The Nintendo eShop game-rating thread

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

Well I went deep into the bargain bin this week. The first game I got was Drowining, a walking simulator, that looked like it would suck really hard. And to no surprise it sucked really hard. The second one I got was Stray Cat Doors, and this one didn't actually suck at all. In fact, it was pretty good for what it was, a short puzzle/adventure game. It only lasts about an hour but it is prized accordingly so if you have a bit of time to kill I'd recommend it.

Drowning - 0.5/5
Stray Cat Doors - 4/5

Kamiko a 3/5!? You monsters! That's a 5!
Celeste 5/5
Blaster Master Zero 5/5

Snipperclips I'd rate 5/5 for both single player and multiplayer. I love the game, and I've never had so much fun playing a co-op game in my life as I have with this one. Best game for couples I've ever had the pleasure to play with my girlfriend.

Civilization VI: 5/5

I know it has a physical copy, but it's super hard to find here, so it counts too imo

Enter the Gungeon
Single Player: 4/5
Multiplayer: 4/5

Single Player: 3/5
Multiplayer 4.5/5

It doesn't matter if it's just on the eShop or not, as long as it's also sold on the eShop

The Switch E-shop has now tons of great games! Some that I´ve played recently:

GRIS - 4.5 / 5 (Single Player) This is a gorgeous game, with a subtle, touching story and an unique approach to art style. I just wanted it to be longer...

HORIZON CHASE TURBO - 4 / 5 (Single Player) 4 / 5 (Multiplayer) Fun arcade racer, inspired by old-school games like the Top Gear series and Lotus Challenge. Lots of tracks and a fun multiplayer mode

OVERCOOKED 2 - 4 / 5 (Single Player) 5 / 5 (Multiplayer) This game is meant to be played with friends. It´s way better in multiplayer than single player. Still, both modes are really fun.

FLOOR KIDS - 4 / 5 (Both Single and Multiplayer) A nice approach to rhythm games, with a different twist where the player can choose the moves freely instead of just followin screen prompts. Very fun game with a great soundtrack by DJ Kid Koala

GRIS - 5/5

Visuals and storytelling are heavily prioritised in this game but it didn't bother me as the presentation is about as good as it gets. It's a short game but I'm glad it wasn't much longer as many games of this type becomes repetitive after a while, and I have personally experienced way too many games over the last six months that greatly overstayed their welcome.
There is one thing to consider though, in my opinion: actively going after the achievements really hurts the experience. It is best if you can ignore them, or at least wait until after you have finished the game, as searching every nook and cranny for secrets will break the flow of the game and make the experience a lot less enjoyable.

Well, another one bites the dust. This time it's The Coma: Recut, a side-scrolling horror game.

The game starts out decent but the more I played the more frustrated I got. I don't know if it was just my Switch that refused to co-operate with me but the game was unresponsive beyond belief and I often had to press a button 2-3 times before the game recognised the input. But even if that was a problem on my end, there are other problems with The Coma that makes me unable to call it a good game. This is the kind of game where you have no means of attacking the enemies so you have to dodge, run and hide, and you have the "slasher" type of enemy that lurks around and suddenly appears to chase after you. What really infuriated me was that the game often spawned the enemy right on me when entering a new area, making it extremely hard to react, and combined with the lousy input response it made for a terrible experience. You also have sound effects and music that at times are way too loud and they annoyed me so much when I tried to listen to footsteps or other sounds from enemies.
The story seemed decent and the horror element was pretty good in the beginning but the many issues turned it all into a tedious mess.

The Coma: Recut - 1.5/5

Tetris 99: 5/5
It's ridiculous how good this actually is.

Final Fantasy IX: 4.5/5
My first Final Fantasy, and I'm enjoying it. The design of the worlds is a bit.. different and difficult to navigate, but the story, music and gameplay are all great.
