Critic Reviews for Mini Metro
Mini Metro's dynamic gameplay kept me engaged, yet never left me feeling overwhelmed. Whether I was simply looking for twenty minutes of casual puzzling or a burst of hardcore strategy, Mini Metro's deceptively nuanced gameplay worked on both levels equally well. With some quality of life improvements and a more detailed presentation, Mini Metro could propel itself even higher, but even with these concessions the game is easy to recommend.
Mini Metro was a surprise hit for me when I first played it on computers four years ago, and I was really excited to finally see the game hit a proper console. While the controls aren't quite as good as I was hoping they'd be, the game itself still remains enjoyable and engrossing, offering a more-than-worthwhile experience for anyone who hasn't played Mini Metro on other platforms.
For $9.99, Mini Metro provides a great deal of content and some decent, relaxing fun. I'm not a huge puzzle game fan for the most part but I did have some relaxing play sessions. If you're looking for something to play on the subway or the plane for that matter, Mini Metro might just be the perfect fit for you.
Mini Metro is a minimalist and charming puzzle/simulation game that will keep you busy for hours. Just playing the game to unlock all the cities it has to offer will have you playing for hours as you try to perfect your city planning to establish a growing network of lines that can accommodate the needs of as many commuters possible… until the whole system collapses and you have to start all over again. Be sure to check out Mini Metro on Nintendo Switch!
That being said, pointer controls would've made this absolutely fantastic for a television. It is neat that you can play up to four people on the television, but the Mini Metro I like is personal and with me anywhere I go. The developers have done a good job translating the magic to the Nintendo Switch, which was honestly my biggest worry going in.
