While the story in Unruly Heroes is pretty forgettable the solid platforming, creative level design, and downright gorgeous visuals are worth the price of admission on this one. It won’t wow you with its combat system but the rest of the package just might. This should be on the to-play list for anyone who enjoys platformers.
[Observation] tells a captivating, sci-fi story that kept me playing from start to finish in one sitting. Getting to experience it from the view of a space station AI was different from what many other games out there offer and it avoids letting it’s exploratory gameplay grow stale by mixing in interesting and fun puzzle gameplay.
Black Paradox is a shmup that looks great, sounds great, and plays great but doesn’t reward great. The roguelike elements can really feel unfair when you get stuck with useless weapons and the grind to increase your ships abilities feels a bit unbalanced. It’s a good thing that I found the gameplay to be so fun and addictive though as it kept me playing despite those concerns.
All-in-all, the game is one I would recommend to any simulation fan – though I would advise against a purchase if you’re usually not a fan of the genre – that being said, it is one of the more enjoyable titles available.
While Table Top Racing: World Tour Nitro Edition introduces new content not present on other platforms, it still comes short of feeling like a good racer. The sense of speed isn’t there, the tracks are inspired but get dull fast & the core gameplay just isn’t fun.
I think the most impressive thing about Ghost Giant to me is that this is Zoink Games first swing at making a VR game and they hit it out of the park on the first try. The narrative here is very strong and many of the scenes in the game hit me on an emotional level.
Sacrifice for Redemption offers some very interesting boss fights and introduces an innovative new concept through its "sacrifice" theme, causing you to grow weaker instead of stronger as you progress. While your character may end the game as a weaker version of himself, you'll come out as a stronger player. Only a few unfortunate technical issues hamper it becoming a true indie gem, but in the end, I have no regrets about spending time with this challenging title.
Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice is an incredible audiovisual experience, regardless of the platform you are playing it on. While in handheld mode the level of immersion might be somewhat reduced, the audio is where it really counts and that aspect is every bit as good on the Switch as on the more powerful consoles. If you have yet to play this game, listen to the voices in your head and pick this up, you won't be disappointed!
