The more players, the more stressful the situation. Visually, the game has very clean 3D models of bears that have a simple, cute design. It really is a fantastic pick–up-and-play party game, and while it doesn't aspire to be much more than a simplistic affair, it's fun for what it is.
Butcher is violent, fun, frantic, crazy…etc. It's short, but a good play for the value. There are a good amount of options available, and it's definitely got heart (granted, it's dripping in blood). If you're into the Doom series, or you've played other games like Quake, this game is definitively in that vein.
Picross S is a very solid, safe installment for the series. It captures the spirit and addictive nature of the concept, and it fits in nicely with the pick-up-and-play nature of the Switch. If you're craving a Picross experience on the Switch, or if you haven't tried the game before, this take on the series is a fantastic way to join in.
The music is pretty and the worlds are fun to explore for awhile. I think that it's a little short if you're not planning to collect everything, so if you want a quick 3D game to explore, give it a try. Don't expect it to be a package that delivers though.
If you can put up with the choppy frame rates and lengthy load times, The Sexy Brutale is a fun, worthwhile experience. The highs are high, but then the game chugs or hitches during a long load. Those ups and downs are present from beginning to end. No matter what though, I definitely recommend this game as something to be tried, just maybe not this particular version.
It's mindless fun, with enough addictive strategy to keep playing. I loved weaving through the hundreds of enemies (whether they were zombies, spiders, or something in-between) so I could reach a power-up orb at the last second, to suddenly fry everything around me with a flame thrower. It's a great time all around, and if you have the itch, give it a try.
The story is great, the music is fine, and the game runs well in both docked and handheld mode. Night in the Woods did not really leave me with a lot of complaints. So if you're interested in trying out a well-written story that is fairly relaxing in gameplay to get through, but also want to immerse yourself in an environment along the lines of something like Oxenfree, then Night in the Woods is definitely a must-have.
It doesn't do anything revolutionary for the genre, playing it safe in all regards. It has a lot of content in an enjoyable package. The loop of short, quick play sessions is addicting, and an experience I did not expect to have as much fun with as I did.
It plays great, it's hard to beat but addicting. There's enough content to enjoy looking for, and I honestly think that it's a well-designed game for what it is. It's small, and uses a lot of the same enemies, but that's a huge nitpick on what I think is a great game.
All in all, Opus: Rocket of Whispers offers a long game that has a lot of mindless fetch quests, but it has an interesting story that might reel some folks in. If you're looking for a calming, easy game to pass the time, give it a shot. Otherwise, maybe let this one go.
After roughly two hours, a second chase sequence with a large yellow animal begins, and the player has two minutes and 30 seconds to complete the boss fight, or the game will crash and delete the entire save. This happened to me, and was frustrating, and it took me about an hour to return to where I was, having known how to solve the previous puzzles. SONKA has also put out a walkthrough online, detailing bypassing the glitch.
