While newer players could be frustrated by camera limits, some gameplay quirks, and overall lack of personality, simulation fans can see minutes turn to hours when playing Pure Pool. It's a highly entertaining game that I've sunk more time into than expected.
Like me, if you own most of the Pinball FX3 tables, this one should make its way to your library. I'll continue to support Zen Studio's DLC, popping my virtual quarters and again to top my high scores. Williams Pinball – Volume 6 is addictive fun.
Overall, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is a good game. That said, it hasn't made me as interested in its sequels (that I've yet to play) as I thought it would. If anything, it makes me long for the original with its, if not timeless, nostalgic visuals. But the accessibility tweaks make this entry useful for new players who've yet to experience it.
Somewhat short for its genre but reasonably sweet, Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World comes recommended for fans. While speech is certainly missed, the art style is inviting to the eyes. It plays it straight, but the fun characters and satisfying puzzles make it well worthwhile for those who overlooked it upon initial release.
As a solo game, I admit this one won't endure for me as a series newbie. It's just okay, at best. But if you're a returning player or wish to experience it in co-op, there's positively good fun to be had. You can lose track of time, making all manner of tasty-looking dishes while bobbing your head to the great soundtrack.
Although I still get a kick out of seeing these Neo Geo Pocket Color games on the Nintendo Switch, some fare better than others. THE LAST BLADE: Beyond the Destiny is my last choice. The combat's a little too sluggish, the presentation a little too uneven, and the overall package a little too dated. I'd check out one of the prior NGPC releases instead.
Real-life hunters should appreciate Hunting Simulator 2. Virtual hunters may sometimes find themselves in want, as this game can straddle the line between relaxing and dull. But it should grow on you, as your canine companion also grows beside you. You'll develop "nerves of steel, and an incredible amount of patience." Be prepared to invest a lot of time to get the most out of this entertaining if uneven offering, though.
A different kind of point-and-click adventure, Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders has both highs and lows on the Nintendo Switch. But it's the quantity and quality of speech that pushes it over the edge for me, despite the inexplicable lack of handheld play.
