Dragon Quest I, II and III (Switch) Review
Dragon Quest I, II and III on the Switch are great picks, especially if you enjoyed the recent eleventh entry and wanted to experience the origins of this great series. However, these are ports of the mobile versions with some audio and visual enhancements.
Torchlight II Review
Although it lacks mod support, Torchlight II has been ported to the Switch intact with the game’s full campaign, procedurally generated dungeons and four player co-op play. Thanks to its simple-by-design art style, the game has aged pretty well visually and is as bright and colorful as it was on the PC.
Omega Labyrinth Life Review
Omega Labyrinth Life attempts to combine genres quite daringly, as it mixes a rougelike dungeon crawler with a story-heavy JRPG, folding in a light life simulation. The game doesn’t do enough to make each fit together well enough, though. The inclusion of each hampered the others, creating a title that felt disjointed and confused.
Bitlogic: A Cyberpunk Arcade Adventure Review
Bitlogic: A Cyberpunk Arcade Adventure captures the feel of games from a bygone time, but it does so in a fashion that is almost entirely detrimental. The restrictions on aiming and movement makes combat unpleasant, and traversal is usually a matter of trial and error.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review
Fire Emblem: Three Houses does a tremendous job presenting a more immersive experience in the series’ first console entry in a decade. The three paths all present unique and compelling perspectives into the rich cast, and the Persona-like school life segments are a breath of fresh air that give players a lot more to do besides constant battling.
The Forbidden Arts Review
Anyone expecting a Zelda-esque level of role-playing or story, or Mario-level platforming will be disappointed by The Forbidden Arts, as will gamers looking forward to a lush, 3D world to explore. In fact, The Forbidden Arts is a platformer with light RPG elements, a skeletal story and an imperfect balance between its controls and its demands.
Super Mutant Alien Assault Review
Overall, though, I have to give it props, as Super Mutant Alien Assault is a game that truly surprised me. When I first started it, I thought it would be a repetitive game that would lose my attention quickly. I’m happy to say this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Switch) Review
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is an impressive game that shines especially bright on the Nintendo Switch. The game's constant sense of progression and discovery is a joy to behold, whether you're docked to a television, relaxing on the couch, or playing from somewhere else entirely.
