4Nidhogg 2

Only two people can play Nighogg 2 at any one time, but it’s still worth bringing out at any party. The goal is simple: reach the end of the stage before your opponent. But with your opponent’s goal in the opposite direction to you, and with each of you armed with a variety of weapons, it’s less of a race and more of an all-out brawl.

Nidhogg 2 is positively hilarious as both players battle for victory, stabbing each other and jumping over each other’s attacks. Pass around some controllers and take it in turns to reign victorious – Nidhogg 2 is one of the best party games on Xbox, hands down. You’ll die, die and die again, but you’ll keep jumping back in, side-splitting with laughter every time.
