Clubhouse Games continues Nintendo's tradition of family fun, bringing together different and customizable games, with so many different ways to play. There's something for everyone included.
Not only does Huntdown perfect what's been done in 2D shooters, it offers several new ways forward for the genre. A retro-minded tour-de-force that feels right at home in 2020.
Though a bit thin on content, Brigandine: The Legend of Runersia offers a solid tactical experience with in-depth mechanics that hardocre and casual fans alike may enjoy.
WIth a fantastic soundtrack and brightly colored environments, this wacky “skateboating” game captures a wonderful arcade skateboarding experience. The Campaign, however, can harsh the synthwave buzz.
Court of the Dead Dark Harvest is a tight package. The components look fantastic and the component count is low enough to make it extremely portable. Games are fast and balanced with all player counts between 3 and 6. The rules are light and straight-forward and games are fast with no timing issues or confusing rules combinations. There is player elimination, but that does speed up the end game, so it doesn't cause a huge issue with players waiting around. Dark Harvest grabs the Court of the Dead theme by the throat and doesn't let go.
The Isle of Armor is a short adventure on a small stretch of land. But, with new features, the expanded Pokedex, and a beautiful wild area, it's hard not to suggest it for anyone with the base game.
A clunky adventure that will only appeal to hardcore fans thanks to its antiquated gameplay and ho-hum additions.
The Academy is a mess of a game, with terrible puzzles, characters and plot. Don't bother.
Thanks to a moody atmosphere and precise mechanics, West of Dead perfectly wraps the tense feeling of cover shooting around a solid roguelike core.
King of Tokyo is a lot of fun. It's extremely easy to learn for players of any age or skill level (the rulebook is extremely short with very detailed pictures and examples, and our description above is enough for you to start playing and pick up the fine details as you play). It's quick, and the components, especially in the Dark Edition, look stunning and are extremely durable. It's very light for easy transportation and doesn't require a lot of table space. While the Dark Edition doesn't add a lot beyond visuals, it's limited nature, extra wickedness rules and incredible looking components mean that even owners King of Tokyo should find a place for this.
Waking tries to be a very unique experience, but all it manages to do is be way too long, frustrating, and unintentionally hilarious
While it comes in a small package the fun core gameplay and unexpected storytelling is worth anyone trying out, especially if you're into puzzle platformers. While Evan's Remains never gets truly difficult it still leaves the player wanting more past the credits.
By building a fantastic story filled with a deep cast of characters Persona 4 Golden manages to truly invite you into its world. While at times peaks and troughs in gameplay can be jarring the complete package is one any JRPG fan should turn their hand to.
A solid real-time strategy experience that provides a fair challenge for players of all skillsets
Though the board game its based upon is one of the best current games in the market, this digital implementation is so full of bugs and poor design choices that it seems like Loki must have had a hand in its development.
Beyond Blue is an entertaining diversion for a few hours. Unfortunately, its fun gameplay is held back by its small scale and clunky writing.
Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition gives a classic a makeover, and helps touch up some areas that haven't aged as well.
Disintegration's meaty shooter campaign invites players into a unique world that's well worth exploring, but quirks in its gameplay and storytelling hold it back from true greatness.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath's story expansion and new characters add the cherry on top of NetherRealm's fighting game sundae.
Crumbling World is an utter disappointment. What appears to be an exciting experiment or possible indie gem turns out to be quite the opposite.
Liberated tries so hard to rock the comic book aesthetic while telling a story about Big Brother. Sadly, it mostly just falls flat thanks to bad gameplay and crummy moments.
Neversong pulls inspiration from many great works to create an equally wholesome and terrifying examination of human guilt.
If Found... is a visually impressive and deeply personal experience that centers on emotional resonance above all else
Sludge Life offers a very solid first-person platforming experience wrapped in a quirky, unique aesthetic. Its lack of challenge and brevity may put some off, but it's a wild and wonderful trip that deserves to be experienced.
