I thoroughly enjoyed A Plague Tale: Innocence from start to finish and cannot fault this title at all. While the gameplay is fluid that is accompanied by excellent graphics and audio, where A Plague Tale – Innocence shines is with its characters and the way it tells their story. So if you're upset at how Game of Thrones ended and need a story that is told correctly, A Plague Tale – Innocence does that flawlessly.

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.

4 / 5.0 - Bayonetta
Feb 15, 2018

Bayonetta on the Nintendo Switch is a very fun experience on this console and it feels like a bad 70's action movie and the story, characters and quirkiness of the gameplay is pure ingenious.

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.
