Let’s Play! Who Would Win? (review)

It’s a game that most nerds have been taking part in for their entire lives without realizing it. It usually starts with a benign but ridiculous question like “Who would win in a fight, George Clooney’s character in From Dusk Till Dawn or Han Solo?” Or whatever, there are literally an infinite number of combinations out there. What then happens is an all too in-depth debate about the ins and outs of the battle and who would clearly win.

I can vividly remember a large group of friends very recently getting into a much heated argument about who was the better comic book hero, Batman or Superman (clearly it’s Batman). Voices were raised, movies/comics/tv shows were cited as evidence and sometimes accepted, sometimes discarded. Clearly we’re the target audience for a game that takes that concept and adds scoring to it.

It was probably only a matter of time before someone took this typical debate setup and turned it into a game, and Gamewrigh has done it. In Who Would Win? you’ll debate your friends to decide which famous people/characters would win in various silly competitions.
