Mighty Switch Force! Collection
Top Critic Average
The team at Wayforward have been responsible for some of my favourite Indie games over the last few years – all of the games in the Shantae series, A Boy & His Blob and Contra 4. How I’ve never heard of the Mighty Switch Force! series is something that will continue to baffle me for a long time as this sort of game is right up my street.
Even if you've played these games before, I'd say this collection is absolutely worth picking up. It's wonderful to have them all on Switch since they were spread between three platforms originally (3DS, Wii U, Steam), and the Mighty Switch Force games are just plain fun and full of personality. I would like to have seen a collection of concept art a la the SNK and Street Fighter collections because Digital Eclipse has spoiled me forever with that kind of bonus content, but that doesn't take away from the experience, and I will never, ever get sick of kicking that ugly baby.
Mighty Switch Force Collection is a fantastic compilation of Wayforward’s puzzle platformer series. Containing the two major games, along with a remake and a spinoff, this is an almost complete collection, only missing that aforementioned puzzle game, which I honestly wish was added to supplement Academy. The controls are incredibly tight and just as responsive as they were in the original games, and with some of the best level designs in puzzle platformers.
Buying these games individually might’ve been a hard sell for some due to the almost non-existent story and generally very low run-time. The whole collection is a great value, though. For $20, you get three amazing platformers, and 20 hours worth of playtime, minimum.
Mighty Switch Force! Collection offers a lot of content for one low price. There's a lot to enjoy here.

It may not be entirely comprehensive yet Mighty Switch Force! Collection contains 3 excellent puzzle platformers that any fan of the genre will love.
Mighty Switch Force! Collection is a great way to bring Wayforward's 3DS series to the Switch that will undoubtedly appeal to both fans of the series and newcomers alike. The decision to separate the first game and its HD remaster is one we're not fully on board with, and we'd love to have seen some extra content like concept art and soundtracks. Nevertheless, every game included features superb gameplay and level design, making this a collection that every Switch owner should experience.
Mighty Switch Force! Collection is a very welcome compilation of the four games of the Mighty Switch Force series that even includes the added value of multiplayer options within Mighty Switch Force Academy. This collection more than deserve the players' attention and with this release, the fans of the series will get to revisit these games while newcomers will have the chance to step into this highly regarded franchise.

Players who have not experienced any of the titles, just one or just want them all together in one place should certainly pick this up. Fans of puzzlers and platforming alike should certainly look into the Mighty Switch Force collection. Honestly, the price of $19.99 is an amazing value, considering the amount of content included in this collection.
Mighty Switch Force! Collection is a brilliant way to bring all the games in the series together and introduce them to a wider audience. But it could have been much better than what it currently is, boasting more features and content (like the "Hose It Down!" spin-off title) to make it the ultimate collection of the series' history. Nevertheless, it contains 4 really fun puzzle platformer titles which previous fans of the series and even newcomers to the franchise can enjoy playing alike.
