We’ve had a busy week here at Switch Player HQ – several of the team explored the sights and sounds of EGX 2017, getting our hands on the latest and greatest. (Our founder, Paul, seems to think that he scored a “worldie” on Fifa 18 but we all know it was a cross. Feel free to tweet him simply saying “it was a cross” to set him straight!). The news stories are a little bare this week but the reviews are still coming in thick and fast with six more Switch games to read up on. Take a look through this article to see what you may have missed this week on Switch Player!

LEGO Worlds Review

Sonic Mania Review
Sonic Mania received an awful lot of praise when it first released with fans seemingly all agreeing that the blue blur was back to his best. Should you be snapping up this game as fast as you possibly can, then? Why not take a look on our verdict here?
Beach Buggy Racing Review
Perhaps unfairly so, releasing a kart-racer on the Switch will instantly have people comparing the game to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Of course, it would take a lot to knock Mario out of pole position, but does Beach Buggy Racing stand up in it’s own right? Find out in our review!
NeuroVoider was loved by fans when it released on Steam last year. The game is a twin-stick shooter RPG that sees you shooting down evil robots with nuclear rocket launchers and we have the full run-down on whether or not you should be picking this up for your Nintendo Switch.
Another twin-stick title, Semispheres sees you controlling two characters at once on opposite sides of the screen to solve puzzle-like levels. If you want to see whether this puzzle adventure might be for you, read our full review here!
