A borderline unusable map and generally difficult combat combined with traps that kill you immediately could definitely turn people off, but those who choose to persevere will likely enjoy this game enough to see it through to its obtuse, confusing ending.
The Hotline Miami Collection provides one excellent game and one very good game, and between unlocking all of the weapons, masks, and finding the secrets that hide beneath its blood soaked, neon exterior, you’ll be coming back at least a few times to try and master it all.
MotoGP 19 is a huge leap in the right direction, with this being an excellent title for the fans of MotoGP. Milestone’s making the right steps, and their next entry could be the de facto MotoGP experience if they keep trending upward. They continue to improve the quality of the game with each release to marked effect, and it’s safe to say that MotoGP is in good hands.
In its current state, it’s hard to recommend Saints Row The Third. The Switch has been fortunate in receiving some ports of titles that were widely well received or have fairly large cult followings, but I can’t say that Saints Row has made the same successful jump as some of those other ported titles.
Despite Anthem’s very noticeable hiccups, there’s enough of a solid groundwork here that I think Anthem can be built off of into something unique. Sadly, it falls into the same shortcomings as its predecessors, featuring a minimal endgame and some almost obtuse design choices.
For those who are eager for a new turn-based tactics game that succeeds at trying something new, or for those who have been keeping an eye on this game like I have over the past few years, Wargroove is immensely satisfying and certainly doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon.
Pikuniku is definitely a bit of an odd title. It’s a little shorter than I was hoping, but across the entirety of the game I was never really uninterested or bored, I actually really enjoyed my time with it. If I had to say though, I feel like there could have been a little more effort put into really branching out with some of the mechanics, but I’m not disappointed with the game by any means, I just found myself left wanting more.
Katamari Damacy Reroll doesn’t really add much in regards to new content, which is disappointing, but not a dealbreaker by any stretch. Unlike other remasters, Monkeycraft went for the “optimize the crap out of it and make it look pretty” approach and instead gave us a visually updated version of what is already a very complete game with a surprising amount of replayability that is as immensely fun as it was back in the day.
If you’re looking for a truly authentic retro experience, then you can’t go wrong with Save Me Mr. Tako! just keep in mind that it even comes with the negatives of that age of games. Despite those shortcomings though, it’s a charming romp through and through.
