WRC 9 brings simulation rally racing to the Nintendo Switch, preserving the core gameplay of the original. With over one hundred rallies and a generous career mode, there's lots to keep you busy. But, with the many visual concessions, does it still hold up?

The grand historical strategy of Romance of the Three Kingdoms has had a rocky history. At its best, it is a dramatic, frantic, and tense strategy game that can compete with the best. At its worst, it focuses on dull mechanics and banal world conquering. So, where does the fourteenth instalment sit? Grand strategy or dull micro-managing?

8.8 / 10.0 - Olija
Jan 28, 2021

Olija is a new action-adventure game made by Skeleton Crew Studio, published by Devolver Digital, and showcasing all the hallmarks of an indie darling. With fast-paced combat and an addictive gameplay loop, it has the makings of another decent slasher. However, with the help of extraordinary animation, excellent pacing, and a heartfelt narrative, it is lifted to wonderful heights.

The ubiquitous game of 2019 is back with a co-op mode and is still as much of a joy as it was before. Why bother with 2020 when we can just be a silly goose terrorising timid British prudes? Whether it's cricketers or old people, no one is safe when the untitled goose is loose.

5 / 10.0 - Tropico 6
Nov 20, 2020

Tropico 6 for Nintendo Switch pairs grand city-building with a massive visual downgrade. While the gameplay is the same as it ever was, how can you enjoy building-up a grand archipelago when it's so hard to actually see it? Find out in our review.

8.5 / 10.0 - Röki
Oct 26, 2020

Röki is a heartfelt and heartwarming tale of siblings lost somewhere in the mystical cold of Scandanavia. It is an adventure game that both breaks down barriers and pushes to new heights. It is gorgeous to look at and listen to, and charming all the way through.

5.5 / 10.0 - Orangeblood
Oct 20, 2020

Come on into New Koza, a man-made island off the coast of Okinawa, in Orangeblood. A stylish hip-hop-inspired JRPG marred by clunky battles and dreadful dialogue. Gorgeous to look at and overall has a good vibe, but it's just not enough to save it.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition is the perfect way to play one of the best RPGs. Even though it came out in 2011 for the Nintendo Wii, its age doesn’t really show. Now, with enhanced visuals and a new story chapter, this definitive edition is an attempt at perfectness on the lovely Nintendo Switch, and it mostly succeeds.
