A game we have seen many times before, What we do get differently though is the two-player mode. This makes things a lot more interesting. Despite seeing this type of game, it does play very well and plays well enough on the Switch. I soon fired through it though and never came back to it. I enjoyed what I played.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
