Epic to of gone over a mill! I enjoyed it but i'm not about fighting games other than Smash bros, get bored quick... Traded it an got like nearly all my money back 🙂

it gets deeper the longer you play, in the beginning everyone was fighting similar, than you start to see new ways of fighting to attack your opponent, now there are some really good high level players, i had to adjust to every different technique and some I still have trouble with, 115 hours in and I can proudly say the people online are pretty good compare to what I played against in the first 2 weeks

Let's see Arms will have legs

I see the game having strong legs selling a decent amount for a couple of years.

hope so, it get updates for a year like splatoon so I hope the added content give us a really solid game.....from 1 to 10, I give the game a solid 9 for first in a franchise, and Im a fighting game they improve on it from here will tell us how good it can be, for example Street Fighter 4 is probably the best well rounded fighting ever made in my opinion, I love the arcade edition.

Arms need a few more balancing, Helix need to be nerf a little, if you know how to use him, he can be hard to beat with his body stretching

he is one of the best with Helix, I played against him in the tournament in 1st round and he wreck me, I never seen anyone use him that way before

i cant remember what else need a little balancing, I wrote it down the other day, but despite, its still solid game

Not surprising. It was going to be a niche game. Nintendo needs to step it up so far the only good games on the Switch are Wii U games...

ARMS has already sold more than 1 million copies to date, which is great for a new IP on an install base of 4.7 million.

Also, it's got a 77 in Metacritic, so for the critics this game is at least decent. Seeing how it's going to get free content all year (fighters, arms and stages), it will only get better. Just like Driveclub, which was a much better game at the end than it was at launch thanks to all the free content added. Or like the first Splatoon..

Also, Splatoon 2 just released and it's fantastic and it's not a Wii U game.
