Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes Review

How hard are the puzzles in Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes?

There's a well-paced difficulty curve as you progress through the first few bombs. I suppose the difficulty's dictated more by the people playing than the game. If you've got a Mensa member scanning the defusal manual for you, it'll be easier than if you tried to play with, say, your dog. It's probably more difficult to play as the 'expert' interpreting the manual than the defuser with the goggles on.

How realistic is Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes?

I'm not really in a position to say, but I'd imagine real bombs feature less wacky logic puzzles and more terrifying wires. It's not about realism though, and would be a very different (and probably much less enjoyable) game if it did focus on authenticity.

This being a local multiplayer game, you don't really need to worry about that. To my knowledge there isn't a modding scene or anything. You just need a friend in the vicinity - or via Skype I suppose - and you're good to go.

If your team messes up, you lose. You can't really solo this game.

How funny is Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes?

There's not much humour explicitly woven into the gameplay, but it's certainly conducive to laughs. Hearing someone describe the pattern of a miniature Simon Says that you'll need to decipher in order to defuse a bomb is funny in ways I don't need to explain.

Not anything to fawn over. There's not much audio at all actually, and since you'll spend most of your time talking - as the title suggests - that's for the best.

It's not a game designed to wow with its visuals, but its graphics do the job. The art direction's clear and lighthearted, just as it needs to be.
