Stranger Things 3: The Game can get the job done when it comes to recreating the environment of the very popular Netflix series, which by itself makes the game attractive to fans of Stranger Things, but the story is different when it comes to providing an interesting and involving gameplay, as its RPG elements feel superficial and the combat is far from enjoyable.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is plentiful in elements that will make Marvel universe fans happy and satisfied, whether in the amount of characters, their variety or the correct use of different Marvel series. But while this action RPG is rich in cooperative play, end-level bosses and characters, it also has some elements that stand on its way to stand higher, such as performance issues, a too simple combat system and a rather dry audio experience. Flaws notwithstanding, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is still worthy of the players' time, though it's certainly much more recommended to Marvel fans.

Super Cane Magic ZERO brings a mix of cartoonish art style and absurd comedy plot to a 2D action RPG and results in one of the most original efforts of the genre in the last few years. While the game's loading times and sound components could definitely use improvements, as well as the instructions regarding plot advances, the game provides a fun experience and it encourages the players to experiment, bringing an additional layer of fun in the form of its cooperative multiplayer component.

Battle Worlds: Kronos lands on the Nintendo Switch to fill the gap of strategy games in Nintendo's console and while it's not a groundbreaking piece of software, it does the job well enough. It's disappointing to see the level creator has been left out of this version but the game's lifespan and combat system, as well as its efficient (local only) multiplayer are certain to appeal to fans pf strategy games.

Slender: The Arrival lands on the Nintendo Switch six years after its original release and while the game's visual environment looks visibly dated, its sound atmosphere remains exquisite and transmits a feeling of restlessness. Where Slender: The Arrival falls below par is when it comes to its rather generic plot and a feeling of repetitiveness, aggravated by a short lifespan.

8 / 10 - Slay The Spire
Jun 24, 2019

Slay the Spire may have an unorthodox formula but it does it correctly: this intersection between card-based and roguelike games, Slay the Spire delivers an addictive, enjoyable and unpredictable, long-lasting experience which makes for yet another very welcome entry in the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

4 / 10 - Refunct
Jun 15, 2019

While the idea is laudable and worthy of attention, Refunct does very little to go beyond something superficial and short-lived. It's clear that there was potential to make this a more ambitious game, so what Refunct proposes feels like a big disappointment.

7 / 10 - Nidhogg 2
Jun 12, 2019

Niddhog 2 has studied the lessons from its predecessor and makes its way into the Nintendo Switch catalogue as a fun and fluid multiplayer experience. It shines less when it comes to solo play, as the game feels a lot less motivating when there is only one player involved, but those looking for enjoyable local multiplayer sessions will find Niddhog 2 to be a satisfying choice.

7 / 10 - Darkwood
May 30, 2019

As far as survival horrors on the Nintendo Switch go, Darkwood certainly knows how to keep players alert and on their toes, as well as to make them take their own decisions to survive. Where Darkwood doesn't fully stand out is when it comes to its visual environment, as well as on solving technical issues but beyond that, this is a game that will satisfy fans of the survival horror genre.

6 / 10 - The Low Road
May 23, 2019

The Low Road follows the footsteps of classic point and click adventures from two decades ago and does it with a marvelous looking art style and with a very good sound environment. Where The Low Road ends up falling short of expectations is when it comes to some aspects of its gameplay, which feels too cumbersome at times and overall, too limited to a textbook definition of point and click that was not brought into the contemporary age.

5 / 10 - Homo Machina
May 11, 2019

Homo Machina is based on a fun concept and the whole game is laden with funny puzzles and situations that will catch the player's attention immediately. It could be even better if Homo Machina featured a longer, more enjoyable lifespan and if its controls were improved when it comes to being played on a television screen. Homo Machina is an example of a game that does several things right and which needs more of that.

Mechstermination Force is yet another welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue, this time in the shape of a game that consists of one boss rush after another. With its tough, demanding and elaborate boss fights, Mechstermination Force is certain to appeal to players looking for a very challenging experience.

10 / 10 - Cuphead
Apr 17, 2019

Cuphead's arrival on the Nintendo Switch is a marvelous gift to players. The game's amazingly fluid action fits perfectly and without any downgrades on Nintendo's system and allows the whole experience to be replicated whether on a television screen or on the go. A shiny diamond of a game that every owner of a Nintendo Switch should get their hands on.

The Raven Remastered is not a revolutionary take on point and click adventures but it does a very good job at representing the genre in the contemporary age, especially in how it corrects some of the issues that affected those games in years past. Its original and interesting plot, as well as the high quality sound component and art style make this a very recommended game for longtime fans of the point and click genre.

Trine 2: Complete Story may not bring anything new but that hardly matters in this marvelous work. A brilliant puzzler with fluid controls and gameplay, a gorgeous art style which still holds on to this day and with the added handheld value of the Nintendo Switch, everyone should give Trine 2: Complete Story a go, including those who already know it.

8 / 10 - Unravel Two
Mar 30, 2019

Unravel Two is a very welcome arrival on the Nintendo Switch catalogue and one which seems perfect to play on the go. This puzzler with stunning visuals and soundtrack is fun and involving and gains a whole new dimension with its local multiplayer mode, which contribute to make Unravel Two one of the bright gems available for the Switch.

Warplanes: WW2 Dogfight tries to fill in a gap in the Nintendo Switch catalogue when it comes to aerial combat games. While it provides a good amount of aircraft and missions to fulfill, the overall experience is very disappointing: its heavy and clunky gameplay feels very removed from what the game is supposed to deliver and its sub-par visual environment, not to mention almost absent audio component, make this an effort that is better left outside the radar of all but the most hardcore and needy aerial combat fans.

7 / 10 - Trials Rising
Mar 2, 2019

Trials Rising is the latest game in the Trials series, a name associated with very high and demanding difficulty levels. This chapter brings to the Nintendo Switch a game that is both very fun but also affected by technical flaws. While the experience is mostly positive, it's important that the flaws get corrected through updates, as that would significantly improve the experience.

8 / 10 - Observer
Feb 27, 2019

Observer is something unique on the Nintendo Switch catalogue, a game that brings two very different gameplay styles together and which creates a haunting and disturbing experience, in the background of a marvelous cyberpunk dystopian atmosphere and with a plot that allows for several different endings. This is a game everyone should try at least once.

RIOT - Civil Unrest pits the player in the midst of scenes of violent urban confrontations based on real life events and is worthy of praise for introducing such an unusual premise. When it comes to execution, though, RIOT is less likely to impress, especially when it comes to its control system and to problems when assessing the most relevant elements on the screen. The promise of future updates can sort out some of the game's flaws but until then, this is a title that's very difficult to recommend.
