Mitch Jay's Reviews

I’ve been gaming since a very young age and although I can’t remember my very first game, I fondly remember enjoying Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and being giddy with joy once I beat Dr. Robotnik. My all-time favourite game is a tie between Persona 4 Golden and Final Fantasy IX. As you may have noticed, I have a love for JRPG’s although I dabble in all genres. My favourite genres are fighters, visual novels and, of course, JRPG’s. I currently work with Rice Digital, NEO Magazine, Manga UK, Anime Limited, PCGamesN, PlayStation LifeStyle, J-Novel Club and Japan Curiosity. I was previously an Editor at PS4 Attitude.

It delivers on what it promises.

I appreciate Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker for not rehashing the Ultimate Ninja Storm formula, and for branching out into something different. It might not be as good a fighting game as its predecessors, but it's a great team-based game that'll delight Naruto fans, and will be a great learning experience when creating Naruto games going forward.

If you're a big Senran Kagura fan then you'll likely enjoy this, and at £8.99 it isn't too pricey. It seems like all DLC characters will be a similar price though and if they're anything like this one, then you're getting a shockingly tiny amount of repetitive content for your money. I recommend skipping this one, although the Joy-con HD rumble features are pretty great.

You might worry that this is too much Yakuza, but there's no such thing.

Touhou: Genso Wanderer Reloaded is a solid game, but one with such lengthy conversations that you can't help but become tired of them. Dungeons are fun, but the repetition aspect can also become tiring, and if you've played the original version, then it's only worth picking up Reloaded if you really enjoyed the experience. There are new characters, scenarios and previously released DLC included, so there's plenty of new content to see here. It's the best Touhou game I've played, but it's difficult to recommend at its current price. It's worth a shot when it's cheaper, though.

Code of Princess EX doesn't justify its full price with its lack of new content, and its lack of previously included English dub, and it hasn't aged particularly well. It's a serviceable game that doesn't excel in any area, and there's not much to check out if you've played it before. otherwise it's worth picking up once it goes on sale if you're fancying a button-masher – this is made out to be an easier choice considering there's no physical version in Europe, so there's very little rush to secure a copy of this niche game.

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido hasn't released to amazing sales in Japan and it's a shame because it's such an entertaining game. It might seem like a hard swallow at full price and at first glance, but there's an incredible amount of depth and content that you won't regret the buy. I'll be returning to Sushi Striker again because I love its creative wonder, and I think you will too. Try the demo out, at the very least.

The Lost Child may be linked to El Shaddai, but you don't need to know a thing about it to enjoy it. It features a standalone story and cast but those who don't enjoy the genre won't enjoy this. I wish there was more to investigating and that so many assets weren't being reused so often, but The Lost Child is a solid first-person dungeon-crawler with an addicting capture mechanic and an engaging enough story to keep you wondering how it'll end.

Regardless, I'm glad I played it on Switch rather than another system as the bite-sized missions lend themselves well to portability, but there's little reason to go back after completing both routes.

Pirate Warriors 3 is further proof that Musou games are a perfect fit for Switch.

Temper your expectations because this experience isn't quite as magical as it could've been.

You do get to whip your mighty calculator out when bribing an enemy or object though, and the concept is so fun that it's a shame that it doesn't stand out as a mechanic after a couple of hours.

If you're an Atelier fan then of course you should buy this.

.hack//G.U. Last Recode is worth your time, especially as you get four games for the price of one with this collection, and each title is a strong effort. It'll keep you occupied, especially during a period where there aren't many new JRPGs out. For everyone's sake though, we can just refer to this collection as Last Recode rather than .hack//G.U. Last Recode, right?

The smooth frame rate doesn't get in the way of the grandeur of your greatest combos.
