Rolling onto the scene and feeling like the marriage of Super Monkey Ball, a futuristic racer, and an exercise in calculated risks and insanity, Super Impossible Road certainly makes an impression on Switch. In principle the goal is simple, regardless of the specific event type: get to the goal at the end of the track as quickly as possible. Whether that’s by trying your best to stay on the often-windy track, taking your chances jumping off the side and trying to land on a lower section of track, or some combination of all the above, you can bet none of the options will necessarily be easy. One of the best ways to at least try to give yourself all the help you can is to tune your craft with equipment that best suits your style, usually with a focus on your grip of the track or your ability to control yourself in the air. Whether you try to find a balance and stick with it or even move between a few configurations to best suit the given event and track layout is up to you. Make no mistake, the game earns its name in spades, and racing against others tends to lead to a lot of risk-taking and paying the price, but if you enjoy gritting your teeth and working to “git gud” there’s nothing quite like this on the system.
