The Switch Effect's Reviews

Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is a lot of fun and it ended up being exactly what I was hoping for.

1.5 / 5.0 - Unturned
Apr 23, 2024

Unfortunately it’s just not enough to warrant the price tag. Unturned is 100 percent a game that you should check out but it’s not worth the $25 for the Switch version. If you want to play it, just get on Steam and download the game for free. It’s a great game but not a great game on the Switch.

It’s a really good adaptation of the anime and it’s original content that’s not seen in the anime so it’s the equivalent of seeing a few extra episodes. This game feels like an actual extension of the anime and would serve as a great collectible for an anime or game fan if you get the physical copy.

3.5 / 5.0 - Mugen Souls
Apr 17, 2024

Mugen Souls didn’t get good reviews back in the day and I’m not too sure it’ll get them nowadays either. It’s for the most part mediocre RPG that’s lifted up by a mixed bag of presentation and it’s practically porn like minigames. Still, it’s nice to see it not stuck on a PS3 anymore if you want it physically.

A cute bite sized platformer that was definitely worth my afternoon’s time. The cute graphics didn’t hurt either.

Block Breaking games are one of those tried true genres that just immediately make my neurons activate. I’m always down to play them. I’m inclined to try the original Dungeonoid out now too. Which despite this being a sequel to, is a bit of a different style, which I dig.

With puzzle games like this, it’s a very much “you get what you see” situation. Which isn’t a mad thing. At all. But it does make for a bit of a struggle to say why one should play this if they aren’t a fan of either Story of Seasons or Nonograms. Because this is for either of those. Or someone like me, who’s both.

s Jeff Minter a madman? Probably, but in an endearing way. Needless to say, this set got me interested in playing his modern work, and I did enjoy finding the diamonds in the rough of early programming and game dev.

I’ve seen what the game looks like on the 3DS and blowing that up to fit the bigger Switch screen or a TV probably wouldn’t look that good without some tweaking. Fortunately FuRyu did a great job with making sure that the game looked as good as it could on the Switch.

4.5 / 5.0 - Rainbow Moon
Mar 15, 2024

Rainbow Moon is a perfect example of an old-school RPG that deserves to be played on the Switch. It’s a really solid game but the combination of price and content puts it over the edge.

If you’re a fan of these songs or just like rhythm games in general, you will get some enjoyment out of Invector. The bugs and glitches will ruin a round or two here and there and you might not like all the songs but for $25 there’s a decent amount of content for a game that’s pretty engaging.

I don’t know why Steel Empire is the game that keeps getting ported, remade, re-released, whatever. Don’t care why either, it’s a good game and if this gets more people to play it, so be it.

I still have issues with Dual Destinies’ handling of returning characters, but in my old age, I find myself caring less and less. These games look good, they play good, and having all three together in HD with all the amenities, it’s perfect.

3 / 5.0 - nGolf
Jan 20, 2024

Do I recommend nGolf? I do, but not at that ridiculous price tag. You’ll be lucky if you can get two hours of gameplay and then never play.

My Time at Sandrock is not a bad game at all but the Switch version suffers a lot because of the technical issues.

Turnip Boy Robs a Bank is nothing like its predecessor as it has its timer mechanism and isn’t as “open-world” but it’s a really fast paced game with a lot of humor that you should consider picking up.

If you love the entire package of story, farming, combat, exploration, and characters, you could spend 50 to 70 hours playing the main game before even getting to the 11 Newlywed Mode chapters.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet along with their DLC’s are such an amazing and wonderful action packed experience that it’s easy to ignore the performance issues that most players would complain about.

3.5 / 5.0 - Born of Bread
Dec 14, 2023

The two strongest points of Born of Bread for me were the visuals and sound. I really liked the aesthetic of the 2.5D style, they really stood out to me and made me think back to the Paper Mario and South Park games.
