The Switch eShop is overwhelming and missing many features like the ability to rate games.
NSG Reviews provides a forum for the gaming community to rate and review their Switch library as well as to find reviews for every game in the Switch eShop.
A fun bullet-**** that helps you learn vocab words in different languages while avoiding blaster fire. A really great idea. I do wish you could make your own lists though. It'd be perfect for flash cards.
I ADORED Frederic 1 and 2 so I was so excited to play 3. I was terribly dissapointed. They tried to fix a couple of the quirks of 1 and 2 but definitely ended up with a worse game. I haven't finished it which I feel guilty about but I'm really just not feeling it.
Almost cried on my first playthrough of this and have been having trouble bringing myself to finish my second but I also can't delete it from my switch. It brings attention to a really intense, very real issue.
Fun little platforming. Pretty simple but it's nice that they have essentially two different minigames in one. There are some levels where you're on rails where your dog is pulling you along and there are some where you have more freedom to move. They're all fun regardless.
It's a lot like Tenchu but with super powers. It's great sneaking around trying to kill people quietly or perhaps trying to go pacifist on a level. It's terrifying getting caught regardless and the enemies are really strong. You are not meant to go into this guns blazing, you'll probably die a lot if you do as i did.
Great game with a surprisingly interesting story mode. A good selection of rangers and villains though there are a few odd exceptions. I thought it was great that they're including street fighter characters as dlc, it fits with the gameplay style well enough.
A little short on options for the price. Everyone loves pacman digdug and galaga and it's cool to have pacman vs. The other games are lesser known but all pretty fun. But these games individully are probably not worth 6 dollars a piece which is basically what you're paying for if you buy this at full price.
Great fun, should always have one version of jackbox party on switch because someone at the (real) party is always going to want to play. That person is often me. It's the same review as 2 basically. I don't really have any preference for the minigame. They're all great, it's just a matter of what you're in the mood for.
I just reviewed another brick breaker andit's basically the same review. I don't reall love the aesthetic of the game and there aren't enough music tracks but the core brick breaker itself is pretty cool. This version also does some neat things like adding in levels where you can't let the ball touch the top or the bottom.
Not only is the rhythm game itself perfect, with similarly perfect music, but the characters and references are amazing too! The dlc/after game isn't as great as the main game but that's moreso because I was spoiled by how much I loved the dialogue and story references. The postgame is more of an arcade thing.
It is a very basic game and it plays the nyan cat theme song on a loop. It really bothers me that the loop isn't perfect so it just kinda randomly stops and starts again. The backgrounds are a bit basic and there isn't much incentive to play once you've collected everything. I've played 5 hours of this. It's really great if you're feeling like simple stupid, mindless fun.
No complaints here. This was apparently one of the games that helped bring indies to the level of popularity that their at now and I'm so thankful for that. This game definitely stands alone, traversing different environments, shooting everything in sight pretty cool dialogue great weapons to choose from and a pretty surprisingly mysterious and complex story.
I honestly got it for sonic but the other games on here definintely warrant some attention. Trying to get through the fighting games, the rpg. This collection is missing some key games like echo and sonic 3 but it definitely has enough to keep one entertained.
I didn't know most of these characters before I started but each have such interesting and diverse movesets that I have played almost all of the games they came from. This is a pretty accessible game with simple inputs to do special moves like side special and up special. The skill ceiling is really high though. I wish this was more popular but it's unfortunately pretty hard to find people online. I never have at least.
Fun to play through the story mode and it's got that old-arcade style difficulty. The type that forces you to either get good or pay a bunch of coins. I am not good but I also am not playing this in an arcade cabinet so I'm having fun with it. The port itself gives a bunch of options like creating save data, seeing online rankings, and button mapping.
This game also added a third dimension to the 2d fighting game. You can move out of the way of attacks which, if done properly can leave opponents open. Though, facing computers, it's usually me that's getting left open.
I felt like I was trying to save a real person and was emotionally destroyed when I failed the first time. The puzzles start off easy enough but they can get really tough towards the end. You could cheat and look up the answer to some but I feel that takes away from the experience of it all.
My friends and I love playing this game. It's super fast paced, reasonably easy to pick up but it's also not a game that I try to optimize so it works out alright whenever someone new says their interested in giving it a go. I still beat them usually but they have fun ya know?
