    Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about Mini Metro whatsoever. It’s an incredible blend of gorgeous graphics and addictive gameplay, and if you want a great puzzle on your Switch, you owe it to yourself to pick it up.

    Mini Metro is a really good game for unwinding, even with the more challenging modes and moments of high stress that pop when a poorly placed station suddenly appears. In a way, it’s a sim-without-the-sim, and a management game about managing very little. The UI is crisp and clean, the gameplay satisfying, and while the game doesn’t really do much to motivate you to keep playing aside from going “hey, beat your high score!”, it’s fun enough that you’re going to fire it up to try and make a longer lasting and more efficient metro line anyways.

    Sure, the game is challenging and fun while you're sitting on your couch, but it's the perfect time-killer when you're away from home. The simple rules that lead to a surprising depth of challenge will make it easy to while away the hours on a long flight.

    The Nintendo Switch plays perfectly fine either way, even though Handheld Mode is the way to go. Pointer controls are a fun inclusion though, even though they should've made it easier to find. It is neat that you can play up to four people on the television, but the Mini Metro I like is personal and with me anywhere I go. The developers have done a good job translating the magic to the Nintendo Switch, which was honestly my biggest worry going in.

    Mini Metro is a relaxing and very interesting experience whose port to Nintendo Switch, although it has not been unfortunate and is mostly good, it does have certain errors that may make it a worse version for some players.

    Mini Metro is nothing like real public transport. Millions of people don't have to use it each day, but they might just want to instead.

    Mini Metro’s dynamic gameplay kept me engaged, yet never left me feeling overwhelmed. Whether I was simply looking for twenty minutes of casual puzzling or a burst of hardcore strategy, Mini Metro’s deceptively nuanced gameplay worked on both levels equally well. With some quality of life improvements and a more detailed presentation, Mini Metro could propel itself even higher, but even with these concessions the game is easy to recommend.

Often described as minimal but with plenty to look at, this game has a two-player mode, many cities to create maps for, simple but very effective music that changes as you switch line colour, three challenge modes (normal - where station overcrowding ends the game, endless - which means you can keep extending the tube lines, and extreme - where tubelines are fixed once you build them!), and best scores to beat (200,300,500!) The surprise for us after 30' playing time was the inclusion of interchanges - making the sudden build up of passengers more avoidable. I have no idea what the trailer was trying to convey -- I nearly didn't buy it because of the high level of dancing on the underground -- but we loved it and highly recommend it! Expand
