    Visually impressive given its mobile roots, Implosion is a solid top-down action shoot-'em-up / hack-and-slash. The story is a bit baffling and the dialogue is sometimes hokey, but it's not that bad. It does get pretty challenging by the end of the second chapter, but fortunately you can go back and replay any completed stage to grind experience if needed.

    Implosion - Never Lose Hope could certainly be more memorable if it focused on delivering what it does best - good production values and a compelling customization system. Alas it quickly becomes overrun by repetitive enemies, disappointing combat, uninspired level design and a plot that is easily overlooked. Implosion could have been a memorable and remarkable game but it's clear that the its development went into another direction.

    Implosion is a hack 'n' slash action game that looks - from a distance - much better than it actually is. Once you start playing however, you'll find a fairly average (if not downright mediocre) title with some great looking graphics. There's simply nothing unique or enticing about this one aside from its shiny appearance, so you're probably best to look elsewhere if you're looking for something that engages you in any meaningful way.

    It looks good, plays great, and is a very solid and affordable title for the Nintendo Switch. If you are looking for something a bit darker and faster paced on the Switch, Implosion is a solid choice.
