Nintendo Switch Game Reviews


7.5 Valiant Hearts: The Great War

 

A comic-styled indie puzzle game, Valiant Hearts: The Great War follows four characters who find themselves caught up in the middle of the First World War. The game is inspired by real events that occurred in Europe betweeen 1914 and 1918 as well as actual letters that were sent during the war. Initially released in 2014, the Nintendo Switch port hit the shelves last November. Steel your nerves and get ready for ...

 

7.0 Everspace

 

Finally, the wildly popular space-shooter roguelike Everspace has made its way to the Nintendo Switch! Originally released in May 2017, Everspace is a beautifully minimalistic roguelike adventure game. Produced and developed by veteran indie developer ROCKFISH Games, Everspace utilizes the Unreal Engine 4 and has snagged many awards since its initial release. It was released for the Nintendo Switch late last ...

 

6.5 Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

 

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is a game heavily inspired by Egyptian lore, from its story to its setting and characters. Mythology is a good source for video games, though it doesn't always result in a good game. Is Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy good, OK, or just plain bad?

 

8.5 Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edit...

 

The Tales franchise has been one of Japan’s most popular game franchises over the last few decades and while there has been some favorable attention in the west, the franchise has yet to hit the mainstream. Hopefully that will all change, as Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition will be one of the first tales games to be released across all major platforms, at the same time.

 

9.5 Travis Strikes Again: No More Her...

 

Every once in a while a game comes along that just feels completely out of place in its environment. As soon as I heard that Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes was to be released on the Nintendo Switch, I knew instantly that this would be one of those games. Travis Strikes Again: NMH, in all of its raunchiness and straight-up adults-only dialogue, on the family-oriented Nintendo Switch? It just didn’t make ...

 

9.5 Super Smash Bros Ultimate

 

Although Nintendo has been publishing Super Smash Bros titles since the Nintendo 64 era, I’ve never really been able to get into any of them. The reasoning for that isn’t as apparent as I would have thought either. I like the idea of Super Smash Bros. I like the characters in Super Smash Bros. And I even love the level design. But for some reason, they’ve never grabbed me. A copy of the game was provided by ...

 

8.5 LEGO Harry Potter Collection

 

The grunting is back, and the voices are gone, but that's perfectly fine with us! LEGO Harry Potter Collection recently launched on the Nintendo Switch, and we are loving our time with it so far. While some will argue that this is purely a money grab, I have a different take on it which I will outline below.

 

9.0 Pokemon Let’s Go

 

It's been over 20 years Pokémon Yellow released, and Nintendo has brought back so many memories with the release of Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let's Go Eevee! From my first moments in Pallet Town to the completion of the Elite Four, and even into the post game matches against master trainers, Pokemon Let's Go gave me enough to remind me I'm playing something I loved decades ago, while offering enough ...

 

8.5 LEGO DC Super-Villains Nintendo S...

 

LEGO DC Super-Villains recently launched, and thanks to our friends at Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, we had the chance to play the game ahead of launch!

 

9.0 Diablo III: Eternal Collection &#...

 

Diablo III: Eternal Collection launches today on Nintendo Switch, and fans who have only ever owned Nintendo products are about to get their first taste of the long running, and incredibly successful franchise. Released back in 2012 on the PC, and in 2013 on Xbox 360 and PS3, Diablo III has had a long, successful run, with new updates and 'seasons' still rolling out for longtime fans to enjoy. All of that great ...

 

8.5 Starlink: Battle for Atlas

 

When Starlink was officially announced, and a partnership with Nintendo was formally shown off - which included the Starfox Crew! - there was a lot of hype and a ton of hesitation. As more and more companies opted to leave the toys-to-life genre (Skylanders on hiatus, Disney Infinity folded, LEGO Dimensions folded), it was shocking to see Ubisoft Toronto invest so heavily into it, with a brand new franchise no ...

 

8.0 Super Mario Party

 

Although I've always enjoyed the Mario Party franchise - mostly because it allows all my family to come together for one great evening of gaming - the past few releases in the franchise have been a bit subpar for me. They all brought their own unique spin on things - such as the 5th player option on the gamepad in Mario Party 10 on Wii U - but the inclusion of vehicles that transferred all players together at ...

 

8.5 Scribblenauts Mega Pack

 

When our own Daniel Fugate reviewed Scribblenauts Showdown, he felt the game had a lot of promise on Nintendo Switch, but lacked some of those key, classic Scribblenauts mechanics. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment must have heard that from other reviewers, as the company came back with another Scribblenauts offering on Nintendo Switch, Scribblenauts Mega Pack, which includes previously released titles ...

 

8.0 Into the Breach

 

I love turn-based strategy games. And amazingly, the Nintendo Switch has a bunch of them. Another one was added to the list last week: Into the Breach! I received a review code of the game and have been playing it. What do I think of Into the Breach? Here’s my review! There is sort of a story in Into the Breach: basically some creatures are coming up from underground and your timeline jumping crew has to ...

 

8.5 Detective Gallo

 

I finally have my review of Detective Gallo for Nintendo Switch. I should fax this review to Gallo. I don’t want a repeat of what happened last time. What do I think of the gumshoe’s latest adventure? Check out my review of Detective Gallo to find out! If you’re looking for a serious noir Adventure game, look elsewhere. Detective Gallo is a noir Adventure game, but it never takes itself too ...

 

9.5 Cosmic Star Heroine

 

The Nintendo Switch already has many wonderful rpgs: everything from Jrpgs like Octopath to Western ones like Skyrim. And we see more rpgs coming to the system all the time. Not that I’m complaining! I love the genre. I am so happy that the Switch has become a home for these types of games. The latest rpg thats coming to the Switch eshop is called Cosmic Star Heroine. I’ve been playing this game for ...

