Nintendo Switch Game Reviews


9.5 Saturday Morning RPG

 

G.I. Joe, Transformers, Thundercats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Looney Tunes, and so many more cartoons are relics of my past, though I still think about most of them till this day. So when a game comes along thats obviously a love letter to those cartoons of old, well, I’m more than interested in it. Saturday Morning RPG for the Nintendo Switch is that game. But is it a good game or just pure ...

 

9.0 Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Fre...

 

Donkey Kong Country is one of Nintendo's longest running franchises, next to Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda, and for good reason. The side scrolling, monkey action has been a staple in homes of Nintendo fans for generations, and while the releases are not as frequent as Mario and Zelda, the quality of the games they do release is fantastic. While we await a new Donkey Kong Country experience on Nintendo ...

 

7.5 Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs

 

Not all strategy rpgs are created equal. Sometimes you get a strategy rpg like Final Fantasy Tactics, other times you get cheap knock-offs, or sometimes you get strategy rpgs that are good but could be so much better. Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs came out for the Nintendo Switch recently. Its a strategy rpg with a mix of adventure and a tiny bit of sim to it. Is it a good game though? Lets take a look! Regalia: ...

 

9.5 Super Daryl Deluxe

 

When I think of the name Daryl, I always tend to think about The Walking Dead. However now, I’ll be thinking about another Daryl too. Super Daryl Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch is a totally odd game. This game could easily become a cult classic on the Switch. People might look at the previews for this game and go “Thats just too odd.” and pass it by. If you’re smart though, you’ll ...

 

9.0 Devious Dungeon

 

As I said in my preview for Devious Dungeon, the game is so addictive that I wasn’t even sure I’d get this review done. Here it is though and you may wonder: is Devious Dungeon as good a game as I said it was in my preview? Is this a game that you must download right now? Please check out my review below to find out my final opinion of Devious Dungeon for Nintendo Switch. The story in Devious ...

 

8.0 Penny Punching Princess

 

There are a lot of fighting games on the Nintendo Switch. There are not, however, many nor any other games that can claim that you can bribe an enemy to go away and/or come back to help you. Money isn’t usually used much in fighting games unless its to buy new equipment rpg style or unlock new stuff. So a game where you can bribe enemies, well, thats gotta be unique right? Enter Penny Punching Princess for ...

 

9.0 Last Day of June

 

What if you lost someone you loved…and then you were given the chance to save them through time travel? Would you do it? How would you save the person you love? This is the premise of Last Day of June for the Nintendo Switch. In this game, you repeat a lot of the same events over and over in order to try and save the main character’s loved one. Is this a good game? Here’s my review of Last ...

 

7.0 Midnight Deluxe

 

The following game is not 36 Fragments of Midnight, even though it does look like that game. Instead, Midnight Deluxe is like a game of golf. You must hit an object into a hole. Sounds simple right? Well, this game gets harder as you go. Is Midnight Deluxe a good game or not? Read my review to find out! Midnight Deluxe has no story or setup. Instead, the player is thrown into a series of environments where they ...

 

8.5 Kirby Star Allies

 

Like Mario and Zelda, Kirby is another of the Nintendo franchises that has refused to quit over the past 25 years, and for good reason: despite the 'easy' nature of these games, they continue to appeal to the broader Nintendo fan base, taking the world of platform video games and delivering it to a wider, more accessible audience. Like the Kirby games before it, Star Allies continues the trend of mixing easy ...

 

7.5 Scribblenauts Showdown

 

The Scribblenauts franchise has been around since the DS era. While this series has never been a best selling attention getting game, it has always been unique and different. And now Scribblenauts has come to the Nintendo Switch with a multiplayer focused game. Is Scibblenauts Showdown as good as the other games in the series? This is a very different sort of Scribblenauts game than previous games in the series. ...

 

6.0 Hollow

 

There are not many first person shooters yet for the Nintendo Switch. The most popular and most well known game in this genre to come to Nintendo’s latest system is Doom. That was a really good port. And now another first person shooter is out for the Switch. The game is called Hollow. Is it as good as or better than Doom? Is it a first person shooter you should play? Read on to find out! Hollow has a ...

 

7.5 Twin Robots: Ultimate Edition

 

Two robots walk into a bar…ok, no bar, but two robots do walk into a sticky situation. One robot is trapped under glass, with a crusher headed his way, and the other is on the otherside and has to get to a big red button to stop the crusher. After the robot under glass is free, the two robots must make it to the end of the level. The game I’m describing is called Twin Robots: Ultimate Edition and ...

 

9.5 Mulaka

 

I wrote about Mulaka previously. I like this game a lot. Do I recommend that you download this game right after reading this review? Read on to find out my final thoughts about Mulaka. Mulaka’s setting and characters are really interesting and different from what we’ve seen from other games on the Nintendo Switch eshop so far. But does all this make for a good story? I’d say the story is ...

 

9.0 Old Man’s Journey

 

When I first saw Old Man’s Journey for the Nintendo Switch, I assumed it was an Adventure game. And while Old Man’s Journey does have a little bit of Adventure, it is most definitly a puzzle game at heart. It is also unlike anything else currently on the Nintendo Switch. Is that a good thing? Will you want to check out Old Man’s Journey? I love Old Man’s Journey’s story. There is no ...

 

9.5 Bayonetta Nintendo Switch

 

Please check out my review-in-progress part 1 and part 2 of Bayonetta. Also you can check out Adam Roffel’s review of Bayonetta 2. What do I think of Bayonetta 1 though? What’s the final vedicit? Is the first Bayonetta a good game? The story in Bayonetta is very hooky. Basically the game has a B-movie style plot. The dialogue is what you’d expect from such a movie too: corny with a lot of ...

