Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics Reviews
Clubhouse Games 51 Worldwide Classics is the best minigame collection on Nintendo Switch, but just like Super Mario Party, playing alone is an act of futility. This will be essential for gatherings with friends once lockdown concludes, but if you intend to sit with this by yourself, you might be better sitting out entirely.
Compilation games like Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics always have a variety of hits and misses depending on your own personal taste, but there's a wide enough variety of board, card and action games here that you're sure to find a number that will appeal to you. Everything's presented with charm and warmth (terribly-written cutscenes aside) and there's an enormous amount of content on offer, whether you plan on playing solo or with others. The perfect game for lockdown? Quite possibly.
Like previous Clubhouse Games, the title of 51 Worldwide Games says a lot. Its sobriety hides true gems, transposed in virtual form with so much care that they would almost supplant reality. A tremendous homage to the games' roots and diversity, which everybody around the world can enjoy anywhere, anytime, whether solo, with friends or online partners, depending on the moment's aspirations. While this collection ups the ante on action, odds still favor classics, and Nintendo even draws few ambitious experiences gathered in this chest full of treasures, decidedly made to last, and play.

51 Worldwide Games is a nice big package of classic games - but not much more than that.
Clubhouse Games is not the best solo experience, as playing against CPUs can often feel one-sided in certain games or simply lacking that slow, methodical strategy one gets from playing against a real person instead of a fast-thinking computer.
Previous compilation titles from Nintendo have often bundled in controllers to these types of packages to help them sell, such as including a Wii Remote in Wii Play and Wii Party U, essentially making the game great value for money. 51 Worldwide Games doesn't do this. Instead, this can stand tall knowing that it compiles a number of brilliantly addictive games that can be fun to play alone or with friends. Almost all can be played in a quick pick-up and play fashion, which can be handy for those looking to play in short bursts, whether on a short commute, or in a party scenario. Online matchmaking should perhaps be refined so that people match players first, and select games after, but this aside, 51 Worldwide Games is a fantastic budget title that all Nintendo Switch owners should buy!
51 Worldwide Games should be in everybody’s Switch library, without a doubt.
We could go into detail about each game, like how reeling the fish in with your Joy-Con is more enjoyable than doing so in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, or how satisfying it is to land a series of punches in Toy Boxing, but there’s so much to cover. Rest assured, though, as what we have here is a polished, well-presented package which celebrates diversity and highlights the fondness of playing together while not breaking the bank.
51 Worldwide Games is an amazing assortment of incredible inspiration. Its innovative gameplay, and lax presentation makes for an exemplary experience for everyone. Its charm in delivering a unified understanding acquaints players with cognitive and knowledgeable demonstrations, while achieving a learning curve for those who are unfamiliar with some of its uncommon motley of mixed mini-games.
There’s little reason for you not to add 51 Worldwide Games to your collection. The title is an absolute joy to play thanks to the in-depth tutorials, variety of rules for different games and, perhaps most importantly, it saves you the hassle of taking out the physical games that are stored away somewhere in your cupboard.
Every bit of felt or wood is worth admiring here, as are the cards and pieces that call them home.
Clubhouse Games excels in both the quantity and quality of its diverse, enjoyable set of recognizable games.
It's patently Nintendo and great multiplayer fun.
Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is a solid compilation of some fantastic games.

For the amount of content, the number of hours you’ll play and the ability to play with friends, with or without the game, 51 Worldwide Games is easily one of the must-have Switch games this year.
An impressive classic game compilation, fun and easy to play (either in TV mode with a Pro controller, touch screen or with joy-con motion controllers) that lacks depth, but still can be great in multiplayer.

51 Worldwide Games is a solid mini game collection that will definitely be a fun time among family and friends. There’s some inconsistency (as well as some glaring omissions) in the mini games collection as well as some of the confusing control schemes.
Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is one of those typical titles made to be played in small bursts, when we have some time to kill or when we want some quick fun with friends and family. The wide variety of games and their intuitive and varied controls means that the game can be enjoyed by different types of people. Its minimalist and fun presentation is the icing on the cake.
