The Nintendo eShop game-rating thread

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The Nintendo eShop game-rating thread

Hello everyone!

Maybe you know the problem: There are tons of indie games releasing on the Switch every day, but since there's no rating system in the shop and rarely reviews of those games online, it's getting hard to know if a game is good or not

That's the reason for this thread: Everybody who has played an eShop game and wants to rate and/or review it can post it into this thread. I will put the links to the reviews and the median value of the ratings into a second post, neatly sorted in alphabetic order so everybody can find the reviews of the games they like as fast as possible.

To rate the games, I suggest giving a value for your experience between 1-5, with:

5: very good, 4: good, 3: neutral, 2: bad and finally 1: very bad

Also, kindly give a second, separate rating for the multiplayer if the games has it. Having the same 1-5 rating system throughout the thread should make it easier to compare. It's certainly not perfect, but better than nothing, which incidentally is what we have right now.

You don't have to rate a game to post here, everybody is free to discuss the games rated here and to suggest improvements.

Any suggestions?

Just a few ratings for my eShop games for now, I'll follow up with some reviews at a later date.

Fallout Shelter: 3/5
Golf Story: 5/5
Plague Road: 5/5
Quest of Dungeons: 4/5
Saturday Morning RPG: 4/5
Snipperclips Plus: 3/5 Multiplayer: 4/5
The Bridge: 4/5
UnEpic: 4/5
Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap: 4/5
World Conqueror X: 2/5



Great initiative. The shop is getting more and more crowded with high quality games. Used your list and put colors to be easy to look at. Would be great to specify genre too. I have some games too, I'll add them later

World Conqueror X 2
Fallout Shelter 3
Golf Story 5
Plague Road 5
Quest of Dungeons 4

Hollow Knight 0/5
Golf Story 0/5
Stardew Valley 0/5

Reason: They're not Smash Bros Melee.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Yep something for the developers to keep in mind next time.

OT:

I only have Rime, and Little Nightmares which is sort of indie I guess even though it’s distributed by Bandai. Anyway I’d say;

  • Rime: 4/5
  • Little Nightmares 3/5

Thanks a lot, those were great ideas! I'll try to implement them right away



This is a good idea!

Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

I've only played three games so far, but all three of them are amazing games:

Sonic Mania: 4/5 (multiplayer: 2/5)
Shovel Knight: 5/5 (multiplayer: 3/5)
Hollow Knight: 5/5



Updated until here

If possible please state the genre too when posting the games, makes my job easier here

Speaking of making easier, is there a way to automatically get a color depending on the score I input?
