Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition

Switch
7.00
Dave AubreySep 04, 2020
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition clearly drops the ball on some key aspects of the multiplayer experience, but I can't deny my nostalgia, nor the urge I have to keep playing more. Even with FFXIV, this is still one of the best multiplayer Final Fantasy games.

Civilization VI

Android
8.00
Jon BitnerAug 17, 2020
Although it suffers from a few porting issues, the heart of Civilization VI remains intact. Fans of the franchise will be thrilled to discover that this is the exact same experience offered on other platforms, and one that holds up after all these years.

Paper Mario: The Origami King

Switch

Jon MundyAug 10, 2020
Paper Mario: The Origami King's overwhelming strengths make it more than worthy of your time, and there are systems in place that minimise its weaknesses. It's good to see that Nintendo still understands the heart of its oddball spin-off series, even if it still suffers from the odd inexplicable brain fade.

Crying Suns

Dann SullivanJul 14, 2020
Easily one of the best strategy games of recent years, and somehow even better on mobile. Its replayability is hampered by its story focus, and its chapter separation was unexpected, but gameplay-wise there's not a single fault.

Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise

Switch
3.00
Ric CowleyJul 08, 2020
Deadly Premonition 2's is a game built exclusively for fans of the original, and even they will be put off by the endless bugs, horrible performance, and questionable design.

Pokémon Café Mix

Dave AubreyJun 25, 2020
Pokémon Café Mix is a cute puzzle game with an even cuter art style, but that adorable aesthetic can’t mask a simple, but tiring puzzler. There’s nothing wrong with this game, and it’s worth a shot, but it’s not likely to keep you playing for more than a day or two.

If Found...

Cameron BaldJun 03, 2020
If Found... paints a full and vibrant picture of a young woman at a pivotal point in her life, fit with the devastating lows and ethereal highs that give it balance and make it an essential, illuminating story.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Switch
10.0
Dann SullivanMar 16, 2020
Animal Crossing; New Horizons, much like its predecessors, operates outside of the boundaries of most games. While the most tension you'll ever feel is while sprinting away from wasps, there's a warmth and comfort in the code which you won't find almost anywhere else.

Football Manager 2020 Mobile

Mark Langshaw Nov 25, 2019
By combining its predecessor’s accessibility with new features for the seasoned pro, Football Manager Touch 20 dethrones last year’s instalment to become the most definitive football management sim on mobile.

Luigi's Mansion 3

Luigi's spooky Switch debut revels in the details whilst stealthily expanding his horizons. Scarily good fun.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt — Complete Edition

Switch
9.00
Dave AubreyOct 25, 2019
With an engaging, lengthy story and a shockingly good technical presentation, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt easily becomes Nintendo Switch's best port, and one of the best RPGs on the system. If you haven't played it yet, do so immediately.

Overwatch®: Legendary Edition

Switch
7.00
Dave AubreyOct 25, 2019
Well polished, looks great, and plays well, Overwatch is a great shooter on Switch, let down by loot box mechanics and a lack of a decent progression or reward system.

Asphalt 9: Legends

Cameron BaldOct 10, 2019
Asphalt 9: Legends serves up the glitz of a high-quality arcade racer, though its hollow core makes for an overlong, vapid experience when compared to other Switch racers

Mario Kart Tour

AndroidiOS
7.00
Dave AubreySep 30, 2019
Mario Kart Tour certainly isn't the best racing game on mobile - in fact, I would argue that it's not really a racing game at all, more akin to a stunt game like SSX - but it offers fun gameplay and an interesting take on mobile Mario Kart. The monetization feels greedy and really does drag the experience down, but if you can look past that, and avoid spending, then there's an excellent mobile racer here.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on Switch reasserts the original's position as one of the richest, strangest and most affecting games in the series

They Breathe

Dann SullivanSep 18, 2019
They Breathe manages to deliver a deep horror experience without words. It does this through a mastery of atmosphere and an understanding of fear. If you're looking for a 20-minute, thought-provoking horror experience then look no further.

Traitors Empire Card RPG

Dann SullivanSep 11, 2019
I am shaken at how much of a surprise Traitor's Empire was. A clever, well-balanced tactical system carries a hammy-but-fun campaign before giving way to a decent online play mode which I hope will continue to grow. Fans of turn-based games will love it.

Telling Lies

iOSPC
9.00
Dann SullivanSep 11, 2019
Telling Lies tells a fantastic story of concealed identities, while also showing the power that lies can have over lies - whether they are our own or ones we are told to make. A few basic mechanics feel lacking, but it is impossible to deny the mastery of manipulated storytelling which is on show through clever design and impressive writing.

Pokémon Masters

Dave AubreySep 10, 2019
Pokémon Masters is an ambitious game that has made plenty of mistakes along the way. It's a lot of fun, with a lot of caveats. If you want to see the famous gym leaders and trainers of the mainline series come together and interact, then it's a blast. If not, then stay away.

An impressive idea which unfortunately ultimately becomes a series of puzzle bottlenecks rather than a runner.

When you take an award winning, perfect board game and you give it to a qualified, competent team, you get a perfect digital board game adaptation.

A fantastic port to touchscreen of one of the most well-rounded platform-roguelites out there. It's about time.

Gears POP!

Dave AubreyAug 30, 2019
Gears POP! is a decent mobile strategy game, one which can keep your attention for hours thanks to online play, but it's not the best in its genre either. Also, Funko? Ew, no thanks.
