Game4V still remembers the first time I was exposed to Wii Sports, at that time the game brought a lot of different emotions because it was a rare game that helped gamers both play and exercise and after 15 years I hope Hopefully Nintendo Switch Sports will once again repeat the feat, but it seems the game is somewhat less than expected.
When you first start Nintendo Switch Sports, you will feel how long 15 years is when now the image in the game has become much sharper than before, now instead of Mii characters, they We will create our own avatar with many options for shaping and accessories to express our personality. The environment in the game has also been recreated and brought in many lighting effects, so the matches become more realistic, but each sport has only one stage, so if you play for a long time you will find it boring. mind. The sound of the game, in addition to some music to relax, the sound of the game is not too groundbreaking if not to say that I cannot distinguish many differences between the two-part Nintedo Switch Sports sound. and Wii Sports.
In terms of gameplay, Nintendo Switch Sport will bring you 6 sports, respectively: badminton, tennis, volleyball, fencing, soccer, bowling and to add more appeal Nintendo has promised to update 7 more games. The sport opens with Golf. The number of games can be quite diverse, but what about their quality? Volleyball can be the sport that helps you burn the most calories when you have to play many different roles from serving, defending to attacking that require you to focus on tracking the ball and making the appropriate moves. To be able to win in this sport, besides being quick and quick, having an understanding teammate is a key condition, but because this mini game has too many operations to grasp, it leads to you and the player playing together. Being confused is inevitable, so although it’s new and interesting, Game4V does not encourage you to choose this subject at first. Next let’s try Tennis and badminton (why does Game4V combine these two subjects into 1? simply because they have quite similar controls) basically the playing speed of badminton will be faster than that of tennis and badminton. allows you to play 1 person (I don’t understand why Tennis forces you to play 2vs2), these will be the two sports that attract the most players due to easy controls that just need to combine a simple button. is that you can perform small drops to force the opponent to move away from position. Badminton-tennis matches sometimes take place quite quickly, but the inner fire is only more than special, now with the HD Rumble mechanism inside each Joy con, the feeling of hitting the ball is reproduced better than ever. time out.
Bowling is also a pretty good sport in Nintendo Switch Sports, the simple operation makes those who just need a little experience in this sport in real life will quickly reach 150 points, but the interesting thing is in the game mode. Special level when on the ball, there will be many obstacles that require you to really master the ball to defeat your opponent. One thing that makes me very sad is that the 100-pin mechanism in the old version does not return. But in the following two sports, the weak point of the game is first revealed is sword fighting, at first I don’t understand because Game4V’s swords don’t follow the control direction, so I changed to two joy-con The difference is to realize everything is because the ability to simulate the movement of the game is special especially at diagonal angles, so this sport is for you to play for fun, but it’s fine to compete for points. In party games, it’s easy to argue among friends. Soccer is the sport that makes Game4V most disappointed about Nintendo Switch Sport because it has set too high expectations after watching the game’s promotional clips. When you buy the physical version of the game you will get a set of accessories to tie on to your legs when playing king sport, but this is a pretty useless item because you need to hold the Joy-con to do some things. operations such as heading, moving, …. This makes many gamers feel angry because the physical version costs 10 dollars more than the digital version, which is mainly due to the aforementioned accessory. Not to mention that the game’s soccer mode is pretty bad, it’s like an imperfect copy of Rocket League when the manipulations are somewhat limited as well as the control of the balls is also quite annoying. During almost 4 hours of playing the game, Game4V rarely chose football again.
If you just play Wii Sports and then play Nintendo Switch Sports, everything will seem like a huge step forward, but if you have played similar games on other systems like Kinect Sport on Xbox, then Nintendo Switch Sports nothing special, if not a step backwards because when using Kinect you will not need to hold any accessories at all, making exercising with Kinect much easier. But fortunately Nintendo Switch Sports is that Microsoft is leaving the game development process behind, so for now we can only be satisfied with this Switch version.
