Whether you're fans of the franchise or a rhythm game enthusiast, Persona Dancing: Endless Night Collection is a compilation that's hard not to recommend.

While Civilization VI on Nintendo Switch lacks online multiplayer, it's amazing to see how well it runs on the handheld console even with its limited technical abilities. With brilliantly adapted UI elements and controls for the Nintendo Switch, Civilization VI almost feel as native to the hybrid console as it is to the PC.

7.6 / 10.0 - NBA 2K Playgrounds 2
Nov 13, 2018

While the first title was a great start for a genre long forgotten, NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 fell into the modern day trap of microtransaction schemes. A shame considering it's a solid game, accessible for all, and visually correct on all consoles with an upgrade to its multiplayer mode.

Bandai Namco set a goal to adapt My Hero Academia into a video game, and the overall result is quite decent in My Hero One's Justice. It's not a groundbreaking game for those that played other 3D brawlers from the same publisher, but then again the Naruto game franchise didn't become what it is today from just one released title.

Child of Light Ultimate Edition is an ideal game for the Nintendo Switch, especially if you never played the game previously. On the other hand, there's no much novelty for those that did finish this title back in 2014.

8.6 / 10.0 - This Is the Police 2
Oct 12, 2018

Despite not much changed in the core game, and the tactical combat mechanics are rather simplistic, This is the Police 2 is a solid sequel to the original game.

7.3 / 10.0 - Disgaea 1 Complete
Oct 10, 2018

Disgaea 1 Complete brings back the franchise to life and gives a chance for newcomers to experience a stellar game that amazed players humour in the days, it does it so with impressive combat, characters and a stellar soundtrack. Disgaea 1 Complete falters graphics wise, still managing to look aged even with the updated visuals and with a system that requires much grinding.

With a new world to discover, Assassin's Creed Odyssey continues on the path set by Origins, giving more choice to the players, with a bigger focus on RPG and the comeback of naval warfare. A definitive evolution of the series, and shouldn't be missed.

9.1 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 4
Sep 28, 2018

Forza Horizon 4 is an excellent blend of arcade racing and racing sims, and it’s probably the best installment of the Horizon series thus far. It offers a breathtaking open world to drive through and some very accessible racing for mainstream fans, along with a bit of tinkering for people that like their racers a bit more technical.

9.1 / 10.0 - NBA 2K19
Sep 22, 2018

It might not feel that different from last year, but NBA 2K19 continues to be the best there is in terms of sports simulation games with neat updates. A definite pick for fans!

8.2 / 10.0 - Marvel's Spider-Man
Sep 21, 2018

While not really original, and a work clearly inspired by other modern adventure games, Marvel's Spider-Man is still a welcome return of the superhero in the gaming world powered by one hell of a technological feat.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is a fine expansion, and by listening to its community, Bungie with the help High Moon Studios managed to bring back some life into what was a rough year for the franchise. Let's hope they sustain the hype with a steady flow of content and fun activities until the next expansion.

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is a weird fighting game. It tries to appeal to newcomers by banking on hypersexualization of its characters and downplaying game mechanics which might push away fans.

While there are tiny additions to the experience and quite a noticeable upgrade in terms of visuals, Shadow of the Tomb Raider feels more like the two previous games than a fresh experience.

Soleil's Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is definitely a game for fans of the franchise that want to have a different experience than the CyberConnect2 series. While not perfect, it offers an interesting experience based on multiplayer and cooperation.

8.5 / 10.0 - Two Point Hospital
Sep 6, 2018

We might have waited for more than 20 years to get a sequel, but it was worth it, as Two Point Hospital is definitely a great return of the hospital-sim genre. Grab this title without a doubt!

7.6 / 10.0 - Shenmue 1 & 2
Sep 1, 2018

When compared to other games that received the proper remaster treatment by Sega, Shenmue 1 & 2 HD doesn't shine with its minimalist rework for the new console generation.

8.2 / 10.0 - The Spectrum Retreat
Aug 19, 2018

The Spectrum Ward is a creative little title that manages to craft an interesting world and some memorable moments, but it feels a bit lacking in the gameplay department. Still, while its puzzles may not wow, it’s an experience worth having

8.6 / 10.0 - The Banner Saga 3
Aug 14, 2018

The Banner Saga 3 is a great ending to the Stoic Studio’s trilogy, close to perfecting the recipe after six years of development. There’s so much depth and you’ll get involved with the characters and their tragic stories.
