    Among Us is a brilliant multiplayer experience and one that’s sorely needed given the current climate. While I wouldn’t recommend playing this against randoms online, if you can gather nine friends and set up a voice chat, then you’re guaranteed one of the best gaming experiences of 2020.

    Among Us brings to the Switch the award-winning experience of 2020's Best Multiplayer Game. Giving us the best of both worlds, the use of touch screen integrated with the control stick movements, at least in portable mode, makes it very comfortable to play. It's really worth it, even if you already have it on other platforms; the Switch experience, at least for me, was better than either on PC and on mobile.

    Among Us is a superb multiplayer game that is great on Nintendo Switch. It's easy to pick up, but difficult to put down.

    A good port of an excellent game that works perfectly despite requiring a Nintendo Switch Online subscription and isn't missing anything that the mobile or PC version doesn't already have.

    Flaws aside, Among Us is a clever game that deserves its time in the spotlight. It works a surprisingly complex concept into a simple and accessible package where matches are quick, fun, usually hilarious, and sometimes even intense.

    Among Us is an instantly accessible and super-addictive casual gaming experience that serves up some hilarious whodunnit hijinks in short bursts that are perfectly suited to portable play. There are a few niggles here with regards to controls that make communication fussier than it really needs to be, but this is a fine port that finally enables Switch gamers to jump in and see what all the fuss is about with this most unlikely of gaming sensations.

    Among Us is a game made for those who have a lot of online friends or followers. If you don't fit that description then you can have fun but will more than likely get irritated while playing with random players who obviously have no idea what they're doing.

    The game gets boring very quickly. The tasks are repetitive. Most of the time you "discuss". Actually, you exchange mini-words and vote. SoThe game gets boring very quickly.

The game is massively overhyped! Expand

    The game keeps kicking me out saying I don’t have the latest version, but I do. It also takes forever to find a game. And it doesn’t tellThe game keeps kicking me out saying I don’t have the latest version, but I do. It also takes forever to find a game. And it doesn’t tell you if a game is full before you click on it and then it takes you to the main screen and you have to redo finding one. When you do get in you’re stuck in the little spaceship for way to long while other people try to find the game. And then you can get kicked out still for “not having the most recent version”. Paying $5 for this game is too much. Plus you have to have Nintendo Switch Online which is dumb. The people are rude on it as well. Getting into the game and then demanding you switch the parameters. This game is terrible. Expand
