I think its ok, we have had great fun as a family playing. Don't get the negativity, as this game is clearly not aimed at people who frequent these forums. Heaven forbid a game gets made that caters to other people tastes.

I wish they'd just released a new Sports title, this console and its joycons are perfect for Sports/Mario Party etc

I really wouldn't be surprised if this game ends up at 1M lifetime if the Switch keeps selling well.

1-2-Switch isn't half as bad as people make it out to be. People also hated on Wii Sports for no good reason.
