10 / 10 - Metroid Dread
Oct 30, 2021

Metroid Dread had a big responsibility ahead but once we start playing it, we realize that not only does it tick all the boxes, it does so with exceptional gusto. What we have here is a masterfully done work that brings Metroid up to today's standards while remaining loyal to its classic formula, and it does so at every single level, from its beautiful locations to its merciless difficulty, long-lasting lifespan, in-depth plot, slick and sharp performance, and frantic combat, Metroid Dread is an essential classic. The Nintendo Switch is a richer console for having it in its 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.

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.

Astalon: Tears of the Earth brings us a Metroidvania-type where the players will be exploring a tower with three different characters, with the need to think about which character to use according to the obstacles. For a simple-looking game, Astalon is amazingly varied when it comes to level design and enemies, which works great in its favour to present us with an adventure that's enjoyable and worthy of our attention.

8 / 10 - Eastward
Sep 24, 2021

Eastward is a gorgeous looking adventure game that features a great mechanic of synergy-building between characters during fights and puzzle-solving, and a welcoming combat system. Its level design is mostly simple, but the settings look so beautiful it's worth just to marvel at the art style. While there are some performance issues on a television screen when there's a lot of characters on display at the same time and there's a lot of backtracking involved, Eastward is a very interesting and captivating experience for anyone looking for a good adventure game.

In this new game, the combat system has been slightly tweaked and the downloadable content in the original game is included. Overall, most of the other elements are kept intact and therefore, for longtime fans of the series this is a fun addition to their Nintendo Switch library.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a more ambitious effort than its predecessor and it brings us a vast, open world, with a gorgeous art style, a great combat system, heavy emphasis on the plot and a great variety of creatures to capture. The experience is far from perfect, though, as its technical performance doesn't always go as expected. On top of that, the game world feels rather empty, despite this being more ambitious than the first game. Regardless of that, it's a very welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch offer on monster capture games.

8 / 10 - Smelter
Oct 13, 2021

Smelter bears the true marks of a tribute to the 16-bit era, and combines elements of both platforming action and real time strategy with a result that's nothing short of a dignified successor to its sources of inspiration. The interaction between the platforming and the strategy dimensions is very well implemented, and its exploration mechanics work like a charm. This is beyond doubt a work that's worth getting into.

8 / 10 - Inked
Nov 9, 2021

Inked: A Tale of Love is a moving, if rather short, puzzle adventure that does not attempt to revolutionize the experience but delivers a lovely time through very well designed levels and a unique visual world. The difficulty does not stand out, as the purpose is not to present players with a painstaking challenge, but the way this relaxing and touching experience is implemented is nothing short of remarkable. Pity for its very short length.

8 / 10 - Gynoug
Nov 18, 2021

Gynoug is not one of the most common 16-bit games that we see getting a re-release these days, but this 30-year-old 2D shooter deserves to be more known among today's gamers. With the typical punishing difficulty of its time and very packed scenarios that will keep the players extremely busy, Gynoug also comes with the usual options to recreate an experience as close to the original as possible.
