Nintendo’s popular sport-centered game compilation series returns with Nintendo Switch Sports. Players can once again enjoy motion-controlled madness like it’s 2006 with a collection of sports new and old. While fans have been excited to get their hands on the nostalgic franchise, is it worth the hype?

Nintendo Switch Sports currently sits at a 75 on Metacritic, with most critics agreeing that it’s a solid sports party game. However, it lacks variation, launching with only six sports: Badminton, Tennis, Bowling, Soccer, Volleyball, and Chambara. While Nintendo Switch Sports will add golf in a future update, the current lineup is sparse.

Reviews could not account for online multiplayer functionality either, as Nintendo enables online features in some titles on launch day, including Nintendo Switch Sports. You can see some of the standout scores below:
