  • Excerpt: Imagine going through life without a spine. Not in a sad or serious sort of way, but more of a stretchy, gummy, awkward display of elasticity.

  • Conclusion: Playing and enjoying Octodad: Dadliest Catch seems to require an active narcotic influence; however, thanks to deliberately obtuse controls and a conscious sense of humor, even the most capable operator will inevitably render their invertebrate avatar a hilarious mess of tentacles and destruction.

  • Pros: Genuinely funny, Touching story, Gameplay variety
  • Cons: Punitive last level, Light on challenge
