Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit
Top Critic Average
Labo's newest kit features much more gameplay than its predecessor, but it's still best enjoyed with a junior partner in tow.
The Labo Vehicle Kit is simply wonderful, and really brings Nintendo's cardboard-filled vision to life.
It speaks volumes for the future of Labo and everything it has to offer, especially since there's a limitless world of possibilities as to what could possibly come next. It looks like, for now, Nintendo has nailed the vehicular aspects, however, and I can't wait to see the next project that comes through the finish line.
There's some excellent design work on display here, but it's just lacking that touch of polish that a finished product needs and while the adventure mode is good it just highlights how little use LABO has outside of its own wheelhouse.
Fun to both build and play with, the Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit is a very unique video gaming experience that is sure to delight kids that are already fans of both construction toys and Nintendo.
Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit is another fascinating, clever step in Nintendo's Labo line, one that still managed to be as enjoyable as the first time I started folding cardboard months ago. The building is still far better than the playing, and adults will likely find it too simple, but kids and creatives will once again find loads to while away their time with here.
We spent two weeks with the Labo Vehicle Kit and it drove us a bit mad. The construction of the car, plane, and submarine is as great as ever, but the open world game at the heart of it is a bit of a dud.
The Labo Vehicle Kit is a meticulously designed and often fascinating building experience. The Toy-Con models fit together perfectly and encourage curiosity within anyone who engages with them. While the gaming element is an improvement over previous Labo Kits, it's not going to suck you in for countless hours. As an intriguing way to while away the hours over a weekend, the Labo Vehicle Kit shines, but don't expect much more unless you're planning to flex your creative muscles in the Toy-Con Garage.
The third Labo kit is perhaps the best one yet; it offers a solid building experience and a genuinely entertaining way to control three distinct modes of transport, as well as a fleshed-out gameworld which is not only packed with things to do, but is augmented by a range of mini-game modes which will provide many hours of enjoyment – although the multi-player ones require you to have a second Vehicle Kit to hand, which might not be feasible for everyone.
The Labo Vehicle Kit is a remarkable craft kit and game that lets you build your own steering wheel, joystick, and even submarine controls to control vehicles on your Nintendo Switch.
