My goodness, this is unplayable if you don't have three friends in the room with you (I'm getting too old to ask my buddies to play Nintendo with me). Not because the game is hard, but because you literally have to randomly wait to find a team that isn't complete garbage. Simple task, hitting the ball into rings. Some are colored like your Yoshi and you get bonus points for hitting them. Additionally, the rings rotate between both teammates.
Simple then, right? All you have to do is take turns. When I'm yellow and you're blue and only yellow and green rings are on the court, it's my turn. Go away. Come back when blue rings come up and I'll take a quick nap. Also, try to hit the rings and not do your best to dodge them in a pointless rally.
I played for at least an hour with several teams. Not ONCE did I find a team that used this strategy. Instead, I got a combo of guys that were ball hogs and went after everything, guys that simply couldn't play, and if I was REALLY lucky, someone who wanted to cover only one side of the court and leave the other to me. Well, at least he had an inkling of teamwork. Probably thought I was being a ball hog when I jumped in front of him when it was my turn. But it messed up the angles in any case.
So, we have a challenge that 4 me's probably could have finished on the first try, which was instead an exercise in frustration. And, of course, there's no voice chat, so simply coming up with a strategy is out of the question.
I know Nintendo wanted this free tryout to be an advertisement for the game, but my goodness. There was zero fun there.Last edited by NightlyPoe - on 28 April 2019
