    If you buy it, you'll be bored with it in less time than it took you to read this review.

    In a move that doesn't happen often these days, I'm going to go against the mainstream critics and fans and say The Escapists 2 is a Switch game that doesn't even deserve a first look, let alone a second. If I want to feel the opposite of entertained, and instead an emotion bordering on physical pain, I'd save my money and throw myself down the stairs. My home has two flights, one for each game in this inexplicably popular series. Good news! I never have to play either again, and I can get the same feeling by hurling myself down one of the two carpeted inclines in my own home - for free.

    With all the indies in the Switch eShop, The Deer God is one that fails to impress on the level as others. As great as the premise is, the gameplay is repetitive and boring, with really no incentive to play for more than a few minutes. The art style is as tired as the random encounter or escort mission, and the game just fails to come together in any meaningful way. Other indies far outshine this one, and your money is probably best spent elsewhere.

    The only true horror in Black Mirror are the intrusive load screens and a game-breaking bug.

    With the load times, the cool but only once or twice modifiers and living boards that are all pretty much the same, it is probably a better idea, and a cheaper one, to just buy the physical board game, rather than invest in the electronic Switch version. Every know addition to the Switch's growing library is cool with me, but Monopoly is one you can probably take a pass on.

    Randall is more frustrating than it is anything else, and doesn't offer anything that makes up for subjecting you to that frustration. There are too many better games out there to waste your time and money on Randall.

    By the time I finished Valkyria Revolutions, I was almost comically over it. The most telling moment of the entire experience came as I was nearing the end, and my wife came downstairs and asked me, "Ugh. Are you watching that game again? Play something more interesting!" That's right, "watching that game again." With so many cutscenes, only broken up by uninspired action with ideas that don't work or aren't utilized correctly, Valkyria Revolution is tough to recommend to anyone for any reason. If the alternate history angle of the story excites you, you'd be better off playing any of the Chronicles games. If action RPG combat is your thing, Dynasty Warriors, Hyrule Warriors or the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors should scratch that itch much better than this game can. And if you are a longtime fan of the series, like I am, I can't do anything but warn you; this is not the game you wish it was, nor expect it to be. Please, Sega, let's go back to the way it was. This Revolution is not a welcome or a successful one.

    Akiba's Beat is, quite simply, the worst kind of disappointing. A great niche title like Akiba's Trip was weird and not for everyone, but what it did right should have been easy to replicate for a proper sequel. Instead, everything that was good about the original game was tossed right out the window. The gameplay, the world, the collection-frenzy and side quests, the bizarre plot and out-there interactions... all of it gone in favor of a dull Persona clone with next to no soul. Akiba's Trip was well worth taking (over and over again) but Akiba's Beat is just that - beat. Save your money on this one.

    Skyward Collapse is a game with simple mechanics, good interface and is visually pleasing, it's just not a lot of fun to play.

    Stay away from this game and go see the movie instead. Even if it is the worst film of the summer, it would still be Citizen Kane compared to its video game counterpart.

    I know there is a contingent of Trekkies out there that will buy anything with Star Trek emblazoned on it, and that's fine; buy it, put it on your display shelf and never, ever play it. That's what I did with DragonBall Z for Kinect!

    The only thing legendary about this game is the mess it makes of the Bond franchise.

    Thundercats looks bad, it plays bad and it drags a fantastic cartoon reboot's name through the mud.

    Inversion isn't terrible - its main obstacle is how many other games on the market handle this stuff much, much better.

    The ENTIRE single player experience can be viewed as such: Enter room, clear room of enemies, enter next room, clear enemies, enter... You get the picture. Boss battles do help to break up the monotony, but like I said before, they are crazy easy, oft repeated and often just plain stupid.
