My son loves skeeball and bowling, unfortunately both of these games need to be unlocked by playing more of the mundane games the collect tickets (in game currency) to purchase said games. Needless to say, my son doesn't want to play and now his 31 year old father has been playing home run derby non-stop in an attempt to unlock the games he wants to play... Now, I don't really mind this to much as I am a gamer and well, home run derby is pretty sweet, however 2k should have really had an option allowing parents to just simply unlock games so your kid can just play what they want to play without the hassle of going through hours of H.R.D.Regardless, I can see this game being a 4 star game ONCE the games are unlocked, its a shame that so far no games make use of the built in technology like Wii Bowling... this is more just press the x button and move the joystick... simple enough for kids, but hey, rolling your wrist forwards or backwards isn't exactly "complex"....Parents, be prepared for some home run derby to unlock the games your children actually want to play. Dads, man your 6pack, there will be some long innings.
Most games are locked at the start until you progress by earning tickets. We got the game because my five year old wanted to play ski-ball. That was locked, so we had to grind games we didn't like to earn 150 tickets to unlock ski-ball. Motion controls also locked until a high score in each game is earned.Only found a couple of games that are fun to play. Some games, like Light Speed, are difficult to play due to poor graphics and tiny on-screen indicators. Maybe the fun games are the ones locked behind tickets.This is mini game collection, so I had low expectations, but the game still disappoints.
Used to own this game on the Wii many years ago and LOVED it. We were very excited to see it on the Switch, but after we bought it, it is disappointingly boring. You have to play to unlock motion control features, which seems very lame. That is part of the reason it is so boring. So maybe it will get better as we play, but for now we are just wishing we could have retuned it.
