    Another great indie title makes its way to Switch where it’s a perfect fit. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is wonderful in both multiplayer and played solo. It might take some time to get your friends acclimated to its synergistic brand of gameplay, but the sense of teamwork you get from a few well-played levels just can’t be found anywhere else.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime caught us by surprise; we were expecting a great multiplayer party experience but ended up with something much more than that. If you have a great bunch of friends and the necessary controllers, be sure to gather everyone round for some challenging but hilarious teamwork. If you don’t, or if you prefer playing alone, load the game up anyway and enjoy an intense, strategically-minded campaign with a warm and welcoming exterior. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime deserves to be played and should most definitely be on your eShop wishlist – we’re in love, for sure.

    Whether you want fun as a group or something to occupy your alone time, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime can check both boxes. Charming visuals and addictive gameplay are always a potent combination, but the game just slightly lacks that wow factor needed to be deserving of an even higher score.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime starts from an unusual plot and goes on to become a remarkable game on the Nintendo Switch catalog. Thanks to its fun and polished gameplay and to an experience that can be thoroughly enjoyed whether on multiplayer or by a single player, this is something that can grow on any player and warm up their hearts to the gameplay.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime may be procedurally generated but what it lacks in well-designed locales it more than makes up for with well thought out combat and exploration mechanics. Whether you’re playing by yourself or with a group of people, you’re bound to enjoy the hectic and fast-paced scenarios that Lovers has to offer. Just know that there’s definitely more fun to be had with a group than playing solo.

    Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is another enjoyable and unique experience added for the Switch's already swollen library. It's a little short, with only four campaigns, but it's a great title to whip out with friends - sitting around the console, or on the big screen, yelling out orders to each other. Good old, couch co-op fun. Being a Super Rare Games production, this also comes with a few special little extras; the usual trading cards, and stickers. It's a nice little extra on top of the opportunity to get a physical copy of a usually digital only product.

I've had such a blast playing with so many different people. Beaten it 10+ times now, and It never gets old. I love the chaos during multiplayer. It's a total blast with everyone shouting orders and shouts of excitement. The art style is amazing and the music fits right in with the levels. This is my favorite co-op game on the switch and if you have 4 joycons and friends to play with, this is totally worth your $15. Expand

I have only played it two player, I'm sure it's even better with four. It scratches so many game itches I didn't even know I had, and if you have a significant other, this is the perfect game to play with them.

    The real standout point is that while the game is very hectic, arguing is much less prevalent than in other games like overcooked (which is also great). Also, it really makes you feel like your piloting a giant deathstar around.

    A perfect fit on the switch and may be the best co-op experience on it. I think more switch owners need to check this game out. Gameplay,A perfect fit on the switch and may be the best co-op experience on it. I think more switch owners need to check this game out. Gameplay, music, are great. The only downside I can think of is the game length. Enabling co-op mode is a bit tricky since you have to input some button commands to start it. Expand

    While great in multiplayer, there is no fun in the single player mode.

    Working with the computer is not intuitive at all.
