Limits, unfortunately, are ultimately what keep this game from greatness.

If you like early 2000s 3D third person platformers, this is worth a look, but be aware that it isn’t as modern as the current promotional material might make it out to be.

B - Abzu
Dec 20, 2018

In an era when people also routinely pay that amount for a Blu-ray or digital copy of a movie, an experience like Abzû might be worth the trip for some people. And for players itching to go swimming, this is one of the best options currently out there, especially on Switch.

Despite its flaws, especially on plot, This is the Police 2 still manages to be a compelling piece of gaming. With gameplay that can really suck players in and no shortage of police-style problems to deal with, it's definitely an experience worth looking into.

It's definitely a solid platformer with a lot of replay value, and at a cost that is very compelling. It's also hard and it takes more time to figure the ins and outs than it really should. For players who love platformers and don't want a game to hold their hands, look no further. For those who want a simple, kid-friendly experience, this probably won't do it.

It's quite possible these issues might get resolved in a future patch, but for now, they're part of the package, and it's not clear how easily a patch could fix all of them. Solving the co-op problem and fixing some of the glitches are certainly feasible, but some of the more fundamental problems— the graphics, the gameplay, the hit detection— may be more elusive. In the end, Moonfall Ultimate is a game that is, regardless of the title, anything but ultimate, at least right now.

Even then, though, it's hard not to like what the developer has done here, and for that, this is definitely a game worth a look.

B- - Tanzia
Aug 7, 2018

In looking at Tanzia as a whole, there's no question that this game is a labor of love for the two principal developers, a fact most evident during the closing credits. It's also a game that left this reviewer wishing there was more: more spells, more potions, more places to explore, and more plotline, both in terms of the characters already introduced and the wider world of the game.

Despite some of the aggravations, Smoke and Sacrifice is a fascinating entry into the Switch lineup, and is worth a look for players pining for a crafting-based action RPG on that system.

Overall, Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Deluxier Edition is a quality addition to the ever-growing Switch library, and really exemplifies what makes the eShop so awesome.

Death Road to Canada is a quality game with a good deal of depth, both with the characters and the gameplay proper.

Overall, Regalia is a deep game with a lot to do, but it's also a game that is hard, especially as players learn the ropes early on.

Overall, Wulverblade is a pretty interesting game with classic action and a heavy helping of history, but it's also a game that is primarily for hardcore brawler fans who enjoy the pain of control issues and merciless gameplay. If that's not your cup of tea, you may want to look elsewhere.

The Adventure Pals is a superb action RPG platformer. With a fun story and an expansive world to explore, this adventure really augments the Switch lineup, and at a modest price. Definitely worth a look.

Players who enjoy bite-sized puzzlers (with a bit of challenge to boot) and the ability to create their own levels might find this worth trying out. If you're looking for something deeper, though, be mindful that, in this case, you're not going to get much more than you're paying for.

B+ - Shu
Mar 27, 2018

From the gorgeous, simple visuals to the ever-changing platforming, Shu is an excellent example of what a small developer can do to push the genre forward. For that reason, this game is worth a look for platforming fans.