 

9.0 Snakebyte Power Pack for Nintendo...

 

One of the downsides of the Nintendo Switch is that when on the go, the battery might not always last as long as you might like it, especially when on long car rides or while flying. This can be remedied by having a nexternal battery and a USB-C cable, but that can become a clunky mess, and add extra items you then need to be accountable for. Enter the Power Pack from Snakebyte, a light weight battery pack that ...

 

8.0 Fe

 

Although it does not happen often - although to be honest, it's become more common each year - every time a moody, charming indie game hits the marketplace on Xbox One, the store on PlayStation, or the Nintendo eShop, the collective video game world tends to lose their mind in excitement and praise. For a reference point, I look back on Unravel and Ori and the Blind Forest, two games that tugged on the emotions ...

 

9.5 Bayonetta 2

 

If you never got around to owning a Wii U - or if you did but never got a chance to play Bayonetta 2 - Nintendo is giving you the ability to play both Bayonetta 1 and 2 ahead of the launch of Bayonetta 3 later this year. While my colleague Daniel has been working on our review of Bayonetta, I've been working on Bayonetta 2. Although it hasn't been that long since we all had the opportunity to play Bayonetta 2 on ...

 

8.0 The Darkside Detective

 

I am a huge point and click Adventure game fan. When I got a review copy of the latest point and click game for the Nintendo Switch, The Darkside Detective, I was really excited. This game looked really good. So is it? The Darkside Detective, much like King’s Quest and Space Quest from the PC era, does not take itself seriously. There are so many jokes in this game. Some of the dialogue in this game is ...

 

9.0 Dragon Quest Builders

 

When Square Enix was looking to develop and publish Dragon Quest Builders on the PS4, it was no secret what was inspiring their motives. Minecraft was, and still is, a huge commercial hit, and while it excels at the building aspects, it falters on story. Other companies have tried to replicate that success with an added story, but with limited success. The latest versions of Harvest Moon instantly come to mind. ...

 

9.0 Steamworld Dig Switch

 

I’ve played the orignal Steamworld Dig on the 3DS and the Wii U. It is an excellent game. And now that excellent game is coming to the Nintendo Switch. Is this version any better than the other versions or is it the exact same game as before? Nothing has changed about Steamworld Dig’s story. Steamworld Dig for the Switch is the same experiance that it was on other consoles. This game has a really ...

 

9.5 Night in the Woods

 

When the credits rolled on Night on the Woods for Nintendo Switch, I watched them, scratched my head, and thought “Yes, but what did that all mean?” I’m still trying to figure this game out. What does that mean for review though? Did I like this game? On the surface, Night in the Woods is all about a girl, who happens to be a cat, who lives in a world of animals and who just came home from ...

 

10 World to the West

 

I remember when World to the West was first announced. I thought the game looked really good then. As time went on, I admit I forgot about World to the West. There has been a lot of games coming to the Switch! Though, when the game was finally on the system, I was very interested in playing it. I was lucky enough to get a review code for this game. I won’t kid around with here. I do feel lucky…

 

7.0 Vesta

 

A little girl may be the last human alive in the world or at least in her part of the world. She has a robot MOM and soon gets a robot helper. She’ll have to solve puzzles in order to get of this place, but what awaits her? Welcome to the world of VESTA, an adventure puzzle game for the Nintendo Switch. The concept is pretty interesting right? How is the actual game though? Lets find out! VESTA has an …

 

8.5 The Escapists 2

 

Have you ever watched the tv show Prison Break and thought “Man, that would make a cool game”? If so, I have the game for you! The Escapists 2 for Nintendo Switch is all about breaking out of prisons. Yes, I said prisons, as in more than one! The Escapists 2 isn’t just an escape game though, its also a prison sim of sorts. With its prison escaping and sim elements, The Escapists 2 is unlike ...

 

9.5 Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

 

Have you ever wished that your brother (or sister) would go away? You have?! You monster! I don’t have a brother or sister, so I’ve never been there. Max, the star of Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, wishes that his brother would go away and his brother is kidnapped by evil! Its your job, as Max, to get that brother back. But do you really want Max’s brother back? Is this really a video game that ...

 

9.5 Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King

 

The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo's greatest franchises. There have been many games that have tried to be just like the Zelda games. Some have been good clones, while others not so much. Its very rare that a game manages to be a homage to Zelda, but also has its own identity. Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King for the Nintendo Switch is a game that will make you think of one of the Zelda franchises best ...

 

7.5 60 Seconds

 

What if the atomic bomb was about to drop on you and everyone you loved? Hopefully you’d have a fallout shelter. And hopefully you’d have some plan as to what (and who) you’d need in that fallout shelter. Welcome to 60 Seconds for Nintendo Switch. You have 60 Seconds, grab what you can, and get to the shelter! 60 Seconds story is pretty simple: the atomic bomb is about to drop. In Classic mode, ...

 

8.0 One More Dungeon

 

I use to play 3D first person dungeon crawlers a lot during the NES era. I also got a chance to play Doom on the PC, even though I wasn’t a PC gamer. Dungeon crawlers back then were simple, yet fun. How would a game like that be now? What if a game like that now decided to go retro and create a totally pixelated first person dungeon crawler? In fact, there’s a game just like that on the Nintendo…

 

8.5 Yooka-Laylee Nintendo Switch

 

3D platformers have been making a major comback. Super Mario Odyssey has been the best of the best, but there are plenty of other cool 3D platformers to play too. The Nintendo Switch has been a good home for platformers and recently another one was added to the eShop: Yooka-Laylee! Is this a good game? Will 3D platformer fans enjoy it? Lets take a look! Yooka-Laylee doesn’t have a good story. The game lets ...
