Good Job! throws some surprises at you in the first hour or two of the game but once you play it for longer than that, it all starts to feel bland and samey. It’s not one of my favorite indie puzzlers on the Switch right now but if you’re someone who wants a quick and silly physics-based game to play with a friend, it’s fine for that but I wouldn’t rush out to buy it.
Mario Party: The Top 100 was such a strong idea, but it unfortunately falls flat as an actual full-priced Mario Party title. I still don't know why this wasn't developed for the Switch instead of the 3DS. With some decent game boards, and a few more minigames, The Top 100 could have been a great party game for the Switch. So despite some short-lived fun moments, this is not a party to go to unless you have some friends along in tow..
If you’re someone who has not played a Mystery Dungeon game before and are looking for a chill and passive dungeon-crawler to sit back and relax while listening to a podcast or watching a television show, this will work wonders for you.
Bugsnax is an odd and wacky experience that’ll be remembered as the black swan of the PS5 launch lineup, in the best way possible. It highlights PlayStation’s commitment to having a diverse catalog of games at the PS5 launch, and with Bugsnax being free on PS Plus for PS5 players at launch, there’s no reason not to try it if you’re a subscriber.
At the end of the day, Ninjala is a surprisingly entertaining free-to-play game that doesn’t require players to pull out their wallets to have a little fun. The microtransactions are all cosmetic, free content is on its way to add even more depth, and the visual style just oozes with charm.
Yoshi's Crafted World is a treat to play and is highly recommended for any Yoshi fan out there, even for the ones who skipped out the most recent entries. Believe me, this may look cute, but Crafted World may fall into being one of the most entertaining and visually appealing games that the Switch has to offer.
You go inside of him, so it really couldn't get any deeper than that.
While I wish WarioWare Gold had more new than old, it's definitely the ultimate package of microgames that will give any fan of WarioWare something to truly enjoy. There's tons of content here that presents Wario and friends in a shiny new light that – for a series that has always sort of taken the back seat – is much appreciated as a longtime fan myself.
As a fan of other rhythm games on Switch such as Thumper and Voez, Runner3 definitely takes the cake as one of the best that the console has to offer. Choice Provisions has done something special with Runner3; it's a game that might make you want to scream internally over and over again, but at the same time, will make you smile from ear to ear while jamming out when you finally overcome those pesky obstacles.
