Player Quotes

"Players scoring in their own team's baskets is an oft-read criticism."

"The fact that the anti-gravity zone is colored blue for both teams produces a confusing ambiguity."

"I think it would be more fun if it had fewer players. It's a little too chaotic with the amount of players that tend to be playing."

"Yes now I can join a game faster + the rounds will be shorter thanks fall guys!"

"I literally can't recommend this even if I wanted to. ♥♥♥♥ epic games. It also just crashes now."

"I agree with the sentiment that tedious, grind-y challenges such as collecting 2,000 blaze cannisters is annoying."

"If I'm honest, Basketfall is absolutely abysmal. There's always something that ruins the game, like latency or if not that, it's the physics of the balls, or if it's not that then it's your own team scoring in their own nets and it just seems impossible to have a full game of Basketfall without something going wrong that's out of your control."
