    If you can ignore The Sinking City's technical failings, set the combat difficulty to easy and stick to getting embroiled in the story.

    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a fantastic remaster, filled with great courses and plenty of replayability, even if the difficulty sometimes feels off.

    Dandy Dungeon is a breath of fresh air in a time when most games take themselves too seriously. I love the music and humour here. Having already played a good amount of it on iOS, it is good to see a whole new audience get a chance to play this since the mobile version is no longer available. If you enjoy roguelites and great humour and want something that oozes charm, you need to get this.

    Atelier Lulua is one of the better games in the franchise in recent times. The Switch version is absolutely worth getting if you’ve played the Trilogy (LINK) and wanted a new game to follow those. I’m still annoyed by the lack of an English voice acting option but the fact that this release actually plays very well on Switch even in handheld makes it an easy recommendation. I’m glad Gust has finally managed making their new games work well on Switch. Hopefully future entries are this well optimised for Nintendo’s hybrid console.

    Playing on the Switch feels no different to playing on any other platform, with no console-specific features or controls. That said, it is the kind of small-scale, intimate affair that feels more at home on the handheld. Plus, you’ve the added benefit of putting it down mid car-chase to come back later.

    As is often the case the Switch version adds nothing to the experience, but the graphical style and lightning pace suit the handheld screen way better than they suit a full-sized TV. The Switch, as a result, feels like the natural home for Katana ZERO, which slots perfectly into the existing catalogue.

    As for content, sadly both this version and Resident Evil 0 along with it have arrived onto Switch with no new console specific content. For example, this version doesn’t make use of the motion control functionality that the Switch can provide which means that this version is simply a straight port of the previous remastered versions, and as such my biggest issue is the pricing. My opinion will always be that Resident Evil is absolutely worth playing, however unless the issue of portability is your main driver for choosing this version then you are perhaps better served playing it on another platform.

    With the inclusion of F2 and an even more comprehensive career mode, F1 2019 is the biggest game in the series to date and quite possibly the best.

    Despite Larry himself not changing in thirty years, Wet Dreams Don't Dry still feels relevant, self-aware and has some decent puzzles for fans of the genre too.

    It's over too soon, but while it lasts My Friend Pedro is a unique, likeable shooter and some of the best fun I've had in a while.

    Judgment is a new direction for Ryu Ga Gotoku, and whilst it isn't on the same level as Yakuza just yet, there's plenty of room to grow.

    A marriage made in heaven, Cadence of Hyrule is a toe-tapping, monster slaying groove-fest.

    A fast-paced twin-stick shooter that doesn't do a lot to stand out but offers a blast of fun in short doses.

    Miniature mechs minus the mayhem, Futurlab’s newest is bursting with tactical depth, yet lacking in variety.

    Everybody's Golf VR offers the same gentle style of golf that the previous entry had, and the golf feels pretty realistic. Unfortunately, there's a lack of modes and limited variety of courses that bring the overall experience down.

    Trover Saves the Universe is a very funny adventure game that doesn't offer the same brand of gameplay as Astro Bot Rescue Mission, but Justin Roiland's humour makes it much more appealing.

    While Home Sweet Home doesn't bring anything new to the table for first person horror puzzlers, it does stand out with the inclusion of Thai horror folklore which is truly terrifying. It's let down with a couple of bugs but it's not a bad way to spend a few hours.

    Cricket fans would be batty to miss out on this, but they should go in aware that things could still be better.

    If you’re after a royale-y good time you should look much farther than Tetris 99.

    Gato Roboto is a short, sharp burst of Metroid fun, with cats. It sounds daft, but strong level design and a few original tweaks make it well worth a look.

    Unruly Heroes is a beautiful, fun and engaging platformer with enough charm and replayability to make it a solid recommendation to anyone.

    Project Nimbus is a solid if unspectacular mecha action game that’s packed with content for a reasonable price.

    If you're after a fairly enjoyable loot-chaser to work out some of that daily stress, Chaosbane is worth a look.

    Slay the Spire is a hugely enjoyable single-player deck-builder that feels genuinely unique in its genre.

    In its current state, the Switch version has no touch screen support. This is very disappointing given the platform and its various input options are perfectly suited to games in this genre. Thimbleweed Park is the best example of how to handle bringing the genre to Switch. The Switch version of Deponia also has some inconsistency with A and B for selecting. Usually, games that see late ports to Switch and cost more have a few added extras. Over here, you aren’t getting anything extra barring the asking price.

    Price is a sticky issue, too. It’s simply too much for a game that, despite its status, is showing its age visually and mechanically.

    The Switch version of Team Sonic Racing is still a good game. It still has an interesting mechanic, addictive (but microtransaction-free) loot boxes that can make you change up the cars you race in. The story is nonsense, but the racing is fun, but it’s just such a strange game to put out when you consider the competition. Regardless, this is an alright version of a good game.

    This is a port only really worth picking up if you missed it the first time, but even then the iffy controls (sprint is the left bumper and the menu wheel is on A, for some reason best known only to Hell’s most prolific torturers) and shocking performance issues will leave you wondering what all the fuss was about. 8 years after its original release t’s still irreverent fun, though certainly hampered by iffy shooting and iffier driving, but Saints Row has always been one of those series that kind of gets a free pass because it’s so endearingly nuts.

    The variety of bosses is strong and the combat/reward loop is wonderfully addictive. If nothing else, the fact that every Behemoth, armour set and weapon can be unlocked without spending a penny makes it well worth checking out."

    Void Bastards is a fantastic strategic shooter than has a wonderfully refreshing take on the FPS genre.
