7.3 / 10.0 - Eagle Flight
Nov 22, 2016

Despite being a competent VR title (mainly thanks to its interesting controls) and a fascinatingly weird flying simulator, Eagly Flight ultimately lacks a bit of depth and structure. Which is honestly a pity, considering how entertaining is to actually fly around a wasted Paris reclaimed by Mother Nature.

7.8 / 10.0 - Snipperclips
Mar 7, 2017

A fun and clever multiplayer experience that would have been perfect if bundled with the console itself. It might lack that special spark of genius that could have turned Snipperclips into a cult classic, but it's still a fascinating and appealing way to show off your brand new Switch to anyone (gamer or not).

8.3 / 10.0 - Snake Pass
Apr 3, 2017

Snake Pass is currently my personal surprise of 2017: a platformer-that's-not-really-a-platformer with strong puzzle elements and a pretty irresistible approach, built with passion and wit around an unconventional concept. It's also a bizarre and surprisingly hardcore experiment overall, one that will make some players fall in love while irritating others: it won't please everyone, but its desire for something original is certainly commendable.

8.3 / 10.0 - Little Nightmares
Apr 21, 2017

A twisted fairy tale that dwells in the grotesque and in the macabre, Little Nightmares is a narrative platformer that you will eventually remember for its fascinating atmosphere (and its remarkable graphics and audio design) rather than for its gameplay.

8 / 10.0 - Puyo Puyo Tetris
Apr 24, 2017

Puyo Puyo Tetris is the not so trival encounter between two iconic puzzle game legends: a crossover full of options and possibilities that works well played alone, but becomes an absolute blast when played with friends (and therefore a perfect match for Nintendo Switch).

7.5 / 10.0 - Flinthook
May 2, 2017

Colorful, cheerful and fun, Flinthook is not only a joy to look at, but above all also a blast to play. Too bad for its uncompromising difficulty and its poor balancing, that prevent this roguelike-platformer from becoming the next cult classic on the indie scene.

8.7 / 10.0 - Farpoint
May 18, 2017

Farpoint is the perfect crossover between arcade light gun shooters à la The House of the Dead and old-school First Person Shooters. The result is a jaw-dropping experience that truly becomes unparalleled thanks to the power of VR and to the quality of the Aim Controller peripheral: this might be the first full blown traditional game 100% built around VR, and despite a few shortcomings you literally won't believe your eyes. In its own ways, Farpoint truly takes the shooter genre to a whole new level: if this is not a killer application, we're pretty close to that.

8.8 / 10.0 - RiME
May 25, 2017

A touching adventure that will be remembered for its stellar emotional value rather than for its (fairly good) gameplay: prepare some tissues because you're definitely gonna need them, as you'll experience one of the most memorable epilogues ever.

8.9 / 10.0 - Arms
Jun 6, 2017

Behind its wacky (and absolutely adorable) cartoony appearance, with its peculiar colorful appeal, its delightful cast of characters and its rubbery animations that somehow remind you of Splatoon, ARMS has the heart - and the brain - of a pure-bread fighting game. Deep, engaging, fascinating, fast and far from trivial, this beat'em up shows however one huge merit above its many undeniable virtues: it's a new, completely unique take on the genre, one that will be enjoyable for both fans and newcomers. Another hit for the Big N, scored with a surprising boomerang-punch.

8.2 / 10.0 - GoNNER
Jul 12, 2017

If you're looking for an honest - yet brutal - challenge and you're not afraid of getting lost in a quirky and abstract dimension, dive in and join the water drop Ikk in his procedural adventure: monsters, sweat, lots of swear words and many satisfactions will be waiting for you in this fierce platformer/shooter hybrid with a roguelike structure (one that actually works really well with the Nintendo Switch philosophy).
