4 / 5.0 - Mortal Kombat 11
Apr 25, 2019

Mortal Kombat 11 looks great and manages to make things fascinating to watch. With the ability to interact with people and tons of new and comical finishing moves, it has a lot to delight fans. Even if fatal blows and the unlock system need to be reworked, it's still a good fighting game. At most, I'd say it's something to be cautious of and certainly see what, if anything, changes in the future, it just hinges on what you want. Those looking to fight people online or just love the franchise will likely have a blast, it's those who really care about cosmetics that might take a hit.

3.6 / 5.0 - World War Z
Apr 24, 2019

Overall, it feels like a game that should have been released as an Early Access title for the next month or two. With a touch of polish and some quality of life improvements World War Z could be the closest to Left 4 Dead 3 we may get.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen on Nintendo Switch shows the title has certainly aged. While the visuals are not on par with other titles, it still has plenty of moments that will appeal to hardcore RPG fans. Given the amount of time players can invest, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen retains its charm despite shortcomings. Though, if you don't care about the portable aspect, the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 versions will give you a better overall experience.

3.5 / 5.0 - Jupiter & Mars
Apr 22, 2019

The hard thing about grading Jupiter & Mars is, despite all the complaints, extremely low budget looking surface and several scenes looking like something out of a PlayStation 2 game, it's still a fascinating experience. Even if the frustrating elements detracted from the fun and wonder of this world, I still found myself wide eyed and excited to see what the next area had. For that reason, I'd think there is enough reason to justify checking it out, especially if you own an OLED or PlayStation VR, just keep in mind that getting all those collectibles is an outright nightmare.

When it comes to Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain, a lot of things are set in, well, iron. It isn’t a good game, not by a long shot, though it also isn’t trying to be one either.

4 / 5.0 - God's Trigger
Apr 17, 2019

God's Trigger isn't perfect but it is a lot of fun. The silly story is charming enough to overlook some of the shortcomings, with gameplay having a nice balance between hardcore and casual. Ultimately, the ability to win or lose based off a single move works very well here, for the same reasons it worked well for games like Hotline Miami. So, if you want to see how quickly you can dispatch foes and enjoy a ridiculous story this is a can't miss.

4.45 / 5.0 - Anno 1800
Apr 16, 2019

Often in strategy titles there is the want for more. More building types, more resource types, more of everything. Anno 1800 has all of that depth from the very beginning with so many types of buildings there is an amazing balancing act to make. With chains of production to make, such as potato farms which supply schnapps brewers, there is plenty of thinking to be done. This is a game many would refer to as a time sink, yet it is one I'd happily pour hours into. The futuristic titles had lost their way somewhat, but Anno 1800 firmly steers the series back on track!

If you haven't played Final Fantasy X by now, it's the perfect time, especially if you own the Switch. If you haven't played it by now, Switch is the perfect platform to try, given the portability and smooth experience. Unfortunately, those who played it recently or want something new might be disappointed, though it's hard to please everyone. Especially when PC and PlayStation 4 have been out for a while and are much cheaper.

Even after a decade, these classics have plenty of charm. Between fantastic storytelling, well-written dialogue and engaging courtroom mechanics, it makes them a must for fans of visual novels or engaging experiences. Despite not offering new content, there is still more than enough to play. However, returning fans might find them a bit on the easy side and might want to consider skipping this release, unless you want to reexperience Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney in glorious HD.

The best way to explain Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is that it has the potential to be great, it just isn’t close to being there.

3.75 / 5.0 - Yoshi's Crafted World
Mar 30, 2019

Yoshi's Crafted World might be a bit more style than substance but it isn't a bad thing. Levels are fun, with the learning curve being low enough where anyone could jump in and have fun. The levels themselves are nice to look at and the amount of things you can do is surprising. Sadly, it doesn't result in Yoshi's Crafted World being as engaging as, say, Super Mario Odyssey but certainly enough fun for a young kid, someone intrigued by the graphics or simply a fan of Yoshi.

Those who love the time management and relationship aspects of Atelier will likely have a blast. As for those who like exploration, fighting monsters and being the achieving your dream might walk away a little disappointed. But, if nothing else, this is a title that certainly holds true to the franchise and caters to a different player base.

The Legend of Heroes: Trials of Cold Steel has a fair amount going for it. With a fascinating and deep story, there is more than enough to keep players entertained, assuming you can sit through the slower parts.

The levels are once again only available when past the Femington hospital, though unlike the Bigfoot DLC the challenge posed makes this more sensical – with this being the first time I had struggled to keep a hospital profitable. Simply put, if you are looking to extend the base game's awesomeness and have a new challenge then Pebberley Island is the location you should travel to!

Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! is cute, colorful and lets you have a tonberry as your bestest bud, it just a little rough around the edges. Story might not be the best or terribly important, but it is important to know where to go or what you're supposed to be doing. When you consider there are a lot of poor design choices, such as multiple menus or not thinking of the most common player choices first, it makes it a little harder to recommend. That being said, it gets enough wood on the ball to, if nothing else, make it a fun game to play on trips or the go.

Many of the positives of the orignal have been captured and bundled with a host of improvements, yet The Division 2 still feels like more of the same. Taken on face value this might sound negative but as the original helped the hours pass by, and the sequel matches this, and you start to realise this is another great game from Ubisoft. Built on the core shooter gameplay, the cover based combat is fast paced and explosive – without being too over the top.

Regardless of how simple The Princess Guide might appear, it's fun enough to enjoy. In a lot of ways, it seems like the perfect game for the Switch. Players can pick it up and have fun, change up their tactic or see what different units have to offer. The only real downside is the story, though the dialogue is often fun enough to get past it. Combine that with a fair amount of challenges, cute monsters and more and it's easy to have a blast with The Princess Guide.

3.1 / 5.0 - Fate/Extella Link
Mar 19, 2019

The hard thing about review a Dynasty Warriors game is how important is the mindless fun aspect. For Fate/Extella Link, it just feels so robotic that it's hard to get excited. Defeat countless enemies to see numbers go up, just for the sake of seeing numbers go up. Online will help fight this, as the human element will at least shake them up, though it's hard to say how many people will actually play. In the end, you have a hollow game with a confusing story, making it hard to suggest, unless you're a big fan of the series or just want some mindless fun before doing something.

The best way to look at One Piece World Seekeris that it's an anime game that is trying to be slightly better than the usual anime game. In this aspect the game succeeds, it just comes at a hefty price. Nice visuals and a new story don't completely make up for lackluster combat and empty world, but they do help. So, if you just want a fairly easy open world game set in the world of One Piece, then this should meet your expectations. But, if you want deep or complicated journey through the world of One Piece, you might want to keep looking.

2 / 5.0 - Left Alive
Mar 11, 2019

Left Alive is surprisingly simple, yet somehow manages to get so much wrong.
