Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics Reviews
Nintendo describes Clubhouse Games as "eclectic" in their official description of the game on their website, and honestly, that's the best description of the game that I could come up with. Clubhouse Games looks good but lacks any real substance beyond its large catalog of games, many of which offer little more than the most basic of strategies. It's as if Nintendo decided to collect free games put out for Windows 98 and then give them an HD render, offering some idle amusement. Once Clubhouse Games gets discounted (and I'm sure that it won't be long), it might be worth the price tag, but I wouldn't invest in a full-price version right out of the gate.
51 Worldwide Games has all the pros and cons of compilations games, but the price tag drags this game down even further.

While hardly the most exciting package, Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is big on quantity. Unfortunately, the quality can't always match, with multiplayer restrictions and online lag being among the most sizable concerns. Solo Players probably won't find this one long-lasting, but families will fare better. Even if this won't be your first choice for gatherings, a decent time should still ensue.
It isn't as good as playing these games in real life but there is a lot of content and a lot of ways to play it.

The Switch helps bring some new life to these classic tabletop games.
51 Worldwide Games is not only a great collection, but also a kind of tutorial on the history of games from around the world. The project will not impress you with an unprecedented depth, but it will definitely be a great addition for any party with friends and a faithful companion during tedious trips.

51 Worldwide Games will have something for everyone. It won't knock your socks off, but you'll have plenty of fun with the variety on offer.
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.

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.
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.

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.
51 Worldwide games offers simple games that are more familiar in the mobile field these days. It also supports online duels and is a good distraction while waiting for a wider supply of Nintendo releases.

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is a solid compilation of some fantastic games. No, not all of them are winners, but the vast majority are engaging simple versions of the best tabletop games around. Though the single-player experience might be slightly lacking, Clubhouse Games is undoubtedly one of the best local multiplayer experiences on the Switch.
It's patently Nintendo and great multiplayer fun.
Clubhouse Games excels in both the quantity and quality of its diverse, enjoyable set of recognizable games.
Every bit of felt or wood is worth admiring here, as are the cards and pieces that call them home.
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.
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.
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 should be in everybody’s Switch library, without a doubt.
