Pick up and play – The game’s controls and premise are simple enough for anyone to pick up in a couple minutes. Shoot toys to wrap presents, pick up presents before time runs out. What makes things sweeter is that the game can be played with up to four players, making it very fitting for a holiday party. Things can get really crazy with four people running around to catch presents, but not so crazy it become distracting. The game has three difficulties, each with six unique levels. Each difficulty can be finished in around an hour, but has to be played in a single sitting.
Glitches – This game has so many glitches that take away from the gameplay. The game freezes a lot, usually only for a second but that’s enough to annoy anyone. There are also times where you run into a wall, and it shoots you to the top of it. Although it runs smoothly much of the time, even with four players, a patch is sorely needed.
Elf Squad 7 is definitely a seasonal game; you’d only want to play it this time of year. The basic gameplay is good, and allows for multiple replays with friends and family. This game is meant for Christmas; this game can be played with all ages and it is dripping with holiday cheer. It is rare to see a holiday-themed game on a console, so while not perfect this game fills the void rather well.
Score: Try it! (and have a very happy holiday)
