- "It might sound clichéd, but 'fun' is the most apt word for it....The games range from 8-bit classics to 3D first-person shooters, and they're all mightily impressive. Remember the pure enjoyment of playing video games as a kid? Here, it's recreated on a massive scale."

- "Mind meltingly clever – it feels like a gaming party night...Plenty of fun for everyone from novices, to the slightly skilled, to the most competitive and nimblest of thumbs...A unique experience to which audiences will no doubt return again and again. Go alone or go with others, but if you like laughing and playing games, just go. "
