    Very probably, but that's a poor effort when other sites regularly manage 'review in progress' type things. To not even have some kind of impressions article up on launch day just seems weak.
    It's difficult to keep up with Nintendo and their prodigious output of new titles.

    I'm always fascinated by how angry some people get when Nintendo games get good reviews. There's some salty tears in those comments.

    I've just sent a screen grab of the metacritic score to a mate of mine for that very purpose!

    I suppose as the Grande Dame of gaming they're always easy to bash especially as its all "KIDS GAMES"

    I only used to get one or two games a year when I was a kid so I suppose that's accurate.

    Nintendo removed easy access to a For Glory like mode from the game, so I removed the game from my house. The store was surprisingly lenient, even giving me my money back in cash instead of store credit because he could taste my disappointment.

    Sadly, I was dumb enough to buy a fighter pass before even trying the online. One hundred percent my mistake. However, Nintendo can still go fuck themselves.

    I hate to say it but this is the worst game I've ever played online.

    But it's an ESSENTIAL! That would mean that Eurogamer has overlooked the fact that a game is fundamentally broken because it has the Nintendo logo on it?!

    I know plenty of people with the game who have no issues online. Go figure.

    Only played a few matches online but didn't experience any lag whatsoever. Silky smooth *shrug*

    Ya, 5ghz. Played a friend who has one bar as his router is so far away from his consoles and it very laggy at times.

    General online seems fine though

    "Reddit user GodYoshi stated: "Boycott Nintendo till they fix this. Not given them a penny for DLCs. I'll play they game as is until I get bored. After that I'll give up on Nintendo and use either a REAL console or finally make the jump to PC.""

    I love responses like this.

    Anyway. Does the online work properly? The Wii U version was pretty flakey.

    Can anyone tell me what Nintendo can do about people playing smash online in handheld mode a mile from the router?

    Properly filtering games by connection quality is literally line one in the 'how not to have a shit online experience' handbook.

    But, yes, from that point on there's nothing they can do to stop them wandering to the toilet, as is the primary instinct of the switch user.

    Wasnít there an option in SF4 on Xbox where you could choose to only play people with a certain connection standard or have I imagined that?

    And I never thought about this. Fair point. Must be possible to calculate a personís average connection speed though? If they keep fucking off it affects their average and they get bumped down with the others.