Objectively better than the first and the first was one of my favorite games of all time. The platforming is great, the character, enemy, and level designs really draw you in. It really does feel like what would happen if an indie studio tried to make classic castlevania today, which is basically exactly what happened and how they want us to feel about it so all good all around. The new characters they added in this one are great too. I heard that the devs kept hearing from beta testers that the Corgi character was too busted and they loved it so they left it in so now I love it too.
It's the old nokia game, snake with a few extra bells and whistles. The biggest new feature is the two player mode but I prefer to keep it simple and just play through some good old fashioned Snake. I wish there were some options to change the graphical style though, I don't always love the one they chose. It'd be cool if they had the option to use the Nokia version or even just different backgrounds.
This game is loads of fun. It moves well and each character feels unique and fun to play. The online is about as rough if not worse than smash ultimate and the story mode doesn't really do it for me especially since the character designs are so interesting and invite deeper story telling. I'm also a bit bummed that they couldn't include steam workshop but I understand that's too hard for this port. I'm excited about the new free characters their bringing over too and it looks like they're trying to revamp their online. Oh and the tetherball game is pretty fun.
TL;DR: Really great fighting game, not too much to do outside of that though.
It's great to feel like a member of the survey corps and this game does that for me. You get to customize your own character and play through the events of AOT/SNK up until the end of season 2. There is a simple joy, also exploited by db xenoverse in seeing yourself as a character in your favorite stories and this game fulfills that. The feeling of flying through the air, killing titans when you get into a good zone is awesome too.
It's good to know where a fighting game series comes from so for the history this is a fun game but it's later entries are loads more refined. I personally started with FF 3 so it was a bit jarring having very similar controls but all kinda unpolished in comparison.
It's like if Animal Crossing was an action RPG. It's great, you get to build your community, find resources to keep everyone alive, and try to discover the mystery of this Blue-haired girl. The plot definitely kept me interested and I really grew to like and care about most of the characters. There are some really bad frame rate problems with some of the monsters (see also: pokemon legends Arceus trailer) but it's still a really fun game 5/5 stars.
It's a cool fighting game with nice mechanics. It's awesome that it's free to play and there are a lot of cool ideas with the different characters. There's also a really interesting blocking mechanic that adds a layer of depth and thought.
It's a fun, simple beatemup. Nothing mindblowing for sure but if you grab it on sale, you'll definitely have fun with it. The different combos that you can string are pretty satisfying. It looks like a pretty early/very late ps2 game but it's a good game if you get over that.
Punishingly hard. I haven't even got past the first level yet and I've played it for hours. It's a remake of an old game so it definitely has that aesthetic. Very simple controls. Shoot, don't get shot, get glowy power-ups.
The trailer for this game was super weird and disappointing during an already (for me) underwhelming E3. So imagine my surprise when I give it a go and it turns out to be one of my favorite sports-based games ever. I haven't played it a lot (joycon drift sucks the fun out of it a little) but this is a game worth playing.
As someone who used to play bushido blade this game spoke to my soul. It's great fun to show people who are just hanging out and the various arcade modes are fun little side projects to do often with the high stakes of you only get "One Strike"
I got this game during the pandemic so I wasn't able to play with friends but I could tell how fun it was and I could feel Celeste's influence on the game just through playing the arcadey/gauntlet/story mode. I'm excited to try it out with real people.
It's a tricky one. I've been playing around with one and two and I've played all of them. I don't know how long it's going to take to beat but it'll be awhile. Only real gripe is that 1 is pretty unpolished compared to 2 on but it's also good to see where the game came from and it is fun in its own right.
Yeah it's interesting enough. I actually think the artstyle was cool, I just wish they leaned into it a bit heavier. Made the whole thing look basically more like Final Fantasy VII (the original). Expanding on that I thought thebattle system was okay considering the compramises they mad, but honestly, I think I would've prefered it if they tried to do it turn based or something. Something that differentiates it more from FF XV because otherwise why wouldn't I just play that? (Besides the fact that it's not on switch)
I was having trouble deciding whether I like this or Hades more but it doesn't really matter. This game is amazing, the story was great, the flow of gameplay and the constant flow of customization that is encouraged by the games' health system (plus of course the music dear *** the music). One of my favorite games that I own. Though I'm not nearly as incentivized to replay it as I am with Hades but that's just the nature of the game.
It's Hulu. You use it if you pay the subscription fee of course. Hulu is definitely better than it used to be. It has more shows that I'm into and the ads don't feel as intrusive. I watched most of attack on titan season 4 on my switch and that was great1
It's super similar to fire emblem and advanced wars. I haven't finished it yet, it's pretty hard an pretty long but the characters are really cool and there's a bunch of side content like making your own campaigns and arcade mode.
