The gameplay is accessible and even though the game experience is rather slow-paced, this is in no way an obstacle to enjoy it - quite the contrary, it's where Arise's experience turns out to excel the most with its enveloping qualities, simple but gorgeous worlds and exquisite soundtrack. These are all further topped by this Definitive Edition, that brings a welcome additional content to the Nintendo Switch.

Please, Touch The Artwork tries to go beyond the usual experience of a puzzle game and adapts the artwork of abstract artist Piet Mondrian to a series of challenges that players will have to solve. Simple but remarkable as a principle, this is a game that has no problems whatsoever in delivering an enveloping experience. Fans of puzzle games will appreciate the originality, whereas others will find themselves easily seduced by the relationship between gaming and art.

The third chapter in the series brings the Xenoblade name to heights that were difficult to imagine just a few years ago but which this game's immense world, enthralling plot, cast of characters, myriad of complex but perfectly implemented gameplay mechanics, and gorgeous environment to look at and to listen to help reaching in what amounts to a fantastic opus that can be carried anywhere. Truly an indispensable game on the Nintendo Switch.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is pretty much everything a Monster Hunter Rise player could ask for, with its array of improvements and additions big and small which go from new monsters, new characters, new abilities for the weapons, as well as the Master Rank, the Switch Skills and other elements that players will be delighted to discover. Truly an unmissable expansion that does wonders for an already excellent game.

5 / 10 - Dusk Diver 2
Sep 12, 2022

First and foremost, the cast of playable characters, which is easily one of the best elements in the game and stands out for the best reasons. On the other hand, the changes to its combat make it a lot less engaging due to a low difficulty level that will have players spending a lot of time to defeat an enemy with very little challenge from their weak combat skills. The level design too falls below expectations, as its dungeons are too repetitive and unoriginal, which ends up making it hard to keep the player's attention. There was a lot of potential that unfortunately was not explored and Dusk Diver 2's good ideas don't quite mitigate the rest.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes introduces different elements compared to its predecessor and seems to give us a hybrid experience between the Fire Emblem and Dynasty Warriors series, and a competent game at that too. With its tripartite story lines that will intersect during the game, dynamic combat, as well as fun and motivating gameplay, Three Hopes could benefit from more variety in its missions but overall, what we have here is a very competent and well executed game that combines some of the best elements of the two series it's inspired in.

With a very good control system and ways to guide new players, this new Mario Strikers knows how to integrate everyone. At the same time, there's a disappointing lack o content compared to the other games, and its single player experience feels too limited and quick to explore. The online multiplayer is an absolute joy and the main selling point, even if it's missing functionalities we've seen in other games, but solo players will feel like their experience is too short.

Lamplight City is a point and click adventure that tries a novel approach with regards to its exploration, as the player can take the main events in any order and is allowed to fail specific objectives as the game's very flexible plot will adapt to such choices. In that regard, as well as its attractive art style, Lamplight City is an interesting game. Its puzzles suffer from a level of difficulty that ends up making them too simplistic though, and as such the challenge can get too repetitive but it nonetheless remains a game very much worth exploring.

6 / 10 - Monark
Aug 12, 2022

Monark presents us with an experience that draws inspiration from landmark RPG series while also hinting at a survival horror experience. It does a good job when it comes to its attractive art style, a flexible and smooth character development system, a challenging combat, and its plot with themes related to the human ego. Unfortunately the game's execution stands on the way to delivering a fine experience, and the frequent slowdowns that happen even more often during combat, as well as a simplistic level structure make this a game that's unable to stand up to its peers, even if it should not be disregarded by RPG fans.

The House of the Dead: Remake brings the original game up to today's standards when it comes to its graphics and controllers, and adds a very welcome and addictive game mode, all good reasons to see this as a successful work on the Nintendo Switch. Its technical performance could be better though, with slowdowns taking place in busier moments, especially in multiplayer, and long loading times that will test the players' patience.

Disney Magical World 2: Enchanted Edition is a successful adaptation of a 2015 game for the Nintendo 3DS and despite the different formats, this life simulation game keeps everything that made the original an enjoyable work and gives it a proper Nintendo Switch treatment. With plenty of Disney content to explore and characters to interact with, this game allows players of all ages and skill levels to have fun at their own pace and do as they wish within this recognizable Disney world.

5 / 10 - Itadaki Smash
Jul 15, 2022

It follows the regular conventions that we expect to see and does good when it comes to its character cast, with a reasonable assortment of moves, game modes that propose different rules and a good touch of humour. However those looking for a more in-depth experience might not find it in Itadaki Smash's simplistic development, and the way the hit box is implemented might leave more seasoned players to raise their eyebrows at what's on offer.

7 / 10 - Card Shark
Jul 13, 2022

Card Shark is not a conventional cards or casino game - in fact, it's not even a game that fits with the conventions of that world, Card Shark is rather a story of deceit and intrigue in 18th century France as the player moves through gambling halls using a variety of card tricks against an assortment of adversaries. Featuring a fantastic art style that's reminiscent of bandes dessinées, a captivating plot and characters and a series of tricks to learn, Card Shark would be even better if it was longer and featured more card tricks.

Its gameplay is simple and intuitive but very fun, and it's in combining this with the myriad of tracks and customization options that Mechanic Battle truly becomes a game all racing fans with a Nintendo Switch should pay attention to.

8 / 10 - Wreckfest
Jul 9, 2022

Wreckfest delivers a competent, frantic and fun arcade racing experience coupled with vehicle destroying action, and it all works as good as we expect it to. Thanks to a very good adaptation, the Nintendo Switch runs Wreckfest impeccably well, allowing players to enjoy this varied, vehicle smashing experience for many hours, whether on solo or multiplayer.

Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream is part of the Mysterious Trilogy and it's not difficult to see why it's the best game in the series thanks to the improvements that help shape it into a more modern experience while keeping the spirit of the formula intact. A wide and varied world to explore and with very addictive ways to do so, an engaging and dynamic combat system, and an overall refined experience that makes this a memorable game and a very welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is a masterpiece of beat'em ups. More than just a rework of a classic formula, Shredder's Revenge is everything beat'em up fans could ask for, from its slick and intense combat system to its level design, graphics, music and 6-player co-op. Everything works as it should and what we have here combines the best of its inspirational work with the best ideas for a modern beat'em up. The Nintendo Switch brings it the additional benefit of bringing the game everywhere, for a truly exquisite experience.

Wonder Boy Collection is a 35th anniversary celebration of SEGA's iconic Wonder Boy series and this compilation brings four of its most appreciated games under a competent conversion. Four games might seem short, though, and this compilation would be better if it included more games, but what we have here is a good work with the necessary modern day adaptations to ensure a smooth, enjoyable, nostalgic experience to everyone, as well as to welcome newcomers to the Wonder Boy series.

It may not be a revolution but everything it does, it does it right, from the demanding and well crafted gameplay to the art style, along with the amazing boss fights, humorous dialogues and technical execution. Any fan of platformers as well as of Metroidvania-type of games will be more than satisfied with playing Blast Brigade vs. the Evil Legion of Dr. Cread.

Move or Die: Unleashed does what its title says: if players don't move, they'll die. Simple to learn, simple to look at, but frantic to play, Move or Die: Unleashed consists of several action minigames and while it can be played solo, it's on multiplayer, both local and online, that Move or Die: Unleashed really turns out at its best. It's not a technical achievement but everyone looking for a simple package that can provide hours of crazy fun will find every minute spent with Move or Die: Unleashed to be worth down to each second.
