In the end, I can happily say that I’m glad to have a solid pinball game on my Switch, and fans of Senran Kagura will find plenty to like with this latest entry.

70 / 100 - SolSeraph
Jul 9, 2019

SolSeraph’s definitely a successful copycat that lacks originality. If you haven’t heard of or played ActRaiser, SolSeraph will seem quite unique. It’s an example of the finished product being greater than the sum of its parts: a good action platformer combined with a good RTS that makes for a very good package.

40 / 100 - Sky Force Reloaded
Dec 15, 2017

Sky Force Reloaded starts the player all souped up, and then strips everything away going into the meat of the game.

I'm normally the type of player who will for sure choose the 8 or 16-bit option, but the modern art and music in Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap were so good, that I played 95% of the game full modern.

It might sound crazy, but the story of Kingdom Hearts is compelling, epic, fun, and truly heartwarming.

95 / 100 - Night in the Woods
Mar 13, 2017

The Samurai Jack-like graphics seem cutesy, but Night in the Woods earns a master class in tone.

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk is rated M for a reason; it’s very gory.

75 / 100 - Double Dragon IV
Feb 3, 2017

But like Capcom did with Mega Man 9 and 10, Double Dragon IV looks and plays like an NES Double Dragon.

The content is great, but the relative value is horrible. If you are a big Kingdom Hearts fan (and really that’s who this collection is intended for), you’re going to be overjoyed.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero has a fantastic sense of humor and swag.

88 / 100 - Earth's Dawn
Nov 8, 2016

On paper, it’s a generic story but as the game goes on it serves to be just interesting enough to make it give the player some extra drive.

Some might appreciate this stripped down approach, but I like a little more visual variation in my games.

It's a serious game of the year contender, and undisputed grand slam champion of HD remakes. - See more at: http://cogconnected.com/review/odin-sphere-leifthrasir-review/#sthash.jyelFECV.dpuf

In the end, this is the best version available of a great game, so if you haven’t played it, and want the most up-to-date/complete version, this is the one for you. Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is highly recommended for fans of Tactical RPGs, JRPGs, or games that uniquely blend gameplay elements to create original gaming experiences.

The graphics are fantastic, and the 3D game maps are very fun to explore.

All of these features lead to a package created with lots of love. My only complaint is that only the NES Mega Man games are covered in this package.

I have no complaints about the plot, but some of the game's dialogue is pretty bad.

91 / 100 - Amplitude HD
Dec 30, 2015

The new game is full of fantastic modern electronic tracks. Sadly there are no big licensed artists to be found, but there are plenty of Harmonix favorites like Freezepop and Symbion Project. My favorite tracks include Perfect Brain, Dalatecht, and Crystal.
