Nintendo Switch SportsSwitch
Nintendo Switch Sports is competent, but unremarkable. It fails to recapture the magic of the Wii days, even though all of the tools are available. It does exactly what it says it will, but little else.
The Stanley Parable: Ultra DeluxeSwitch
The experience of The Stanley Parable is as fresh and unique now as it was almost ten years ago. To make things even better, the new content included with this Ultra Deluxe edition expands the game in new and interesting ways, making it well-worthy of a (re)visit.
Archvale is an engrossing title that you never really stop thinking about. It’s got everything a soulslike or Zelda fan could need, but twists the gameplay just enough to keep it feeling fresh, even when you’re grinding out levels to take on a boss.
Formula Retro RacingSwitch
Formula Retro Racing is pleasingly accessible and will offer instant nostalgia to 90s arcade-dwellers. Yet its lack of depth, online options, and long-term replayability means that only the most dedicated petrolheads will persist for long.
Primordia is a solid story with a point-and-click adventure built around it. A few unique mechanics keep things fresh throughout, whilst fantastic writing keeps frustration at bay when trying to solve the mostly logical puzzles.
Overall, Revita is a fun and challenging twin-stick roguelite game that offers players some different and exciting gameplay features to learn and master. There are better roguelites out there, but why not try them all?
Zombie Army 4: Dead WarSwitch
Rebellion have done a commendable job of remaining true to all that makes for a decent zombie horde shooter whilst also ensuring that Zombie Army 4 delivers an enjoyable and engaging game either alone or with friends.
Z-Warp offers up some tried and tested shoot ’em up action but little besides. Those who enjoy amassing high scores should find a decent amount of enjoyment from the game, but its appeal is limited.
Dexter Stardust : Adventures in Outer SpaceSwitch
Dexter Stardust is a short and straightforward adventure that plays on its charm. With witty moments, an enjoyable storyline, and great production values, this could be the beginning of a successful franchise.
What Lies in the MultiverseSwitch
A puzzle-platformer that puts story first, What Lies in the Multiverse switches out the challenging obstacle-filled fare we’re used to with this genre in favour of a well-polished narrative adventure that’s engaging to the end.
Tormented Souls is a fabulous return to classic survival horror, the likes of which haven’t been seen for years. Even horror novices will gel with it because it updates the genre just enough to be accessible in 2022.
Nobody Saves the WorldSwitch
Nobody Saves the World is a quirky and engaging little action RPG. With smooth controls, awesome art and sound, plenty of customization options, and fantastic multiplayer; you should definitely consider adding this one to your Switch library.
Demon Turf: Neon SplashSwitch
Neon Splash is a masterfully crafted sequel that takes the very best elements of the original highly stylized 3D platformer that Demon Turf is. By ditching the problematic combat, it offers a pure platforming experience that, while brief, is stellar.
Dawn of the MonstersSwitch
Dawn of the Monsters isn’t reinventing anything, but that lets it focus on what counts – punching big monsters in the mouth. If that sounds like fun to you, then you won’t be disappointed.
THE HOUSE OF THE DEAD: RemakeSwitch
Converting the classic The House of the Dead experience from the arcades has resulted in a short game with not-so-ideal controls. However, the high replay value may be more than enough to satisfy starving fans of the rail shooter genre.
It’s hard to recommend The Ramp simply because of how little it has to offer. It is pretty cheap but there are so many better skating games out there that will keep you entertained for a lot longer.
Sally Face is packed with interesting puzzles that evolve throughout each episode in a way that keeps you engaged without dragging on. While there’s definitely a level of jank to the title, it feels intentional and adds to the atmosphere.
Toodee and TopdeeSwitch
Boasting a unique premise that stands out from anything else in the genre, Toodee and Topdee is a challenging delight to play. Brimming with charm and with clear potential to build on its slight shortcomings, Toodee and Topdee are a duo I’d happily see again.
Kirby and the Forgotten LandSwitch
Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a colourful, magical, platforming-adventure delight with a cute factor that is out of this world! The game isn’t very difficult, but the upgraded copy abilities, mouthful mode, and fantastic level design make it a worthy addition to any Switch collection.
Hoa is short and, at times, you’ll be forgiven for forgetting you’re even playing a game. That’s not all bad, though: Hoa gives you room to breathe, to escape into its spectacularly-painted world for relaxation rather than challenge.
Overall, Chocobo GP has a lot to offer players, but the sheer amount of in-app purchases and popular characters being locked behind a paywall is frustrating after buying the game itself. It has potential, but these issues need sorting.
With interesting ideas and a unique atmosphere, Ashwalkers is a survival game where your choices really matter. Sadly, it comes with some serious interface problems that seriously hurt the experience.
Splash Cars is a simple game let down by a lack of variety. It’s short and cheap, and won’t leave much of an impression on most players. Still, there’s a decent amount of fun to be found here.
Triangle Strategy is one of the most polished strategy RPGs out there. Although it doesn’t reinvent the genre, it refines its mechanics to a point of near perfection, wrapping them within a riveting story that just takes a little while to get going.
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and PunishmentsSwitch
All in all, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is full of delightful puzzles, multiple endings, and amazing voice acting. However, agonizing load times really hold the game back from achieving its full potential.
