Average User Score: 7.9Aug 6, 2019I enjoy Warriors games. Yes, their stories may be... ludicrous at times but the hack and slash keeps me entertained- regardless of what crossI enjoy Warriors games. Yes, their stories may be... ludicrous at times but the hack and slash keeps me entertained- regardless of what cross over we are in. I also very much like the Fire Emblem series so I was happy but anxious when I heard this was coming. Do not get me wrong, the game is fine. However, it falls back on some of the shortfalls that most warriors games do in that hack and slash and hack and slash is your only way.
Tactical Elements add slightly more depth to game
Decent character breadth
Music is fair/ good
No frame rate problems
History mode is a surprisingly good fit
A lot of the characters are very similar
They could have been more diverse in character selection (older game characters)
The Levelling system in the game is rather slow and can make stages seem extended when they do not really need to be.
Sometimes despite requesting character tactics, they are ignored.
Can drag on slightly
Despite a few tactical inclusions, lacks any real Fire Emblem feeling bar the characters themselves
In conclusion, as a warriors game, this is good, standard fare for the series but as a Fire Emblem game it falls short. I would still recommend this game to you if you are a fan of hack and slash but if you are only a fan of the Fire Emblem series you may end up disappointed.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Aug 6, 2019This game is my biggest disappointment of the year; possibly one of the biggest disappointments I have had from a video game. The gameplayThis game is my biggest disappointment of the year; possibly one of the biggest disappointments I have had from a video game. The gameplay itself is good; the core Fire Emblem gameplay is still fun and the monastery exploration is an interesting idea. However, the story is dreadful. It makes very little sense and just feels half baked. The characters themselves are mostly likeable but it all just feels very...dull. The timeskip halfway through completely put me off the game; with it feeling like the whole first half of the game was simply a waste of time. There are some highlights in the game and for those who have never played Fire Emblem before, you will probably like this game. But, it just doesn't work for me. Awakening is my favourite of all time and Fates was very good (despite the multiple stories). Three Houses tries to incorporate 4 separate routes but none of them feel right. It leads to a lot of replayability but if you don't want to play them to start with; they have failed. The main character is a lifeless shell and the story becomes so convoluted and just downright daft that I have had to stop my playthrough. I have played 38 hours of Fire Emblem Three Houses, waiting for that moment where the game clicks. It has not clicked, this game is not for me and not for fans of the older games (GBA era and before). If your new to the series, buy this game. If you're not, go in with lower expectations than I did. Then you won't end up quite as annoyed as I.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4May 6, 2018An okay Kirby game. Very easy almost to the point where the game is tedious. The gameplay is still enjoyable and adding the friend charactersAn okay Kirby game. Very easy almost to the point where the game is tedious. The gameplay is still enjoyable and adding the friend characters into the game is nice but in turn, this actually makes an already easy game, even easier. The bosses are slightly harder than the levels although the difference is minimal. If you are buying for a child, perhaps their first game, I 100% recommend this- otherwise, you may find yourself bored. It is pretty mind you...… Expand

Average User Score: 7.3Apr 27, 2018Does not compare to Setsuna.

The story is poor, the gameplay is good but it does try to jam too much in and the weighting of the game feels bizarre.

Fifa 18 on the Switch was specially designed for the system- this was never going to be the same as the PS4 version- a fact people still cannot seem to grasp. This is the best Nintendo Fifa ever. This is the best handheld Fifa ever. Personally, until I looked up what was missing in the game in comparison, I did not actually notice. It looks superb, plays wonderfully and I have had no lag or glitches. And, with enough support next years version could be even better :D… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Nov 12, 2017This game is linear. A to B complete the quests. Game Over. But, you will have damn good fun going from A to B. The game-play is fun and theyThis game is linear. A to B complete the quests. Game Over. But, you will have damn good fun going from A to B. The game-play is fun and they have found various, interesting diverse ways to make golf- a notoriously dull sport- into something engaging and entertaining. The story is funny and actually left me wanting a sequel. You never know, crazier things have happened. Also, this game is cheap- under half the price a full retail game costs. Even if you are not a sports fan, this game is worth a try; it kept me locked on my switch for hours and when I finished- part of me wanted to live through it all over again. The only drawback is the odd miss when it comes to mini games, the final course takes a fairly steep difficulty leap and that maybe, it ended slightly too abruptly. But that is all I have got.
In short, buy it!… Expand

Granted it is not going to win any awards. On the plus side, the graphics are good, the music is as memorable as ever and the story itself shows promise. It is what is done with that promise that irks me. I can see how good Sonic Forces COULD have been. The story and world set up they had here could have worked so much better. They have a whole resistance army yet the only ones fighting are Sonic (x2) and your player character. They could have integrated so many of the cast as playable characters; heck even Tails and Knuckles would have been nice before going to the extended cast. The story in places is bizarre- such as Omega's odd, completely random appearance near the end.
Regarding game play- mostly positive. However, the controls are sometimes unresponsive (not helpful in a boss fight), you can find yourself careening off the edge when a turn comes up at high speed, the game is remarkably easy and- for the grand scale they have tried to reach by staging a full on war- far, far too short.
This game could have been excellent- too bad we got bang average.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1May 19, 2017Shovel Knight on the switch is the first time I have played the series and this pack includes all the DLC as well. The game play is excellentShovel Knight on the switch is the first time I have played the series and this pack includes all the DLC as well. The game play is excellent for an indie game and a real throwback to the 'olden days.' Also, it is hard- I find myself dying a lot playing shovel knight. So, in summary, Graphics: good, Sound: Good, Game play: Good, Story: Good. I have a few gripes with certain things- such as the game play surrounding boss combat tending to take priority on the damage they cause you if you attack at the same time but otherwise the game is enjoyable enough at a reasonable price… Expand

TheThis is a very enjoyable game. It is very challenging- both online and I found myself struggling with some of the individual campaign. The voice acting is not bad but does grate on the nerves. The gameplay is solid and so are the graphics ( but who is playing tetris for the graphics?)> Works well on the go and perfect switch game for a pick up and play in 5-10 minute spurts.
