i remember when this game first was announced i didnt care about it at all but i realized i owned like 3 games on switch and this was the next big release so i got it and actually found it to be pretty fun, and i will say the game's overall style and character designs are pretty solid overall. then i played this games ranked mode and stopped having fun. this isnt on some scrubquotes shit but at a point you pretty much had to play on stick or else you were just throwing. the cool gimmick of playing with two joycons was essentially a debuff. i think from the point onward playing the game with stick, the level of fun just depreciated and i stopped liking the game because the arms shit got too serious and it was never meant to be played that way and it just made the game boring. not even the conemt updates with new chatacters could bring me back. also i remember single player content just being arcade mode stories for each character and after that was done all you had was playing online. i cant remember if there was actually more to it than that but thats just how i remember it since i ended up trading this game with a friend for his copy of wonderful 101 in like 2018. i still havent even played wonderful 101 yet but i feel like i made a good trade

min min is cool but wasted potential

ASMR ARMS is that game everybody forgot of. Lacks content after like 5 hours max. Would've loved a more "Mario Kart-y" approach and a mode like Swordplay Showdown from Wii Sports Resort.
At this point it's basically just Wii Sports boxing but at a weird distance and with annoying dodging.

party mode went hard as shit actually
having an option to unlock all customization for tournament setups is so fuckin smart, Sakurai?

this was fun, but could never justify buying it
