The only slight downfall to the game is the slightly repetitive nature of the gameplay but the overall enjoyment factor far outweighs this (especially with the unpredictable nature of the game like Space Outlaws) and at the end of your gaming day, you can walk away with a big smile on your face and then you can take it to a whole new level with all the modular toys available as toy truly meets game.

4.1 / 5.0 - WarioWare Gold
Aug 6, 2018

If you're looking for some short bursts of fun then WarioWare Gold successfully ticks this brief on the Nintendo 3DS. It's also one of those games that really draws you, however if you play it too much, you literally overeat so finding that perfect balance of play time is needed. With that said, the 3DS version doesn't really add that much to the franchise but the unique control mechanics and games does make for an enjoyable time, even though some of the mini-games fail. So although WarioWare Gold doesn't get a gold medal on this occasion, it still deserves a solid bronze as it's a great homage to Nintendo.

If you're looking for a well-made first person shooter with plenty of action and soul, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus ticks all the right boxes on the Nintendo Switch as developers Panic Button have successfully ported this game onto a far less powerful console that works like a treat, even with the slight graphical hit!

Kirby Star Allies is Nintendo at its best as HAL Laboratories create a truly enjoyable side-scrolling platformer which takes a classic gaming premise and transforms it into something enjoyable for old and new gamers alike that takes the genre to a new level. The controls work extremely well on this console and although single-player works well, Kirby Star Allies is far more entertaining with other players.

It feels like a bad 70's action movie and the story, characters and quirkiness of the gameplay is pure ingenious. Even after all these years, Bayonetta 2 on the Nintendo 2 is still a very fun experience with a great gaming engine, exceptional graphics and a female protagonist that will make you laugh and also give you a healthy dose of controller rage.

4.65 / 5.0 - Bayonetta 2
Feb 15, 2018

Even after all these years, Bayonetta 2 on the Nintendo 2 is still a very fun experience with a great gaming engine, exceptional graphics and a female protagonist that will make you laugh and also give you a healthy dose of controller rage. [James Wright separately reviewed the Wii-U (5 / 5) and Switch (4.3 / 5) versions. Their scores have been averaged.]

Disneyland Adventures is not the best Xbox One X game out there and although it successfully channels Disney, the gameplay is quite basic and does border on boring at times, even for younger players. Nonetheless, the exploration is fun but just be warned that things get very repetitive very early on.

Rush: A Disney-Pixar Adventure on Xbox One X is a title for younger players, however the overall replay value is lacking and doesn't really do much to enhance the experience on the Xbox One X. Compared to the Kinect version, it's superior but in the grand scheme of things, it's unfortunately just another port to a more powerful console.

Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection may be just another sim at its core, however the developers give the player some good gaming mechanics and spectacular 4K graphics. The control system is a little so-so but overall it still works well on this new console. So if you're looking for your next sim fix, Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection ticks the right boxes.

Super Lucky's Tale is the first platformer on the Xbox One X that gives players an honest arcade experience with a fun protagonist, decent mechanics and truly impressive 4K graphics.

4.4 / 5.0 - Gran Turismo Sport
Oct 26, 2017

In conclusion, Gran Turismo Sport is one of the best GT experiences on any Playstation console, however it does have limited content compared to its competitors such as Project Cars and Forza on the Xbox One. Graphically, it's a thoroughly impressive game, especially with 4K HDR and then you have the option of VR which gives you a very immersive experience but more would have been nice, especially more content for offline. Needless to say, the developers have pushed for online which may  turn some players away but if you're looking for a total online experience, GT Sport definitely delivers on that scale and offers a very simulated racing game from start to finish… just be warned that you need to put in the hours.

Pokken Tournament is a very entertaining game on the Nintendo Switch that successfully gives players an almost Tekken-light experience on this console that is more fun than controller rage. Furthermore, there's quite a bit of depth hidden in this game and hours upon hours of replay value to keep you engaged as you fight the various Pokémon.

One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition is a decent addition to the stable of Nintendo Switch games and of course from a Once Piece perspective. It's a fun experience on the Nintendo Switch with lots of quests to embark on and is a relatively sturdy gaming system. The multiplayer component of the game could have been fleshed out more but nonetheless, it creates a fun game for fans of the One Piece series.

Sure, this is not a new game but Rayman Legends is a truly fun game on the Nintendo Switch that is definitely a must have title if you love arcade games, particularly of this calibre. Lastly, the level design is brilliant and the developers successfully take a 2D game and turn it into something very special on this new portable console that not only pays homage to the platformers of yesteryear but creates a very compelling modern game for the 21st century.

StarCraft Remastered is a true test of time and although the original still works well today, the remastered version is a fun experience. Sure, it's a little clunky here and there but Blizzard have really brought the game into the 21st century, especially with its revamped graphics that look glorious, not to mention multiplayer updates. All in all, it's a fun trip down memory lane that just highlights the memories again and for those who have never played it before, it will allow them to experience what all the Terran, Zerg and Protoss fuss was all about.

This edutainment experience goes for a whopping 18-minutes and gives the viewer just enough information to keep you entertained as you explore these underwater wrecks. It's really quite fascinating that is made even more enjoyable thanks to the VR experience.

What makes David Attenborough's First Life VR so interesting is the content behind the visuals which is like a virtual reality edutainment experience and even though it's only 15-mintues long, it's definitely a title that can be revisited time and time again.
