Clash is a 4-player arena fighter, with no option for online play it pits you against your family and friends which in my house at least led to many proclamations of 'that's not fair!' as my son was obliterated by my partner, who clearly doesn't believe in giving kids a chance to win...
There are a few different game modes and things you can adjust things like gravity and the score needed to win to mix things up a little. But the real beauty of Clash is that it is insanely simple, you can block or you can attack and that's IT! You only need to land one attack to kill your foe. Which is how my living room turned into a battle zone last night, even my youngest could play it (just not very well). The controls are really responsive too, something a game this simple really has to rely on.
Clash is a good bit of fun for anyone who does have four Xbox controllers and friends or family to play it with. There is no option to play on your own, so if you're the type of gamer my Mum fears I'll turn into (i.e anti-social and alone) then it won't be any good for you. For those of us who still bother with the outside world, it's good for a laugh with your friends and pretty fairly priced, but I don;'t know how long it could keep you entertained for, I guess it depends on your peer group. There still aren't enough games that offer four player local play so try it out if you're sick of only being able to shoot your friends in the face.
6/10 TRY IT!
