This kind of game is perfect to kill some time with friends without worrying about spending hours on mastering different techniques. Overall, Super Rocket Shootout offers a frantic and fun fighting experience that anyone can pick up and play. With captivating visuals and simple yet fun gameplay, this is not one to glance over.
The visuals are charming and there is lots of opportunity to try different power-ups and items to see how they impact how you play. Plus, you can play through split-screen with a friend, which is a nice addition. This is a unique game that is definitely worth sinking some hours into to completely enjoy all that it has to offer.
Agatha Knife is insanely intelligent and strives through its unique narrative. The art direction and music compliment the theme, making it a solid package overall. This brings well-deserved diversity to the point-and-click genre. The developers brought something very new to the table and proved the vast amount of potential in a game focused solely on a fun, weird story.
The Adventures of Elena Temple is a great platformer in a super-cool package of retro novelty. If what you're looking for is a quick fix of good gameplay with some old-school flair, this is a perfect choice. However, if you are looking for extensive exploration or near-impossible platforming, this experience may be underwhelming to you.
There is a clear sense of passion here delivered through pure fun. The developers were successful in creating a new take on concepts originally conceived decades ago. This new shoot-‘em-up not only celebrates its predecessor but delivers a colorful, energetic experience that isn't easy to put down.
Zen Bound 2 is the ideal way to experience the full capabilities of the Joy-Con's gyro sensor. I don't think any game has come close to this since 1-2 Switch, but that game wasn't very fun or engaging for longer than a short party. Here, we have an expertly crafted puzzle game that will keep you captivated for a very long time. Ignore the fact that this is an eight-year-old game as it has been renewed for a long, welcome life on the Switch.
If you're craving more Splatoon, this will definitely suffice. Other than a few less than inspiring levels that you'll thankfully move through quickly (or just skip), this is a worthwhile break from the multiplayer modes we've been playing through since Splatoon 2's launch. Even if you haven't touched the original campaign, now is a great time to enjoy this single-player Splatoon experience.
Nevertheless, if you enjoyed the previous installments in the Lego franchise and want more of that, then this will be worth your time. The same goes if you love The Incredibles and want to experience these characters and events in a clever new way. If either of these sound like you, I have no problem recommending this incredible brick-filled playground.
This is great for newcomers and veterans of retro fighters as this one is easy to learn and hard to master. Just keep in mind, if you're looking for anything to collect or any sort of progression besides just ranking yourself up, you won't find it here. The authentic retro style and addicting gameplay, however, is still worth your time– especially if you want something that you can pick up and play in quick and insanely fun bursts.
What the game does lack, however, is content to come back to after mastering the quick 20XX runs. This doesn't mean that 20XX is worth skipping out on, though. This endless retro shooter is worth checking out, especially if you love Mega Man X or just solid platforming in general.
I feel like this genre is better suited for PCs or even tablets rather than portable gaming systems because it feels too cluttered for the Switch's screen and not comfortable on any television. The core gameplay definitely works how you'd expect and you'll find plenty of tasks to accomplish. Maybe this would be a good one to jump in and out of while making some potato salad. Yum.
If you just want more Overcooked though and aren't expecting a revolution, you'll be satisfied with the amount of new content. New players to the series will enjoy this on its own and since online is now available, this opens up multiplayer play to just about everyone whether you have friends next to you or not. Whichever way you play, this is a fun and frantic experience that everyone deserves to enjoy.
Any fan of platforming will be more than satisfied with the joy of speeding around the long levels and the derivative gameplay of the different characters. Those who have played this game on Wii U or other platforms will be disappointed though as there is no new content included in this release. Nevertheless, this is not a game to glance over and is nothing short of a thrill ride.
The Switch release plays just as smoothly as any modern game. No frame drops are present and it works beautifully in handheld mode. While there is no new content with this release, it still feels right at home on the Switch. If you've played Bastion in the past or if you've missed out on the previous releases, I wholeheartedly recommend Bastion for anyone looking for a fantastic action RPG.
I don't recommend Hover: Revolt of Gamers on the Switch at all. Even after five years of development, it feels incredibly undercooked. The user interface is not intuitive, and the gameplay and camera together make it feel like a bad VR game. Maybe it's more fun on a powerful desktop PC, but it just doesn't feel at home here.
The addition of the newer dash moves brings it closer to the more recent Sonic games in feel, but if you want speed, Sonic Mania would be a better pick. Still, M2 did phenomenal work on bringing this game to the Switch in a way that doesn't feel stale. If you want to see where Sonic came from and are interested in how the new features enhance this classic game, there's no reason to stay away.
