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.

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.

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.

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.

8 / 10 - Slipstream
Jun 13, 2022

Slipstream presents itself as an assumed tribute to driving retro classics and that's what the game's fantastic visual world aims at achieving. With a gameplay that's both addictive and demanding, a great variety of game modes to choose from, customization options and an experience that hits the right spot when it comes to driving classics, Slipstream could be even better if its multiplayer mode went beyond local and included an online component as well.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is rather unexpected in the sense that it's a prequel of a game that hasn't been released yet, but that doesn't prevent it from having a great plot and outstanding characters. It does take its time to gather pace, however, which requires some patience until the game shows all its value, but the most committed players will be duly rewarded with Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising until the next game arrives.

5 / 10 - Bugsnax
Jun 6, 2022

Bugsnax is a colourful and visually appealing game that boasts an interesting concept. However the way its ideas are implemented and the technical issues that need to be addressed end up harming Bugsnax more than they should. Adding to that some rather frustrating control problems and a feeling of repetitiveness that becomes apparent too early, and the experience of Bugsnax falls below the threshold of a remarkable adventure game.

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers goes under a visual renovation and presents a new aesthetic that will help it becoming more popular with a wider audience. The gameplay experience remains the same compared to the previous EDF games, improved even, it can be said. At the same time, EDF's issues with performance have not made a lot of progress and the game's lack of a local co-op multiplayer that requires only one Nintendo Switch will make this a less attractive game for those looking for this kind of experience, especially given its relatively high price.

The Cruel King and the Great Hero brings us an RPG with a charming and gorgeous art style, coupled with a plot that's very appealing and a gameplay that's designed to be accessible for players less versed in this kind of games. At the same time, more experienced players might feel put off by the game's accessibility and rather slow pace, but The Cruel King and the Great Hero puts up a good effort that would only benefit from a more in-depth combat system and faster pacing.

7 / 10 - Chocobo GP
May 7, 2022

Chocobo GP marks the return of racing games based on these beloved Final Fantasy characters and this is nothing short of a very welcome new effort in this line, with a large and varied cast, as well as an immense amount of content to unlock. The gameplay is fairly simple and accessible, the main campaign acts as a great motivator to keep us going and the online multiplayer is a charm. Chocobo GP is a game that will keep its players around the screen for many fun hours.
