It'sI've tried to press on with this game since I got it. I really wanted to play a JRPG on switch, bur after iver a year I'm done with it. It's got to be the most boring lazy JRPG I've ever played.
Everything about it is just generic and dull. The story and the characters are just nit intersting, the dialogue is uninspired, the art style is awful. Everywhere is jusy boring white snow. The battles go on far too long for when all you can do is use your one attack or heal. The monsters look like generic monsters from other games.
If anyone enjoyed this its because it was the only JRPG on switch and one of the only games. It no longer is, dont throw your money away.… Expand

I'd put it right up there with Starship Patrol on DS and Field Runners 2 /Bloon 5 on ipad as my all time favourite tower defence.
My 1 issue with the first pixel junk game is that it could have possibly done with a speed up button.
Pixel Junk 2 not only doesn't have the speed up button either, but it's even slower than the first game. There are times when i've just put the controller down and started doing something on my phone to occupy my boredom while the game plays itself. To make matters worse, their also doesn't seem to be a run button like their was in the first game, so not only is the game play even slower, so is your character.
I'm not too keen on the graphic change, i associate 2d with pixel junk, this doesnt seem to fit in with their style at all. Looks really generic now.
If the developers add a fast forward button in a later update I'd reconsider the score, but as it is, it's slow speed and lack of challenge are sending me to sleep, I don't think my boredom will let me get to the later levels and difficulties.… Expand

Average User Score: 8.1Mar 29, 2018Looks like garbage compared to other versions and isn't nearly as smooth so it makes hitting the ball in just the right place alot harder. OnLooks like garbage compared to other versions and isn't nearly as smooth so it makes hitting the ball in just the right place alot harder. On top of that it constantly pairs you with other switch users but will happily put you against pc players, so you're doubley handicapped.
Most of the fun of rocket league is competition. But you're never gonna get ranked high enough on switch to enjoy playing the game with someone who knows how to play.
Its a fun local game i guess, but not with the single joycons. Pro controllers are required… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Mar 22, 2018Good game if you've got a friend to play with, but toxic if you're on your own. Either spend 10 to 15 minutes getting rammed and insulted byGood game if you've got a friend to play with, but toxic if you're on your own. Either spend 10 to 15 minutes getting rammed and insulted by your team mate or leave early and get a 5 minute ban. Alternatively play unranked where zero match making exists and you'll spend the majority of the game playing with bots. It'll be a great game when they start banning the people ruining it instead of those trying to enjoy it.
You can even just hold down accelerate and change channel, you get banned for that too. The devs want you to be as miserable as possible for as long as possible.
If your a parent, for the love of god dont let your parents play such a toxic environment. If they insist, I woul strongly advise turning chat off.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.1Mar 17, 2018I think this might be the worst game I've ever played. Not for bugs or anything, but gameplay wise it's really bad.

The story mode wasI'm a big fan of pure platformers, but I felt this particular game just tried a bit too much to be something special.
The story mode was great playing it through took about 5-6 hours and I really loved it. But I wanted some replayability and for me this game doesn't really have that. I enjoyed going back to the first world to get collectibles I'd missed and doing the bside and any other bsides id stumbled on along the way, but alot of the worlds just arent fun to explore. I dont want to have to jump into every part of every wall on ever level, well also being chased by something that will kill me if there isnt a hidden area there. Too much of the games best content is hidden away and most will get bored trying to find it.
Would have been a better game if you could just pick your level like super meat boy and if things werent hidden.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.7Feb 1, 2018Tried the first game on 3ds but gave up after 20 odd hours of running round lost. Gave X about 4 hours on wi u but couldn’t get into it atTried the first game on 3ds but gave up after 20 odd hours of running round lost. Gave X about 4 hours on wi u but couldn’t get into it at all. The story and the characters of this one however had me hooked long enough to learn all the mechanism I really enjoy the battle and upgrade systems.
Took around 60 hours to finish and it’s the first JRPG that isn’t a pokemon game that I’ve finished since FFVII.
It’s not perfect, there’s a lot to learn, to the point where I didn’t get how affinity was even represented until,the last battle. The voice acting is mixed, mainly the main character who’s a bit annoying and Cheesey. The map and level design will frustrate you at time, the platforming mechanics are poor and unfortunately there are areas where you need to walk narrow paths or time jumps.
But aside from all this, it’s an absolutely amazing game, one that after 20 hours in I couldn’t put down.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Jan 10, 2018For a while i thought Fire Emblem Awakening was the best fire emblem game, even during my playthrough of Fire Emblem Fates, But going back toFor a while i thought Fire Emblem Awakening was the best fire emblem game, even during my playthrough of Fire Emblem Fates, But going back to awakening I realise how good Fates was.
I've played every Fire Emblem game that got a western release, and even a couple of the japanese ones with patch translations, over the last 5 years, and this one is hands down my favourite.
First of all, its massive, with 3 different branches to play through. Other Fire Emblem games have had a branch split, but not as many as this one. I prefer the unbreakable weapons, that have positive and negatives, to other fire emblem games breakable weapons, although I think they're both good in their own right.
The story in Fates is easily the best one too, most are pretty forgettable, I did enjoy Awakenings time travel story line, but Fates is a much more emotional investment, which honestly is what Fire Emblem is all about, you want to care about the characters, because then it leave you in more of a predicament when they die near the end of a really tough level, do you take the hit or do you restart the level and hope you can do a better job.
The most important aspect though, that makes this the best game in the series, is the level design. The level design is so much better than any other game in series, and because there are so many levels this is even more impressive. The rest of the games seem pretty linear in comparison, sure there's the odd memorable level, but the ones in fates are just so well done, your not just having to strategise against the AI, but you're also battling against the changing in environments around you.
This isn't just my favourite Fire Emblem game, this is my all time favourite game. I'm not rating this game a 10 to counter balance the negative reviews, this game is 10, period.… Expand
