"Great fun with friends, confusing to split joycons first time"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I feel this game deserves 5 stars, but I have dropped 1 star due to the lack of instructions on how to split the joycons so you can play 2 player with one each…

For anyone wondering how Todo this, go into a multiplayer game, when the control prompt shows up press flip your joycon sideways and press both SL + SR at the same time, repeat this with the second joycon and you should be set

To revert back to a single control press L + R at the same time in the control menu

"Awesome party game with heaps of replay value."
5 stars"

I've spent countless hours playing this with the mates on Wii U, and the Switch version is even better. Native 1080p at 60fps looks incredible, the new battle mode is good fun, and online lobbies are easier to come by. The fact that Only 2 sets of joycon are needed for 4 players is convenient if there is already another switch in the house too!

"Good second game to release on Switch"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Mario Kart 8 is a fun casual racing game but local multiplayer is pretty taxing without a joycon wheel. Not really happy to spend over $70 for this ‘everything unlocked’ rerelease of MK8.
