    A fun music game, which also includes lots of multiplayer minigames (versus and coop), but sadly the basic edition doesn´t include the taiko accessory, and motion sensing with joy-con doesn´t work so well.

    While the various non-drum-controller control schemes aren't always optimal, the Switch version offers many nice options to pick from--and if you just want to play a couple of standard-difficulty songs with pals before competing in four-player noodle-slurping, motion controls prove to be plenty enjoyable. But if you've been longing for a quirky, enjoyable multiplayer music game, either version should scratch the itch quite nicely.

    Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum'n'Fun is a fine rhythm game, graced by a rich tracklist but held back by a lack of game modes and inconsistent motion controls.

    Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! gives Europeans a long-awaited taste of Japanese drum-fun. You’ll want to consider forking out for the taiko peripheral to see the game at its best, but Switch’s touchscreen makes this an easier recommendation than it would otherwise be. The motion controls should be avoided with extreme prejudice – they’re simply unworkable – and a few odd design decisions, not to mention an excess of loading screens, take the shine off what is a beautifully bold and bouncy game. Fortunately, the Party Game section helps shore things up, offering short bursts of multiplayer fun as a credible stopgap until Rhythm Paradise arrives.

    With added partygames Taiko no Tatsujin on Switch is significantly better than its PS4-sibling. Nonetheless the poor JoyCon controls stick out.

    Great rythm game, awesome music and a lot of party games (i didn't expect this, but they're really fun).

    The best music game on switch? Good Taiko mode and fun party mode. But no online mode.
    DLCs can be a lot! Need to have a season pass.
