Fortnite: Battle Royale Switch Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4, PC, iOS, Android

Fortnite: Battle Royale coming to Nintendo Switch was one of the big reveals from Nintendo’s E3 Direct. Sure, it was leaked and expected by the vast majority of gamers but we are talking about a title that has been so popular recently that being able to play in handheld is pure joy! Fortnite: Battle Royale has seen 2 million downloads in under 24 hours showing just how much people have wanted to play this game on Nintendo’s hybrid console but the real question is, how does it compare to all the other versions?

Runner 3 Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PC

Runner 3 very much follows on from its predecessor, Runner 2. Gone are the 8-bit graphics from the original game BIT.TRIP Runner and though that change may be seen as an aesthetic preference for some, you cannot deny how beautiful Runner 3 looks. If you played any of the Runner games then you know what you are in store for in this rhythm music platformer. Constant running from left to dodging obstacles, kicking down barriers and collecting gold bars! But hiding under the familiar first impressions are a host of new additions to the series that propel the game from challenging platformer to something else entirely.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

With the recently announced Donkey Kong DLC coming Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, this seemed like the perfect time to revisit the game and share my thoughts. This is no ordinary Mario game as the Mushroom Kingdom has been mixed together with Ubisoft’s Rabbids and for many it is unknown whether this makes for a good mix. My first impressions probably matched many others, am I going to like a Mario game that doesn’t appear to be anything like a ‘standard’ Mario game? Of course, the word standard is used loosely since Mario likes to dabble in various other activities such as Tennis, Soccer, Olympics Games amongst others. That said, my initial concerns soon dissipated. Continue reading “Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Review”

Sea Of Thieves Review

Platforms: Xbox One, PC

Most gamers may say that Microsoft have fell from grace ever since the Xbox One launched and that Sea of Thieves has been their first opportunity to regain some of their former glory by introducing a truly unique and fun exclusive game. Early impressions would indicate success for this open world pirate game considering Sea Of Thieves has become the fastest selling Xbox IP of this generation. It even topped the UK retail charts which is no mean feat considering the sales of Xbox consoles versus the PS4 and even the Switch to some degree. However, there is still mixed opinion within the gaming community as to whether this is a game worth playing. Here are my thoughts… Continue reading “Sea Of Thieves Review”

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

I was a late comer to the Nintendo Switch but after pre-ordering the console in May 2017, I instantly started looking forward to what else was coming. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 stood out to me from Nintendo’s E3 presentation last year with huge open worlds to explore and lots of anime styled action and story to delve into! Essentially, it is your standard JRPG. After getting the game in December last year, it has taken approx. 3 months to complete the game and I have needed the past week to digest my thoughts. Here is  my verdict on Xenoblade Chronicles 2! Continue reading “Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review”

Super Mario Odyssey Review

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Having spent weeks away from scrawling my thoughts about video games I have returned to share my opinions about one of the biggest game releases of 2017. Super Mario Odyssey was a hugely anticipated title for the Nintendo Switch and was the straw that broke the camel’s back for many people who were still deciding to buy the latest Nintendo console. Whilst the principle of this Mario game did not falter (save Princess Peach from Bowser) the game introduced some new concepts coupled with the traditional open world platforming that many fans have missed since the days of Super Mario Galaxy or Super Mario Sunshine. Surely, this would be a recipe for success? Continue reading “Super Mario Odyssey Review”
