  • #Splatoon 2 ARMS is a sport, right?
  • #Splatoon 2 ARMS is fun, I mostly play Misango. Way cooler gimmick than Min Min.
  • #Splatoon 2 My hyper little brother is to blame for getting me back into ARMS
  • #Splatoon 2 neither have I. I've been playing ARMS and Age of Calamity
  • #General Oh yeah it’s way more fun then Fortnite I really like the mechanics more like the two arms the classes it’s really fun but I need to get better lol
  • #Super Smash Bros. Ultimate I have the 5 from the First pack, since I bought it as a whole thing before knowing who any of them were. That being said, the pack has proven worth it, in my opinion, since i got a lot of variety out of it. ---- Haven't decided if I am going to get Min Min, since I am not really into ARMS.
  • #General they tried too much to make an arms character that she doesnt feel like a smash character that much
  • #Super Smash Bros. Ultimate they tried too hard to make an "arms" character that they didnt make a character appropriate for smash
  • #Other Nintendo Switch Games Any arms lovers here?
  • Jump Rope Challenge Review - Free Rabbit Jump Rope Game on Switch Jump rope challenge is a new free game from Nintendo which uses a pair of joy cons where you jump virtual jump rope. You hold the joy cons pretty much like you would jump rope handles and swing them around exactly like normal jumping rope. There's a jumping rabbit on the screen which shows your progress and the initial aim is to do a hundred jump ropes a day although you can increase this goal later on. It's a simple exercise game. I jump rope.
  • #Super Smash Bros. Ultimate kirb can duck under the arms always but not the blast
  • #General Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day: Rock Band is fighter pass 5
  • #General Yeahhhh arms was a bit of a bummer to me
  • #General if Arms ended up being your favorite game, maybe
  • #General 500 bucks for a switch, pro controller, arms and an extra charger

Is ARMS worth it?

729 users have added this game. Usually if a player adds a title to their games list, they likely had a positive experience with it. When we combine the total number of players who own this title with some other behind the scenes factors, this game definitely seems to be worth it. We recommend picking it up. That being said, at $59.99, this game isn't exactly cheap and we can understand if you would like to do some more research before purchasing.

Worth it!
