    A cooperative online multiplayer is always good, as is the improved art style. The game could be better, though, if its difficulty and challenge level had not been toned down so much and if some of its new features had a more positive impact on the experience but overall, those who did not play the original will find good reasons to have fun with Overcooked! 2.

    Yesterday Origins has the rather unusual task of bringing a point and click adventure game to the Nintendo Switch eShop...and it works, as this is a fully enjoyable game that features a short but interesting plot, with some very good dialogue lines, a well adapted control scheme and a top notch audiovisual environment. The game may not be up everyone's alley, as its slow pace may put some players off but this is a successful and interesting game of an unusual genre in consoles that is well worth of the players' attention.

    Devious Dungeon features a fairly interesting progression system, along with a healthy variety of enemies for the roguelike game that it is. Alas, it fails to deliver on the rest and the result is a game that is way too simple and unambitious for its own good, without any factors that redeem it from an overall repetitive and uninteresting experience.

    In the long run, it doesn't add anything remarkable, as the game becomes too repetitive and the level of interaction is sub par, which overall ends up harming the game's prospects.

    Flashback brings back one of the 1990s 16-bit classics in a perfect nostalgia exercise that also includes some interesting new elements. Its gameplay remains as demanding as it was, which will delight Flashback's fans and possibly frustrate more recent players who are not used to this kind of old school difficulty.

    Featuring additional content that includes some varied mechanics, as well as some recycled elements from before, this edition is certain to please those who did not get their hands on the original game.

    Go Vacation tries to be a fun summer game and it certainly has some elements going for it, such as the exploration possibilities and the multiplayer options. It's also impossible for the game to hide its origins in a previous generation and after a while it becomes apparent that Go Vacation puts quantity above quality, as the experience will soon enough become less compelling than players might think.

    Thanks to its very well adjusted difficulty curve, the amount of challenges and a well crafted multiplayer mode, Flat Heroes will undoubtedly be appreciated by fans of puzzle games, who will also be surprised to find this much content beneath such a simple looking game.

    Mega Man X Legacy Collection is a marvelous gathering of four magnificent games of the Mega Man X series, one of the best 2D platform series in the history of gaming. Featuring new gaming modes and plenty of customization options, this is certain to become an immediate hit with the fans which could have been even better if it included all the games of the Mega Man X series, rather than just the first four.

    Hollow Knight is a game everyone should play. It's not just a new pillar of the Metroidvaina genre, but on the industry as a whole. It is the best example of why the indie scene is so great and important. Experiences as special as this one are very rare. Hollow Knight is one of the best executed games in recent years.

    This rhythm game with an emotive plot features a marvelous soundtrack, as it should for a rhythm game, and a gameplay that includes several good ideas, as well as some flaws which along with the game's exaggerated price and its clear origins of a game made for mobile devices and which have not been properly improved make this a game that falls short of its real potential.

    Runbow is back to a Nintendo console and this edition for the Nintendo Switch brings a series of welcome elements, such as a simple but addictive gameplay, additional downloadable content, plenty of characters from the indie games world and online capabilities. While it feels too short when played on single player, Runbow is a very welcome arrival to the Switch catalogue.

    While its challenges are indeed interesting and its learning curve is well designed, Neverout loses in the format aspect, as well as when it comes to the repetitiveness of its art style and soundtrack.

    INSIDE features a unique art style that helps this 2D puzzle-platformer stand out in a remarkable way, helping this game become unforgettable for its players, along with its quality and engaging puzzles, as well as its challenging and long-lasting experience. Inside is another welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue, which is certain to captivate its audience.

    LIMBO presents itself with a unique art style which has a beauty of its own. Thanks to its style, high quality puzzles and challenging difficulty, LIMBO is a marvel of a game, which could be even better if its experience lasted longer and did not really as much on trial and error as it does.

    Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers is part of a series of games that had not seen a new iteration for several years and when compared to its predecessors, this certainly feels like an appealing, refined and fun experience. Unfortunately it's also too repetitive, which ends up becoming its biggest issue and its price does not seem fully justified for what this game is offering.

    Making a strength of its simplicity, it presents the player a challenging campaign, well designed levels with a perfectly appropriate difficulty level and a nicely presented and enjoyable content. While it may feel too simple at some moments, Shift Quantum is a very welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch library.

    Shining Resonance Refrain brings an RPG from the previous generation into the Nintendo Switch catalogue and while the game is full of content and features well-crafted characters and a simple battle system, it also fails to fulfil all expectations due to its cliché-ridden plot and less motivating exploration. RPG fans will still draw a valuable experience from this but Shining Resonance Refrain doesn't really stand out from other similar games already available.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It doesn't go through with all its promises, however, and the game quickly becomes repetitive, despite its decent performance on virtually every aspect, it's mostly harmed by its lack of a livelier spirit.

    Blossom Tales stands as a good example at how a game with a rather simple origin can provide a surprising amount of content and a world to explore, even if it does not reach the monumental peaks it would like to. Thanks to its fine controls and gameplay and to the satisfaction of exploration, as well as to a visually charming outlook, Blossom Tales is a very welcome addition to the adventure and exploration games of the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

    Featuring an interesting plot and an enjoyable open world, as well as the LEGO and Disney audiovisual quality, LEGO The Incredibles falls short on some aspects of its technical execution, as well as on its too simple combat system and long loading times.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    While it may not be a groundbreaking title, it's certainly effective enough at providing some fun for a few hours, even if it feels like a game that would fit better on a simpler platform, given its sense of immediacy and rather short amount of content.

    Iro Hero is certainly a very challenging and tough 2D shoot'em up whose similarities with other old-school classics of the genre will not go unnoticed. It's also a very hardcore experience, tailored mostly to players looking for a challenge of the kind, rather than for the general audience and this is where its biggest weakness lies.

    Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy lands on the Nintendo Switch with a compilation of the first three games of the Crash Bandicoot series and what a welcome addition it is to the console's catalogue. Thanks to its charms, to its immense content and to a reworked visual outlook, this trilogy will provide many hours of fun for those feeling nostalgic for these games and to those curious to discover them.

    BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle is a very welcome new addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue after a long absence of this series of fighting games from the Nintendo world. Thanks to its simple but engaging gameplay and solid online functionality, this is a good quality game that only gets tarnished by its over-reliance on downloadable content.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Critic Score
    Its overly simplistic visuals are easy to forget and its repetitive combat system does not do a lot for the player's amusement. A missed opportunity to make something more memorable that could rival the original game.

    Octopath Traveler is a marvelous JRPG that will throw the players into eight individual story lines and allow for a long, rewarding exploration with a stunnning visual background and a fantastic soundtrack. While it takes a while until its qualities really become visible, this is certainly an essential game for fans of classic RPG formulas.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is a wonderfully-executed port of an unexpected spin-off starring Toad. Thanks to its marvelous level design, camera orientation and delightful audiovisual presentation, Captain Toad is certain to bring some very welcome charm and fun to the growing catalogue of the Nintendo Switch.

    ATOMINE is a twin-stick shooter for the Nintendo Switch and as it may suggest, it does not venture into any new paths for the console. While its plot is original, its gameplay is less so but it's competent, nevertheless. With a minimalist visual component and a good variety of weapons and enemies, ATOMINE has enough to keep the player's attention for a while, until the overall feeling of repetitiveness takes over.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Thanks to its extremely direct control system, anyone can pick it up and play it. The problem is, the game is too simple for its own good and quickly enough, it becomes too repetitive, forcing the players to manage their time more wisely lest they end up getting tired of it.
