Whether it’s the new designs, the legendary Pokémon bikes, the new changes to the combat system, the Team Star and Titan Pokémon elements, or the multiplayer, there is a surprising amount of things to love about the new Pokémon games despite their technical flaws. That’s where the game’s biggest problems are: technical issues and downgrades from the previous Switch entries. The core of the game is still just as fun as ever. The game earns a 6/10 due to being a solid entry in the Pokémon series riddled with technical issues.
The Last Of Us Part 2 is a spectacle of storytelling and conveys emotion in a way that few developers understand. This is a game that expectations were set so high that people were always going to be critical of it before it was released. It improved on everything from the first game and added far more emotional depth and makes players question everything throughout. The Last Of Us Part 2 truly is one of this generation’s best games.
While there are other games out there with similar gameplay you could find some a lot less worthy of your time and money. If you’re looking for a crazy team-based co-op game which can be enjoyed by all ages and skill levels then you would be wise to check out this title.
Anthem isn't a terrible game. The core mechanics alone make it something worth at least trying, with the fluid Javelin control movement system and combat options offering up an interesting take on the modern shooter. The problem is that Anthem just isn't a complete package. It's buggy, boring and feels unfinished. It had potential to be another Bioware triumph, and it still could with updates and DLC, but for now, it's a bit like a shiny collectable that looks pretty but really doesn't really do much.
We really love The Crew 2. It’s both an adrenaline pumping foot to the floor racer and a relaxing cruise through the countryside. It's poor graphical detail and lack of progression from the first outing let it down but it's still a game you can sink hours into.
Released in 2013, Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood has been picking up rave reviews since it landed on the Xbox One all those years ago. So popular was it, in fact, that it was eventually developed for the PC and PS4. Now, this bright little puzzle-platform game has made its way to the Switch. But how does it stack up all these years later?
Despite high hopes, Need for Speed Payback comes up short. It might be at home in a 1980s arcade, but we expect more from racing games these days and unfortunately, an extra year in deployment wasn’t enough to save this interaction from franchise fatigued.
