Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 May 2022
Five years into its life cycle the Nintendo Switch gets what should have been released back in 2017 as a bundle in game as Wii Sports was before it with the release of the Nintendo Wii way waaaaaay waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2006.

I wish that I could say that this follow up to Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, and Wii Sports Club was an evolution of the motion controlled sports games but in actuality it's probably a lesser game.

The original Wii Sports had games such as tennis, baseball, bowling, golf, and boxing, in Switch Sports we lose baseball, golf, and boxing, and instead we get badminton, volleyball, chambara, and football.

I'm not sure why badminton AND tennis was included in the sports line up as on console it's essentially the same game, but there we go. Chambara is lots of fun if very basic, whilst I found volleyball and football very, very dull.

Bowling saves the package from being a completely "meh" event. This is fantastic fun with someone in the same room or versus random people and/or bots online.

As I understand it Golf will be available for free to download at some point this year, and I keep holding out hope that they'll give us boxing and baseball too. Still, if only golf is available to download then I guess its better than nothing...

Although I think bowling, chambara and tennis/badminton are great fun, the rest of the games let the side down, as does the price. There is nothing here that couldn't have been developed prior to the release of the Switch and bundled in with the console. We already had the mechanics with Wii Sports, and in fact, Wii Sports probably did it better...
