There are quite a few cars to choose from, including DLC cars such as the Delorean from Back to the Future. After picking a car, you can customized it with countless possibilities. You can change the paint scheme, color, paint type (gloss/flat, etc.), wheels, boost color, hat, and antenna topper...
Whether you use a controller or keyboard and mouse, the controls are fairly simple. You are driving a car pushing a ball around, with forward, reverse, boost, power-slide and jump as your only real abilities to learn. The difficulty comes in learning to use them at the right times. Doing this wi...
Get the ball in the net, soccer at it's simplest. This game is physics driven, using different cars as players, making it a fast-paced and exciting game with a basic underlying objective. Being easy to understand, just about anyone can get the hang of the game after a single play session.
Despite having a very high skill ceiling and 48 tracks to master, MK8DX makes it less intimidating for beginners by including the "Smart steering" and "Auto acceleration" options. The former option automatically prevents collision with walls and the latter option glues your fo...
MK8DX features 48 unique race tracks, including tracks running through a haunted mansion, an airport, a medieval castle, and even outer space. Each track also has a completely different layout, providing its own set of twists, turns, loops, and shortcuts for you to enjoy and master. As a result, th...
Other than MK8DX's 3 main racing modes, there are also 5 battle modes, focusing on battles in arena-like tracks. There's the Balloon Battle, where you have to pop or steal your opponent's balloons, Renegade Roundup, where racers are split into teams of cops and robbers, Bob-omb Blas...
Every race in MK8DX is a fast-paced battle for first place. You drive at high-speeds, drift to gain speed boosts, fly off ramps, and collect mystery boxes that give you random power ups. It can be one-use weapons to set back your opponents. Or it can be one-use items that boost you in some way. F...
Every character (except Golden Mario) and race track is unlocked from the beginning, leaving you to only unlock new kart parts. While these are very good for improving/adjusting your kart's performance and looks, you probably won't ever use the vast majority of the parts. This can cause unl...
Even though Splatoon 2 rewards skillful play, having accurate aim is not as important as it is in most third-person shooters. This is mostly because it's a game about territory control, requiring you to recolor areas of the map to win, so you can contribute to your team's victory by just sh...
While all multiplayer levels have gorgeous visuals, featuring very detailed urban landscapes, their most noteworthy aspect is their adequate size. They're just large enough that a match doesn't feel like a claustrophobic shootout that ends in less than a minute. And they're small enough...
Each multiplayer match in Splatoon 2 lasts only about 3 minutes, with about 1 minute of wait time between each match. This can be very useful in cases when you have some spare time, but can't afford to play a long match. It's a nice change in an era dominated by competitive multiplayer gam...
Splatoon 2 has its own horde mode called Salmon Run, where you and up to 4 other players fight off waves of Salmons while collecting their golden eggs. It's fairly challenging, requiring you to properly utilize your weapons, learn salmon types and their abilities, and understand how to best coo...
Most modern shooters are all about lethal weaponry, gore, death, and getting the most kills, but Splatoon 2 steps away from this formula. You use paint guns and brushes to color the map and the opponents, but it's never about going just after the opponents. Even if you manage to take someone ou...
Despite being the most popular multiplayer mode in Splatoon 2, Salmon Run is on a schedule, sometimes having gaps of up to 2 days between each appearance. It's not as bad as it was upon release, but it can still be quite aggravating when you can't play Salmon Run when you finally have the t...
In Party Match, the game puts you into a lobby with 20 other players, and then randomly shuffles everyone into groups for randomized game modes such a V-ball and Hoops. Even the way it's set up is visually interesting, with different player avatars being shuffled and mixed into various circles....
The arms stretch for long-range jabs and punches, meaning you can smack your opponent from across the arena. This adds a whole new depth to boxing and means you will be timing your dodges and ducks much differently than normal fighting games. Your arms also serve as weapons, and can be detached fr...
Arms offers a few clever game modes to add to the brawl action that go above and beyond the typical fights and help to add some spice to the game. Modes are quick to play and easy to learn, so they are very accessible for players. In Skill Shot, you'll try to punch down popup targets as your op...
Each fighter has interchangeable arms that act as weapons and provide a variety of different effects, such as freezing your opponent, stunning, or knocking them over, when charged up. Besides offering a plethora of different effects, arm weapons also allow you to play on the strengths or weaknesses...
No matter what kind of fighting style you're looking for, the game has enough variety where everyone can find a fighter that they enjoy playing. Each of the 15 fighters has their own set of moves, custom interchangeable arms that act as weapons, and their own stat pool which consists of things...
If you opt to use the motion controls, there may be a little imprecision in your punches due to the way the punches curve and how you flick your wrists. The analog sticks will almost always be a bit more precise and responsive (although arguably not as fun to some players).
Super Bomberman R takes the classic gameplay of the Bomberman series and holds on tight. It's got familiar controls, and the overall concept hasn't changed: blow people up without getting blown up. You can only move in 4 directions, and are able to place or throw bombs in the spot where you...
While it's clearly no RPG, Super Bomberman R has a delightful story mode that supports drop in co-op play if you want to play with someone else. The cartoon characters and ridiculous antics make it quite fun to play, and interestingly enough, it has a decent variety of missions. You won't...
The art style looks amazing with pleasing colors and 3D models that make the platforming levels vibrant and cheerful. All the pinks, blues, and yellows brighten up the environments. The round shapes of the cutesy characters and the world are and interesting with a lot of pop, like 3D illustrations...
Kirby Star Allies is simple but entertaining enough for anyone to enjoy, especially kids. The family-friendly gameplay, kid-friendly art style, and Kirby's cute design are pretty enticing for younger ages. With the couch co-op mode, parents can also play this game with their kids for game night...
Playing Kirby Star Allies through the co-op mode with up to four players helps to give the game more life. Working together to solve platforming challenges and take out enemies makes everything unpredictable in a good way, since your friends might suddenly figure out a helpful trick or find a path...
You can make Kirby eat enemies and then use their skills as his own, constantly changing up how you play. Whenever you see a monster whose skills you want to use for yourself, you have to jump along the level and avoid any obstacles in your way to get close enough and eat it. Eating a monster with...
The platforming gameplay in Kirby Star Allies is great with some neat puzzle-like strategy in each level. You progress through each colorful map from left to right while battling enemies and figuring out the little environmental puzzles in your way, like chunks of ice cubes that you have to melt th...
The computer-controlled co-op allies always know exactly what to do, taking a lot of the challenge and possibly fun out of the game. When you're playing with actual friends, you're all figuring things out together and learning along the way. Unfortunately it's not the same experience wi...
For the most part, once you figure out how to get past the obstacles in certain levels, you'll know how to clear several more worlds. The same types of challenges pop up again and again, like knowing when to eat a fire enemy to melt past chunks of ice, or eating a flying enemy to close a gap th...
It's a shame that you can't connect online to play co-op. This would have been a nice feature for anyone who isn't able to get together with friends or family but still wants to play the game with other people. The devs so far have made no announcements about wanting to implement online...
