ARMS 

 

I am torn concerning ARMS on the Nintendo Switch. There are things I like about this game, and there are things I absolutely despise. I am very thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased this fighting game after the failures of the PR and Marketing firm working for Nintendo. ARMS is not worth sixty dollars. It is worth twenty to twenty-five dollars at most. Even than that might be a bit high. We paid twice that much so we feel like a lot of money was wasted on ARMS.

The issues families will have with ARMS is violence, increased aggression, poor online match making and more. The shtick in ARMS is these characters have spring based arms that can go a long ways away from them. Families can even move their arms around while in flight. There are slight curves that can be done. Not as impressive as you might think. The next little nuance in ARMS is the hands. There are different hands with different skills in ARMS.

Families can go through the ten fights of Grand Prix to earn twenty-seven coins. Once you have thirty coins you can play a mini game where you might get a new hand. It takes time to adapt to the controls in ARMS In fact it never felt natural holding the Joycons in that fashion. Grabs are very overpowered in ARMS. Players that time them correctly can combo juggle their opponent from start to death without taking a hit.

The modes in ARMS are Grand Prix, Versus, Party Match (online), Ranked Match (online), Friends (online), Local (nearby Players), Training, Help, Stats, Set Arms, and Get Arms. I am shocked at how light the content is in ARMS. There are eleven fighters in ARMS. The game play mechanic in ARMS is very interesting. It does not always work properly in terms of targeting though.

I like a few of the different levels in ARMS. Basketball, volleyball, and target hitting are some of the more interesting ones. The stages in ARMS are different. If you lose an online match in ARMS you get one coin. I have no idea what you get for winning. Nintendo is known for making micro games, and ARMS fits right into that category quite nicely if you know what I mean.
