Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3 might be worth a look once it’s in the bargain bin, but for now it’s not worth the £40 full price.

If you’re looking for a 3D-looking Smash Brothers-style fighting game that’s simply not as good as that Nintendo classic then try this.

There could be a cracking little game in here for kids, if the level design were more captivating and the job at hand felt more worthwhile. It pales into comparison compared to the Marios of this world.

But once the novelty of a new game fades, what we're left with is a failure of a title that simply loses itself after the first hour or so. And you end up going in bizarre circles without any sense of satisfaction.

But it all comes down to control and right now Surgeon Simulator 2 is too broken when it comes to gameplay to really do the great ideas behind the game justice.

Developer Big Ant Studios claim this is “the most comprehensive tennis experience” but sadly when it comes to gameplay it’s more Queens than Wimbledon.

It’s got a real Flash Gordon vibe to it and the humour really helps to stick the landing when it comes to the storytelling. The voice-acting is cracking and make for regular giggles, if not somewhat stereotyped. But when it comes to gameplay its fine but not anything to write home about. A nice game but not a great game.

For those with the original, it's a bit of a no-brainer to download and resample this version.

We’ve all moved on a bit from these games generally and their appeal, while a flash of fun, lies in hours rather than days of gaming. Beat-em-up fans will not be disappointed.

For music lovers who can’t play instruments, keen on perhaps learning how songs pull together, this will appeal. But for gamers looking at an indie purchase with longevity and diversity of gameplay, it’s best to avoid.

The overall idea of In Nightmare is solid. The trapped-in-a-child’s-nightmare vibe and slow unveiling of his past traumas feel fresh. But the final delivery in a game was just ‘meh’ and there are better puzzlers out there. A more polished sequel could potentially do very well.

There’s clever use of the new controller options. But when it comes to video games, gameplay is ultimately everything and this title simply won’t blow you away.

There’s not much by the way of emotional connection to this game. It’s old-fashioned, cliched in its storytelling and I found myself constantly hitting the skip button to get to the actual fighting.

Is it a fun classic side-scroller that’s worth £17 of your money? Yes, if you like or liked these games and want something both fresh and classic all in one joyous colour bundle.

Don’t expect incredible layers of detail and endless stats about your fitness level, this is a fun family game and it’s aim is really just to get you off your bum. You’ll have fun with the family, sweat a little and enjoy yourself.

There’s a lot going for WRC10. It’s slick, in-depth and full of authenticity. That’ll appeal to fans of the genre who want to go deep into the endless tweaks and changes available. But it isn’t the best driving game out there and ultimately, that’s what holds this back from being a classic racer

If you’re in the mood for something weird, different looking and of the RPG variety, give it a go. For those wanting an easy, predictable game to settle into - ignore.

Labyrinth City is fun, puzzley at points and packed full of chuckle moments as you dissect the lovely world around you. But the game is a bit of a one-trick pony and it won’t be too long before you tire and move on to another Switch game.

So if you’ve only given this a passing glance when scrolling game trailers on YouTube and it’s not particularly floating your boat, be prepared for a decent player here but not one that’s going to dazzle you for months ahead.

It’s not too taxing and the gameplay is easily conquerable, meaning older gamers should probably avoid. And while it does get very samey after a while, the storytelling is always funny and the extra element of putting yourself in the game adds to the lols.
