Top Critic Average
If you consider the fairly sparse selection of FPS titles on the Switch, Hypercharge: Unboxed is a genuinely tempting prospect, boasting solid gameplay that is an absolute blast with friends. There are a few issues with the gameplay that may need addressing with patches, and as a whole the game feels like a bit of a walk in the park for the most part, but otherwise it's an impressive, unique title that you'd do well to check out.
Hypercharge: Unboxed is a fun and unique addition to the small library of shooters already on the Nintendo Switch. Digital Cybercherries' debut title on the platform offers fun and addictive wave-based shooter gameplay for all ages. With the game's cute art style and smooth performance, it is hard to go wrong with picking up a content-filled game like this. Especially one that has a lower than usual price-tag of $19.99.
Hypercharge Unboxed is finely-tuned with a diverse amount of content for a small-scale game.
Actually, it is one I look forward to revisiting as time goes on. It is extremely promising, but it isn't quite there yet. However, if you have a group of friends you can reliably play with and you're willing to trudge through the rough spots, there is certainly plenty of content to enjoy here. It also happens to somehow be one of the most visually impressive games I've played on Switch.
Even though there are plenty of online multiplayer games out there, Hypercharge Unboxed is a solid enough offering to be worth playing. The fact that you play as toys is something that the whole family can enjoy, too.
With deep character customization, excellent tower defense gameplay, and customization that allows you to play how you want, Hypercharge: Unboxed is the FPS game that relives your childhood fantasy of toys coming to life.
This isn’t your typical shooter! Instead of fighting in a war-torn country or against alien civilisation, you’re fighting amongst chairs, beds, kids toys and furniture within a massive house. You’re a toy… well, actually you’re an action figure with the single goal to protect multiple strange coloured cores known as hyper-cores that are located around each environment.
