Perhaps, as was the case for Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Disc Jam is just a few years and a few tweaks away from something special.
Disc Jam offers the ideal balance of simplicity and depth you’d want from an arcade-like sports experience. The action is fast and matches often tense but sadly the overall package is let down by some rougher edges and gross microtransactions. Windjammers might still reign as king of the fake Frisbee-style sports genre but Disc Jam is a decent enough imitation for the Nintendo Switch.
Disc Jam is a really well developed competitive sporting experience that feels familiar, yet futuristic.
Disc Jam could be so much more with some extended development...but if the Switch’s player-base can embrace the game and sustain a community, this could be one of the console’s go-to multiplayer titles for many.
Athletes in general will find something to love with Disc Jam. The gameplay and controls are marvelously well designed that will bring out the competitive spirit and sport adoration in any fan. Matches are relatively short, intense, and bring what many arcade experiences fail at. Just something about throwing a metal disc is so much fun. Nevertheless, that doesn't excuse only having two online game modes and a lack of stat keeping. It's a good thing that a team is throwing tournaments so often. In the end though, as a PlayStation Plus title we could have gotten worse. If you enjoy sports definitely download this game.
If you're looking for a decent online game to pass time, Disc Jam is a very suitable choice due to its good pricing and enjoyable nature. but if you want something further than just good, or if you're looking to spend lots of time in an online world, Disc Jam is not the game to be recommended as it fails to keep its appeal after a few hours.

Disc Jam, a game that takes the design philosophy of Rocket League and mixes it with the core principles of tennis, has made it's way to the Nintendo Switch. Ace.
Looking at the general state of things the key to whether you should invest in Disc Jam or not comes down to your tastes and whether you either have friends to play with or can put up with online play being hit or miss in terms of opponent availability. Playing against the CPU does have some variation but always feels quite different from a live adversary. Throw in the pretty blatant attempt to extract more money from people who’ve bought in and it isn’t a game without merit but it struggles to stand out as a game that’s suitable for everyone.
Despite its paucity of modes, Disc Jam is still incredibly addictive and fun to play.
Disc Jam is a fun co-op experience if you play it on the Nintendo Switch but it doesn't hide the fact that the game lacks content for its offline single player mode.
