This is not a traditional game. The main core of the experience is building the kit and experiencing a different way of interacting with simple minigames designed specifically for this product.
The Robot game is a bit pointless, all you do is walking around smashing things. They were bored pretty quickly. There’s also a lot of adjustments you need to make to the setup based on the childs height, otherwise it doesn’t work properly. If more than one child of different height will be using it be prepared to have to make adjustments each time which is rather annoying.
So in the end this provided several hours of enjoyment during the building part, but I can’t see that this will be used often (if at all) going forward. It’s also quite bulky to store. I think I got my money’s worth but given the choice go for the vehicle kit.
Always had the impression of "It's just cardboard" but having now built it with my son and used it I can honestly say its way more than that.
The building process is what makes this... Once you insert the game card into the switch you are presented with instructions on how to build the robot kit. The instructions are so well designed and easy to follow. My son who's 7 was doing most of the work with ease and often completed steps before the instructions would show.
We built this over 2 days, totalling about 3-4 hours and that's 3-4 enjoyable hours.
The game experience is fun, flip the visor down and you get transported into a first-person view while putting the visor up switches back to a 3rd person view and kneeling down, turns you into a robot batmobile style car... Awesome!.
The hand and feet control works great, having the ability to punch and see the robot break down building is very immersive for kids and having to walk provides a good little workout.
The longevity of the gaming experience remains to be seen but so far this is an awesome piece of kit, great idea and definitely worth the money spent! Well done Nintendo for being so creative and doing a brilliant job of bringing this experience together.
If I had paid £30 for this I would be completely satisfied. The launch price not so much purely on the longevity and repetitiveness of the gaming experience.
Anytime this is on offer I suggest you grab it. It won't disappoint!
