But this isn't the mainstream must-play like Harmonix has had in its history. Heck, it isn't even a must-play for people who like quirky little rhythm games, because others have done it better in the past.

While not offering too much from the Apple TV entry, Super Beat Sports is a serviceable rhythm party game. Its simple controls and infectious soundtrack will have you tapping your toes, but a couple of games in the collection might be a bit disappointing to play with friends.

I wanted so much more than what I got from this game.

It's definitely fun in short bursts, and is perfectly suited to the Switch with its casual, light-hearted multiplayer. That said, it's just not especially engaging or memorable. As far as rhythm games go, this one going to be a bit like Marmite. As a rhythm game. it's not nearly as quirky or interesting as something like Rhythm Heaven - and as a sports game, it can't top Wii Sports. As a combination of both, it's unique - but the sum isn't as good as its parts.
