Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is going to be a must-play title for a certain type of Switch owner. It's a successor to the quietly awesome DS collection with shades of Wii Sports and Wii Play.
Coming in skeptical of Clubhouse Games' longevity more than its bang-for-your-buck value, I wasn't sure I fit the bill, but after a few weeks with this Nintendo-produced compilation, I'm convinced.
It's not just the game selection, which is wide-ranging enough to reach beyond the usual board and card games with activities like darts, bowling, golf, and tank battles. It's not just the fact that I can play alone against multiple AI levels, or locally, or online, although that is a huge part of the appeal. It's the little details, too – the narrated game introductions, the super-chill soundtrack, and the glossy presentation.
You can tell Nintendo sunk serious time into this project as soon as you poke around the menus.
