The foundations of Breakpoint are sound, and hopefully with a little love and a lot of patches, this could become a fantastic shooter.

Everyone can agree that it is a remake done right from the charming graphics and great music, and there couldn’t have been a better choice of Zelda game to bring to the Switch.

Astral Chain balances smart yet exciting combat and rewarding mechanics with slower, more thoughtful investigation elements and fun exploration.

Youngblood just cannot hope to fill the power armour clad boots of New Colossus. It's a good shooter and great co-op game but don’t expect much more than a run and gun.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 feels like a cross between Animal Crossing, Minecraft and Breath of the Wild but is unique. With its relaxed pace and overall good plot and satisfying gameplay, it’s an enjoyable game and solid RPG that improves upon its predecessor like a sequel should. The dialogue is funny and charming, the world is interesting and fun to explore.

Between the story mode, online challenges and tutorials there’s loads to learn and do, but the learning is a really enjoyable and rewarding experience, and you can happily get lost in creating your dream Mario Land.

The combat is solid, the game looks great and Rage 2 has enough polish it shines like brand new minted Ranger armour, but the plot is pretty disappointing and nothing we haven’t really seen before.

The Labo VR kit is fun to build, really fun to play with.

4A has taken so much of what worked well from the previous games and improved upon them. Where possible it also switches up so many established concepts on their head, meaning you're never completely safe. This leads to some memorable, intense experiences with plenty of leeway to play the game your way.

Observer is a love letter to cyberpunk and Blade Runner in particular, but if you look past that it's also a really great game in its own right. We are taken on a graphic and dark journey, in a bleak but believable world, meeting all manner of interesting and isolated characters as Dan searches for his son. Dripping with atmosphere, blood and chrome, this game is a slow, dark deliberate journey through the dark heart of a hellish future and the nightmares within.  Observer is available from the Nintendo e-shop for £26.99
