In this unusual take to stealth action, the players will have to clean up crime scenes after the gruesome actions occur but before the law can catch them. With its marvelous art style and sountrack, and an accessible and fun experience, Serial Cleaners' biggest flaws are its rather easy difficulty for experienced players and repetitiveness that settles in after a couple of hours, but which can be averted by playing in short sessions.

9 / 10 - Splatoon 3
Nov 17, 2022

Splatoon 3 represents a step forward in the series. It takes everything that made the previous two games memorable and delivers it in slicker, more fluid and more dynamic ways. It also opens more possibilities for solo gaming while maintaining the rich and lively online experience. Truly the best treatment the Splatoon series could get, its third chapter is another landmark in the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

Oddworld: Soulstorm Oddtimized Edition brings the latest chapter in the Oddworld series to the Nintendo Switch and with it come the outstanding, immersive plot, a wide world to explore and a very demanding series of puzzles and obstacles to overcome in a very fitting way with the Oddworld name. At the same time, some of its underlying issues regarding more frustrating points such as the use of trial and error brought on by some instances of level design have not been fully dealt with, but overall this is a very welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue and one that is certain to appeal to Oddworld fans.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac brings back the 1999 original and successfully adapts its visual world as well as control mechanics to our day, thus making a great effort at modernizing Pac-Man's platformer effort. While these are very welcome steps the game's foundations remain steeped in their time and as such, the levels are rather similar and with no links between them, while the camera is somewhat limited, in elements that are reminiscent of the original game's era. All in all, Re-Pac is a fun if by no means profound experience that will please fans of one of gaming's most iconic characters and of 1990s platformers.

4 / 10 - One True Hero
Oct 28, 2022

The game features intuitive gameplay mechanics and a charming self-deprecating humour that mocks the genre's most common clichés. That does not suffice, however, as One True Hero is unfortunately affected by a series of flaws and execution problems with regards to its graphics and overall experience, as well as by an uninspired level design. Perhaps a future update can correct its most pressing issues but as it is, One True Hero is a game with good ideas tarnished by a frustrating execution.

Cursed to Golf is a fun and surprising game that brings together golf, platforms, puzzles, and roguelike elements. If this seems very unlikely, it all works and fits together nicely, with a very creative approach to a comically macabre plot, a high difficulty level that makes players think carefully about each stroke, and a mechanic that changes the properties of the ball. A lovely piece of gaming that's more than welcome to the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments brings the world's most famous detective to the Nintendo Switch in an enveloping, thrilling game that gives the player a great amount of freedom to set out, gather elements and solve the cases at hand. While the Nintendo Switch has its graphical limits and the character's control doesn't always feel as natural as it should, the core of the gameplay experience is spot-on, and the game's structure and plot do a marvelous work at integrating the player in the world of Sherlock Holmes.

LEGO Bricktales brings the LEGO building experience to a game format, and one that's accessible and welcoming to a wide segment of the audience. While the game does feature a structuring plot and some exploration, it's the building that's the star here, and LEGO Bricktales does a good job at presenting a fun building challenge that's worthy of the LEGO name and fame.

OMNO captures the player's attention with its charming art style and welcomes everyone with a gameplay that's simple and accessible. While not a monumental game for those who need something hard and intense, OMNO is certain to accommodate anyone who enjoys to take their time and use their creativity to explore the world around them.

The third chapter in the Azure Striker Gunvolt series takes few risks with its formula and mostly uses familiar elements that most players will recognize. This does not mean there aren't any new features, and the way the two main characters are used shows just that. When it comes to most of its experience though, it's very reminiscent of its preceding chapters, and that can only be good when it comes to frantic gameplay and an exquisite game world. Pity for the difficulty level though, as Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 really is as simple and accessible as it can be.

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.
