Super Dodgeball Beats is simple to grasp, challenging at times in uneven ways, but generally fun with a visual flair that is humorous and bombastic in a delightful way. While I’d have hoped for some different ways to apply challenge, it doesn’t become insurmountable and the narrow scope of options lets you focus on jumping right into a match. Even with some repetition in the soundtrack, this is another solid rhythm-based game on the Switch that you can put some headphones on and get tunnel vision enjoying it.
Perhaps the biggest crime though is that the music isn’t exciting enough. Sure, it’s funky and distinctly cheerful, but it’s just not characterful enough, and later on I still found myself relying on the visual cues for the beats rather than the aural ones. The game’s presentation at least is fantastic, with bright, manga-styled visuals and cool-looking characters, but it’s let down by the less-than-inspiring action.
It's not really about dodgeball, and it certainly isn't super. And the beats are obscured and hard to hit most of the time. Don't let the title deceive you.
