Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit
Top Critic Average
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.
Nintendo Labo stays a nice to to fool around with. It is mostly focussed at children so for more seasoned gamers there is not much of a challenge. It is a great game with amazing possibilities but, it is not for everyone a great fit.

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.
Another cardboard kit for Nintendo Switch puts children in the driver's seat of a car, submarine and plane. And it is fun.

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.
Labo's newest kit features much more gameplay than its predecessor, but it's still best enjoyed with a junior partner in tow.
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.
Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 03: Vehicle Kit is the most challenging and intriguing to piece together so far, and the set that has the most longevity - their software/adventure pieces may not be the most in-depth RPG/open-world fest, but it's fun and puts the kit to good use. The wheel and joystick, in particular, are what's likely to carry momentum going forward - the Toy-Con that could easily be applied to future games and concepts.
The Labo Vehicle Kit is simply wonderful, and really brings Nintendo's cardboard-filled vision to life.
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.
