5 / 10.0 - Desert Child
Dec 28, 2018

Desert Child is one of those “love-it-or-hate-it” titles. On one hand, it's got a great soundtrack and excellent visuals. On the other, its gameplay is dull and repetitive. Be sure you know what you're getting into with this one.

Mercenaries Wings: The False Phoenix is good, but it falls short of being great. Still, it's a perfectly serviceable title sure to scratch the itch for those waiting for another Final Fantasy Tactics.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix might be different from the DS version of the game, but it's still a great package. It's got a unique, customizable combat system, a modern story filled with intrigue and heart, as well as a fantastic soundtrack

6.5 / 10.0 - Armello
Oct 23, 2018

Armello is worth a look for board game enthusiasts. For those looking for a party game to play with friends, its slow pace and lack of local multiplayer make it hard to recommend.

3 / 10.0 - Fall of Light
Sep 12, 2018

Fall of Light's combat is dully simplistic, with the escort aspects causing some irritating backtracking. Its presentation does little to differentiate itself from the game it's based on nor is it presented in a particularly good way either.

7.5 / 10.0 - Minit
Aug 15, 2018

Minit is a bite-sized Zelda perfect for brief moments of play. While the time management mechanic forces a lot of backtracking and can make solving the game's puzzle's frustrating, there's a deceptive amount of content.

8 / 10.0 - Hand of Fate 2
Aug 6, 2018

Hand of Fate 2 merges tried and true conventions and creates a unique experience. While the individual components lean on the simpler side of things, as a whole the game is greater than the sum of its parts. It's a game that's best played in small chunks, making it a very good entry to the Switch library!

6.5 / 10.0 - Mushroom Wars 2
Jul 30, 2018

The gameplay of Mushroom Wars 2 is capable, there just isn't a lot to it. Despite the game's one-hundred plus levels, there's not enough deviation to justify sitting down with it for an extended period of time. It's more suited for playing a level or two while killing a brief amount of time. And that's okay, the game was designed for mobile platforms after all. For fifteen dollars, however, you can get a much more fulfilling experience.

7 / 10.0 - The Lost Child
Jul 17, 2018

The Lost Child is a style of game has been done to death, but there are some interesting ideas found within the aggro and astral burst systems.

4 / 10.0 - Milanoir
Jul 1, 2018

Milanoir captures the essence of 70's gangster films well, but it's all style and no substance. The writing is juvenile, the difficulty ramp is ridiculous, and the persistent glitches sour the whole experience. If you're someone who seeks accomplishment in conquering an absolutely brutal challenge, you might find some enjoyment here. Otherwise, there isn't a whole lot else to get out of this game.

The controls feel right, the challenge is satisfying, the presentation is nostalgic, and there are numerous reasons to keep returning to it.

6.5 / 10.0 - Atomine
Jun 4, 2018

Atomine is decent but it doesn't do anything unique. The whole experience is brought down by annoyances such as randomly spawning enemies, boring level design, a lack of variety, and unbalanced weapons. There are worse roguelikes out there, but there are also way better ones.

Tengai is a simple shooter with a lot of charm. The gameplay, while nothing special, is perfectly serviceable. And with twenty-plus endings, adjustable difficulty, as well as multiple fun and colorful characters, there's a lot of incentive to keep coming back after each playthrough.

6 / 10.0 - Late Shift
Apr 27, 2018

Night Shift is a neat concept, and it's pretty entertaining on a play-through or two. However, it's really tedious to replay, and the writing isn't particularly good. If you're a big fan of choose-your-own-adventure games, pick it up on a sale.

6 / 10.0 - The Bunker
Apr 17, 2018

While The Bunker lets you explore an actual nuclear fallout shelter, accompanied by great sound design and decent acting, it can be completed in a single sitting. There's very little in terms of gameplay variance, and there are other games out there that'll give you more playtime for your $12. Unless you like the novelty of an FMV game on your Switch, give it a pass unless there's a sale.

I want to rate Urban Trial Playground a little higher, because I found it to be an addictive little distraction, but there just isn't a whole lot of content. And what is there is very poorly optimized, which can't be excused when they expect you to pay $20 for it. If the devs patch the game to fix the crashing and tighten up the physics, I'd be willing to give the game another look. But as it is now, I'm going to have to give it a just-below average score. If this game goes on sale for around $5, then I'd say to give it a try if physics-based biking games are your thing. Otherwise, stick to one of the many other more polished and full-featured bike stunt games out there.

3 / 10.0 - Party Planet
Mar 22, 2018

An uninspired presentation and 30 worse versions of games — most of which you can find dozens of other clones of for free on a mobile device or flash site — make Party Planet a total ripoff. It's lazy and it's not worth the cost. Do yourself or whoever you might plan to buy this for a favor and put that $30 towards something more worth your money.

7 / 10.0 - Aperion Cyberstorm
Feb 24, 2018

Aperion Cyberstorm is a twin-stick shmup that's pleasing to both the eyes and ears. It's a pretty decent distraction for when you're on the bus or if you want a quick party game. Unfortunately, there's not really a whole lot of variety in gameplay. Plus, enemies can sometimes have more health than they need, making the experience repetitive. But if you need a twin stick shooter on the go, you could do worse.
