Kingdom Hearts III a beautiful game with a heart like few other games. It does have a harder entry point than most games, but catching up is worth it. Even newcomers can jump in. Just don’t expect the game to hold your hand narratively. Kingdom Hearts III is not a perfect conclusion to the saga, but it’s pretty damn close.
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair provides plenty of fun for fans of the platform genre. The game may have some small drawbacks, but it shines in most of what it sets out to do. In a world of dozens of platformers, it manages to hold its own.
BlazBlue: Central Fiction Special Edition on Nintendo Switch is a really good game, but not without some setbacks. You won't find much activity if you're looking to play online, which is a huge bummer for gamers who aren't keen on playing with friends in person. The asking price is also a bit high, but other than that, you'll have a great time with this 2D fighting game.
Metro Exodus is worth a playthrough, even if some of its components need a little work. The game does a brilliant job of building an enticing atmosphere in its many environments while telling a compelling story. The gunplay and crafting system are interesting enough to carry you until the end, even if some of the characters aren't. It's a lengthy adventure, one that I took about a couple dozen to get through.
Pikuniku is worth your money and time. It may not be a revolutionary work of high art, but it’s definitely enjoyable. I’d recommend buying it for the Nintendo Switch so you can play it in pieces, but the PC version (which I played) is perfectly acceptable. This is a game I’m going to tell my friends about and get them to buy.
There aren't enough points on the scale to accurately score Smash Ultimate; it’s almost a disservice to score a game like this. There’s nothing like it on the market, nothing that dominates the genre so completely. This game is as near to perfect as any game will ever be. There may never be another entry in the Super Smash Bros. franchise like this, so savor it as long as you can.
ABZU is an amazing, self-contained experience with really minimal performance issues on Nintendo Switch. There’s not really anything to dislike about this game, which is a worse way of saying that ABZU is a phenomenal experience that I would recommend to anyone. It doesn’t matter what platform you play it on, just play it.
I think the only real use for this game is as a prank gift. Don’t buy the physical version because that can be resold or returned. I’m talking about logging into your friend’s console account and buying the digital copy so that it’s in their game library forever, a reminder of life’s cruelty. You know what? It’s not worth the money or embarrassment of them finding out you knew about this game.
So is Super Meat Boy worth another go? Even if you bought and played the game halfway through its lifespan, I would say that it’s a definite “yes.” For newcomers who enjoy pain- I mean, who enjoy a challenge, I’m excited for you. You’re going to have a fantastic time yelling at your Switch while loving every minute of it.
I love Japanese games, but Demon Gaze II fails to deliver in almost every area. By the time the credits rolled around, I was relieved rather than satisfied. There is some good content in here, but you can only take so much of it before you're just done.
My time with King Oddball left me more frustrated than anything else. There were brief times when I enjoyed myself, but I mostly just wanted to stop playing. I think you’re better off playing Angry Birds or something else if you really want a game in this genre.
