Has anyone else been playing this? I see a lot of people writing it off, but I've been having a ton of fun with it! I mean, it's a party game, so you need a group of friends for it, but it's definitely up there with Wii Sports and Wii Play for me... which is a shame it wasn't bundled in. There are a ton of cool games in it though. Even the kinda dumb ones (well, alright, they're all pretty dumb) are really fun for at least a little bit!
What are your favorite games in it? The wizard one looked awesome when my friends were playing it. Joy-Con Rotation and the marble box one were both cool in terms of their tech. The controllers are crazy accurate!
Well, I bit the bullet so to speak. Ok, actually I bought this off eBay thinking somebody would outbid me. Oh well, $37 with free shipping, not bad.
Popped this game in yesterday after work, and messed around a bit. My 7yr old was not interested in playing, but I did get him to play a game or two of Quick Draw, but he was not putting any effort into it. My wife was doing homework, and my youngest (4yrs old) isn't allowed to play the Switch yet. Any parents know what the hands of a 4yr old look like, amirite?
So it only gives you access to a few of the 28(?) games at the beginning. No Milk and no Ball Count. Come on, the main reason I bought this game was to experience HD Rumble, more on that later. After a few rounds of double-fisted Quick Draw (I was able to get a tie by firing both guns at exact same time) the game opened up the Team Play and Random modes, along with the remaining 20 games or so.
HD Rumble, I'm pretty impressed. It really did feel like there were marbles in the JoyCons. The Shake the Bottle game (wow, hand gestures, just wow) you could feel a slight fizz, and then bigger bubbles. And not sure what other games really make use of this, the Safe Cracker game, you could feel a distinct difference when you'd hit the right number, but pretty minor. Anyhoo... HD Rumble is cool, and I hope more games make use of it.
As for 1-2 Switch itself, I'll reserve judgment until after I play this in a group setting (most likely involving alcohol too).
I grabbed it, as well. The HD Rumble stuff is pretty cool, but the game doesn't have much depth or longevity. It's something to pull out when demoing the Switch to new people, though some of the mini-games are kind of terrible.
