Dusty Raging Fist brings back the beloved beat'em up genre to the Nintendo Switch and while it doesn't reinvent the formula, it certainly does a decent job with its visuals, simple combat mechanics and its three-player co-op mode. It could be even better with more emphasis on the fighting techniques and some tweaks to its gameplay when it comes to the leveling up of characters and challenge.

Where this edition for the Nintendo Switch falls short, however, is on its lack of VR features that can be found on other versions of the same game, which make it feel like something is missing. If the most dedicated players will have plenty to look forward, those looking for a simpler experience might find the learning involved too cumbersome.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will not disappoint those within the Power Rangers fan base looking for a fun and simple 2D fighting game and its well implemented online component further adds to that. Where Battle for the Grid falls short, however, is on its visual component, which does not attempt to fully profit from the Nintendo Switch capacities and especially, on its business model, which will impose the need for paid DLC in order to expand the fighters' roster.

7 / 10 - RICO
Apr 18, 2019

RICO is a rather simple and accessible first person shooter which fits the Nintendo Switch nicely for quick gaming sessions and which also boasts a very long lifespan, thanks to its roguelike structure. While occasionally some of its levels do not quite allow the player to solve them, RICO's wealthy and varied content help make this an enjoyable and its multiplayer component, both local and online, only improves the experience.

Bringing the two Evoland games to the Nintendo Switch is an opportunity for both experienced and newly-arrived players to enjoy this sum of RPG elements in an edition that might have some execution issues and a less motivating plot but which nevertheless provides an enjoyable time for all.

Swords & Soldiers is back to a Nintendo console with a fun and competent work that features a simple and entertaining gameplay, a sharp strategic component and a very alluring multiplayer mode. Where Swords and Soldiers falls short is on it lack of online capacities and when played with the Switch controller, it requires some time to get used to.

5 / 10 - Heroes Trial
Mar 23, 2019

Heroes Trials does not hide its references and inspirations, and there's nothing wrong with that. What Heroes Trials does wrong, though, is how to execute those influences and as such, what we end up getting is a rather lacklustre effort where its innovative plot and open world exploration end up being harmed by an overall lack of challenge, an art style which does not dazzle anyone and a level design that does not compare to adventure game classics.

7 / 10 - Rival Megagun
Feb 23, 2019

Rival Megagun may seem like other retro-themed shoot'em ups but its additional gameshow component makes sure to put that reading behind. While unusua,l this additional element works very well as an extra layer following the typical shooting sections and if the game's single player experience feels rather limited, the multiplayer component is very competent and enjoyable. If Rival Megagun's online community starts growing, the game will only gain from it.

7 / 10 - Debris Infinity
Feb 10, 2019

Debris Infinity draws direct inspiration from the most popular 1980s 2D arcade shooters to deliver a fun and intuitive experience, along with an enjoyable multiplayer component, topped by its online leaderboards that get updated in real time. It will take more than this, however, to convince players that want more than a simple high score challenge, but fans of the simple gameplay that Debris Infinity recreates will find plenty of reasons to enjoy this title.

Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition delivers what its title promises: a definitive edition of Dynasty Warriors 8. In an effort that includes a very rich amount of content and a good, interesting, and versatile gameplay, this immense effort also features a long and healthy lifespan, and while it could use some improvements regarding fluidity problems on multiplayer and short term repetitiveness, this is without a doubt one of the best versions of the Dynasty Warriors series.

Nairi: Tower of Shirin contributes to the growing number of point and click games on the Nintendo Switch catalogue and does it with an experience that is very accessible, with an interesting and eye-catching art style, a very involving plot and a fluid control system. Its difficulty level and overall lifespan put this work on the simpler side of the spectrum making this opus more recommended to broader segments of the audience.

Horizon Shift '81 is certain to appeal to enthusiasts of 1980s-style space shooters: everything in this game is a tribute to that style and era, with plenty of hallmarks duly following the genre's conventions. While not very friendly to the beginner crowd, Horizon Shift 81 could only improve if it had a multiplayer component and an online option, as it is it will set to captivate the more niche crowd of arcade-based retro shooters.

4 / 10 - Hover
Dec 31, 2018

Hover could have been something more ambitious, thanks to its concept and interesting art style. Unfortunately its flaws and errors end up making this a repetitive and lacklustre experience, with the game's framerate problems, camera issues and tiresome navigation adding up to Hover's shortcomings.

Yo-Kai Watch Blasters on the 3DS may have taken its time to reach Europe after its original release but that doesn't mean the game does not feature a simple and accessible approach to the series, helped by its good use of the 3DS component. Regardless of that, the game's level of challenge feels very low, which is further harmed by its cumbersome tutorials and uninspired level of its tactical component.

Gear.Club Unlimited 2 has one major point in its favour, thanks to the dearth of racing simulations on the Nintendo Switch which makes this game one of its rare examples. Its origins on mobile devices are showing, though, and they become too big to overlook on a game which should be more advanced than that, especially when Gear.Club Unlimited 2 has a thorough career mode and an enjoyable multiplayer, but its long loading times, subpar audio environment and high price don't help.

7 / 10 - Toki
Dec 9, 2018

Toki is back in a remake of the arcade classic which now lands in the Nintendo Switch and it brings with it a marvelous audiovisual rework that gives it a gorgeous overall presentation. It's also clear that this remake is mostly targeting its original audience, as little else seems to have changed, including a difficulty level that is all but inaccessible for more recent players and a lack of additional gameplay components.

9 / 10 - Bastion
Dec 4, 2018

Bastion on the Nintendo Switch brings back a successful RPG that is full of marvelous details, including a brilliant art style, a very involving narration technique and some very accessible gameplay mechanics. Continuing with the practice of bringing major, successful games to the Nintendo Switch, Bastion is worthy of all the attention it gets.
