Xenoblade Chronicles was a gem on the Wii and a good add to RPG collections even on the New Nintendo 3DS. We praised the 3DS re-release for its ability to be enjoyed on the go — something that’s great for any long-running RPG, to be honest — and the Switch version’s able to do that while adding a new coat of paint and content at the same time. The end result makes it an easy recommendation to Switch players and RPG fans alike.
While Maneater is certainly a title that works for me in terms of its humour and an engaging core gameplay loop, its graphic nature means it’s not going to be for everyone. If you don’t mine a little gore — okay, make that a lot of gore — this unique experience should be right up your alley.
It’s polished beyond belief, offering immaculate sound design, tense highs and crushing lows. Speedrunners will have a field day with it, and I’m sure clever tactics will make for some choice livestreams. It’s trouble is that it follows so closely to Resident Evil 2, that it pales in comparison on nearly every front.
