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.

Battle Princess Madelyn follows the footsteps of 1980s 2D classics with very high levels of difficulty. With its metroidvania elements, Battle Princess Madelyn ends up not living up to its expectations but its more action-oriented arcade mode is certainly an enjoyable experience. While it's not a groundbreaking title and it suffers from gameplay problems, Battle Princess Madelyn has its redeeming factors.

8 / 10 - Rain World
Jan 19, 2019

Rain World is not an easy game and that can only be good. The experience puts emphasis on the difficulty level and thanks to its very well designed game world, Rain World is set to quickly grab the player's attention and become a very cherished game, despite its difficulty sometimes reaching rather frustrating levels.

This War of Mine is not the most conventional game with a war background going and this is nothing but positive for this work, where survival and resources are vital for the player to reach the end. There are technical issues to solve but these take a step back next to the game's gameplay mechanics and environment, which are bound to keep the player closely wrapped around the game's concept for some time.

7 / 10 - Shadow Fight 2
Dec 2, 2018

Shadow Fight 2 joins the large catalogue of fighting games on the Nintendo Switch in a genre that has a lot of competition. While this may not be the finest masterpiece ever done, Shadow Fight 2 features an original gameplay which coupled with its art style, can make this a fun and enjoyable experience, despite its disappointing single player mode.

9 / 10 - The Messenger
Nov 26, 2018

The Messenger is a marvel of a game in the form of tributes to classical 8 and 16-bit series, with accompanying styles to match. With its surprisingly involving and hilarious plot, The Messenger manages to feature both plenty of action and exploration in a retro style and to grab the player's attention to its events in a way that few games of a similar style do.

8 / 10 - Moonlighter
Nov 20, 2018

Moonlighter is an appealing and tough action game, with a management side and roguelike elements which builds up the Nintendo Switch catalogue further and further. With a challenging difficulty level and some eye-catching visual details, players will find themselves very much absorbed by Moonlighter's elements and it will be difficult to resist the simple but demanding mechanics of dungeon exploration and selling of items.

9 / 10 - Transistor
Nov 12, 2018

Transistor is easily one of the finest works being made available in the Nintendo Switch catalogue. Fans of action games and of turn-based combat games will be delighted at this work, which will keep players very well entertained for a long time thanks to its long-lasting lifespan and to its fantastic soundtrack.

With their very well-crafted environment, original enemies, plentiful details all around and incentives to exploration, the two games that are part of this set will most certainly appeal to fans of horror, whose taste is more and more addressed in the growing Nintendo Switch library.

8 / 10 - The Room
Oct 27, 2018

The Room is a fun and well designed puzzle game that suits the Nintendo Switch perfectly, thanks to its original puzzles, good control system and overall environment. Where the game misses out is on its long-term replay value, as well as on its rather exaggerated price for a game of its size but fans of puzzle games will definitely get something out of this experience.
