Honestly, who knew moving could be so fun?! Moving Out is a blast to play -- especially with friends or family with you -- and at under $30, it's well worth it. Right from the start with its cheesy '80s instructional video, a humorous tone is set for this co-op (cooperative) simulation. It first covers the basics of moving furniture, like couches, from someone's property to a spot inside the truck. Not only is it a challenging to move several items through narrow passageways, but some are super long couches or TVs connected to a wall with its power cord, which snap and spin you around when you walk away with the appliance. Plus, there are time limits to beat -- with bronze, silver, and gold awards -- which adds extra fun tension to your mission. Racing against the clock while carrying large items in tight areas makes it a ridiculous fun co-op experience.When you get really good with your co-op buddies, you can throw and catch fragile items, like vases, through a second-story window to help speed up your missions.

It gets even more fun as you unlock different areas, like a farm or haunted mansion, and face new obstacles and challenges. You'll also enlist help from different characters as you go about the town and grow the business. Easy to play but difficult to put down, the game offers kitschy graphics and catchy '80s-esque music. There isn't much to complain about with Moving Out, but an online co-op (or even competitive) mode would be a fantastic addition. Still, Moving Out is a blast, and a highly recommended as a sleeper summer hit.
