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.

The amount and variety and questions is quite good and the way the game is structured makes for a good multiplayer time, which is fundamental to truly enjoy this game when faced with the arbitrary and unappealing one-player mode.

7 / 10 - Road Redemption
Nov 28, 2018

Road Redemption is not the average racing game - by combining racing and action with a few RPG elements when it comes to progression, Road Redemption got its formula right when it comes to gameplay, aided by a very healthy lifespan that will keep players around it for a good amount of time.

Wasteland 2: Director's Cut brings this well known name to a Nintendo system for the first time in an effort that features an interesting and varied plot, as well as a good combat system and a long lifespan. Despite its rather outdated visual environment, Wasteland 2 on the Nintendo Switch is more than certain to appeal to a great number of players, some of whom will be put in contact with the series for the very first time.

Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! bring a new approach to the Pokémon series that makes these twin games more accessible to a broader audience, as well as a series of new and welcome features to the gameplay, including an interesting cooperative mode. All aspirations are not satisfied, however, as online gameplay is too limited, the motion controls included lose interest fast and the challenge is overall below that of other Pokémon games, but that does not mean these are not two well-executed works that will certainly bring some hours of fun and involvement to players new and old.

5 / 10 - Swap This!
Nov 10, 2018

Swap This! brings a puzzle game to the Nintendo Switch that does a good job at keeping players amused for short gaming sessions, especially when using the system's touch screen. The game loses appeal when played on a television screen, however, and it can feel too repetitive on a short-term basis.

6 / 10 - Soulblight
Nov 2, 2018

Soulblight brings some interesting action RPG elements to a roguelike game and its idea of replacing the usual experience points with personality traits is worthy of praise, as is its injuries system. Where Soulblight fares less well is on its rather frustratingly difficult combats and a somewhat repetitive nature on the short term, which adding to its unambitious art style leave the feeling that thie game could have gone further.

LEGO DC Super-Villains is a much welcome return of the series to a Nintendo console. If the main traits of the Lego games remain intact, it's also worthy of praise to see that the game brings along some necessary improvements when it comes to the audiovisual component and which suit perfectly on the game's well written and humorous plot, as well as on its variety of available characters.

The Nintendo Switch has the privilege of having the first home console version of The World Ends With You, bringing its already known level of quality, art style, soundtrack and fluid gameplay to a more contemporary audience. Despite its upgrade, the game still plays better on handheld mode, as issues with the control make it less fluid and less practical on a television screen. Nevertheless, this new version has enough elements to stand on its own and both fans of the original game and newcomers are strongly advised to dedicate some time to this marvel of a game.

Surgeon Simulator CPR can be mistaken for a...simulator, of the serious kind, but that's not its purpose. Full of humour and not taking itself too seriously, Surgeon Simulator CPR will put the players at the centre of an operating room and its motion controls certainly require some learning before they can be fully assimilated.

6 / 10 - Pool Panic
Oct 11, 2018

Pool Panic does not take itself too seriously and that' just fine, as it does not intend to be an accurate pool game by any measure. While the challenges are indeed original and fun, the game also features too many reused elements, making it feel repetitive too quickly, and the level design on some sections ends up compromising the experience. A fun effort, nonetheless, especially on multiplayer.
