    Astro Bears Party is one of those games that anyone can instantly pick up and have a laugh with. The game is really impressively designed with solid gameplay and lovely aesthetics – in fact, the only fault I can find is that I wish there were more modes to play. You won’t be playing it for hours on end, but that’s not the point – grab some friends, grab a Joy-Con, and have a great time.

    It’s held back by its repetition – the music, the modes; even the four bears get old after a while. Bust this out at a party for 30 minutes of fun, but don’t expect your friends to beg for more at the next get together.

    On its own, Astro Bears Party doesn’t have a huge amount to offer, but everything above is still extremely solid. Ideally, I’d see this game being pulled out alongside a bunch of other smaller multiplayer games, like Astro Duel Deluxe, or the bigger hits like Mario Kart. For the price, it does the job, but I honestly just wish there was more on offer.

    Not so hot alone, Astro Bears Party comes alive with friends only to quickly run out of steam.

    Astro Bears Party has a solid concept yet it fails to deliver any long-lasting good times. In other words, it's like swatting a delicious-looking salmon from the river only to realise that it doesn't have much meat on its bones.

    Astro Bears Party plays more like a tech demo that is a few days into development rather than a complete package. The concept is a neat idea, but it seems as if the developer got the absolute basics up and running and then decided to halt work to rollout the title. The amount of content in this game is so underwhelming, as a result, that it’s hard to justify putting any real cash towards it. At best this is perhaps suitable for a few short rounds of multiplayer, or for any younger people who are new to video games. Otherwise you should look elsewhere if you are seeking a new party game on the Nintendo Switch.

    Astro Bears Party is not a very ambitious game and it could perfectly fit within a bigger production. It still manages to bring some fun to a multiplayer session for a very short amount of time before falling into an overwhelming feeling of monotony, mostly due to its lack of content.

    It is, as the official website itself says, "a simple-to-learn and hard-to-master" party game- so, the more players, the better!
    But since the title already suggests that it should be a party, and a lot of reviews already talk about how it is best in a group with friends, I want to give my two cents on the single player mode.
    The single player can be fun in and of itself, IF you do enjoy beating your own highscore (like I do) time and time again, even without a global leaderboard.

    While I do wish there were more modes, for both multi- and single player, the game has a well justified price at just below $5, since it is sure to bring a fun time to you and your friends.

It has no depth, limited challenge, and only 2 game modes which divide neatly into single player and multiplayer. The single-player is basically what you'd get if you had the classic game snake in 3D on a sphere. The multiplayer is just your and other players' bears running around the planet, leaving behind ribbons you can't run into. Despite the lack of depth, and how simplistic this game is, it's a heck of a lot of fun given its price-point. My friends and I put a solid 40-50 minutes into this game just repeatedly trying to beat each other, cut one another off, and strategize and create traps for each other. Don't get this game thinking it's going to be a great game, or have any depth at all. Get it if you like dumb, stupid, silly, simple fun on a minimal budget. Expand

    If you've ever played "Achtung! Die kurve" (now known as curve fever) or any other similar game you know that this will be a blast to playIf you've ever played "Achtung! Die kurve" (now known as curve fever) or any other similar game you know that this will be a blast to play with your friends.

    Super fun to play 4 players, 3 player and 2 player is ok but not nearly as fun as the maximum, keep that in mind if you don't get together with friends that often.

    DO NOT buy this game if you are alone, the single player is not even worth a dollar. It's kinda like snake and it's fun to go for a big score but without any global leader boards it quickly loses it's charm.

    If you want a fun and quick game to play with your friends this might be the best option out there for the switch right now, not kidding. It's easily worth 5$ even though there are only 4 playable characters and one game mode.

    Great idea, could be a lot better but it's still really fun.
