Clusterpuck 99 may not have the most ambitious features available on the Nintendo Switch and while an online mode would certainly be appreciated, its local multiplayer allowing up to eight players and its simple controls help it become a fun and enjoyable experience that bases itself on the unusual mix of football, air hockey and 2D platforms.

ClusterPuck 99 is certainly worth considering if you plan on hosting an eight-person party any time soon for a night of local multiplayer action. It won't be the star attraction, but it'll entertain friends and family for more brief periods. Where the game falls short is its lack of online multiplayer. It would have been great to be able to team up with the same number of people online. Additional modes could have then been included such as a competitive mode. Without online, what's left is a game that just isn't anywhere near as entertaining for solo players and is very hard to recommend. If you are interested in this, ideally you'll at least a few people around to play this game with.
Clusterpuck 99 is a good deal if you are playing with a large group of people. It's simple enough that anyone can pick up on it. There are a variety of maps to play from. The game seems very polished and is obvious that thought was put into it. The A.I. could be adjusted a little bit to resemble a actual human opponent more. I would not recommend this game if you are playing alone due to this.