I think this game is really underrated. It's story is really good, creating your own DBZ character and having them interact with your favorite characters is great. It's super rewarding to learn new moves and skills, it really does feel like you are immersed in the world.
It's great. Each game has it's quirks, 3 is closest to being a modern game with a pretty good sized roster. 1 gets a bit annoying with having to collect scrolls and points to advance the story but I'm definitely willing to look past that. The game makes you feel like a shinobi.
If you like any street fighter before the 2000's this game is for you. It's a great collection of a bunch of different street fighter games and many of them have online ranked play available. One of my favorite features is that you can play arcade mode while you're waiting for a match. Definitely the most comprehensive SF collection on switch.
This game was really frustrating. It was a perfect game, the gameplay was unique and interesting, the story kept me on my toes, the characters were great, the art was awesome. The ending really missed the mark though. It feels like it ended too early. The apparently patched in a second ending to try to cover some of their bases but it just didn't work for me. I'm giving this game 4 stars because that's how good it was. I feel like a sequel would be able to fix the weird ending maybe.
Top three greatest Dragon Ball games of all time. The gameplay itself is great, the online has died down a bit but that's alright if you're willing to play with computers or have other people around interested in this type of game.
I almost gave this game 4 stars because that story was executed pretty weirdly at times but in the end it's a fighting game first so I gave it some leeway there.
I definitely don't love it as much as I used to as a kid which hurt a little. Regardless, I'm having fun playing it. It does a great job of taking you through the world of Harry Potter and it integrates the Lego aspect beautifully.
It's a really solid fighter and it's cool that got a crossover from four different series. My only confusion is how to progress the main story. I'm stuck at 80 percent completion and the game hasn't told me what I'm missing. Oh yeah, the story can get crazy heavy and repetitive with the dialogue but you have the option to skip it so it's not too bad.
One of the best looking games I've played on the switch. There's really no need for a new F-Zero this is it. You're hurtling down these crazy tracks at ridiculous speeds. At least you think that's ridiculous speed until you decide to try the next two harder/faster modes and you learn what real speed is.
Stellar game. A great homage to past castlevanias with none of the annoyances. It feels so smooth, switching from character to character, hopping place to place. This game is hard but that just makes it feel better when you beat every boss. Also S tier music
This is how video games were meant to be made and played. The characters are amazing, I feel emotionally attatched to the main character's escape attempts. The usual frustration with rogue-likes is gone since dying is how you progress the story. Darren Korb strikes again with a banger soundtrack. Good riddance is such a great song I can't wait for you to hear it when you buy this game.
Yeah this is a basic, twinstick shooter, it's pretty serviceable, it's free, and it gives some facts about animal rights violations in the real-world. It is PETA which has had their fair share of controversy so I would look up some of the facts up in the game for yourself, but I couldn't find anything inaccurate with a quick google search here or there.
Yeah it makes sense. Tetris 99, Mario 99 (RIP In Peace), and now Pac-Man 99. The "99" formula just seems to work really well, giving these classics that everyone loves just a little bit of extra complexity and depth. The problem inherent to battle royales is that if you suck, you're going to know that you suck. And I am not great at Pac Man. Tetris 99 is more my speed.
A pretty cool enough idea. I haven;t bought any of the games outside of the ones included with the free game. The free games are pretty good for sure but they're nothing mind-blowing. It's cool that you can pick which individual games in the collection that you want to buy, kinda like it's own little Virtual Console. I also have the Sega Genesis classic collection on switch and it's nice to have all of those games but, really, I only play Sonic and maybe a few more if I'm in the mood.
It's really cool to see where basically every JRPG after this came from. Sure some of it is pretty archaic, but that definitely adds to the charm of it all and I found myself actually enjoying the backtracking. Grinding is a MUST. Whether or not you choose to do it, if you go into an area where you aren't high enough level, you might be able to get through one or two enemies if you're really good but you absolutely will get killed eventually if you don't turn back soon. I've heard some people complain about this version's artstyle and I kinda get it. It didn't bother me too much but I docked a few points from graphics because I felt it could have looked better.
The colors! The music! This game is a trip. It's kindof like a rhythm game but also kinda like an on-rails shooter, and kinof a racing game. It definitely bends genres and I love it. I just wish it was longer, but there is pretty good replay value. You may also notice the narrator has a familiar voice.
