Nintendo Switch Game Reviews


7.5 Pumpkin Jack

 

We are knee-deep in the spooky season, which I always find myself playing spooky games throughout, this year was delighted to find a trick not treat in my goodie bag in Pumpkin Jack. Which is a 3D platformer much in the same style as the cult classic MedEvil with a bit of a modern flair. The peaceful Boredom Kingdom, with its happy citizens, monotonous calm… and adorable little bunnies, has sent the Devil ...

 

7.0 Ys Origin

 

Ys is a long running series that doesn’t get a lot of attention. I’ve played a couple of the games but Ys Origin for the Nintendo Switch is the first time that I’ve really given the series a fair chance. Is Ys Origin worth a look or is this an entry in the long running series that you should skip? Ys Origin isn’t a modern action/rpg. It is most definitely an old school action rpg. The ...

 

7.0 My Universe – School Teache...

 

It’s the back-to-school season! Time to open the doors of your school and welcome your new students. Put on your schoolbag and get your notebooks: the game My Universe – School Teacher is available today on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and digitally on Xbox One and soon on PC/Mac. Play as a young teacher with a mission: take on the challenge to bring your new school back to the top and become the best ...

 

7.0 9 Monkeys of Shaolin

 

Whatever happened to the brawler genre? One day, every game was a brawler, and the next it was gone. It had become retro, with new content consigned to stylised sequels like the incredible Streets of Rage 4. 9 Monkeys of Shaolin is an attempt to bring those old titles back in something feeling a little fresher – and it mostly succeeds. But not just that. 9 Monkeys of Shaolin is a perfect combination of ...

 

7.5 Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand ...

 

Nickelodeon, a major part of most people’s childhoods of a certain generation. Myself, I was a bit older but still enjoyed some of the original Nicktoons like Doug, Rocko’s Modern Life, Ren + Stimpy, etc etc. Over the years they have done numerous mash-up games such as Nicktoons Unite (which was awesome), Sports games, racing games, and yes even racing sequels like this one. Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2 ...

 

10 Hades

 

Now and then a game comes out that you know you’re going to love. And when it finally releases, it’s even better than you’d hoped. Supergiant Games’ most recent release, Hades, is exactly that kind of game for me. It takes some of my favorite parts of past Supergiant games, improves on them, and adds my favorite roguelike implementation in any game. I adore each of the developer’s games and count Transistor and ...

 

7 Fight Crab

 

Fight Crab is a new type of 3-D fighting game that grants the player complete autonomy and control of their limbs as a playable crab. Create your own play-style and unique moves by utilizing the physics of your surroundings, and the unique movement style of each species of crab. The battles are Super Smash Bros in how they play out, there is no health bars, just percentage of damage done to you and your ...

 

9.0 Super Mario 3D All Stars

 

Its Mario's 35th Anniversary this year and Nintendo is celebrating with a whole bunch of awesome things, including the release of Super Mario 3D All Stars for the Nintendo Switch. The collection contains three games: Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. And GamesReviews.com has now reviewed all three and its time to tell you whether this collection is worth picking up!

 

7 Gear.Club Unlimited 2

 

Gear.Club Unlimited 2’s new Endurance race expansion turns the game into something that, until now, just hasn’t been available on the Nintendo Switch. Finally, sim racing fans have an actual option on the hybrid handheld console.   That’s not to say that the Gear.Club Unlimited sequel is a sim racer. The game is still largely the same in terms of structure: it feels a lot like a mobile racing game, with a ...

 

4.5 Harvest Moon: Mad Dash

 

What do you get when you take Harvest Moon, take out all the RPG elements, add some really simple puzzles and then charge £17 for it? Well, you get Harvest Moon: Mad Dash, and you might well wish you hadn’t. Here is a game that’s almost entirely the opposite of what Harvest Moon is all about, but with the name splashed all over it and the familiar sprites front and centre. It’ll almost make ...

 

7 Giraffe and Annika –

 

As a gamer we are often analyzing the value of a game by it’s length. We want the most bang for our buck, however at times games can overstay their welcome and become a fetch-quest driven chore of a time to complete. Giraffe and Annika is not that type of game, it is a charming fairy tale of an adventure game that can be beaten in 6 hours or less. A magical, mystery-filled adventure awaits! When a young ...

 

4.5 Brunch Club

 

Once upon a time, games were made to work as well as possible, and any janky physics or annoying glitches were the result of mistakes or oversights by developers. Today, as with Brunch Club, janky physics and annoying glitches are the game. Apparently it’s fun. We’ve seen it time and time again. Goat Simulator and Surgeon Simulator put their awfulness front and centre. The only reason to buy into it ...

 

7.0 Crysis Remastered (Switch)

 

While there are all sorts of nifty benchmarking tools out there for PCs, it feels like for years that the common refrain when testing a new PC build was to see how it ran Crysis.  It’s a game that, at its best, is one to show off to your friends.  With gorgeous landscapes and  superhuman abilities for the player, it’s a game that’s supposed to look good.  It’s an old game though. It ...

 

7.0 Skater XL

 

Fingerboarding, along with having really, really good Pokemon, was one of the main ways of proving you were cool when I was in school. I remember it well – wearing a leather jacket and awesome sunglasses, armed with a stick used to beat off the girls, I’d flick my way through the schoolyard with my tiny skateboard. It wasn’t the size though, dear reader, it was what you did with it, and that ...

