This is a title I originally got to try out at PAX and even after having the chance to play it more I’m still a bit torn on it. On the one hand I’d say that in general terms it fails to really pull away from a substantial pack of multiplayer games on Switch that support different competitive and co-op modes, this is ignoring the specifics of the pretty consistent and unique mechanics the game has though. That leads into what I’d consider a great strength it does have though, and that’s the ability to be enjoyed by gamers of just about any skill level and age. Granted, in very mixed company you’d want to stick to team games, but the collective effort to try to work together to knock a ball or puck into your opponents’ goal and score can really get people fired up. So depending on the audience I see this being a very different game. For anyone looking for action-packed intensity and skilled gaming it will be a bust, but for families looking for something anyone can feel like they’re contributing to for some fun it’s a great option that few titles on the Switch can match.
