    With impossibly light trucks that flip over if you simply sneeze, incredibly repetitive gameplay and a pointless, bland open world, Monster Jam: Steel Titans just isn’t fun to play.

    The House in Fata Morgana: Dreams of the Revenants Edition brings one of the best stories in gaming to consoles for the first time and it is a must play game.

    Sea of Solitude is a powerful story of loneliness, perfectly complimented by a beautiful art style and score.

    If you haven’t played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons before, this is definitely the version to get since it has an all new proper co-op mode including single Joy-Con support for you to be able to experience this short story on the go with a ready to go co-op setup. If you’ve already played the game, there isn’t much value in getting it again since the main draw is the puzzles and experiencing them for the first time.

    I cannot recommend Timespinner enough. The Switch port is fantastic and the game itself is special. My biggest disappointment is not being able to back the Kickstarter project because I had no idea about it then. I know most people who enjoyed Castlevania: Symphony of the Night will likely be enjoying Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night right now but Timespinner is something you absolutely need to play.

    This is definitely a version to avoid unless you absolutely need portable play over everything. The cutbacks across the board are more than what I saw in Dark Souls Remastered on Switch and it has worse audio issues and glitches. The fact remains that Assassin’s Creed III itself hasn’t aged brilliantly compared to other games in the franchise like Black Flag that was on the Wii U and would’ve been a better game to play on the go with a Switch port.

    Realistically if you have the choice of which format to get many would plump for the PS4 or Xbox One versions, but I think it’s the Switch version you should plump for, the portability and ease of multiplayer being considerable selling points should you fancy a quick race with a friend. Games like this make you realise that there are quickly becoming less and less reasons why games shouldn’t be ported to Nintendo’s great little machine.

    Overall, the Switch version is an excellent port of the previous remaster with the same additional content available once you have completed the main story. There is very little to distinguish this version from the previously released HD remasters, the only difference being the portability option that the Switch console offers.

    Samurai Shodown is a very different fighter to what you might be used to, but it offers a unique way to play, offering a different approach to the genre.

    Outer Wilds is good-looking and quite unique in its subgenre, and there's a compelling, intriguing mystery to solve that will keep you guessing as you progress across the galaxy.

    Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is an incredibly well-made adventure, and a heartfelt ode to games past.

    Easy to pick up, hard to put down. Muse Dash is a brilliant slice of musical goodness.

    Chippy feels incredibly familiar and intuitive and has enough of its own identity to make it worth a look. The challenge on offer is high and will require persistence and practice to master.

    Effie is a 3D puzzle platformer with a strong nod to games of yesteryear. Simple combat as well as a lack of any real challenge and samey boss fights make it a title best suited to a younger audience.

    Despite the multiplayer being slightly underwhelming, the new creation tools, single player story, and addition of Super Mario 3D World make Super Mario Maker 2 a fantastic overall package.

    If you can ignore The Sinking City's technical failings, set the combat difficulty to easy and stick to getting embroiled in the story.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a fantastic remaster, filled with great courses and plenty of replayability, even if the difficulty sometimes feels off.

    Dandy Dungeon is a breath of fresh air in a time when most games take themselves too seriously. I love the music and humour here. Having already played a good amount of it on iOS, it is good to see a whole new audience get a chance to play this since the mobile version is no longer available. If you enjoy roguelites and great humour and want something that oozes charm, you need to get this.

    Atelier Lulua is one of the better games in the franchise in recent times. The Switch version is absolutely worth getting if you’ve played the Trilogy (LINK) and wanted a new game to follow those. I’m still annoyed by the lack of an English voice acting option but the fact that this release actually plays very well on Switch even in handheld makes it an easy recommendation. I’m glad Gust has finally managed making their new games work well on Switch. Hopefully future entries are this well optimised for Nintendo’s hybrid console.

    Playing on the Switch feels no different to playing on any other platform, with no console-specific features or controls. That said, it is the kind of small-scale, intimate affair that feels more at home on the handheld. Plus, you’ve the added benefit of putting it down mid car-chase to come back later.

    As is often the case the Switch version adds nothing to the experience, but the graphical style and lightning pace suit the handheld screen way better than they suit a full-sized TV. The Switch, as a result, feels like the natural home for Katana ZERO, which slots perfectly into the existing catalogue.

    As for content, sadly both this version and Resident Evil 0 along with it have arrived onto Switch with no new console specific content. For example, this version doesn’t make use of the motion control functionality that the Switch can provide which means that this version is simply a straight port of the previous remastered versions, and as such my biggest issue is the pricing. My opinion will always be that Resident Evil is absolutely worth playing, however unless the issue of portability is your main driver for choosing this version then you are perhaps better served playing it on another platform.

    With the inclusion of F2 and an even more comprehensive career mode, F1 2019 is the biggest game in the series to date and quite possibly the best.

    Despite Larry himself not changing in thirty years, Wet Dreams Don't Dry still feels relevant, self-aware and has some decent puzzles for fans of the genre too.

    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 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.
