In conclusion, Moonlighter is a spectacular compromise between procedural roguelike elements and progression mechanics, leading to a wonderful mix which is satisfying on so many levels. It’s a great chance to indulge your inner looter whilst also giving the opportunity to puzzle out prices, and it’s perfectly at home on the Switch. It’s also proof that having a distinct length and a definite end-point isn’t always a bad thing. Yes, you won’t get hundreds of hours from this, but it’s high-quality and I love it.
All in all, Football Manager Touch is a game of two halves. In the first 45 minutes, you have a wonderfully complex game made from years of development and evolution. In the second, you have a painfully underbaked port missing many of the most interesting features of recent entries, and that’s a big disappointment.
In conclusion, Masters of Anima is an excellent experience which mixes Diablo and Pikmin excellently. I wonder why so few developers have attempted this before, as it’s so incredibly fun to play. A world full of charm, a bumbling, comedic protagonist and incredibly fun and interesting mechanics make this a must-try for Pikmin or RTS fans looking for a new style to try.
The Longest Five Minutes is an extremely interesting experience which mixes an engaging story with classic gameplay; even if it does lose a little player engagement due to this. The characters are deep and engaging, with rewarding relationships between them to be explored. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it and have decided to score it accordingly, but I simply cannot recommend buying it from the UK Nintendo Eshop at this time due to the overpricing in comparison to other versions.
Overall Urban Trials: Playground is an excellent addition to the Switch’s library, providing a different style of gameplay. It functionally emulates the feeling of it’s forbearers, and whilst there are many areas for improvement I can’t deny I had a blast taking this on the move.
Overall, Nightmare Boy is a lot of fun, despite it’s many flaws. It’s not the best Metroidvania on Switch in terms of gameplay by a long shot, but the sense of style it embodies is enough to carry it, and the overall experience does improve the more you play.
Overall, LMSH2 is a Marvel fan’s dream. With a huge amount of characters and content from the majority of Marvel’s past and present catalogue there is heaps of fan service in store. Whilst the omission of certain characters and the lacklustre combat disappoints, the puzzling and sheer quantity of quality content makes up for these hiccups.
It’s inconsistent, varying wildly from 9/10 moments to 3/10 moments, and it’s frustrating to see. If you love Sonic games, want an entertaining story and a ton of fan-service and can see through a few mis-steps, pick this up. Otherwise, you may be somewhat disappointed
All in all though, Total War: Warhammer 2 is a solid continuation on the foundations set by it’s predecessor. I don’t feel it’s enough of a technical improvement to justify the numerical release, as many of the quality of life advances could, and perhaps should have been released as a patch for the original, but it is a solid improvement on the formula none-the-less.
