    It's over too soon, but while it lasts My Friend Pedro is a unique, likeable shooter and some of the best fun I've had in a while.

    Judgment is a new direction for Ryu Ga Gotoku, and whilst it isn't on the same level as Yakuza just yet, there's plenty of room to grow.

    A marriage made in heaven, Cadence of Hyrule is a toe-tapping, monster slaying groove-fest.

    A fast-paced twin-stick shooter that doesn't do a lot to stand out but offers a blast of fun in short doses.

    Miniature mechs minus the mayhem, Futurlab’s newest is bursting with tactical depth, yet lacking in variety.

    Everybody's Golf VR offers the same gentle style of golf that the previous entry had, and the golf feels pretty realistic. Unfortunately, there's a lack of modes and limited variety of courses that bring the overall experience down.

    Trover Saves the Universe is a very funny adventure game that doesn't offer the same brand of gameplay as Astro Bot Rescue Mission, but Justin Roiland's humour makes it much more appealing.

    While Home Sweet Home doesn't bring anything new to the table for first person horror puzzlers, it does stand out with the inclusion of Thai horror folklore which is truly terrifying. It's let down with a couple of bugs but it's not a bad way to spend a few hours.

    Cricket fans would be batty to miss out on this, but they should go in aware that things could still be better.

    If you’re after a royale-y good time you should look much farther than Tetris 99.

    Gato Roboto is a short, sharp burst of Metroid fun, with cats. It sounds daft, but strong level design and a few original tweaks make it well worth a look.

    Unruly Heroes is a beautiful, fun and engaging platformer with enough charm and replayability to make it a solid recommendation to anyone.

    Project Nimbus is a solid if unspectacular mecha action game that’s packed with content for a reasonable price.
    • 63 Metascore

    If you're after a fairly enjoyable loot-chaser to work out some of that daily stress, Chaosbane is worth a look.

    Slay the Spire is a hugely enjoyable single-player deck-builder that feels genuinely unique in its genre.

    In its current state, the Switch version has no touch screen support. This is very disappointing given the platform and its various input options are perfectly suited to games in this genre. Thimbleweed Park is the best example of how to handle bringing the genre to Switch. The Switch version of Deponia also has some inconsistency with A and B for selecting. Usually, games that see late ports to Switch and cost more have a few added extras. Over here, you aren’t getting anything extra barring the asking price.

    Price is a sticky issue, too. It’s simply too much for a game that, despite its status, is showing its age visually and mechanically.

    The Switch version of Team Sonic Racing is still a good game. It still has an interesting mechanic, addictive (but microtransaction-free) loot boxes that can make you change up the cars you race in. The story is nonsense, but the racing is fun, but it’s just such a strange game to put out when you consider the competition. Regardless, this is an alright version of a good game.

    This is a port only really worth picking up if you missed it the first time, but even then the iffy controls (sprint is the left bumper and the menu wheel is on A, for some reason best known only to Hell’s most prolific torturers) and shocking performance issues will leave you wondering what all the fuss was about. 8 years after its original release t’s still irreverent fun, though certainly hampered by iffy shooting and iffier driving, but Saints Row has always been one of those series that kind of gets a free pass because it’s so endearingly nuts.

    The variety of bosses is strong and the combat/reward loop is wonderfully addictive. If nothing else, the fact that every Behemoth, armour set and weapon can be unlocked without spending a penny makes it well worth checking out."

    Void Bastards is a fantastic strategic shooter than has a wonderfully refreshing take on the FPS genre.

    Atelier Lulua is one of the better Atelier games in recent times and a worthy follow up to the Arland trilogy with its relaxing gameplay and superb soundtrack.

    Whilst Rage 2 offers an intense wave of combat, the open world is dull, and the story and missions rarely excite.

    Blood and Truth is a lot of fun, making use of a wide range of guns and all of the Move controller's capabilities.
    • 64 Metascore

    Layers of Fear 2 starts off scary but runs out of ideas quickly. It tells an interesting story but is marred by out of place action sections.
    • 74 Metascore

    Observation is a fantastic game, bringing gripping science fiction and unique gameplay together for a truly remarkable experience.

    If you're not looking for anything particularly original, American Fugitive is a decent adventure with enough good ideas and atmosphere to keep you interested.

    Sniper Elite V2 is not the worst Sniper Elite game (the first one is) but it’s also nowhere near as good as the actually impressive 3, 4, or Nazi Zombies, all of which I’m sure would play just fine on the Switch. There is certainly enjoyment to be had here, particularly if you go in dragging your expectations on a limp length of twine behind you, but otherwise you’re better off just playing the later games wherever you can.

    If you’ve been craving a first person dungeon crawler on the Switch, Coven is definitely a much better game but if you already played that, this is worth looking into if you’re after fan service.

    With the enhancements and ability to play anywhere, The Zodiac Age on the Switch is everything I wanted from a portable release. It was obviously not feasible to have this on Vita but I’m glad Square Enix put this on a portable because the gameplay perfectly suits portable play and it is the full game with even more features than the PC version that was already a step above the PS4 version. I know its unlikely but the only thing I’d want more from this version is the ability to sync my save with Xbox One since I have that version as well.
