3.3 / 5.0 - KILL la KILL - IF
Aug 3, 2019

Kill la Kill's modest first game adds something new to the series, but leaves a little more to be desired.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled proves that Crash can still keep up with other mascot kart racers, even twenty years on.

My Hero One's Justice leaves room for improvement, but gives us a decent foundation to expand the world of My Hero Academia for future games.

It might not be Resident Evil 7, but this is nonetheless a great addition to the Switch's growing library of ports. Revelations is a real console horror experience, with the benefits of a handheld, at a great price point. There's not much to fault!

A strategy based game that's challenging and well-designed enough, it might just have you shrieking "BWAAAAH!"

3.6 / 5.0 - Hey! Pikmin
Aug 10, 2017

Hey! Pikmin is a great game to add to your library. It's a solid addition to the series and it freshens up the formula with the perspective shift, but having said that, don't expect a game that's on par with the previous console games. A Pikmin fix is always good though, so enjoy!

3.3 / 5.0 - Miitopia
Aug 10, 2017

It's almost like a proof-of-concept for Mii characters that's arrived a little late (after all, it's been over a decade since their introduction). I wouldn't really call it a game, because the gameplay isn't the main focus. Miitopia is about having a pop star RoboCop fighting a dark lord Pikachu; the absurdity of the randomness that comes with filling a video game world with whomever you darn well please, and there's something to be enjoyed from that.

4.5 / 5.0 - Ever Oasis
Jul 2, 2017

Ever Oasis exceeded my expectations. I've never been that much into Monster Hunter or Animal Crossing but Ever Oasis strikes a chord between them that bizarrely- works. Amazingly well. I can easily see myself continuing to play this game for a long time to come. Get yourself a copy now!

What Oceanhorn offers is basically a discount Zelda. The game borrows most of its gameplay from Zelda, but one should be aware that they get what they pay for. It's not well-defined or polished like a Zelda game. Instead, you can think of it as a cheaper alternative if the Nintendo Switch's premium price tag has left you a little out-of-pocket for Breath of the Wild. Do I recommend? If you already like the genre, you can probably get a few good hours out of the game. If you're new to the genre, Oceanhorn won't do you any favours.

3.5 / 5.0 - Arms
Jun 11, 2017

I had a lot of fun playing the game in small bursts at a time, but it's hard to keep invested when all I'm doing is beating someone up for each and every round. Let's hope that ARMS will continue the path that Splatoon laid before it by giving players new content and new things to do via free game updates. I really hope so, because I really want to see this game in a more fleshed out form!

2.9 / 5.0 - FreezeME
Apr 18, 2016

While FreezeME has all the makings of a great 3D platformer (after all, it is following in Mario's footsteps) there's something about it that just doesn't feel right. There's something off-beat about the game. It could be the iffy controls, which aren't as responsive and tight as the Mario games from which it's inspired. The collision is far from perfect; as I was completing this review I actually came

4.1 / 5.0 - Pokken Tournament
Apr 6, 2016

The experience that this game provides has been long overdue, and I praise it for doing such a terrific job. Considering the series currently contains 720 Pokémon, it's understandable that about 80% of them don't even appear as background scenery. Even with the presence of dozens of support Pokémon I can't help but think it could have been even better if the playable cast was larger.

If there’s anything I’d critique about the core gameplay, it’d be that the multiple objectives that occasionally each require immediate attention are straining. Dividing your attention across large maps, especially when you’re alone in battle is a wee bit stressful.

I always remember Twilight Princess being my favourite Zelda game. Replaying the game in HD, I still feel the same way about it. No other Zelda game is yet to match the free-roaming world, the intense story or the magnificent dungeon design. Nothing beats taking Epona on a run through Hyrule Field, slashing at moblins on horseback. I expected more from the graphics upgrade after comparing Twilight Princess HD to 2013's Wind Waker HD, but this version of the game stands to prove that even ten years on, the game holds up well. I'd absolutely recommend picking this up for newcomers and veterans.

Somewhere in this package lies a great game with plenty of excitement to offer- it just has a hard time presenting itself. Is it fun? Of course it is. With enough time and dedication, not only would you be able to master the game and its controls, but also have experienced one of those rare feelings of complete satisfaction just for having played the game. It also depends on your own tastes. Some would say that the best version of the game is the original Wii version, which is only available exclusively with the launch version of the retail game. I can't say that for myself, having only played the Wii U release, but if you're interested in Rodea the Sky Soldier, keep a sharp eye out for the retail version.

To get the best experience out of this game, you've got to have some good friends who'll play the game with you, which works best when everyone has their own copy of the game so everyone has a reason to play. If you can't manage that, online play will still get the job done, but if you're a go-it-alone kind of person then this is not the game for you. This is easily the best multiplayer Zelda game yet and it's a ton of fun, so I would recommend giving it a chance. Just don't expect a thrilling, complex story out of this one.

Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water may start out slow-paced with about a dozen tutorials before the real action begins, but if you stick with the game for long enough to get settled in this is a fun adventure into the unknown. If you're a fan of horror games but aren't a fan of cheap jump scares then this is the perfect game for you. Just make sure to leave the lights on.

While you're reading this, I'm probably playing Super Mario Maker. I'm hooked. You could be too.

I feel like Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. is what happens when you put Fire Emblem and Worms into a blender along with a comic book- so if either of those games tickles your fancy it'll be worth giving the game a try. The turn-based system and third person shooting complement each other, and while it doesn't feel natural at first, maybe in the future you'll find that traditional strategy games just don't quite cut it for you after playing Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. This game is definitely suited to players who play strategy games regularly, and I can't imagine opinions about it being unanimous. It's not a game that I'd usually play, but I don't hate it. It's a solid game, and if you're already interested I it the odds are that you'll enjoy it. If you're unsure about the game, stay away from it.

3.6 / 5.0 - Splatoon
Jun 7, 2015

I really like playing Splatoon online, and I'd love to give this game a higher score but I can't factor out the game's blemishes in its current form. You can't even perform basic actions like acquiring new weapons or outfits for your Inkling without being forced to go online, which is inconvenient if ever the servers are down. I really would have admired more modes for offline play, and I'm disappointed by a lack of content in the base game, but I am optimistic about future updates adding new content. But when Splatoon shines, it's a fantastic game. It's fun, it's competitive and above all, it's fresh.
