    A disappointing entry that proves itself incapable of overcoming the issues of its forebears - Warriors Orochi 4 is, simply put, a relic.

    Luigi's Mansion is a truly wonderful game, but the 3DS was the wrong place to port it.

    New additions, characters you already love, and the chance to sit on the Iron Throne - Reigns: Game of Thrones is well worth a play.

    The Room is always going to be good, but playing on Nintendo Switch isn't the best choice.

    ELOH is a thoroughly charming, delightfully percussive puzzler that's more concerned with rhythm and experimentation than box-ticking achievements.

    For the asking price though, it's hard not to recommend this if you've got a few pals or family members around. Like that Saturday night game of Monopoly, it's all good fun so long as someone doesn't flip the board.

    It's cruel and dark, but there's more to Grimvalor than just another Souls-game riff.
    • 76 Metascore

    The World Ends With You is a wonderful game, but this Final Remix doesn't quite to it justice.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Incredible, silky smooth fighting action paired with some incredible visuals makes this easily one of the best looking games on Switch, and quite possibly the best looking fighting game to ever grace a handheld.

    Though it's a tad short, The Gardens Between is a beautiful puzzler with some wonderfully clever ideas.

    The Midnight Sanctuary is fantastically bizarre both visually and narratively, but it won't convert you to visual novels.

    Super Mario Party is what you'd expect from the series - short bursts of fun that everyone can enjoy .
    • tbd Metascore

    Stockpile is a weighty game, but if you put the time in you're going to get a lot out of it.
    • 73 Metascore

    For fans of gacha games, Dragalia Lost is one of the best of the bunch. However, Dragalia Lost is still, at its core, more of the same.

    Wandersong is a puzzle-platformer unlike anything you've seen before, and it deserves a place on your Switch right now.
    • 71 Metascore

    FIFA 19 on Switch is a sharper, fuller package than FIFA 18. While it's a slick and playable effort, however, it feels like a job only half done, while the football itself feels a little stiff and one-dimensional.

    There's plenty to like about Hovercraft: Battle Arena, but once you've got to grips with it, there's not much else to do.

    There are some nice moments in Hooky Crook, and for the most part they're interesting enough to keep you playing.

    • 70 Critic Score
    Cube Escape: Paradox is another beguiling room-escape puzzler from Rusty Lake. It's compellingly atmospheric stuff, yet its puzzles are often frustratingly tangential.
    • 78 Metascore

    If you want to sit with friends for an evening and waste a few hours while getting wasted, this is a great way to do it.
    • 81 Metascore

    It's got a few niggles here and there, but this is a much deeper effort than anything we've seen from King before.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    There are some strong ideas here, but in the end Trixel Rocket is just too frustrating to recommend.

    Ammo Pigs: Armed and Delicious does what it sets out to do, and if retro shooters are your bag you'll love it.

    XC2: Torna - The Golden Country is a wonderful add-on to an already great game, but as a standalone experience it doesn't quite work.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Where Shadows Slumber mixes light and darkness in some intelligent and incredibly engaging ways.
    • 66 Metascore

    Cities: Skyline is sometimes frantic, sometimes peaceful, and great fun to play, but performance issues plague it at almost every turn.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: Goblin Scourge Edition is a wonderful narrative adventure with only a couple of performance issues.
    • tbd Metascore

    It might not truly capture the treacherous thrill of mountain biking, but Bike Unchained 2 is still a lot of fun.

    Meowoof has a lot more meat on its bones than most casual games like this can even dream of.

    Discovering everything that Chaos Reborn: Adventures has to offer is one of the most enjoyable parts of the game. It fills the experience with little eureka moments, while not distracting from the density of the battles. This is an expensive game, but there's so much more going on here than in pretty much any other strategy game you can grab for mobile. Is it worth it? If you're a fan of the genre than absolutely - this is without a doubt the best turn-based strategy game you can get for your phone or tablet.
