Join us in taking Good Catch Games’ stealth-focused multiplayer beat ‘em up, Black & White Bushido, into the shadows for a covert quickie.
Sounds good, but are there any lingering concerns?
Our concern really lies in the game’s lasting appeal. You’ll definitely have a blast if you have a bunch of friends over, but when they leave - and you’re left all alone - the game just doesn’t hold up to the same standard. Beating the largely dim witted AI gets dull rather quickly, and although the online components do a decent job of upholding the values of local multiplayer, it really does suffer from the lack of in-the-room gloating and goading.
With that in mind, does it come recommended?
B&WB is built for Friday nights with a bunch of chums, pizza and fizzy drinks aplenty - if this sounds like you and your friends, then we can recommend it. For the soloist, however, we’d struggle to endorse it - the AI doesn’t inspire, and the online multiplayer just doesn’t carry the same joy as its local counterpart, which is a shame, but not entirely unexpected.
Black & White Bushido is available now on Xbox One, PS4 and Steam.
