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...

The Missing – J.J. MacField and the Island of Memories Review

The Missing – J.J. MacField and the Island of Memories Review

The Missing – J.J. MacField and the Island of Memories combined it's puzzle-platformer gameplay and narrative in a way that truly makes use of the medium and highlight's it's best potential. Difficult subject matter and a leaning toward the surreal drive a story that touches upon aspects of humanity that are rarely explored in games.

Swords and Soldiers 2: Shawarmageddon Review

Swords and Soldiers 2: Shawarmageddon Review

This is a great take on a 2D real-time strategy game, it has a good sense of humour, and most importantly; it is a lot of fun. The single-player campaign is well written, but the multi-player is where the game truly shines.

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! Review

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! Review

A refreshing new entry in the Pokémon series that serves as an entry point for new players, and offers up some interesting new challenges for veterans. Don't sleep on this just because it is different.

The Midnight Sanctuary Review

The Midnight Sanctuary Review

Overall, The Midnight Sanctuary’s mind-boggling, yet ambitious, storyline failed to impress me. The visual novel could be developed further to improve replayability and entertainment value. Kudos on trying to use 3D graphics in visual novels, but the graphics and pace of the storyline needed much more work, so that it increased the visual novel’s quality.

Diablo 3: Eternal Collection Review

Diablo 3: Eternal Collection Review

Diablo 3: Eternal Collection is everything from the last five years squeezed into a portable package. It plays brilliantly whether docked or not, and has more content than you could ever see. This is a game that is a must-play and to have access to it anywhere is almost unbelievable.

Arena of Valor Review

Arena of Valor Review

With smooth, colourful graphics and a sensible control system, Arena of Valor will definitely scratch the itch for some fast-paced 5v5 action on Switch.

My Hero One's Justice Review

My Hero One's Justice Review

My Hero One's Justice is packed with things to do and looks good while doing them. The battles themselves are fun and frenetic with the characters playing well against each other. This is probably the best arena battle game to date from any anime. Plus Ultra.

Dark Souls: Remastered Review

Dark Souls: Remastered Review

A well aged fantasy/horror action RPG, that even those who have never played before should definitely give a chance. Don't be scared off by the stories of how difficult it is. (Though also know, those stories are true.)

Bad North Review

Bad North Review

A lack of variety doesn’t mar an otherwise captivating game - it's a compelling strategy and tower defence game.

Warriors Orochi 4 Review

Warriors Orochi 4 Review

Offering up a huge selection of characters and content, Warriors Orochi 4 isn't bringing a lot of new ideas, but it is dishing out a very refined and welcoming minor evolution to the tried and tested Warriors formula.

The World Ends With You: Final Remix Review

The World Ends With You: Final Remix Review

The World Ends With You: Final Remix isn't just a long title. It is one of the best DS games reborn on a modern console. The music, the visuals, and the gameplay are all incredible, and having this cult classic come back to life is a blessing. This is an incredibly stylish RPG that demands your attention.
