Super Beat Sports succeeds at doing something familiar but fresh with the rhythm genre and is a blast to play with friends.

Breathe deeply, believe in yourself, and become one with the rhythm. Super Beat Sports is packed with personality and cheerful beats, and, now unshackled from Apple TV, has found a more suitable audience to tap into on Nintendo Switch. Worthy of your time, it presents an unbeatable addition to the Nintendo eShop that, as with its setting, is quite simply out of this world.

Overall, I really have enjoyed the time I’ve had with Super Beat Sports and would easily recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good rhythm game. There’s a reasonable variety of playstyles, a load of levels to complete (including Pro levels that amp up the challenge substantially), some entertaining unlockable costumes and implements to hit the balls with, and some simple but catchy music that helps you feel the beat. Specifically, though it requires the least sense of rhythm of the bunch I found BuddyBall to be a real highlight and a competitive game my friends and I will likely continue to return to for its variety and creativity. Harmonix has really hit it out of the park with this relatively simple but well-executed collection of mini games!

Being a Harmonix title, it only seems fitting that they included a calibration to sync the visuals and audio if you are having difficulties. I applaud the desire to continue releasing games that can be classified in the music genre, as the almost yearly release of Rock Band became quite tiresome. Super Beat Sports shows they can still lead the way in innovation with rhythm-based titles with a colorful and charming spin. I was initially caught off guard on how sharp and clean the visuals look, both in portable mode and when docked.

Beat the Super Sport for sure is to buy the number one, for fans of rhythm games, especially if you have a few friends with whom to play, but if not friends, for the purchase of the game should be more substantial arguments, such as whether to play one? Answer, not so interesting, like a girlfriend, boyfriend or dog. The game supports motion control to play with such control is a pleasure. Again, if you are a big fan of rhythm games, and they are now in short supply, then you can take the game and immerse yourself in this musical extravaganza.

Harmonix, the fine folks who brought us some of our favorite rhythm games over the years, has a brand new title available on the Nintendo Switch. A cute family friendly rhythm game that brings the rhythm genre to its basics; a fun and easy one to hop into that the whole family can enjoy.

At this point in time, Super Beat Sports is definitely one of the best multiplayer experiences available for Switch.

Super Beat Sports is a fun rhythm game that's one of the better co-op and competitive offerings on the Switch. Some game modes may be hit-and-miss, but this is an above-average title. The Whacky Ball and Rhythm Racket modes were the most fun I've had with a local multiplayer in a long time, and I'd recommend the purchase of Super Beat Sports based on those two modes alone.

Super Beat Sports may seem simple on the outside, but once you begin to climb the ladders in each mini-game, the challenge of this rhythm-based game becomes very clear.