 

8.0 Carrion

 

Videogames are often about defeating the big scary monster that’s tormenting the humans, but if you’ve ever wanted to flip the script and be that scary monster, Carrion is for you.  The folks over at Phobia Game Studio have put together a metroidvania style game that makes you feel powerful, clever, and has some of the most fluid movement of any game this year. Carrion puts you in the role of an ...

 

9.5 Paper Mario: The Origami King

 

Paper Mario: The Origami King is the latest entry in the long running RPG series. It is also the first of its kind to come to the Nintendo Switch. Is Paper Mario The Origami King a fun game or is it as paper thin as its hero? Time to find out once and for all. Welcome to our review of Paper Mario: The Origami King!

 

8.5 Story of Seasons: Friends of Mine...

 

Remakes on the Nintendo Switch have become incredibly popular, and the team at Marvelous (Europe and Australia) and XSeed (North America) have worked with the development team to bring this remastered classic to the west. Friends of Mineral Town was LOVED by fans when it was originally released back on the GameBoy Advanced, as it hearkens back to the hay-days of when Harvest Moon was a solid franchise. With a ...

 

8.0 Railway Empire Switch

 

Railway Empire, originally released on PC, XB1 and PS4 in 2018, is a simulator and economic management game by German developer Gaming Minds Studios which allows you to build a railway tycoon from the ground up. While there have been many issues with larger simulator games porting from current-gen consoles and PC over to the Nintendo Switch, a few have managed to do so quite successfully. Will Railway Empire ...

 

9.5 Burnout Paradise Remastered

 

Burnout Paradise, the last entry in the franchise (so far), has never been on a Nintendo system before. Enter Burnout Paradise Remastered for the Nintendo Switch! As a fan of the franchise, I was pretty excited to see this game come to the system. But does it live up to the hype?

 

7.0 SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for...

 

In this modern age of gaming where remakes and remasters are a standard, ONE SPONGE stands alone (not really Patrick and Sandy are there too) to try and breath life again into the platformers of yesteryear? But does this one get the job done or does SpongeBob just leave us all wet? The original game was developed for PS2, Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube back in 2003 believe it or not. While a major commercial ...

 

5.5 Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee S...

 

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee released on the Xbox in 2001, and was a huge hit. A version was then released for the GBA in 2003, followed by an HD version for PC in 2011. Now, in keeping with current trends, it has been remastered yet again and has dropped on the Nintendo Switch. Both developed and published by Oddworld Inhabitants, the same studio that developed the original Oddworld games all those years ago, the ...

 

7.0 Summer in Mara

 

Summer in Mara is an adventure simulation indie game for the Nintendo Switch (also PC, and later, Xbox One and PlayStation 4). It wants to be Harvest Moon with a mix of Wind Waker and its own unique story. The question is…does it succeed? Is Summer in Mara a good game? Let’s find out in this review of Summer in Mara for the Nintendo Switch! Summer in Mara wants to be a great game. Its graphics and ...

 

8.0 Clubhouse Games

 

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics is a collection of small games, everything from card games to fishing. We've seen Clubhouse Games on portables before but never a full fledged console version. Is Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics worth checking out on the Nintendo Switch? Let's take a look in our full review of Clubhouse Games!

 

8.5 Bioshock: The Collection (Ninten...

 

Bioshock has been around for so long at this point it’s almost difficult to remember how excited people were when it first came out.  Through broken street dates, fights over comparisons to System Shock, and evaluations of objectivist philosophy, the one thing the game hadn’t done was appear on a Nintendo console.  Now the original, sequel, and adventure in the sky Bioshock: Infinite are available to ...

 

9.0 XCOM 2 Collection Nintendo Switch...

 

One of the titans of the turn-based shooter, XCOM 2, has made its way to the Nintendo Switch! Featuring all of the DLC and the War of the Chosen expansion, the XCOM 2 Collection offers the complete XCOM 2 experience on what is quickly becoming the most popular current-gen console, the Nintendo Switch. As a turn-based game that does not rely on latency, frame rate or even reflexes, it would seem to be a perfect ...

 

8.5 Borderlands Legendary Collection

 

Not every game that is released on major consoles requires a port to the Nintendo Switch. While we fully support the expansion of gaming - and giving players on Nintendo Switch an opportunity to play games originally launched on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 - not every game ports well to the system. With that being said, when Take Two announced that three bundles would be coming to the Nintendo Switch, I was ...

 

8.0 The Outer Worlds Nintendo Switch

 

The Outer Worlds has been out on other systems for a little bit now. As of tomorrow, the game comes out on the Nintendo Switch! GamesReviews.com was lucky enough to get an early look at the game. Is The Outer Worlds worth checking out on the Nintendo Switch? Here is our review!

 

6 MotoGP 20 – (Nintendo Swit...

 

MotoGP 20 might just provide the Nintendo Switch’s best sim racing experience. But on a system best suited for kart racers, is that a notable achievement? I’m lucky in this modern gaming landscape to own each current major home console. Each system has its strengths and weaknesses — whether you’re talking game library, raw power, extra services or online infrastructure. Whatever console you have, you have ...

 

8.5 Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive E...

 

I did a preview of Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition here. The following is my full review of the game. I will take a look at the main game and its epilogue, as well as Future Connected. Is Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition worth checking out?

 

8.0 TT Isle of Man – Ride on th...

 

Earlier this year, our own Kevin Austin reviewed TT Isle of Man - Ride on the Edge 2 on the Xbox One. We will be sharing many of his same opinions in this review, with a heavier focus on the Nintendo Switch differences in this title. If you want to read his entire review, feel free to click on the link above! For my own part, I'm not generally big into racing games, especially those that involve a bike. But over ...
