Crusader Kings III’s role-playing elements take the center stage, with your choices leading to a plethora of possible outcomes. The wargame side of things is less engaging, however, as battles are largely a strength in numbers affair. Regardless, whether you play solo or online, there are many hours of gameplay hidden beneath the surface of what is effectively a Medieval Sims game.
Despite its grindy economy system, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate offers hours of engaging content, including the meaty and enticing story mode. While not quite as deep as some of the Japanese fighters out there, the new additions to the combat make it a joy and thrill to play.
Dragon Ball Z Kakarot is a solid action game with an enjoyable customization system and fun battles. It lacks in innovation with the story repeating events from the popular anime, but this is merely a design decision and has no bearing on the overall quality of the product.
Yu Suzuki might not have delivered a perfect continuation of Ryo Hazuki's journey but the work he has done in making Shenmue III is admirable. It is a good game once you dig underneath it, warts and all, especially considering the expectations of making this sequel after all these years.
The Alliance Alive has been given a second chance with this HD remaster. It is another great addition to the existing JRPG library of the Nintendo Switch. It offers multiple characters with colorful personalities and a battle system that feels like a spiritual successor to the SaGa series.
Indivisible has a great art style and fun exploration elements. Its combat and gameplay are inspired by Valkyrie Profile and while the game is fun to play, the pacing of the story is slow and it doesn't feel as engaging. It is still an extremely gorgeous looking game that is easy to recommend for fans of the RPG or Metroidvania genre.
