What The Dub Review Cons:

  • Needs a minimum of 3 players otherwise there is no voting or winner.
  • Clips will eventually repeat themselves.
  • When writing a Dub you get no feedback on length so you can make your Dub too long or too short and it breaks the experience.
  • Only one game type.
  • They say a film (House on Haunted Hill) is a B-Movie which is WRONG!

Summary

What The Dub is a game where you get to add your own lines to a movie scene. Think of it as the closest we will ever get to a Rifftrax game. I really liked the idea and how easy and straightforward it all was, anyone can jump in and it’s all very quick. I just wish it had a better way of telling you how long your improvisation needs to be because making it too short or too long really Ruins the experience. Aside from a few niggles What The Dub is definitely a game you need to be installed when friends are round.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
