Overall, Move or Die is the game it promises to be. Thanks to the proliferation of multiplayer with strangers, and how you need to play online to unlock content anyway, it’s likely that it won’t be as friendship-ruining as advertised – but that’s probably for the best. The game sees frequent updates, adding content and fixing problems, and that means it’s a pretty safe purchase. The only problem is the potential lag, inherent to peer-to-peer multiplayer, you might encounter online or with distant friends. For best results, get a 4-pack and play with friends – but you don’t have to.
Well, no more. As of this writing, the game drops AI bots in to replace players who leave, and if the host leaves, the host changes to an existing player. Thus, losing a game you’re winning and the XP that comes with it is quite rare. It may be able to happen if all players leave except for you, but this didn’t occur in any of our testing.
