Nintendo Switch Game Reviews


5.5 Aery – Dreamscape

 

Fly through people’s deepest desires as a bird. And, no, Aery – Dreamscape isn’t an adult game. Because it turns out everybody’s deepest desires are things like “be a pirate”, “visit the moon” or “get out in nature”. Not a single level begins with the phrase “hey, you know that girl from Friends?” Maybe that would have been a better game – its not for me to judge – but it would have been a ...

 

7.0 Big Brain Academy: Brain Vs. Brai...

 

Are you ready to train your brain? Nintendo has brought a brand-new brain training game to the Switch: Big Brain Academy: Brain Vs. Brain! Is it any good? Here's our review! School might be out soon, but Nintendo is keeping the learning going throughout the holidays!

 

7.0 Beyond a Steel Sky

 

27 years later we get a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky…The original came out in the hay day of point and click adventure games like Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, and Broken Sword. As an “old” man, these types of games have always had a soft spot in my heart. I do recall playing the original but it’s been a LONG time since I’ve thought about this game. Luckily you aren’t missing much in picking up the ...

 

9.0 New to the Series: Pokémon Brill...

 

Was Pokémon Brilliant Diamond a good place to start? How difficult was the game? Will it hook you on the series? Here is our review of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond!

 

7.5 Unpacking

 

In a gaming landscape where bigger is better, Unpacking is something else entirely. There are no cutscenes, no sob story, no need to pretend your charming protagonist isn’t a multiple murderer. There’s just a lot of boxes. A LOT of boxes. And it’s your job to empty all those boxes. Doing so is simple, and there’s hardly any rules to where you can put something (at least up to a point). ...

 

8.5 Mario Party Superstars

 

Mario Party Superstars is now out for the Nintendo Switch. Is it a fun game? How are the graphics? Is the online multiplayer worth checking out? Here is our review of Mario Party Superstars for the Nintendo Switch!

 

8.0 Guardians of the Galaxy

 

You are Star-Lord, so nothing’s off-limits with your bold combat style, from Element Blasters and jet boot-powered dropkicks to tag-team beat-downs. With the Guardians fighting at your side, call the shots and overwhelm your opponents with signature attacks. Meanwhile, the consequences of your decisions will range from light-hearted to downright unexpected as your journey unfolds. Your newly-formed band of ...

 

9.5 Metroid Dread

 

Metroid Dread is the first, brand new 2D Metroid we've seen since the Gameboy Advance. Is Dread any good? What will long time fans think? What will new fans think? Here is our review of Metroid Dread for the Nintendo Switch!

 

7.0 RiMS Racing

 

I’ve never played a racing game like RiMS Racing, and its core unique mechanic is both the thing that makes the game stand out, and is also the thing that sometimes make the game tedious to progress through. RiMS Racing is the newest motorcycle racing sim from French publisher Nacon and first-time developer RaceWard, from Italy. The core concept of the game is that it’s part racing sim, part mechanic sim. ...

 

7.0 Embr

 

What if your Uber Eats driver had to save you from a house fire? Fight fires for fun and profit in this unpredictable and frantic multiplayer game. Team up with friends, take on daily challenges, and climb to the top of the corporate firefighting ladder. More than one way to become a hero! Embr has you take on the role of a firefighter, but certainly not in the traditional sense. You see in the world of Embr we ...

 

9.5 Tails of Iron

 

Tails of Iron isn't Animal Crossing. It isn't a cute, cozy experience about talking rats. Instead, it's a dark, grim fairy tale with "talking" rats. While the premise of building a game around rats might just conjure up thoughts of the plague, we can assure you it's much more than that. These aren't gross vile rats, but loveable, dedicated, and strong creatures. But, is it a good game? Here is our review of ...

 

8.0 Warioware: Get It Together!

 

WarioWare has always been one of Nintendo's weirdest games. And the newest game in the series is no different. But is it a good entry in the WarioWare franchise? Here is our review of WarioWare: Get It Together! for the Nintendo Switch.

 

10 Quake Remaster

 

There's virtually nothing new left to say about Quake, one of the breakthrough titles that changed the gaming industry forever. Along with its predecessor Doom, Quake stands as one of the most inspirational games of all times. It's 3D rendering was way ahead of its time and arsenal of weapons, puzzles and level design hold up to this day. Quake truly is a classic, and it has been remastered with 1080p resolution ...

 

8.5 No More Heroes 3

 

No More Heroes 3 is the strangest game I’ve played. Buckle up! Here is our review of No More Heroes 3 for the Nintendo Switch. No More Heroes 3 is strange. It is very, very, very, very, very, very, very strange. What? You want me to explain the plot? Okay… Travis Touchdown, an assassin, must save the world from aliens that dress like 70s B-Movie villain rejects! Thats the simplistic explanation for ...

 

6.0 Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory

 

Kingdom Hearts is a mess of mixed genres, overlapping storylines and convoluted writing, and yet we still love it. Its cheesy optimism and tight gameplay – not to mention the much-loved cameos – makes it a must-play for anybody with a heart (sorry, Nobodies). Melody of Memory takes all of that and basically just dumps it in the bin, replacing the best of the franchise with a self-indulgent ...

