Much like Aspyr's port of the first game, this new Switch port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 - The Sith Lords is perhaps the best way to play this RPG!

Coromon Review

Coromon Review

Coromon is a game filled with potential but past sinking sands and perplexing puzzles it starts to fall flat. The shake-ups do let Coromon stand on its own and create an enjoyable experience, but it could’ve evolved to be something a little more.

Elex II is an initially promising but ultimately disappointing RPG that fails to be better than the original.

The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story Review

This high-budget FMV Japanese mystery adventure is an exceptional game in almost every way, but its tedious "gameplay" sections are its largest Achilles' heel.

Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden Review

Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden Review

The Forsaken Maiden is too similar to its predecessor to declare it as being significantly improved, with the greater difference lying largely in its narrative. It is a complementary experience that fans of the first are likely to enjoy just as much.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Review

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising Review

Rising is a respectable introduction to the world of Eiyuden Chronicle, with great characters, writing, and art. However, the game structure and combat have a hard time standing on their own.

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition Review

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition Review

The Radical Dreamers Edition brings back two classics for the first time since their debut, but the Switch version leaves a lot to be desired.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Switch Review

Vanillaware has handled 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim's Switch port with the utmost care and, with some of the changes, may even be better than the PS4 version. If you love RPGs, have an affinity for excellent stories, are in the mood for some good brain exercise, or just looking for a nice 30-hour experience in gaming, look no further than 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.

Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream Review

Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream Review

Atelier Sophie 2 manages to synthesise old and new in a way befitting improvements to the franchise while leaving it comfortably with the rest of the Mysterious games. It doesn’t quite reach the heights of Atelier Ryza 2, but will still definitely keep most Atelier fans quite happy.
