After playing the demo, I bought this for my kids thinking they would have fun but didn't really think I'd play too much. I was WRONG. Playing with the pro controller changed everything for me. Super fun and addictive. Took it to a hotel with us and played two player with joy cons. We had a blast. Kids have since switched to playing with pro controller or joy con grip style. Thumbs up grip is fun but only for a little while. Glad I bought it!! Great travel game also.

Favorite game on the Switch

I was a bit skeptical at first but have been completely floored at how incredible this game is. It's fast paced with very little downtime between matches and has a ton of variation to keep things fresh.

ARMS : Quirky but technical

The game Arms offers a brand new outlook on competitive fighting games. With a wide selection of characters and arms, the possibilities are endless. The only part that makes Arms suffer is the AI. Starting at Lv 5 and up, AI begin to read inputs in a way that makes you question the mechanics of the game itself. Nonetheless, it does not take the novelty and fun away but may bring some frustration to novice players. With colorful gameplay, inovative style and endless possibilities, ARMS by Nintendo is a must have on the Switch for anyone looking for a fun, yet challenging, fighting game.

A very fun twist for a new battle game !

That game is incredible ! Youngling and oldies can fight easily together and have fun. The fighting may seems a little bit shallow but get more complex as a lot of various arms are unlocked for each fighter. Nonetheless, all the modes are very fun to play and offer variety. A great party game for sure ! I played it a lot and I'm still having fun with it !

C'est comme un rêve!!!

This is the game I dreamed they would make since I played the boxing game in Wii sports. The controls are easy to learn but this is only the beginning of the strategy in this game. All the characters have a very different playstyle and all the arenas are different. The only drawback for this one for me is that this game isn't really good for multi-player on the small-screen of the Switch.

Been playing it for 2 days now. I haven't tried the online gaming yet. Worth purchasing if you have a Nintendo Switch. Your able to adjust the difficulty settings to make it easy or challenging. Great game for kids, teens and Adults.
