Game Review: Megadimension Neptunia VII

Game Review: Megadimension Neptunia VII

Since its launch, the Nintendo Switch has become a haven for JRPGs of all kinds, from AAA blockbusters to more niche titles that still stand out in their own way. Megadimension Neptunia VII falls under the latter, and considering that I owe it to the Neptunia series for being my gateway to the world of niche JRPGs, I was undoubtedly excited to see a main series title (and arguably one of the best ones) finally debut on the Switch. But just how well does this port on Nintendo’s hybrid console hold up?

Game Review: Catherine Full Body (Switch)

Game Review: Catherine Full Body (Switch)

Combining a mature and dark love story about the repercussions of infidelity with fast-paced puzzle-platforming may sound like a confusing recipe for disaster, but nine years ago a certain studio in ATLUS somehow managed to make it work with 2011’s Catherine. Fast-forward to the present day, and we now have Catherine: Full Body, a re-release of the bold classic that introduces an entirely new character, Rin, to the narrative, along with a plethora of new endings and gameplay extras – but just how well does this title hold up on the Nintendo Switch in 2020?

Game Review: Northgard (Switch)

Game Review: Northgard (Switch)

The Nintendo Switch has tons of games that span across a massive range of genres, from super fun platformers to addictive racing titles to classic RPGs. One genre that I’ve never really paid attention to much however has been the RTS genre. RTS (Real Time Strategy) is actually a genre I enjoy a lot but I’ve only ever really played on PC. So when Northgard made the jump to the Nintendo Switch, it felt like the right game to give the RTS genre a shot on the Switch.

Game Review: Shantae And The Seven Sirens (Switch)

Game Review: Shantae And The Seven Sirens (Switch)

The Shantae series has been around for almost twenty years and it has gone from strength to strength. The first game in the series that I played was 2014’s ‘Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse’ on the Wii U. It was a super fun game that had all the platforming goodness that I love in there. It’s been almost 4 years since the last Shantae game so to say that I have been anticipating the release of ‘Shantae and the Seven Sirens’ is a bit of an understatement.

Game Review: Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection (Switch)

Game Review: Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection (Switch)

One of my favourite games as a kid was Mega Man X for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. I would play this game religiously but for some reason, I never played any of the other Mega Mega games. Thankfully over the last few years, Capcom has been releasing ‘Legacy’ collections, which cover the entirety of the Mega Man games onto major consoles. Now, Capcom have moved onto releasing legacy collections for the Meg Man Zero collection which I have to say, I’ve never even heard of before.

Game Review: My Hero One’s Justice 2 (Switch)

Game Review: My Hero One’s Justice 2 (Switch)

Video games adapted from anime typically fall in to the curse of being shallow and My Hero One’s Justice 2 is no exception. Although there are some great anime games such as Dragon Ball FighterZ or Dragon Ball Z Kakarot that don’t fall into this curse, My Hero One’s Justice 2 is sadly not one of them. Instead, the game lacks any creativity and was clearly rushed out in order to be released during the currently airing season of the anime it’s based on. It’s quite disappointing to see that this game was just another generic anime arena fighter as a video game based on the My Hero Academia series could potentially be amazing with how unique the series is.
