7 / 10.0 - Say No! More
Apr 9, 2021

The levels are pretty repetitive and lack a lot of player agency. While the style, atmosphere, themes and story are very good I don't think I will return to Say No! More in the future. Not because I think I shouldn't say no more, if anything this game made me realize that I do say yes too many times in my life, but because like a good self-help book, the real change begins when you're finished reading the story.

5.5 / 10.0 - Root Film
Mar 20, 2021

But combined with the frustrating controls and repetitive music, Root Film becomes a drag to play through. I sincerely hope that this story will be adapted into other forms, because there is a lot of potential here. A video game simply shouldn't have made the cut.

8.5 / 10.0 - Blue Fire
Feb 12, 2021

This metroidvania-like approach really clicked for me and made this 3D platformer feel special, which few others have over the past decade. While performance on Switch is definitely not fantastic, with constant suffering through crashes, I still wanted to go back every time to discover what else was hidden in this world. I certainly cannot wait to see what these developers have in store next, because Blue Fire has definitely awoken a burning passion in me to see what lies ahead.

7.5 / 10.0 - Haven
Feb 4, 2021

Something that isn't there to satisfy people that ship in-game characters or gives them additional stats, but two characters that live together and struggle together. They each have a complete personality and to see that flourish, to see them flourish together, is something I have rarely if ever experienced in a game. Haven is not perfect, certainly not on Switch, but I would follow these characters to the edge of space and beyond.

5 / 10.0 - Nuts
Feb 4, 2021

The visual design harms the experience, and there are frequent framerate stutters and hiccups while playing the later levels. I enjoyed the premise and the ideas the game presents, but within this context the Switch version does not do the game justice. There is nut much to be gained here.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game - Complete Edition is still an incredibly polished and fun beat ‘em up that has truly stood the test of time. While it’s slightly annoying that playing with the other characters requires you to replay entire levels and that the online features and a full playable fighter are currently locked behind Ubisoft’s ridiculous server sign-in, in the end this is still a great title deserving of its re-release.

It's a better Wii Fit, in the sense that Fitness Boxing 2 trims the fat (ha!) that were the slow exercises and loading times. But much like Wii Fit, I cannot guarantee that it will maintain your interest for long or present enough new features over time. At the very least, you won't have to stow away a balance board in a closet somewhere after punching out.

8.5 / 10.0 - Ghostrunner
Nov 25, 2020

Overall, Ghostrunner is one of the sleeper hits for this fairly empty winter season on the Switch. Where the foundation of titles like these was laid down by games such as Mirror's Edge, Ghostrunner improves the combat systems and uses many tricks to keep you on your toes. Complemented by both the cyberpunk aesthetic and gameplay, this title will keep you coming back to perfect your ninja-skills.

8 / 10.0 - If Found...
Oct 23, 2020

Knowing that even now, in a year where everything feels like a hazy wave of terrible events, sadness and darkness, we can strive towards making a brighter future. It might've been a short experience, but If Found… made me experience something that I have missed over the last few months. For that I can only be grateful.

4.5 / 10.0 - Cloudpunk
Oct 17, 2020

I'm pretty sure that underneath these performance issues there is an interesting world ready to be explored. But the game's problems run deeper than it's graphical shortcomings. The pacing feels slow and doesn't give the player many options to fully explore the world that is being presented. If Cloudpunk looks interesting to you, I'd highly recommend you look into other possible versions you might be able to play, because the Switch simply isn't the place to explore the city of Nivalis.
