    Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun is, in all honestly, a near-perfect rhythm game. Every piece of the puzzle that makes up this game is meticulously chosen to create a wonderful experience for newbies and pros alike. Beginners will be instantly engaged by the simple two-button gameplay, while advanced players will be able to test their strength on the insane speed of higher difficulty tracks. No matter which side you fall on, there’s enough content here to keep you engaged for a long time.

    The best rhythm game on Nintendo Switch, and one with a surprisingly fun party mode.

    Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'N' Fun is aimed at a specific audience, those that feel comfortable smashing away to J-pop and flailing their arms. And it caters to that audience perfectly. With more than 70 songs and dozens of minigames, it's going to keep players tapping and drumming along for hours, and likely humming the songs for hours after playing too.

    It remains an addictive chapter just like its predecessors, a vortex of sounds and colors from which to be overwhelmed and with which to smile to the rhythm of music.

    The Taiko saga comes to Nintendo Switch with a wide catalog of musical themes, consistent gameplay and mini games for more than one player. Unfortunately the delay when displaying the notes on the screen makes the product look bad.

    With added partygames Taiko no Tatsujin on Switch is significantly better than its PS4-sibling. Nonetheless the poor JoyCon controls stick out.

    The best music game on switch? Good Taiko mode and fun party mode. But no online mode.
    DLCs can be a lot! Need to have a season pass.

    Great rythm game, awesome music and a lot of party games (i didn't expect this, but they're really fun).
