Ubisoft Announce Season Pass for Mario + Rabbids

Reviews


Troll and I

Erm… It might be fair to say that our Deputy Editor, Charlie, didn’t have the best time playing this game. The phrase “Possibly the worst game to grace the Nintendo Switch” may have been used at one point and the score it received is not a pretty sight. Want to see why? Take a read of the full review here.

 

Retro City Rampage DX

Luckily, Retro City Rampage DX faired much better. Seemingly cramming a very pleasing amount of content into its pixelated world, the game is “a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying retro themed sandbox”. Read the review here and see if it takes your fancy!
