Nintendo Switch Game Reviews


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 ...

 

8.5 Minecraft Dungeons

 

irst wrapped up my playthrough of Minecraft Dungeons on the default difficulty, I thought it was a fun game, but perhaps a bit shallow.  I came away from it thinking I'd seen all that the game had to offer, and that the Adventure and Apocalypse difficulties would, for the most part, be more of the same.  After all, I'd unlocked a couple of hidden levels, and felt that I'd explored each map from head to toe.  By ...

 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons A F...

 

April 2, 2020. One week into the kids staying home due to the pandemic we found a new pass time: the entire family in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch.

 

7.0 Fury Unleashed

 

Fury Unleashed is a 2D-action-platformer-roguelike set in a comic book.  That’s a lot of different genres thrown out there, but in reality, the game is similar to others already on the market, most closely resembling games like Enter the Gungeon or Rogue Legacy.  Players explore a hand-drawn world, spanning four different procedurally-generated comic worlds, fighting off themed enemies as the titular Fury, ...

 

8.5 Moving Out is another Couch Co-Op...

 

The creation and release of wacky, fun couch co-op titles has ramped up over the past few years, with great hits like Overcooked and it's sequel, Overcooked 2. This style game has created a number of fun and wacky similar titles, and the latest and greatest is Moving Out, developed by SMG Studio and published by Team 17, the great folks behind the Worms franchise. But can Moving Out capture the wacky fun of ...

 

8.5 Creative Soundblaster G3

 

As a rule, I am often skeptical of third-party accessories that claim to offer a boost in audio quality, especially when these accessories are reasonably priced. More often than not, accessories of this type will indeed created an amplified audio experience, but at the cost of heavy distortion. Other times you receive what is, in essence, no more than an advanced audio EQ - not something worth dropping any ...

 

7.5 Panzer Dragoon: Remake

 

When released in the mid 1990's, Panzer Dragoon captivated gamers with its revolutionary visuals and controls. As one of the first 3D games available for console gamers, Panzer Dragoon allowed the player to change your views and experience the depth of the 3D world it is set in. Now, 25 years later, Panzer Dragoon: Remake has been released for modern consoles. The question in the minds of many (myself included) ...

 

9.0 Shinsekai: Into the Depths

 

When I think of underwater games, I tend to think of Bioshock. That is the best example of a game that takes place underwater. Most of the time though, underwater experiences are only part of a game and not the whole concept. Shinseki: Into the Depths is a 2D Metroidvania that takes place completely underwater. Is it any good? Here is my review of Shinseki: Into the Depths for the Nintendo Switch! Shinsekai: ...

 

8 One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4

 

One Piece is a Japanese anime television series adapted from the manga of the same.. The story follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a boy whose body gained the properties of rubber (Think Mr. Fantastic doing martial arts) after unintentionally eating a Devil Fruit. With his crew of pirates, named the Straw Hat Pirates, Luffy explores the Grand Line in search of the world’s ultimate treasure known as ...

 

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 Firs...

 

I was not familiar with what One Piece was other than seeing the occasional artwork, cover, or game released every once in awhile. So for those like me not used to the source material, as best I can tell, it goes like this.

 

7.0 Operencia: The Stolen Sun

 

Operencia: The Stolen Sun is an old school dungeon crawler that evokes real feelings of nostalgia, but might be a bit more difficult to adapt to for those used to the comforts of more modern games.  These challenging retro-style games have seen a bit of a comeback recently, most notably with surprise hit Darkest Dungeon.  Operencia operates in a bit more straightforward way than DD though, with a static cast of ...

 

8.5 Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales ...

 

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a role-playing game that heavily incorporates a revamped version of Gwent, the card game featured in the Witcher games. Originally released in 2018 on PC and consoles, Thronebreaker has now made its way to the Nintendo Switch! While it does incorporate the card game, Thronebreaker is much more than that. Featuring a 30+ hour campaign, the game plays very much like a typical ...

 

10 Animal Crossing: New Horizons -in...

 

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the first ever HD Animal Crossing game. There have been two portable AC games and two console ones. New Horizons is the first one to ever be both. Fans and newcomers alike have had high expectations for this game. So, does it live up to the hype? Here is our review-in-progress of Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch!

 

3 Fishing Adventure

 

I have many fond memories growing up of going to the lake with my fishing pole and tackle box, and spending an afternoon hanging out with a friend, trying to catch fish. Fishing for me was more about spending time outdoors with friends and family than about catching dinner, but the rush of catching a fish added to the experience. As a gamer, I also liked virtual fishing, whether it was Sega Bass Fishing on the ...

 

7.5 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue T...

 

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is another in a long line of Nintendo games to feature unnecessarily long titles. But long story short this is a remake of 2005 games on the Gameboy Advance: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team and Red Rescue Team. While visually the game is VERY different than its predecessor, featuring a hand drawn and painted art style, mega evolution, auto mode and such. The ...

 

7.5 Monster Energy Supercross 3 ̵...

 

I’m going to take a step back from reviewing Monster Energy Supercross 3 on the PS4, and let my 3-year-old give her thoughts on the latest game in the series from Milestone. “The obstacle course looks beautiful!” Insert “track” for “obstacle course” and you can see where she’s coming from. The game is a looker, as each of its predecessors has been. The tracks look great from the beginning, whether you’re ...

 

4.0 Ski Sniper

 

Ski Sniper, what comes to mind when you hear that? At first I thought well maybe it’s a dumbed down name for a game about the winter sport – biathlon. Or maybe you are a sniper on skis, that might be cool….well Ski Sniper is neither, it’s alot darker than it seems. Here is the official description from developer Crazy Rocks: Have You ever wondered how difficult is to shoot a ski jumper on ...
