Crash Drive 2
Top Critic Average
Genres: Racing, Arcade
On paper, Crash Drive 2 should run out of gas, but with Joy-Cons in hand, it succeeds in spite of itself. It's not for multiplayer that it's a success – the lack of local support ensures that – but it triumphs as a solo romp, as there's plenty to accomplish and laugh at.
Crash Drive 2 is a decent game that doesn't exceed at anything in particular. The fundamentals are all there, like good controls and a lot of goals to work towards, but the gameplay loop is just too simple to be worth more than a few minutes of play at a time. If you just want something to play while you're waiting for the bus then you could do worse, but it's worth noting that the mobile version of the game is free on both iOS and Android. The game fits into the short-bursts niche that mobile gaming has carved out for itself, so perhaps it's best to pass on the Switch version; after all, you can't beat free.
