Freedom Planet is full of retro charm but isn’t held back by it, instead pushing forward with new ideas to stand on its own two legs. The eShop is full of winning software, but don’t let this one slip by under your nose!
Four years after its initial Steam release, Freedom Planet still stands as a good modern interpretation of the classic platforming formula. The multiple characters play differently enough that it's worthwhile to replay the game to see the different pathways and use different strategies to beat bosses. The two main modes do a good job of pleasing players who value narrative and those who prefer action, and the nice presentation solidifies Freedom Planet as a good choice for platforming fans.

This is clearly a game that takes its inspiration seriously, and is a lovingly-crafted tribute to a genre of games that a lot of people, are really fond of. No new additions compared to previous releases, but if you haven't already played this then don't hesitate to pick it up on the eStore.
Freedom Planet is a fun action platformer that is a blast to play on Nintendo Switch. I finished my first run with the game in around 3 hours and change, and was definitely ready to do it all over again with another character since they each play very differently. Be sure to check this one out!
Freedom Planet is out now on Nintendo Switch. Thank you to Marvelous Games for kindly supplying this review code.
Since the game released back in 2015, it's been ported from system to system and has received good to excellent praises throughout the years and once again this is not exception. The game is fun, fast and engaging. If you're looking for something that fits those categories then look no further than Freedom Planet to stop those jittery nerves. This game get my rating of 8 out of 10 for being a colorful, speedy, surprise.
The game has been around for a few years now, but if you haven’t had the chance to pick it up, this Switch port is definitely an opportunity you don’t want to pass up.
Freedom Planet will immediately bring back memories of 16-bit platformers, namely with the Sonic series but it would be unfair to see this as a mere Sonic copy. Freedom Planet displays more than enough to tell itself apart from the supersonic blue hedgehog and the game's stunning visual presentation, its level of content and fun gameplay mechanics will satisfy Nintendo Switch players at a surprising level.

This is an indie game that understands well how to properly take inspiration from the classic Sonic games, and as a result, it manages to stand out among the many clones. The impact of Freedom Planet is far less now, but it has the potential to carve out its own identity in the future.
