The Best Nintendo Switch Games

The Wii-U may have been a disappointment for Nintendo - at least in terms of sales, but the Switch more than makes up for that. The cross-over console that is as much handheld as it is a big screen TV gaming device it also features the strongest first-party games of any plaftorm.

Any console that sports Mario and Zelda amongst its gaming heroes is always going to have loads of quality games. Here are the best we've seen so far...

Warriors Orochi 4: Ultimate Review

Loud, colourful, and chaotic. Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is a more than worthy addition to the long-running, entertaining franchise.

Our Rating: 8/10

Two Point Hospital Review

Two Point Hospital is entertaining, quirky and very funny. It has a nice learning curve and its gameplay never gets stale. It improves on the game that influenced it in most areas and does not try to re-invent what was a good game to start with. I really enjoyed it a lot and I think most people will to.

Our Rating: 9/10

Thoth Review

Colorful, chaotic geometry simultaneous made me want to run to the hills and try "just one more time" when playing through Thoth. Excellently polished game that deserves a spot on everyone's Nintendo Switch without a doubt.

Our Rating: 8/10

140 Review

Excellent rhythm game that has truly stood the test of time. At the low price point, it is hard not to recommend 140 for any Nintendo Switch owner looking for an enjoyable jaunt through a colorful beat.

Our Rating: 8/10

SuperEpic Review

SuperEpic's satirical style might not be for everyone, but if you are OK with that aspect then this is an excellent addition to the ever growing Metroidvania genre. Graphics, soundtrack, and gameplay fit together beautifully, making SuperEpic difficult to put down.

Our Rating: 8/10

Civilization 6 - Console Editon Review

A brilliant port and a brilliant game. There aren't any real issues with the game whatsoever and nothing that would put you off purchasing it. If you are a fan of the series or even interested in the Civilization series, it is a must buy!

Our Rating: 9/10

Gris Review

This is the first time I have given a game 10/10. I said I never would give a game that score but I cannot find anything bad to say about Gris. Its near-perfect. Brilliant art style, beautiful music and brilliant gameplay. It all combines into a controllable watercolour of pure joy. Just go and play it now, I wish I could experience it again for the first time.

Our Rating: 10/10

Pokémon Shield Review Review

Bad press aside, I found Pokemon Shield to be a solid entry in the Pokemon franchise. If only the difficulty was a bit elevated for seasoned players.

Our Rating: 9/10

Jackbox Party Pack 6 Review

Jackbox Party Pack 6 is an enjoyable set of party games, albeit one that probably needs an audience at 16-35 years old to get the most out of it. It doesn’t have the raw humour or appeal that, say, Party Packs 2 and 3 embody, but it’s still a solid title in its own right.

Our Rating: 8/10

New Super Lucky's Tale Review

New Super Lucky's Tale is a delight to play, and I strongly encourage young and old alike to give it a try. Just make sure you are patient with loading screens...

Our Rating: 8/10

Sparklite Review

Though levels are procedurally generated, Sparklite succeeds in building a cohesive world that feels as though it has been carefully designed, making it a great entry point for those apprehensive about this trait of roguelikes.

Our Rating: 8/10

Luigi's Mansion 3 Review

Despite a few niggling control and camera issues, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is a world of fun, and full of Nintendo's iconic style and substance. It builds on what makes the series great, and is easily one of the best games of 2019. An essential purchase for every Switch owner!

Our Rating: 9/10

Ring Fit Adventure Review

Ring Fit Adventure is not just an excellent fitness game, but the perfect companion to achieving a healthy lifestyle. Between making exercise fun and enjoyable with the battle system and innovative traversal options, and the regular tips and advice that it gives, Ring Fit Adventure is constantly working towards helping you better yourself physically, one day at a time. A must-have for gamers of every fitness level.

Our Rating: 10/10

Travis Strikes Again : No More Heroes - Complete Edition Review

Travis Strikes Again delivers a meaningful experience through meaningless actions. Its hyperactive changes of style and fun combat do plenty to curb some intentionally frustrating design.

Our Rating: 8/10

Overwatch: Legendary Edition Switch Review

Overwatch is another great port for the Nintendo Switch, it runs great, looks great and is a lot of fun to boot. There is a lot more content to experience than when the game first launched and more to keep you invested. I really enjoy playing this game on the Switch and its perfect for short bursts of fun in handheld mode.

Our Rating: 9/10

Little Town Hero Review

Little Town Hero is a refreshing take on the turn-based RPG genre, with gorgeous visuals, a perfect soundtrack, and endearing characters. If the tedium of combat was tuned a bit, this would be a 10 out of 10 hands down.

Our Rating: 9/10

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition Switch Review

Its amazing what has been done with this portable Witcher 3 port. Yes the graphics are downgraded, yes it does not look as good as other versions but it is a well running portable version of a great RPG. You get a lot of game for your money and it is well worth your time and effort.

Our Rating: 9/10

Valfaris Review

If you are willing to brave the chaotic difficulty and dystopian grittiness, Valfaris is absolutely worth every moment!

Our Rating: 10/10

Indivisible Review

Indivisible is a gorgeous game that beautifully blends genres to create an engaging, exciting experience. This is a pleasantly refreshing take on a much reproduced gaming formula.

Our Rating: 10/10

Trine 4 : The Nightmare Prince Review

A mesmerising co-op platformer with gorgeous artwork, Trine 4 has a dreamlike fluidity to its gameplay, an enchanting atmosphere and innovative physics-based puzzles, despite the sometimes underwhelming combat.
