Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is yet another great entry in the Switch library. This one should keep RPG fans busy for quite some time. There's an insane amount of things to do and see along your journey, and battles will keep you thoroughly engaged.
While the experience might look overwhelming from the outside, the in-game tutorial is evenly paced and does a fantastic job of explaining everything without being overbearing. There's also a lot to enjoy in the story department, even if there are a few missteps along the way. All in all, if you're looking for yet another meaty Switch experience with all the RPG trappings, you should be very happy with what you find here.
Resident Evil 1 and 2 are now out on Switch and we've got video reviews for each game! I tackled Resident Evil Revelations, which you see in the first video above. For Resident Evil Revelations 2, I brought in a special guest! I may be biased, but I think his review is about a billion times better than mine. Either way, I hope you enjoy both!
- absolutely gorgeous
- fluid, fast, exciting gameplay
- great amount of challenge
- modes that keep you coming back
- mashes up multiple genre mainstays into something new and fresh
- some people might find it too challenging
RIVE is Two Tribes' final game, and they couldn't have ended things with a better experience. This is one of the most fun and frantic shooters I've played in quite some time. The game is a blast to play, a sight to behold, and a great challenge of your twitch skills. From start to finish, the game is action-packed with some awesome set-pieces and more. I really do hate to see Two Tribes go, but at least they gave us one hell of a game before all was said and done.
