Nintendo Switch Game Reviews


8.5 Plantera Deluxe

 

I reviewed Plantera on the Wii U and 3DS. I really liked the game. And now Plantera Deluxe is on the Nintendo Switch. Is this game any different from the Wii U and 3DS versions? Should you buy this game again if you already have it? I’ll answer these questions in my review of Planetera Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. Plantera Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch is basically the same game that was on the Wii U. ...

 

8.5 Worms W.M.D

 

Worms W.M.D is an artillery strategy game in the Worms series; it features gameplay style closer to Worms Armageddon than subsequent installments, while adding brand new features from usable vehicles such as tanks to buildings that the worms can enter. But does that make this Nintendo Switch version worth the $30 price tag , let’s discuss! Original Review written by FNCWill for GamesReviews.com, updated with ...

 

9.0 Portal Knights

 

Once upon a time, there was a land in trouble and a brave hero went out to save it. He (or she) just had their wits and crafting tools. The main goal: defeat the enemies, go through portals and discover whats next. Welcome to Portal Knights for the Nintendo Switch. Portal Knights has a story that is briefly introduced at the beginning of the game, but its not really that important to the overall game. Portal ...

 

8.5 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

 

When we reviewed the first LEGO Marvel Super Heroes title, we loved every moment of it, and stated that if we had to knock it somewhere, it was that we wanted more. And now we have it, thanks to the release of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 on the Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. We took a peek at this title on Nintendo's hit platform, and thoroughly enjoyed our time with it. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a love ...

 

9.5 Stick It to the Man

 

Stick It to the Man is a really weird game. I first played this game on the Wii U and while I liked it alot, I also thought it was one of the strangest games I had ever played. Not everybody will like it. Stick It to the Man is for people who have an odd sense of humor and like stuff like Tim Burton movies and Bryan Fuller tv shows. And now Stick It to the Man is on the Nintendo Switch. Is the game as good on ...

 

9.0 Skyrim Gets A Second Wind on Nint...

 

With the launch of the Xbox One X recently, the talk has been all about graphics. And while that is important - and definitely appreciated when playing the popular Xbox games in 4K - there is something that should be said about portability and stability, versus graphical power. I'll be the first to say that if I have to take a minor graphical hit to take my favorite games on the go with the Nintendo Switch, I'm ...

 

9.0 Doom Nintendo Switch

 

Doom is a game that no one would have ever guessed would come to the Nintendo Switch. It was not long ago that we found out that the game was coming and it was a total surprise. A mature first person shooter for Nintendo Switch?! Wow! And now Doom is out and I’ve played it. Is Doom a good game on the Nintendo Switch? The Story Doom’s story isn’t bad but its not that good either. The story ...

 

9.5 Morphite

 

Metroid Prime 4 is in development for the Nintendo Switch right now. It’ll probably be awhile before that game is out. Meanwhile, where should a gamer go to get some first person exploration fun? The solution to this question is Morphite for Nintendo Switch. The story in Morphite is really good. The main character is just trying to survive and get by and then she is roped into a quest to solve some ...

 

7.5 Poi Explorer Edition

 

Super Mario 64 reinvented a genre by creating a very open world 3D platformer. Gamers had never seen a platformer so big and fully explorable. Nintendo had created something new and interesting with the Mario franchise. Flash-forward to the Nintendo Switch and all the new 3D platformers want to be like Mario 64. Take, for instance, Poi Explorer Edition, which just came out for the Switch. There is a lot of Mario ...

 

8.5 Farming Simulator Nintendo Switch...

 

If you don’t think farming would make a great simulation title, than think again. Although very few people would actually want to be a farmer in every day life, there are tons of people who would love to simulate this experience in a video game. The long running Farming Simulator franchise is back with another installment which is bigger and better than previous titles. Giants Software did an excellent job ...

 

9.0 Fire Emblem Warriors

 

Please check out part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4 of my week long coverage of Fire Emblem Warriors. Today, I want to give you my final review of the game. What did I think of Fire Warriors? Is it a great tribute to the Fire Emblem franchise? Will fans and non-fans alike embrace the game? Lets find out! Fire Emblem Warrior’s story is very much the same type of story we’ve seen in previous games of ...

 

6.0 Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure

 

What if there were no people in the world? What if the world was made of talking boxes? And what if those boxes sent off some newbie box to stop some crazy boxes that were running amok? This is the premise of a game called Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure and its for the Nintendo Switch! Is this a good game, an alright game, or should it be boxed up and put outside with the trash? The story for Unbox: ...

 

10 Super Mario Odyssey

 

Every Nintendo Generation as of late has had an epic Super Mario adventure - 2 on the Wii! - so when Nintendo announces a Mario title, you assume it's the only one you'll get in the generation. Super Mario 64 on Nintendo 64, Super Mario Sunshine on GameCube, a pair of Super Mario Galaxy titles on Wii, Super Mario 3D World on Wii U, and now the pinnacle of them all: Super Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch. Odyssey ...

 

9.0 The Flame in the Flood

 

Do you ever feel like going on an adventure? You know, just pack your bags and go somewhere without a desination. Of course, in real life, taking an adventure requires time and money. Thats why if you can't go on a real adventure, then you can always find one in a video game. It may not feel as real, but sometimes a video game comes along thats all about the adventure-surviving, finding stuff, and not dying of ...

