#Knack2 An entertaining game with a well rounded fun story. Great combat, which is let down at times by awkward camera mechanics. Upgrade chests feel far too spread out & the random drop element often leaves the player with an inventory full of partially complete (and thus useless) items.
#DeadCells A wonderful update on the #RogueLike gameplay, great upgrades. Tough but ultimately rewarding combat. Easy to pick up & play, but hard to master. But if dying in a game over and over again is not your thing, then this isn’t a game for you
#Wargroove An incredibly cute and well-made reimagining of the old and formerly Nintendo-exclusive Advance Wars series that doesn’t drown you in complexity like many turn-based strategy games do
#Pode Cute, adorable, great controls & wonderful music. Sometimes it’s a little hard to see what is going on when played on the switch screen (zoom would have been good). Would have been nice to be able to swap key mapping. Some tough puzzles, but fun in Co-op
#DangerZone2 I love this. It has the spirit and soul of Burnout. Big improvement on the Original #DangerZone. Controls feel a little twitchy at times and it’s a little short on maps. Some of the maps can be VERY tough, but well worth the time. I really missed music in this game.
#TitanFall2 The differences between Mech and Pilot movements feels really good. Nice selection of weaponry. A short, but very interesting story with a couple of VERY well designed missions.
#XMorphDefense Good value for money for a fun mix of tower defense and pure blasting. Can be very challenging (frustratingly so at times). Tower placement is a little complicated, so during a fight, it can get very fiddly. Great couch co-op.
#BurnoutParadiseRemastered It’s arcade open world driving at it’s greatest – the music takes you straight to Paradise City, it’s Burnout, and there’s a great selection of transports. Plenty to do, but it feels expensive for a re-master.
#Everspace Stunning visuals. Took me a while to get into it, but once it clicked, it was very easy to “just one more run” over and over again. Lots of replayability with it’s take on a “dungeon crawler in space”. It’s great fun with a friend, taking it in turns, laughing when they die hitting an asteroid.
#SuperMarioOdessey Looks gorgeous, plays well. Camera is a pain at times. Easy game & if you find it hard you’ve probably gone the wrong way. Tropes aside, it’s a fun game , plenty to do. If you’re a Mario fan, you’re going to LOVE it. But if not, then this isn’t going to change your mind
