    Apex Legends Mobile is able to differentiate itself enough from its original version to make it worth checking out for both fans and newcomers. However, its restricted movement and touchscreen controls might make it offputting for those not comfortable with mobile shooters.

    As a party game to play with friends and family and bring a group together, this is a good pick. For those who have played this style of game before, it is familiar with just enough twists of new elements. It's easy to learn to play without being too boring for experienced players. When it comes to solo play or online play, I think it will become redundant and dull quickly.

    Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a simple yet satisfying platformer that's fun for people of all ages and skill levels. Mouthful Modes are hilarious and upgrading Copy Abilities provides something fun to work towards whether you're playing alone or with a friend.

    Rune Factory fans will enjoy the game's switch to full 3D. However, it still has a lot of growing pains to get through.

    Triangle Strategy is a solid tactics title that features strong characters and gameplay, though it may not be for you if you're not into dialogue-heavy games.

    The improved features in this sequel were the perfect balance, but there were some much-needed quality-of-life features that failed to show up.

    Despite its drab locations and weak visuals, Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a breath of fresh air. It shifts focus away from gyms and the Pokémon League to focus solely on survival and the thrill of the hunt. Have fun gathering materials, crafting your own Poké Balls, and capturing or defeating Pokémon in ways we haven't seen before.

    Deep, multi-faceted gameplay anchors a story that spans modern Tokyo and the realms of gods, demons, and angels beyond. It's not for everyone, but hardcore JRPG fans will find a lot to love in Shin Megami Tensei V. It's a worthy entry in the long-running series.

    The very best minigames and boards throughout the Mario Party series have been brought together and recreated for some truly hilarious good times. While I wish there were even more boards to choose from, the game is still plenty of fun whether you're playing locally with friends or online with others.

    Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars takes you on an epic journey through countrysides and dungeons with unique features. The game is just as charming as it is immersive, providing an unforgettable experience on the Nintendo Switch.

    Strong gameplay, visuals and audio propel Metroid Dread to be the best 2D game in the series, though dated map design and lack of accessibility bring the experience down a bit.

    It's a great game for anyone who wants to check out digital painting. The pen has surprisingly good pressure sensitivity giving you good control. You can then share your images with others or view others' work on the online gallery. Additionally, the Color Quest minigame helps give you prompts if you aren't sure what to do.

    WarioWare: Get It Together! is a great party game that will be especially entertaining for co-op players. Some of the game modes force you to play certain characters, but those can be easily avoided if you don't enjoy them.

    This classic Sonic game offers some really fast-paced courses to run through, but the port can be very glitchy. It also looks and plays like a dated game. Unless you're a major Sonic fan, you might want to stay clear.

    This action title has great combat and humor, and will be a great both for fans of the series and, surprisingly, newcomers.

    Overcooked! All You Can Eat is a great multi-player experience with cross-platform play that serves up plenty of content for hours of crazy fun. However, this game is made for too many cooks in the kitchen, and it does have a few technical issues that keep it from being top chef.

    The manga art style, edgy music, and interesting premise make this a fun game for any player. Help Rindo and his team escape the "Reapers' Game" and meet a colorful cast of characters in the process.

    The presentation, humor, and beginner-friendly gameplay makes this game an absolute joy to play. However, some of the scenarios in the court cases were sometimes hard to follow.

    Pokémon Unite is a surprisingly fun introduction to the MOBA genre, but it has microtransactions that verge on unacceptable.

    With its updated elements, fun gameplay, and linear plot Skyward Sword HD is a major improvement from the original Wii game. However, it's still got plenty of flaws. Still, if you're a Zelda fan, you ought to check it out. Save the world from evil while meeting a colorful and quirky cast of characters.

    It's certainly cool fighting monsters from The Witcher and watching a story unfold through some lovely comic-style art. Unfortunately, the game requires too much of a time commitment and is pretty much pay to win.

    This is one of the best games to come to the Nintendo Switch. It has everything you look for in an RPG, from gorgeous cutscenes and complex battle systems to awesome creature collecting. The frame rates couldn't keep up in some places, but it is an excellent adventure nonetheless.

    Mario Golf: Super Rush is a pretty good golf game packed with a good amount of content. The only problem is that most of that new content gets boring fast, and an uneven presentation doesn't help.

    Game Builder Garage is an impressive and accessible entry into visual programming for those interested in game design, but the archaic online options and game limitations keep Game Builder Garage from reaching its potential.

    This Nintendo Switch port gives people the chance to experience a great RPG that they may have missed. Its silly nature is refreshing after so many serious JRPGs, but the world is lacking and the way that the game teaches you how to use new jobs can come off as a bit aggressive.

    The Famicom Detective Club games are gorgeous to look at and provide interesting supernatural mysteries for you to uncover. If you like manga, anime, or murder mysteries, these interactive visual novels will be right up your alley.

    New Pokémon Snap brings the spirit of the original game to a brand new generation on the Nintendo Switch. With breath-taking visuals, tight gameplay, and an unmistakable Pokémon charm, this title is a relaxing and laid-back experience worth exploring.

    Gameloft managed to take a pop-culture classic and breathe new life into a game that's been around since before I was born. If you have any nostalgia for the original, The Oregon Trail is likely going to feel very familiar but also offer a new way of experiencing such a classic title, but you don't need nostalgia to enjoy the game — it's that fun.
