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.

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.