 

9.0 Yono and the Celestial Elephants

 

You are an elephant and your name is Yono. You came from the sky and you are here to help people. This is the basic premise of Yono and the Celestial Elephants for Nintendo Switch. Yono is cute, without a doubt, but is it a good game too? Yono and the Celestial Elephants put gameplay above story for the most part, but I still think the game’s story was pretty good overall. I thought the ending to the game ...

 

7.0 Squareboy VS. Bullies: Arena Edit...

 

I remember playing games like Double Dragon and Spider-man Maximum Carnage when I was younger. I wasn't that big on Double Dragon but liked the Spider-man game a lot. They were both pretty basic, walking left to right beat 'em ups. You don't see these types games too often anymore. Enter Squareboy VS. Bullies: Arena Edition for Nintendo Switch

 

8.5 Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

 

Although wildly popular, I've never been a huge fan of the Dragonball Universe nor do I have an affinity for fighting games. That being said, Dragonball Xenoverse 2 does everything a little bit different, making it the ideal game for long time fans and new players. While jumping into franchises with years and years of history is often a daunting task, the story and flow of Xenoverse 2 is the perfect combination ...

 

9.0 Earth Atlantis

 

What do you get when you mix a “space shooter” with an undersea Metroidvania? If you answered Earth Atlantis, then you’re right! In this shooter, you control a submarine that investigates the ocean for monsters big and small. There’s a lot of shooting and a lot of exploration in this game too. Sounds like an interesting mix right? Well, you’ll just have to read my review to find out ...

 

8.5 One Piece: Unlimited World Red De...

 

I'm not a fan of Anime. I've spoken about my dislike of Pokemon before but generally, I'm not a big fan of the manga/anime genre overall. And yet, I decided I wanted to review One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition because I thought the gameplay looked interesting.

 

8.0 The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game...

 

LEGO games have been around for a long time, and have been released on almost every modern video game system imaginable, from the iPhone to the Xbox One, and everything in between. When the Nintendo Switch launched in March of 2017, everyone knew it would be the perfect system for Travelers Tales LEGO game, and so far, they haven't disappointed with the release of LEGO Worlds, and now, the LEGO Ninjago Movie ...

 

9.5 Steamworld Dig 2

 

Image & Form are one of the best Indie developers that create games for Nintendo Systems. So when they announced Steamworld Dig 2 for Nintendo Switch, I had no doubt that the game would be good. I just had to wonder how good it would be? Would the game be better than Steamworld Dig? Would it be better than Steamworld Heist? Better than both?

 

8.5 Thimbleweed Park

 

If you’ve ever played Manic Mansion or Monkey Island or King’s Quest or any number of Adventure games and loved them, then boy do I have a new Switch game for you! Let me take you to Thimbleweed Park. Come on now. Nobody here bites, not even that cursing clown… I love Thimbleweed Park’s story. It is so crazy, out there, and utterly delightful. If you like Adventure games at all, you will ...

 

10 Rayman Legends Definitive Edition...

 

I never played the full Rayman Legends game on the Wii U. I played the demo, but I just never got around to playing the full game. Then Ubisoft sent us a review code for this game and our editor-in-chief, Adam Roffel, decided I should do the review.

 

7.0 36 Fragments of Midnight

 

Indie developers are already bringing a wide range of their titles to the Nintendo Switch eshop. We have platformers, action games, puzzle games, and more! 36 Fragments of Midnight adds to that collection of games by bringing a simple, low budget puzzle-platformer to the Switch.

 

8.5 Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pa...

 

Do you like Mega Man? Do you like Japanese (anime) style action-platformers? Then you may be interested in Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack for the Nintendo Switch. Azure contains two games, Azure Striker Gunvolt and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2.

 

Pokken Tournament DX

 

Pokken Tournament was a much loved game on the Nintendo Wii U, but not one that many people bought into and spent much time with. Trying to bank on the success of the arcade cabinets in Japan, Nintendo made the decision to bring the game to consoles, with much success in Japan, and moderate success in North America. With a subsequent DX release on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo is looking to expand the player base ...

 

9.0 Jackbox Party Pack 1 & 2 on ...

 

Jackbox Party is a phenomenally entertaining game on console, and if you haven't had the pleasure of playing any of the packs yet, perhaps you will jump at yet another opportunity on yet another console: the Nintendo Switch. If you are unfamiliar with Jackbox Party, it is a collection of games that you can play with friends, using the console and TV as your 'hub' and your smartphones or tablets as your ...

 

9.5 The Bridge

 

I love puzzle games. I think its a great genre. Its especially great when a puzzle game comes along that makes you think and challenges you. The Bridge for Nintendo Switch is such a puzzle game.

 

7.0 League of Evil

 

Mission Log. 8/31/2017. The League of Evil have sent their scientists out to cause trouble. I have been dispatched to elimiate them by any means neccessary. I prefer my fists. The League of Evil will not win. With my Nintendo Switch in hand, I’ll take them down and then go out for a beer. League of Evil’s story is pretty simple, but the addition of humor helps it a bit. Its a very dry humor, so its ...

 

9.0 Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle

 

The thought of Nintendo handing over it's properties to another company seemed pretty unlikely to ever happen, and fans of the company have often been divided on whether or not Nintendo should lax their stringent rules on the use of their characters and licence them out. Although we were all unaware, Nintendo made that decision back in 2014 to allow Ubisoft the right to create a crossover title with their ...
