I believe that fans of the series will absolutely love having this reboot in their collection. However, I was not really a fan of how the ninjas walk in a single straight path. Some of the enemies, specifically bosses and the front armored robot, are incredibly obnoxious considering how the ninjas are able to move. Do not get me wrong though, it is amazing that the series has been revived and looks and sounds spectacular. The price point is fair but definitely, a must get if ever on sale. You can also get this physically and looks to be a beauty to have in your collection. Overall this a worthwhile buy for those who are established fans of the beat em up genre.
If you’re in need of some Star Wars action then Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast will do the job but don’t expect much from it. Previous fans of the game may be able to overlook the outdated gameplay and countless technical issues, but newer players will most likely have a hard time feeling enthralled with this game. For now, it feels like the release of a great Star Wars game to take on the go is in a galaxy far far away.
Cyber Protocol is an incredibly entertaining Cyberpunk style game that I recommend you try out. The arcade-like gameplay is very fun and there’s tons of content, between the game’s 100 missions and unlockable content. The implementation of online leaderboards was also a great addition so you can compete with others online. I did get a bit frustrated with some of the more difficult levels, however, they didn’t ruin my experience. Throw in the 4-player local play, killer tunes, and unlockable avatars and you have a really great Nintendo Switch exclusive that’s worth your time.
A Knight’s Quest is still an enjoyable adventure, but the bland magic and item system along with the abundance of technical issues makes me hesitant to recommend the game. I found the game’s core gameplay of combat, platforming, and puzzle-solving to be quite well done and the inclusion of the interesting grinding mechanic still makes A Knight’s Quest worth trying out. The story’s humor is mostly enjoyable, but at times comes across like the game’s trying too hard. If you can look past these issues and focus on the core gameplay you’ll most likely find some enjoyment with this title, but don’t go in expecting a perfect adventure.
Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns is the RPG that I didn’t know how badly I needed it on Nintendo Switch until now. The match 3 gameplay mixed with RPG elements is superbly done and with the diversity among classes and skills, you really get to customize your character how you want to. Visually, the game looks fantastic and while some of the enemy designs do feel plain that doesn’t stop the rest of the game from looking gorgeous. The RNG elements along with the lengthy battles do hold Puzzle Quest back from being the perfect RPG, but nevertheless, this is definitely worth picking up for any RPG fans collection. There are hours upon hours of content here and I know I’ll be coming back to Puzzle Quest for quite some time.
Overall the gameplay is enjoyable and as frightening as always, although the visuals are starting to become a bit dated. With Justine being much shorter then the others I feel the asking price for the Amnesia Collection is a bit too high. The first and third game are really enjoyable and if the collection goes on sale I would definitely recommend picking it up then.
If you are new to the game or don’t own any other consoles, I feel this should be a must-own and a vital component to your collection. Dead By Daylight has a solid community, and it really shows. I rarely had a long wait for a game, as either killer or survivor.
From a presentation’s standpoint, Neon Drive checks all the right boxes. The neon visual design is absolutely gorgeous and is accompanied by a stellar soundtrack. Sadly, the core gameplay is frustrating and isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Neon Drive is certainly an example of style over substance.
Newt one has an interesting gameplay premise, regretfully that's all it ends up becoming. You're sure to entertain yourself for a while with the neat power-ups and collection of achievements to unlock. However, the game gets to be a bit too repetitive and the controls are a bit too loose to get full enjoyment from. Newt One's a great game if you want something relaxing and colorful, but it won't satisfy all fans of the platformer genre.
Neo Cab is a great interactive adventure that emphasizes on forming relationships. Every decision feels important in Neo Cab and will impact the story and your relationship with others. Although the main campaign is only about 3 hours, Neo Cab is a great game to replay and see how different conversations and actions can affect the main story. Neo Cab’s memorable characters and futuristic vibe makes it a very fun and unique experience. Although some minor technical issues and limited soundtrack hurt the overall polish of the game, Neo Cab’s great story, characters, and emotion managing mechanic keep it fun. It also gives a realistic view of what society could become if it continues to prioritize technology over everything else.
