Family Feud & Friends is one of many family feud games, but this one allows you to compete directly with others. In the growing wave of social gaming, Family Feud & Friends is just another game that connects you with your Facebook friends for you to compare how much better you can figure out what the most popular answers are to survey questions.
If you’re somehow unfamiliar with the game show, Family Feud is played by two teams or individuals competing against each other. In order to gain points, each person must figure out how the most popular answer to a random survey question. Each category has up to 100 points possible. The winner is then given an opportunity to compete in the fast money round, where they are given two opportunities to answer five different categories, and they win if they reach 200 points.
In the aspect of emulating the game show, Family Feud & Friends does a near perfect job. The few modifications to the game are made to fit better on a video game. Though it does well here, it definitely isn’t the first Family Feud game to offer a good simulation.
The key feature of the game is the social connectivity. When you play a game, you’re paired up against a random person who has already played and acquired a score, but it’s made to feel like you’re playing them in real time. You can also compare your daily high scores to your Facebook friends. You can challenge them to a high score competition, with the winner gaining experience points used to level up.
Unfortunately, that’s where the social connectivity ends. You cannot challenge a friend to a real time competition, nor can you even face off against them using the same categories. For a game that is based on its social connection, these missing features are glaring.
You also have a limit on how many times you can play. The nice thing is that the limit is quite high, so you’ll get plenty of playing time in.
Family Feud & Friends is a great game for people who love the game show. Don’t be fooled by the social aspect though, as it’s not what you’d think it would be.
