Ikaruga is an outstanding classic, which I find myself mentioning to anyone who will listen. It is a defining game in the shooting genre that all gamers should experience. The Switch version is true to the arcade, but goes above and beyond with the portable vertical play and global leaderboards. Don’t miss out!
OUTSTANDING - Super Smash Bros. Ultimate delivers the definitive version of Nintendo’s popular party fighter with more characters, stages, and ways to play than ever before. Ultimate is a collection of gaming history from the last few decades with something for everyone. Every Switch owner should have this in their collection.
OUTSTANDING - It’s not too often we give perfect scores, but if ever a game was deserving of one, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is definitely it. Amazing gameplay mechanics, an enchanting world of discovery, and stunning visuals come together for an unforgettable experience.
This is a game I can see myself replaying over and over again. The price is outstanding at only $9.99, and every single Switch owner should buy this. Elden Pixels has created a timeless classic with Alwa’s Awakening and I hope to see many more games from them.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the full package. It has a compelling story, fun combat, likable characters, amazing music, nice visuals, and rewards exploration. One could easily spend over 100 hours in the world of Alrest, and we wouldn’t blame you if you never wanted to leave. An excellent choice for your Switch!
I never expected to be so enamored with a pinball adventure game, but here we are! Yoku’s Island Express combines fantastic visuals, sublime audio, and addicting gameplay mechanics to create a truly spectacular Switch experience. Pick this one up – it’s something special!
Dead Cells managed to surprise me over and over again. The gameplay is so much fun and the audiovisual production sublime. If you have a disdain for Roguelikes (as I usually do) I think you still should give this one a chance! There’s a lot to like here and it’s easily one of the best Switch experiences so far this year.
An astoundingly excellent adventure game with a lot to do and a great deal of area to explore. They even take the game to the physical world and give you the option of holding the ships and weapons in your hands. Change them out to be instantly shown in the game and combine them in any way you choose. This is one of the best games to come out for the Switch yet!
