Audio & Visual
The game provides a charming soundtrack of music throughout the gameplay. Character audio mostly consists of small sound effects and exclamations that sound a bit fuzzy or archaic.
Visuals are relatively clean and smooth for Nintendo Switch standards but are slightly antiquated from afar. The game is relatively colourful in all aspects and provides a basic but feasible feel for the gameplay.
Gameplay & Replayability
This game is a tycoon simulator, so it involves managerial tasks and opulent customisation, likewise to the Sims series. The tasks required for completion can be quite a handful, but the rewards earned can enable more tools and accessories for your U-Tubing career. However, the gameplay can be repetitive at times, but progression can switch up the environment, enabling new scenarios and paths to take.
There are quantities of rewards to grind to progress to a more successful status, but at times, it doesn’t feel as rewarding, due to the repetitive algorithms. A typical gamer would return to this game regularly, but if the grind takes too long, the gamer will most likely lose interest.
In conclusion, this game is rather lacklustre. Of course, it can be seen as slightly superior to mobile iterations, but overall many would perceive the game as adequate on the Nintendo Switch. However, if you are a fan of the Sims and tycoon games, this is undoubtedly a great pick. The game requires a lot of work but can be rewarded with substantial rewards to achieve maximum customisation and simulate a Youtubers life to satisfactory results and even help pursue the behind the scene struggles and technical mishaps.
This game is of tolerable quality in both visuals and audio, and customisation is one of the most dominant features. The life simulation and wide array of missions can genuinely show the ins and outs of the world of superstardom. However, replayability would be kept to a minimum if not for the increasing amount of rewards and change in environments.
