Just like with the recent Resident Evil remakes, Capcom nails it once again, and Sir Arthur gets the treatment he deserves after 35 years of service. This is as difficult as the player wants it to be, and so newcomers are welcome, and should not miss this gem of an action platformer.

7.6 / 10.0 - Cyber Shadow
Feb 11, 2021

Cyber Shadow is not only a great homage to times gone, but also a quite enjoyable game in itself. What lacks in originality it compensated by great controls and a spot-on level design.

7.1 / 10.0 - Turrican Flashback
Feb 8, 2021

It's a pity that the Turrican Flahsback collection doesn't include any extra at all and Super Turrican 2, arguably one of the better games of the bunch. The price point is also too high, but the games included are great.

7.9 / 10.0 - Ys IX: Monstrum Nox
Jan 29, 2021

Ys IX is probably a step back if directly compared to Lacrimosa of Dana, due to the uneven balance between action and story, but it's still a very solid JRPG, graced by a fast paced combat system.

Atelier Ryza 2 is satisfied to offer more of the same gameplay from the first title, with marginal improvements over the game published last year. It's still a good JRPG but, unlike its predecessor, plays it a little too safe.

Morbid is a nice first attempt at the genre by the people at Still Running and a good alternative for who is starving for a new soulslike game, but it can be improved in many areas and it's consistently lacking in originality.

The third and final expansion for this year is a good one, and brings a new reward system,a newe keyword and some interesting new decks to the table.

This is another impossible port from the folks at Panic Button, and one of the best of all at that. Doom Eternal is simply the best shooter available for Nintendo Switch and a manual on how to shrink down one of the most intensive game of the year on a handheld console.

Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon and The Blade of Light it's a hard pill to swallow for all the recent fans, as its gameplay and graphics haven't aged that well. But it's also a great return to the past for old time fans, and for just five bucks.

Champions of Vestroia is a dull and uninspired title that doesn't make justice to neither the talent of Wayforward nor the original franchise. It's best to avoid it, for now at least.
