    Dry Drowning’s premise of chasing a serial killer holds a certain morbid allure, but odd choices just make it frustrating to play at times.

    God Eater 3 was already a great game and the Switch version actually feels like the best way to play it. It runs smooth whether handheld or docked, and the extra content is a bonus. I’d probably go so far as to recommend this over the PS4 version, though if you already own it I wouldn’t implore you to buy it a second time unless Switch is your main console or you want something awesome to play on the commute. Either way, God Eater 3 is a prime example of a Switch port done right.

    Clannad on Nintendo Switch is the best version of the game. It has everything the PS4 version offers plus touchscreen controls that work brilliantly. If you’ve never watched or played it before, this is the version to get. Just keep in mind that it is very long even by visual novel standards.

    With no other Switch functionality like touchscreens (which, again, would work really, really well here), and with such a horrendous downgrade, it’s really hard to recommend Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden even to people who don’t own the other consoles. If you can get past the visuals, then there’s a great adventure here with a big heart and a compelling story, but I think for many people that’s going to be a big ask.

    Sadly, it’s not enough to just look good, and Trine 3 is lacking in several key areas, but it’s still a decent enough romp despite this. It’s hardly the definitive edition, or the definitive game in the series, but if you missed it and you’re gearing up for the release of 4, it’s worth checking out.

    I’d really recommend playing it on more powerful console, and I’d imagine it looks a lot better on PC.

    Continued character focus and new content additions make Eight Princes a solid piece of DLC for Total War: Three Kingdoms.

    Forager is a fiendishly addictive incremental game with crisp, low-fi visuals, compelling game play loop and clever pacing. Just make sure you don't have to be anywhere before you begin playing.

    A solid first effort from the Romanian outfit, a good narrative just let down by some overly simple puzzling.

    Madden NFL 20 is a great American Football game, and whilst it's better than last year, some of the mainstay modes could do with an overhaul.

    Whether you're a veteran of the genre or a relative newcomer, Planetfall will keep you plotting and planning your rise to glory for a long time.

    The Church in the Darkness has created a story that makes you question the cult's motives with every playthrough. No game is the same, but even though their are some neat ideas, the technical issues can really hamper your enjoyment.

    Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a fun if slightly buggy shooter, made more interesting with the addition of a friend to help you punch Nazis to the face.

    While not as horrible as the Professor’s pets, overly fiddly controls mar an otherwise decent puzzle adventure.

    198X is an incredible nostalgia trip for those who grew up playing arcade games and gives younger players the opportunity to experience those games in all their 80s glory.

    An engaging story and superb battle system keeps you coming back hour after hour, but Three Houses suffers from a lack of variety in the RPG sections.

    How this hadn’t been done before I will never know, but Pawarumi’s melding of rock, paper, scissors to a shooter is quite frankly, a blast.

    Despite some aggressive AI and an unforgiving penalty system, FIA European Truck Racing Championship is a solid and highly enjoyable racing sim.

    Keepers of the Void is an interesting addition to the game, with some great boss battles, but ultimately is a fairly repetitive and uninspired experience that does little to enhance Darksiders III.

    Whilst Dead in Vinland is a decent survival game, it can be punishing if you're not constantly managing every facet of your party.

    AOT 2: Final Battle is no doubt one of the best anime games ever with Omega Force absolutely nailing the source material.

    Automachef is a well-executed but niche puzzler. If you enjoy logic puzzles, and building and creating things, then there's a lot to like here.

    At times Ultimate Alliance 3 becomes a little repetitive, but Team Ninja have crafted a likeable scrapper that sets out to entertain, and succeeds in doing just that.

    Etherborn is a space and gravity bending puzzle game that challenges your spatial awareness, however despite a very compelling hook and lovely visuals it runs out of ideas very quickly.

    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II on PS4 is a near perfect remaster of a fantastic game that arrives just in time for Trails of Cold Steel III.

    A title that grabs your attention and has you hooked almost immediately. But after a while, the repetition and constraining design choices will put you off.

    A cracking version of a cool game, then, and one that benefits from being on Switch. Play solo in handheld and get your face right in the screen to react to the high-octane gameplay, and dock your console to play co-op (and make sure you get the mech suit because it’s badass). A glorious retro side-scrolling action-shooter, with tight controls, a great look, and excellent boss fights. It’d be nice if it were a bit longer, and many newcomers to the style will be struggling even on easy mode, but hey, you can’t have everything, I suppose.

    When you think you’re seeing a render in-game that looks too good for Switch, that’s because essentially a video is playing. Yes, the actual game part is lower resolution, and yes, of course if you can play it on PS4, Xbox One, or PC, you’ll get the better looking experience, but if you are a Switch-only console household then you’re getting a great looking game that sounds amazing, and tells a story with one of the best takes on mental health in a long time. Play it on handheld with headphones and you’ll be shocked, just don’t be surprised if it looks blurry (and sub-HD) on the big screen.

    With no extra content, no Switch-specific controls or features and little to offer those who missed it first time round, Red Faction: Guerilla Re-MARS-tered (sorry, that’s the actual title) has little reason to really be. I’d recommend it to you if you like blowing stuff up and shooting things, as it’s still a very playable and cathartic adventure even if the busy work gets a bit much, but I wouldn’t go into expecting any kind of revolution.

    For players who have never played Terraria before, this Switch version is an excellent port, but for those players who have experienced and loved Terraria on other platforms I’d argue that this version is still essential. The ability to play on the go in handheld is a huge draw and thanks to the excellent work to utilise the Switch’s unique features makes this challenging game an utter joy to play again.
