Switch Sports Review in Progress: A bare bones experience without online

At this stage, Switch Sports feels like an unambitious re-tread of a 16-year-old game with very little in the way of options. All eyes are now on the online modes when they go up, to see if they breathe new life into it.

  • Football is an absolute winner
  • The new 'Special' bowling mode is great fun
  • Still a good laugh with friends
  • Volleyball is a bore
  • Complete lack of any meaningful options for each sport
  • Seemingly no offline player progression at all
