Pure Nintendo's Reviews

Feb 26, 2020

In the end, ELEA: Paradigm Shift looks and feels like a beta release. It has a very unfinished feel with all its problems. It wouldn't even make a good hardware demo for the Switch because of glitches.

Motorcycle Mechanic Simulator has modest ambitions but between awkward controls and repetitive gameplay, it is just too bland and arduous to meet them.

2 / 10.0 - Ships
Nov 26, 2019

Dull, repetitive, boring, and glitchy, are just a few words I'd use to describe Ships. Steer clear of this one

Maybe this game just isn't for me, but Ultra Off-Road 2019: Alaska is not enjoyable and no matter how realistic it strives to be enjoyability is more important. There isn't enough to do that's fun or even looks good enough to be worth $18.99. Even if it goes on sale I'd say it still isn't worth it.

2 / 10.0 - Fatal Fracture
Oct 22, 2019

So, yeah. Fatal Fracture is a bad game. It functions, but it has no reason to be. The process of buying it is actually more engaging than the game itself, and I think I'll just close this review with that.

Despite its cheap price tag, it remains hard to recommend due to its non-intuitive nature without a tutorial. I'd highly suggest that AskAnEnemyStudios considers adding a tutorial section if they want more people to take this game on Switch seriously. Personally, I don't see the game being worth anyone's hard-earned cash, especially for parents looking for a game to pick up for their child.

2 / 10.0 - GoFishing 3D
Jun 26, 2019

Which isn't to say there's anything inherently wrong with GoFishing 3D's simple approach… but that only works when the game is actually good. The devs need to look at the level of quality or lack thereof. Just because a game can coast on mobile doesn't mean it's the right choice for the Switch. GoFishing 3D is just too poor on so many levels. Not to mention it is absurdly priced, making it only worthwhile as a catch and release game to those wanting an overpriced chuckle.

2 / 10.0 - Warparty
Apr 8, 2019

While Warparty is a visually stunning attempt at bringing real-time strategy to the Nintendo Switch, it's lacking in understandable controls and small maps that make the overall experience feel restrictive and monotonous.

Whilst I can't justify anyone purchasing this title, there was effort put in at least… The developer's pride for an Advance Wars style game shined through, which I can appreciate. It has its issues whether it be a cluttered user interface, bad graphics, and similar environments, which can make it easy to overlook this title, and I can't say you'd be missing much. If you are an Advance Wars fan, you might want to try looking elsewhere, that is, if you can't overlook these points of concern (a good starting place might be Chucklefish's latest hit – Wargroove).

2.5 / 10.0 - Spacejacked
Jul 6, 2020

Spacejacked turns the tower defense genre upside down and also manages to toss quite a bit of challenge into the mix. If you're looking to get your butt kicked a few times, Spacejacked is for you.

3 / 10.0 - Hell Pie
Oct 21, 2022

Hell Pie has the beginnings of an entertaining game with a silly sense of humour and classic platformer action, which has sadly been scuppered on the Switch by a glitch that crashes the game as soon as you hit the second level.

3 / 10.0 - Ikai
Apr 12, 2022

Ikai is a first-person psychological horror game that isn't so much scary as it is confounding. It wastes its effectively chilling setting by simply getting you lost in it. You'll be annoyed more often than frightened, confused more often than entertained.

3 / 10.0 - Moto Roader MC
Mar 9, 2022

Moto Roader MC is a poor title. With little in the way of quality updates or polish, this game should've stayed a 30-year relic. Even at its budget price, I'd skip this sloppy update.

3 / 10.0 - Edge of Eternity
Mar 9, 2022

Even if the cloud service it uses was running normally, Edge of Eternity is at best an OK game that fails to deliver on its explosive opening. The combat is fun but loses that fun when you're overwhelmed with enemies in long, drawn-out battles. The open world is interesting but it's simply way too large and empty for you to enjoy exploring. The story starts off great but fizzles out very quickly into a somewhat uninteresting, boring mess. It might be best to look somewhere else for a more enjoyable tactical game.

3 / 10.0 - Poker Club
Dec 16, 2021

Poker Club on Nintendo Switch does a good job at providing a truly immersive poker simulation. Unfortunately the entire package of Poker Club isn't great. The incredibly poor AI will teach you nothing in offline mode and the overall slowness of all action makes for a boring experience. Playing online is even worse, as players can take an impossibly long amount of time on each turn. It's just painfully slow enough that you'd likely be better off just playing poker in real life.

Serenity Forge has had a hand in bringing some of my favorite games to the Nintendo Switch. But Date Night Bowling feels like an unfinished proof of concept and failed to hold my interest. It's a bush league release with much room for improvement. One could argue that it's a better alternative than going to a real-life alley and running the risk of catching COVID. But given that choice, I think I'd rather skip bowling altogether.

Emily Archer and the Curse of Tutankhamun could've been a solid game for genre fans, even with its age. But with so many bugs, there's no way I can recommend this Switch version in its current state. It's a weak port of a game best left on the Nintendo DS.

3 / 10.0 - Freddy Spaghetti
Jan 26, 2021

When it comes to polish, Freddy Spaghetti is molto al dente. Until this game gets a patch to fix its game-breaking bugs, I can't recommend it on the Nintendo Switch, even for only $4.99.

Drawn to Life: Two Realms lacks creativity in the gameplay and is overall a pretty dull experience.

3 / 10.0 - Maze
Nov 13, 2020

Maze didn't live up to my expectations in the slightest. Its aims are too modest, and its execution too lacking.
