Reviews


Golf Story

Golf Story seems to have been quite the success – fans who have played the game can’t seem to heap enough praise on to it. Find out why it’s “the best sports game on the Nintendo Switch” in our full review!

 

One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition 

Mixing licensed characters from the One Piece anime and manga with combo-smashing, fighting action, One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition is hoping to win over both fans of the series, and perhaps those less familiar with the source material. Find out if it manages to do this in our review!

 

Picross S

A series that saw more releases on Nintendo 3DS than puzzle books have seen actually fully completed crosswords (probably not true), Picross S is the first Picross game to arrive on the Nintendo Switch. The question is: does it stand out from the crowd and do anything differently? Why not read up on our thoughts here?

 

Phantom Trigger

Phantom Trigger is an interesting one, combining a repetitive hack-and-slash style of gameplay with an oddly compelling and unexpected narrative. Find out if the game could be for you in our review!

 

Astro Bears Party

A party game that sees bears running around in circles trying to trip each other up with their “magical beary ribbons”, Astro Bears Party is a bit of a mad concept, but one that seems to work rather well. We’ve got the bear necessities (sorry) and more in our review here!

 

The Jackbox Party 1

A game that promises the option to have 100 players playing the same game at the same time – what!? If you’re intrigued by the prospect of some utter, party madness – read our review!
