VINE VOICE
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 April 2022

 I paid £35 for Switch Sports which was the day one launch price.

The good:
- Great fun. My sons and I have had a fantastic time playing together. Usually they'll be playing together online in different rooms, so it's refreshing to play together in front of the same TV. Is that old school now?
- Controls are easy to pick up for all ages. Make sure kids use the straps though, my son launched the joycon towards the TV. Reminds me of the Wii days!
- Quick into online games. My first game was with bots then with other real players after that. I started to lose a lot.. :-(

The not so good:
- Looks a bit rough on a 4k TV. Shimmering and jaggies are quite visible.
- Basic graphics. Nintendo Land on Wii U looks better, which is a shame given the extra power the Switch has.
- Not much content. Other games such as archery from Wii Sports Resort would have been welcome.
- To play 2 player football, 2 pairs of joycons are needed. This will lock out some players who only have the joycons that come with the console (luckily I have 2 sets)

In closing, you're paying the Nintendo premium for this game considering the limited content, especially compared to previous Nintendo games. I feel it's not worth £35.

If you're after a modern version of Wii sports though like I was to play with the kids, I think it's worth picking it up. Hopefully they'll add more content in the future to improve the value. But until then, it's 3 stars.

NOTE: THIS GAME CAN'T BE PLAYED ON SWITCH LITE! If buying for someone else, make sure they have the dockable Switch.