 

10 Flipping Death

 

Earlier this week, I wrote about Flipping Death a bit. It is currently available on the Nintendo Switch eshop. Thanks to Zoink! Games though, I was able to play the game early. And what I found was…well…check out my review to find out what I thought of the game! Flipping Death’s story is nuts. It is just really weird, strange, odd, silly, and completely wonderful. I love the dialogue in this ...

 

7.5 Hello Neighbor

 

Have you ever wanted to break into your neighbor’s house? If you are saying yes, then what the heck is wrong with you?! Also: boy do I have a game for you. And even if you said no, then thats ok. You should still check out Hello Neighbor for the Nintendo Switch. Why should you check this game out? Read on! If you want to be on the edge of your seat, Hello Neighbor will do that to you. From…

 

8.5 Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

 

When Captain Toad first launched on the Nintendo Wii U back in 2014, it received the utmost praise from most major outlets, our included, but that wasn't enough to get people to buy the game. And in reality, that wasn't the games fault, but rather, the lack of Nintendo Wii U systems in the wild. Fast forward to 2018, and with the popularity of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo was giving Captain Toad a second lease ...

 

8.0 Bomb Chicken

 

Thanks to a freak accident, a chicken suddenly doesn’t lay eggs anymore…he lays bombs! Bomb Chicken for the Nintendo Switch is an odd game. I wrote about it in a preview. And now my review is done and we can finally find out: which came first the bomb or the chicken? Wait. No. We’ll find out whether or not I recommend this game! There isn’t much of a story to Bomb Chicken but that ...

 

9.5 Wolfenstein 2 Nintendo Switch

 

I’ve written a lot about Wolfenstein 2 lately. You can check out my first impressions of the game here and my two preview articles here and here. But what do I think of the game overall? Where’s my full review of Wolfenstein 2?! My review is right here. Right now. You can check it out below. Remember when I was talking about how movie-like Wolfenstein 2’s story was and how it brought something ...

 

9.0 de Blob Nintendo Switch

 

If you thought that Splatoon 2 was the only game on the Nintendo Switch where you paint the town red, well, you were wrong! de Blob came out for the Nintendo Switch recently. Its a game, much like Splatoon 2, thats all about painting. Though in de Blob, you are transforming black and white areas into color. Its a pretty cool effect. Is de Blob a good game though? Check out my review! There is a story in de ...

 

8.0 The Lost Child

 

The Lost Child for Nintendo Switch is very strange game. It is one part anime, one part first person dungeon crawler, and one part investigation game. I didn’t really care for the game during my preview, even though I knew that it was good game! For my full review, I didn’t just look at whether or not I personally liked the game. I also looked how the game played, how it looked, and what it sounded ...

 

8.5 LEGO The Incredibles : All about ...

 

The LEGO formula hasn't changed a lot in recent memory and while in writing that sounds like a bad thing, in reality it's been working just fine for a number of years. Sure, small enhancements have been made in combat - changed in LEGO Ninjago Movie Game and kept for this adventure - but overall, the brick busting, stud collecting, puzzle solving characters are back, with more options than ever before. And the ...

 

8.0 Mario Tennis Aces

 

Mario Tennis Aces is hitting the Nintendo Switch at the exact right time, about half a year before Nintendo's next major multiplayer title - Super Smash Bros Ultimate - and just a few months before Nintendo's paid online access take affected. And this timing is incredibly important, because despite its shortcomings on single player content, Mario Tennis Aces is setting itself up to be one of Nintendo's better ...

 

8.0 Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido...

 

When watching gameplay of Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, I was having a very difficult time getting excited. I'm a big fan of puzzle games, but on my mobile phone instead of consoles. It was for this reason that I actually chose to skip out on the demo of Sushi Striker and focus on other games and articles that need to be written. When the opportunity came up to take the retail version for a spin, I decided ...

 

8.5 Happy Birthdays

 

I love simulation games. Animal Crossing is my all-time favorite game. I’m also a huge fan of Sim City and I even like The Sims. Well, kind of. But the simulation genre really appeals to me. So I had a feeling that I would like Happy Birthdays. But how much do I like it? And does this game appeal to non-simulation genre fans? I was surprised to find that Happy Birthdays has an actual storyline. I ...

 

8.0 Smoke and Sacrifice

 

I’ve played a few survival rpgs and they are pretty fun. Yes, you will die a lot in survival rpgs, but you also get to do things in them that you don’t find yourself doing in other types of rpgs. For instance, crafting new and surprising items to fight off or capture something. Smoke and Sacrifice for the Nintendo Switch is a survival rpg that puts you into some interesting situations. The game also ...

 

8.5 Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Delux...

 

Do you miss the old days of pen, paper, and dice rpgs? Oh wait, do you still play those types of rpgs? There’s nothing at all wrong that! Of course, you could be like me and you never played those rpgs at all. For any of the people listed above, as long as you like rpgs, then you should be interested in Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Deluxier Edition for the Nintendo Switch. Why? Read on to find out…

 

9.0 Battle Chasers: Nightwar

 

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is based on a 90s comic book by artist Joe Madureira. The game was recently released on the Nintendo Switch eshop. We received a review code and checked it out. Is Battle Chasers: Nightwar a good game? Battle Chasers: Nightwar’s story is very interesting. I do wish I had read the comics so that I knew the main characters better, but you don’t need to have read the comics to ...
