a squad with three friends and join one of the tournaments.

To diversify the gameplay, there are various extra modes apart from the classic race. Among others, you will find:

  • Fruit Chute. Can you guess what happens when you and your foes are bombarded with giant oranges?  
  • Gate Crash. Moving doors deliver premium-quality knock-outs. 
  • Team Tail Tag. Snatch as many racconie or squirrel tails that you only can till the time’s up.
  • Hex-A-Gone. Nothing MMA-related. You will just have to keep jumping as the floor keeps disintegrating tile by tile.
  • Fall Ball. A soccer game set in the Fall Guys reality. The perfect mode if you want to join forces with a group of friends.

And many others. All in all, there are about 25 mini-games to try, including the team events. Even though some are quite irksome, like Tail Tag, winning a long-desire crown tastes as sweet as a chocolate-glazed honeycomb.

Speaking of Crowns. They are a premium in-game currency, which mostly allows you buying loony costumes: Master Ninja, My Friend Pedro, Rainbow Water, Toucan, Twinklycorn, Elder Dwarf, and so on. So, in case you want to dress like a giant hot dog — win the crowns.

All this push-n-shove pandemonium happens amidst a colorful world. It looks like everything here is made of marshmallow and other candy. And giant fast food — pizza slices, bratwurst sausages, French fries — often serve as obstacles.

Pros

  • Energetic gameplay;
  • Cornucopia of mini-games;
  • Sweet unlockable cosmetics;

Cons

  • Game is exclusively online;
