Buy it if you're looking for deep, twitchy multiplayer action. Try it if you'll be sticking to single player.
Try it if you really want to see how hard it is to make branching narrative work on this scale. Otherwise, just catch up on Westworld.
If you have a Switch, get this game. If you don't have a Switch, get one, then get this game.
Those with a high tolerance for repeating difficult 2D shooting challenges should buy it. Everyone else should try it in Simple mode or just by watching on YouTube.
Buy it if you're ready to be an exceptionally patient pet owner. Watch some videos online otherwise.
Buy it for the excellent collection of built-in Nintendo-made levels. Get the Wii U version if you want to actually make your own.
Buy it if you want to take a relaxing trip to the great outdoors without ever leaving your home.
If you ever had a good time with a previous Rock Band game, buy it and remember what you've been missing.
