Assassin’s Creed III on Switch is easily the weakest 'Remastered' version of the game that’s been released thus far.

There's no escaping the fact that Strike Suit Zero is a let-down, despite the promise of this enhanced edition. The Director's Cut has fixed issues with checkpointing and, in terms of content, is certainly a generous package on Switch, but the game never escapes the fact that its central conceit isn't satisfactorily delivered upon. With better mech controls and some more time and care put into delivering more varied missions this could have been a great little space combat game, but as it stands it's hard to recommend to anyone other than diehard space jockeys.

8 / 10 - Aggelos
May 7, 2019

Overall, this is a great little retro adventure that doesn't outstay its welcome. It plays like a top tier title from back in the day, presents you with the sort of gameplay you want and expect from this type of game and serves it all up at a pace with such consistent quality that it's hard not to be won over, no matter how fatigued you may be by the idea of another blast of old school pixel action.

7 / 10.0 - Hyper Sentinel
May 8, 2018

A pretty straightforward modernising of a fondly remembered 1980s shoot 'em up that successfully adds a handful of modern bells, whistles and gameplay wrinkles to proceedings whilst also suffering somewhat from the inherent gameplay restrictions of its source material.

5 / 10.0 - Windlands (VR)
Dec 14, 2016

Windlands is a pretty great idea that could have been an essential PSVR title had more thought been put into its traversal.

The new mode is unnecessary and strips away the very elements of gameplay that make Super Stardust so good in the first place.

3 / 10.0 - Carnival Games VR
Dec 6, 2016

Carnival games falls so short of achieving anything good that it’s genuinely hard to think of a reason for anyone to buy it.

It feels like such an almighty shame that a game this beautiful, with such a compelling premise, should be let down by a failure to include anything approaching interesting gameplay.

7.5 / 10.0 - Driveclub VR
Nov 16, 2016

If you’re willing to overlook some blurry visuals and get down to the serious business of racing you’ll find that there’s still a lot to love here and, for a launch title, it’s an impressive first outing for racing games on PSVR.

3 / 10.0 - Weeping Doll
Nov 16, 2016

This is a lazy cash in, a shoddy waste of your time with nothing to recommend beyond the fact it’s one of the cheapest games in the PSVR catalogue thus far.

8.5 / 10.0 - Headmaster (VR)
Nov 8, 2016

Headmaster is an easy-to-recommend, addictive and fun little game that is a worthy addition to any PSVR library.

7 / 10.0 - EVE: Valkyrie (VR)
Nov 3, 2016

At its heart Valkyrie is a straightforward, arcade shooter which lacks enough variety in its gameplay to stop it growing stale quite quickly, and, for the asking price, it’s perhaps only fully recommendable to the most enthusiastic of space pirates.

A brilliantly simple, fiendishly addictive puzzler and another of the standout games so far on PSVR.

8 / 10.0 - Battlezone (VR)
Oct 26, 2016

Battlezone is a tough, fun and addictive tank warfare game in its own right that throws down a gauntlet to teams of players and challenges them to really work together to succeed.

6 / 10.0 - Here They Lie (VR)
Oct 20, 2016

Horror elements are overcooked and, alongside seriously limited interactions, lead to a game that’s not half as frightening as it thinks it is.

The here and now of Asemblance leaves you with more questions than answers, and not in the way Nilo intended.

8 / 10.0 - PAC-MAN 256
Jun 24, 2016

Takes the classic addictive gameplay we all know and love and successfully mixes it with the endless runner genre to create a surprisingly good and extremely affordable little gem.

9 / 10.0 - Doom
May 18, 2016

It may not be genre-defining like its progenitor but it's easily the best shooter on the current crop of consoles and one of the finest first person shooters of recent years.

Double Fine has done another great on remastering a classic, delicately updating it in such a way that what stood out in 1993 stands out all over again more than 20 years later.
