★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Brought this for my 8 year old nephew after he got a Nintendo Switch for Christmas. He LOVES it. So many options of how you play on the Switch too, which means it can be a bit more of an active game. Think Streetfighter for kids.

ARMS is awesome. No regrets on buying.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: I got this game from my cousin when we went to walmart. Expected absolute trash from what I heard over the internet. I was extremely surprised. I play this game on a regular basis, have 100+ hours in it and can't get enough. It has plenty of content to keep me playing. Absolute must buy.

ARMS Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Nintendo's power has always been in their wide assortment of IP. Mario, Zelda, and Metroid were always the headliners, and it seemed like they were resting on their laurels a bit before some new stuff started to trickle out.

Arms (Nintendo Switch)

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: While Nintendo may still reign as top tier in platforming games, there's another genre that the company has always had success in as well: fighting games. I don't always mean your standard 1v1 side view fighter either. Look at Punch-Out! for an example of that.

ARMS

★★★★★ 3.4
Verdict: I am torn concerning ARMS on the Nintendo Switch. There are things I like about this game, and there are things I absolutely despise. I am very thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased this fighting game after the failures of the PR and Marketing firm working for Nintendo.

ARMS lacks legs - ARMS review

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: It's easy to draw comparisons between ARMS and Splatoon, Nintendo's paintball shoot-‘em-up that debuted on Wii U in 2015. Both games represent major new first-party IPs – a rarity for Nintendo – featuring stylized visuals and gameplay that usurps their respective genre norms.
Pros: Basic mechanics are easy to learn, Fun suite of multiplayer options, V-Ball and Hoops
Cons: Motion controls just aren't precise enough, Characters seem cool, but lack backstory, dialogue, and personality, Fighter and Arm selection needs more detail

Arms

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: Let's first take a look at what Nintendo's big new IP is all about. Arms is a fighting game where in 3D arenas you'll go up against a single opponent, and you'll beat up each other by using combination attacks, grabs, charged strikes and well, that's pretty much it, at least at first glance.

ARMS - Nintendo Switch Review

★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: ‘Arms' brings back the fun of the Nintendo Wii, but it's most fun if you don't take it too seriously.
Pros: Surprising depth, nuance and strategy, Motion controls are a lot of fun, Good variety of modes keeps things interesting, Tons of unlockable Arms will keep completionists busy
Cons: Controls aren't precise enough for fast fights, AI takes advantage of control scheme issues, No remappable buttons

ARMS (for Nintendo Switch)

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: I had a blast playing ARMS, and recommend it to any Switch owner looking for a game to play with friends. Its approach to fighting games is as offbeat as Splatoons ' approach is to shooters, and that gives it a very unique charm that will appeal to many players outside of the fighting game...
Pros: Deceptively deep, deliberate mechanics. Strong variety of fighters, ARMS, and modes
Cons: Limited customization options for online play. Game formats and combinations become repetitive if you don't fall in love with the action

Arms Review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Arms' clever take on boxing provides a simple premise with a startling amount of depth for those who would seek to master the stretching appendages. Its rapidly evolving lobby system had me sticking around for "just one more match.

ARMS Stretches out Comedy Combat on Nintendo Switch

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your arms were replaced with slinkies with boxing gloves attached? We all know you have, no sense in pretending you haven't imagined it before.

Arms

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: Most fighting games are cut from the same cloth as trailblazers like Street Fighter II and Virtua Fighter , beholden to side-view perspectives and an array of melee and projectile attacks.

Punching Up

★★★★ 4.1
Verdict: Concept: Punch, jump, dash, and dodge your way to victory in this zany 3D fighting game Graphics: Colorful almost to the point of excess, Arms is a bright visual treat Sound: I never felt attached to the music, but each tune is fitting for the action on display Playability: Though motion controls...

ARMS

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Arms is another polished Nintendo title and a welcome addition to the Switch library. The characters that have been created and the world that they live in is terrific it's just a shame we don't get to explore it more.

Arms (Nintendo Switch)

★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: Arms is a strange, endearing little game. Emphasis on the little. It's the newest game from Nintendo, a sorta marquee title for the Nintendo Switch. Already heralded as "the Splatoon for fighting games," there's a lot riding on the game. And surprisingly, many, many ways to play it.

Arms (Switch) Review

★★★★★
Verdict: Arms is a fantastically unique fighting game, without the pieces that make fighting games unapproachable for new players. A colorful style and wicked character designs push the wacky ideas to their limits, and all of it comes together for a proper package.

Arms review

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Given how Splatoon managed to build upon its skimpy initial offering (albeit one that was available at a lower price, it's worth remembering, unlike this), there's every reason to believe that Nintendo will come good. Regardless, though, it's worth making the jump right now.

Arms (Nintendo Switch)

★★★★★ 4.5
Verdict: For a company that is so often accused of relying too heavily on its existing franchises, Nintendo has been refreshingly open to creating new intellectual properties of late. Splatoon famously came out of nowhere back in 2015 and established Nintendo as a key player in the online shooter genre, and...

ARMS Review – Nintendo Springs Another Hit On Us

★★★★ 4.2
Verdict: ARMS is a game that could have only come from Nintendo today. It's bright, colorful, fun for all ages and turns the boxing genre on its head with splendid results, not unlike what Splatoon accomplished for the shooter genre.
Pros: Satisfying mechanics, Tight controls, Variety of modes, Very polished
Cons: Grand Prix mode a little underwhelming, Team based tethered matches suck

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Toby Berger springs into action in Nintendo's wacky new Switch exclusive, Arms.
Pros: The game's zany universe is very Nintendo. Graphics, gameplay, and sound design are all top notch. Characters are well-designed and varied. Multiplayer is fantastic

Arms (Nintendo Switch)

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: Welcome to an explosion of colour, whirring arms and massive weapons. The world of ARMS sounds like a joke that went too far, but it really works. Why are these people fighting with weird stretchy arms? What happened to everyone in this crazy world?
Pros: Lots of fun, Great with friends
Cons: Steep learning curve, Lack of content, Poor tutorials

Arms (Nintendo Switch)

★★★★★
Verdict: It was no surprise that the Nintendo Switch got first-party titles from popular franchises such as Mario and Zelda , but few would have predicted Arms, a new fighting game revealed at the Switch launch . Arms pits fighters with extendable arms (hence the name) against each other in an arena.

Arms Is Another Great Reason to Own a Nintendo Switch

★★★★★
Verdict: Arms joins Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon in the pantheon of wonderfully accessible Nintendo multiplayer experiences that also happen to be great competitive games. It's a blast to play when you just want to swing around some Joy-Cons with your friends, but it also appeals to the hardcore fighting...