I adore this game! The humor is great! The gameplay is pretty simple puzzle/high score type of game. And there's endless replayability with a random mode that's unlocked part-way through the game. It's a grid-based game where you destroy zombies as magical girls in as few turns as possible. You earn a currency from defeating those zombies quickly and you can spend it on getting either more time off or more "dollars" both of which help you unlock stories and fun NPC's. I've played this game more than most of my others.
Absolutely holds up. Cell shaded art will never look bad regardless of how old it gets Okami is goregeous. It's fun wandering around. I don't know if I love that there isn't a run button but that's just a personal gripe, you sprint after jogging for a few seconds.
The game isn't as good when it becomes open world. Maybe it's just too much of a departure from what I loved about it, straightforward platforming with a bunch of cool innovations. Regardless4.5/5 stars but this system doesn;t let me do fractionals.
I love Paladins. One of my most played games on the system, I originally got into it since switch didn't have overwatch and I saw this probably on alpharad back in 2018 and I played far too much of it. I credit this game with giving me something to do during sleepless insomnia filled nights. Though the insomnia was typically unrelated to the addictiveness of the game.
I'd rather play smash but this a fun simalacrum and it's free. I pick it up here and there if I'm tired of smash and it's good in it's own right but it's not my favorite for sure. The online is a lot better though.
I actually like COTM better than ROTN which is the actual, like, cannon game that they spent years on but I do love this game. It's really fun, I like the adventure of it backtracking isn't really annoying to me. There are also a bunch of different weapons interesting enemies and cool powers.
Switch version is kinda meh but I love AC3 and this is my fist time playing the PSP AC game. SEverely underrated and it makes the cost of the game more worth it. Also, this and the other AC game regularaly goes on sale please don't buy it full price.
Concept is great, music is great, music variations are great, post game is extremely challenging but so much fun. Story does what it needs to do. Would love a sequel but perhaps I should first play through all of the characters.
Graphics on switch are a bit rough, cutscenes aren't great. Mortal Kombat is still Mortal Kombat and it's great but the incessant push to buy other costumes and characters is really distracting and annoying. The Krypt isn't great either.
It's a rogue-like. If you like rogue-likes this does what rogue-likes do. It's oppressively hard and it can be frustrating not making real progress for a while but sticking with it and getting to the next stage is a reward in and of itself.
It was lame that this was limited release and that it was 60 dollars. I'd never played any of these games before and I'm having trouble getting into them and understanding the appeal. Maybe 3d Mario just isn't for me?
Can't believe I slept on this game for so long. I feel so free, the stories are so cool, there are so so many side-quests, you wander around, you will find something that you haven't seen or done before. It's actually absurd.
I hope more old RPG's get redone in this style. I love this game. It's a bit hard especially since I'm relatively committed to avoiding grinding but it's really cool and the individual characters' stories are pretty interesting. Some of the character interactions didn't land as well since there basically are 8 individual stories lines with little overlap but that also shows their commitment to the gameplay model which kinda works.
One of my most played games. The recent updates have been a bit disappointing and not having Virtual Console to supplement is a bit sad but, hey, it's Mario, Zelda, Metroid, OG Donkey Kong, and it's free if you have online.
WELL CUPHEAD AND HIS PAL MUGMAN! THEY LIKE TO ROLL THE DICE! BY CHANCE THEY CAME 'PON DEVIL'S GAME AND GOSH THEY PAID THE PRICE! PAID THE PRICE! AND NOW THEY'RE FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES ON A MISSION FRAUGHT WITH DREAD! AND IF THEY PROCEED BUT DON'T SUCCEED, WEEELLLLL THE DEVIL WILL TAKE THEIR HEADS! 10/10 For that song alone and 10/10 for the rest of the game. Extremely, mind-numbingly hard, but so beautiful and so much fun!
It's got some pretty cool hits, DK, Metroid, Zelda. I think I would be more okay with this if it was in conjunction with a Virtual Console option. These free games as an incentive for Nintendo Switch Online + the opportunity to play the games that had been available to purchase on the Wii and WiiU VC would be awesome. I'm honestly vaguely considering buying a WiiU mostly for that.
Definitely the worst pokemon game that I've ever played (didn't play the 3ds games). It's still pretty fun but the story was really awful. I don't mind pokemon not having much of a story but if it does have one it should be good. There is no basegame postgame content. The DLC was cool enough but the 60 base game + 30 DLC = 90? This was no 90 dollar game.
Really cool concept. Every possible, conceivable, 2d Mario game exists because of this. I don't play this as much anymore but whether you're into making or playing, if you like Mario this is for you. Online is a bit rough.
