    More Than a Feeling has some fierce positives and big negatives, but its character building and script pulls it through, making the wait for episode four that much harder.

    Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is a gorgeous, amusing, and challenging turn-based strategy that's easily the best exclusive on Nintendo Switch so far. I'm just as surprised as you are.

    Sonic Mania is a love letter to fans of the franchise, who will no doubt lap it up. But it also feels like a missed opportunity to be what Sega has never achieved before: a truly great Sonic game.

    • 80 Critic Score
    The sort of dogfighting game you're going to end up stuck in, in the very best way.
    • 81 Metascore

    Super Phantom Cat 2 is an interesting, if simple platformer, with a few decent ideas thrown into the mix.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Giant Consequences starts strong, playing off relationships, but loses its way a bit as the episode goes on.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    There's nothing surprising about Combat Squad, and there are better multiplayer shooters out there.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A thick and entertaining mobile MOBA that's probably the best of the bunch.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ironcast is a match three roguelike with surprisingly detailed tactical combat, but it's as much based of random luck as it is your own forward planning.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A brilliant and warm-hearted RPG that deserves to be played by as many people as possible.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A clever, good looking puzzler that's got enough going on under the hood to recommend.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Egglia is a gorgeous if uninspiring JRPG that really doesn't do enough to justify the steep price tag.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    An appealing combat racer that's critically hampered by frequent momentum-sapping breaks in the action and an overbearing ad system.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A sharp and entertaining game of mixing potions and clearing cards. Miracle Merchant looks gorgeous too, and it cements Tiny Touch Tales as one of the most interesting developers working in digital cards at the moment.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A tough but ultimately rewarding board game reworking of some classic gamebooks.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    There are a few niggles here and there, but the scope of Mini Day Z can't be sniffed at. It's a massive game, with multitudes of randomly generated islands to explore. There are different characters to play, and each time you pick up the game things are going to be different. If you're looking for a simple-to-start-with game of staying alive, then you could do a lot worse than checking this one out.

    Miitopia has charm in spades, but its casual brand of JRPG might be a little too light and fluffy for some.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It's sharp, it's cruel, and if you're a fan of ROME: Total War, you're going to absolutely love it.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Tales of the Rays is an enjoyable mini JRPG that's unfortunately bogged down with typical freemium trappings. This one's for the diehards only.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A wonderful mix of RPG ideas that deserves to be played by as many people as possible.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A decent enough game, but there's not enough here that really sparks into life.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Splatoon 2 is an incredible shooter that improves on the original in almost every single way. But if you still have a Wii U and don't care about taking it on the go, there might not be enough new content to justify the purchase.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    A decent enough tapper with some famous sweaty men, that doesn't add anything to the genre.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    There's still a wonderful game here, it's just a little hamstrung on a platform it was never designed for.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Layton's Mystery Journey may be a big investment, but if you're a fan of the games or love solving puzzles in general this'll be well worth the money.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Motorsport Manager 2 is a highly polished, incredibly engaging simulation. But it's not too daunting if you're new to the genre. There are things to tweak and think about, but there's never too much information that you feel squashed under it. But there's still enough going on that you feel like you're part of something. Fans of sims, of racing, and even people with only a vague interest in either, are going to lap up everything this one has to offer. Oh hey, lap, that's a pun.

    Resynth's musical design and relaxed pace makes for a satisfying minimalist puzzle game.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Lots of bitty components fail to amount to much of anything in this slightly thin sci-fi spin-off.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Shephy has a lot of promise, but ultimately lets itself down by unbalanced decks and somewhat messy rules.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Death Squared is a well-made and entertaining cooperative puzzler which seems a pretty darn perfect fit on the Switch.
