GoNintendo Video Review - Mario Party: The Top 100

If you like what you see, we'd love to have you subscribe!

Positives

- overall great collection of games
- single-card download play
- still fun with multiple players

Negatives

- short on modes
- limited options for those modes
- single player is a drag

Final Word

Mario Party: The Top 100 does provide some fun, as long as you have friends at your side. The single-player content isn't really engaging, and is fairly bare bones. Single card download play means it's easy for friends to get in on the action, but the modes offered feel limited. The board game play is stripped down, decathlon options use the same games every single time, and other modes are light on content. There's fun to be had, but you have to keep expectations very much in check.

I don't get where EDGE is coming from with that Golf Story review. I couldn't disagree with that number more! Those of you who picked up the game, how do you feel?

GoNintendo Video Review - Doom


Positives

- technically impressive
- core gameplay remains completely intact
- game feels fast and plays smooth
- amazing soundtrack
- a blast to play

Negatives

- 30fps as compared to other versions
- minor visual downgrades
- a very small amount of minor framerate hiccups

Final Word

Doom on Switch is a technical marvel. I have no idea how Bethesda and Panic Button pulled it off. There are some visual downgrades and a lower framerate, but by and large, this is an incredibly impressive package. Most importantly, the game feels just as much fun as when I played on PS4. If you missed out on Doom the first time around, there's no way you should pass up the Switch version. Just as with the other versions, Doom on Switch is all-out insanity, total chaos, and a ridiculously fun game to play.

Tamagotchi no Puchi Puchi Omisechi: Ninki no Omise Atsume Maseta (3DS) – 8/8/7/7 [30/40]

Super Mario Odyssey sells 115,000 units in France,


Super Mario Odyssey continues its fast sales figures in France, as it has already sold more than 115,000 copies during its first week. For comparison's sake, Breath of the Wild sold 97,000 copies during the same period of time back during the Switch's launch. Additionally, Super Mario 3D World sold 80,000 copies during its first week, making Super Mario Odyssey have a sales number nearly 1.5x greater. Let's hope these high sales numbers continue!

Sonic Forces - full Famitsu review details

1st reviewer: This Sonic is aimed for adults with a hype story that opens with a serious development and has allies and enemies throughout the series gathering. In addition to the hearty high-speed actions on both 3D stages where you go deep and 2D side-scrolling stages, this game has an exclusive fun factor with usage of weapons and a playthrough where you can switch between up to 3 characters. You can create an Avatar as the player’s personification, and it’s also nice that they can be freely customized. 9

2nd reviewer: The design that retains the deep replay value and challenges while catching up on the exhilarating and speedy feels are amazing, as it allows anyone to feel good when playing it. You can create your own personification with the Avatar, and having them fight together with Sonic also gives freshness; the actions that use Wispons are also interesting. In stages where Sonic and the Avatar work together, the W.Boost has a pleasant feel in the dash, and the lovely BGMs fit every place and will raise your tension. 9

3rd reviewer: The dramatic [story] development is nice, since it once again recognizes the coolness of Sonic. The gimmicks that have excellent speedy feels, and the smooth transition from 3D to side-scrolling is also cool. Even in the same area, when the characters and gimmicks change you will feel a different sensation in playing it. With the Avatar-exclusive weapons you can taste the exhilaration of mowing enemies, and the tricky movement abilities are also interesting. There is also a variation of costumes. For the Classic Sonic, being able to use the Dash that originated from Sonic Mania is also nice. 9

4th reviewer: By implementing the Avatar Character, it has an uniqueness which is enjoying special movement and attack methods that Sonic doesn’t have. You can taste a sensation of playing [the game] that’s different from the past series, and the gameplay breadth also got larger. This game has an impression of getting closer to a straight high-speed action, and you can fully feel the exhilaration even more easily. I don’t deny Sonic’s uniqueness of “becoming complicated due to getting too fast,” but this game is well done to tightly stuff in strategy with the epitome of action. 8
