    →1-2-SWITCH REVIEW 🏆


    1-2 Switch is a totally bizarre party game that made me laugh much harder than similar collections like Wario Ware or Mario Party, but I’m still not sure if I was laughing at it or with it. The assortment of 28 diverse mini-games seems to exist to show off the fidelity of the sensors on the Joy-Con controllers, and they do, but the remarkably unique games lack any real depth.

    The weirdness starts at the very beginning. Each individual game is introduced with a fairly well-produced live-action trailer-slash-tutorial that gives you an idea of the overall tone and mechanics. They’re color coordinated and neatly cut, but seem to be advertisements for the individual game modes more than helpful tutorials. Some are really bad at communicating what you’re supposed to do, and as a result a lot of your first play sessions will probably involve a whole lot of people saying ‘wait, what am I supposed to do here?’

    1Even when you do have an understanding of how different games work, some, like the baseball mini-game, are confusing. You know one of you has to bat and one of you has to pitch, but it doesn’t tell you what sounds to listen for to swing and hit the virtual ball at the right time, plus you can actually get caught out, which seems like it might happen at random. When you’re the batter, a virtual player on a non-existent field can ‘catch’ the ball you hit, and I was never able to tell the physical difference between a successful swing and a losing one. It never communicated that with me.

    Baby is one of the most off-putting mini-games I’ve ever played.

    Other games like Gorilla, Baby, and Zen serve very little appeal beyond the novelty of how odd they are. Gorilla has you pound your chest to a simple beat – something you could do without a Joy-Con if you really wanted – but you probably don’t. Baby has you take the console out of the dock and hold it like a baby, rocking it slowly until it stops crying, and then setting it down without waking it up. And it does seem to genuinely be the audio of a baby crying, which automatically makes it one of the most off-putting mini-games I think I’ve ever played. Zen has you sit perfectly still or hold a particular pose, or just put the Joy-Con down – the Switch largely can’t tell the difference.

    After writing this review, I felt I should preface it by saying up front that my rating is based mostly on price. As a game itself, it is definitely unique and fun. At $20-$30, I would have given it 5 stars for being cool, quirky, and showing off the system. At $50, it feels overpriced.I had been a huge proponent for this not being a pack-in title, but after playing it.... it should have been a pack in title.It tells the story of the system.... take it anywhere you want, hand a joy-con to a friend, and play with the goal being fun more than the highest quality graphical output. Additionally, in the same way that Wii Sports introduced us to motion controls and NintendoLand introduced us to the novelty of having a second screen; this title serves to show off all the cool little things the joy-cons can do (really refined motion control, IR, HD rumble).It can be fun, but it lacks depth in the same way Wii Sports and NintendoLand did. The mini-games are enjoyable and we'll likely get good use out of them when we have people over. But there isn't much more to the game than playing a mini-game, laughing a little, and moving on to the next mini-game. Some are better than others. I was hoping this was a more robust title like Wii Party U, which had a lot of different game modes. It isn't.Ultimately, if you would have paid $50 for Wii Sports or NintendoLand then this is a title you should pick up. For others, I think you would be better off waiting until the price comes down.

    It is a good unique party game. It makes good use of the joy cons and it gives you a feel of the abilities of the switch such as using the kickstand. The only problem is what others have said is for $50 it is really short. I think they should have included this as a built in game.

    Fun game to play with a group of people! Really should have been included with the Switch itself though, or at least priced at $20 or less.