 

8.0 Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD...

 

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was originally on the Nintendo Wii. It hadn't been available on anything else...until now! Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is out now for the Nintendo Switch. How is the game on the Switch? Does the remapped controls work on Nintendo Swithc after so many folks passed on the motion controls of the Wii version? Here is our review!

 

9.0 Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings o...

 

Its finally time for our Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin review! For even more thoughts on the game, please check out our review-in-progress articles. How is Monster Hunter Stories 2 overall? Let's take a look!

 

8.5 Mario Golf: Super Rush

 

In our preview of Mario Golf: Super Rush, we told you about the game's brand new modes and how we've been enjoying them so far. But is Mario Golf: Super Rush another must have game for the Nintendo Switch or should you just go back to playing Mario Kart? Here is our review of Mario Golf: Super Rush for the Nintendo Switch!

 

8.0 Game Builder Garage

 

Do you like Sony’s game builder Dreams? Do you wish Nintendo had an interesting, more complex game builder too? Then you should check out this review of Game Builder Garage for the Nintendo Switch! Game Builder Garage is unlike any other game on the Nintendo Switch eshop right now. Yes, we’ve seen other game makers on the system like Super Mario Maker 2 and RPG Maker MV. However, Game Builder Garage ...

 

9.5 Miitopia

 

Miitopia was, and technically still is, on the Nintendo 3DS. We reviewed it on that system, plus you can find review-in-progress articles here. But what do we think of the Switch version? Is it the game worth picking up again or for the first time on Switch? Here is our review of Miitopia on the Nintendo Switch!

 

7.5 Famicom Detective Club

 

There are some games from the NES era that we never got in the West. Nintendo has started bringing some of them over like Earthbound Beginnings on the Wii U and the very first Fire Emblem on the Switch. And now Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind have been translated and will be on the Nintendo Switch soon. Are these games any good? Here is our ...

 

8.0 New Pokemon Snap

 

Personally, as a gamer, I’ve had a semi love/hate relationship with Pokémon over the years. I was an early adopter to the series having Pokémon Blue when it came out and did really enjoy the game. But we haven’t really had anything quite like that until then. Obviously, since then it has blown up to a worldwide phenomenon with people camped out for cards, buying games left and right, storming ...

 

9.0 Monster Hunter Rise -in-Progress

 

Monster Hunter is a terrible franchise. Monster Hunter is boring. Monster Hunter lacks depth and creativity. Monster Hunter is a button masher. Anytime I've seen a Monster Hunter game hit the market, these are basically the 4 stereotypical responses I go to in order to somehow justify why I don't want the game. And so, until March 26th, 2021, I had never played a single game in the franchise. I haven't even ...

 

9.0 Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Oli...

 

It's been a long while since we got a really good, brand new Story of Seasons / Harvest Moon title, and the month of March 2021 brought us two! While each game was vying for superiority this year - some called it the battle of farming simulation games - only one game really hit home, and that experience was Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. While I wasn't a fan of everything in the game, the overall ...

 

7.0 Apex Legends (Switch)

 

The good thing about Apex Legends’ recent Nintendo Switch release is that it’s Apex Legends. On the Switch. It’s the same game that you can find on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, with the same content and gameplay. And Apex Legends is a great game — I’ve played since launch day across PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, the Series X, and now the Switch. I love the game. My interest has waxed and waned depending on the season ...

 

8.5 Bravely Default 2

 

We checked out Bravely Default 2 for the Nintendo Switch with our review-in-progress. And now we are ready to pass final judgement on the game! Will this be another classic Square Enix JRPG? Bravely Default 2 is a throwback to older JRPGs. This series is what the Final Fantasy series use to be: turn-based gameplay with four heroes off on a journey to find crystals. This story might seem simplistic but the game ...

 

9 Littlewood (Nintendo Switch)

 

As stated in my first impressions last week: Littlewood is a game that seems to take inspiration from many others but presented in a way I have never seen before. This game technically starts at the end. There was already turmoil in your world. Your character defeated the Dark Wizard. The world of Solemn is finally at peace, but at what cost? You can’t quite remember. You start the game with pretty much a blank ...

 

7.0 Dry Drowning (Nintendo Switch)

 

Dry Drowning is an investigative thriller-oriented visual novel set in the futuristic dystopian universe of Nova Polemos. A shady socio-political situation dragging everything down to the abyss, a serial killer drawing strength from this darkness, a tormented detective, and his assistant craving for redemption. Dry Drowning challenges the player to find the truth, going through ambiguous characters, riddles, ...

 

7.5 My Universe: Pet Clinic Cats &...

Pay close attention during the medical examination, decide what care your four-legged patients need, and take care of their personal well-being through dozens of activities.

9.0 Super Mario 3D World + BowserR...

 

Super Mario 3D World was a great game on the Wii U and it still is on the Nintendo Switch. The following review focuses primarily on Bowser’s Fury. What is this new game? Is it worth picking up Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury to check it out? Let’s take a look! Super Mario 3D World is pretty much the same as it was on the Wii U. There are some minor differences, like the addition of ...
