The Switch certainly has its share of local co-op games to sort through if you like playing with your family and friends and, truth be told, in many ways my family and I have found getting new ones to be exhausting more often than not since so many of them fall into common and predictable patterns that struggle to satisfy. While Get Packed may share some DNA with the excellent Moving Out, what surprised us was how well it managed to deviate from that same course by inserting far more silliness into the mix, ultimately making for what was often a more chaotic and laugh-filled time. Sure, you could try to focus on getting out all of the traditional furniture in a careful and responsible way… but why not just go full-speed, forgetting about the damage, simply hoping that quantity over quality works out in the end. But it’s really some of the bonus objectives like trying to load a car for moving, which takes some real work, but also immediately had everyone in my family committed to the task, cheering when we somehow managed to get just enough of the front-end into the truck for it to count. It’s really those moments, as well as one that cropped up in the multiple oddball mini games, that made this relatively modest investment multiplayer game a winner, even if it also left us wishing there was more content to enjoy.
