A mash of Lego and origami that is wholesome and unique.

7.6 / 10.0

The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit is a solid introduction to the world of Switch-powered cardboard craftables. It may get a bit tedious and repetitive during its laborious building and simplistic play sessions, but the creative freedom it allows once you dig a little deeper is truly something extraordinary.

Nintendo Labo is a great tool for learning and creation, but the games themselves lack lasting appeal.

The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit is a great interactive model/science kit to put together with your kids. If you like building or tinkering with stuff, you'll like this. If that's not your thing, you might find it tedious. Not a ton of replay value, but the construction seems sturdy. Overall, a very unique new 'game' for the Nintendo Switch.

If Nintendo can tweak the included games to make a more substantial set of electronic components, Labo will evolve into a near-perfect experience. The adult in me is totally here for that. The kid in me, however, just wants more fish to catch.

Whilst the creative process is cathartic and fun, the games on offer will appeal to the younger audience, or the families who show it off at parties.

Nintendo Labo might seem like a gimmick - and it is, to a certain extent - but there's far more it than at first meets the eye. It's a collaborative concept as rewarding in its construction as it is in its final result (much like any LEGO build you've ever worked on), and one that utilises every facet of Switch's DNA in a way only Nintendo could pull off.

Labo revives that feeling of "dang, that's nifty" by allowing you to build your own peripherals, showing you how they're programmed, and letting you tweak and customize just about every element.
