    Sushi Striker is a diamond in the rough in Nintendo’s Switch lineup. This offbeat and peculiar puzzle game takes a ridiculous concept and manages to shape it into a shockingly deep, balanced, and varied low-key masterpiece. I was looking forward to checking this game out since it was shown off, but I never expected it to be this good. Don’t sleep on Sushi Striker, but be mindful that you’ll probably really want to eat sushi after playing it for a while.

    It’s fun title with some great RPG elements and a lot of nods and winks to the Pokemon series while still being its own thing. Nintendo has definitely once again struck gold with another first party title for the Switch.

    Addictive game mechanics and a really nice Story Mode are the best features found in this new Switch and Nintendo 3DS puzzle game.

    Sushi Striker is a very good game, addictive and fun. The controls can be sometimes a little bit weird and it can get repetitive, but it’s a pretty interesting title overall.

    One of those hidden gems that may make your summer funnier despite its repetitiveness.

    A relatively original and enjoyably bizarre puzzler, that seems more at home on 3DS than Switch but still offers plenty of seafood-themed fun for everyone.

    It almost works better in a straight TV show format than it does as a deep puzzler with RPG elements.

It's not a piece of art, although it has a fun, light-hearted and creative plot, but that's okay: this game is not made to be taken seriously. It's not the big single-player epic, but it's a near flawless action-RPG-puzzler videogame, and it fits the switch fantastically. This game, whatsoever, is not for everyone, but for those who enjoy it, it's a masterpiece. Since there hasn't really been any game like this before, I recommend anyone interested to check the free demo in the Nintendo Switch EShop( although personally I think the 3DS version is superior in almost every way besides graphics). A common complaint among people who haven't played the game is the price, but this game is well worth 50 Dollars. I've played the game non-stop(14 hours), and I'm about 20% in the story mode. There is also online play, beautiful graphics and a concept never found in any game before. (It has nothing to do with bad Match-3 mobile games). Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm definitely liking this game. The only "rush" is the 7 seconds you get to link all the sushi you can to kick your opponents a$$ lol
    The storyline is well thought out, dialog is hilarious, art style is perfect, and the voice acting fits. You can replay older levels to level up and there's no limit to how many times you can do so. If I could liken these to a game or two...I guess I'd say any match 3 or more with Pokémon (Sprites).

    What a surprise! I picked this game up, taking a gamble, and I have been nothing less than impressed. The art style is crisp, the gameplay isWhat a surprise! I picked this game up, taking a gamble, and I have been nothing less than impressed. The art style is crisp, the gameplay is fast and incredibly fun, and the music is appropriate. This is a perfect "pick up and play" puzzle game that is easy to start, with a lot of depth to discover. I truly believe this will be a hidden gem for the Switch, but hope that other players will give it a chance. There is a free demo on the eShop, I implore you....at least give the demo a try, it doesn't cost anything. Expand
