More must-have games for your Switch

I recently gave some recommendations on Switch games. The all-rounder console does still have some surprises up its sleeve, however. Especially when it comes to indie games. So gather round and witness the second round of our glorious Switch extravaganza!

My colleague Phil and I have added the first article in this series (in German) here.

«Trials Rising»

I love Trials. I used to be fascinated by the tricks and stunts performed by motorcyclists on Eurosport. To be able to re-enact them myself from the comfort of my own home was a dream come true. And thanks to the Switch, not even the train or bus will be safe from your style. Even though the game is nigh on impossible without bumper buttons – my biggest complaint about the Switch. Accurate throttling is extremely challenging and makes me scream with rage when it doesn’t work. The people I commute to work with can attest to this.

Trials Rising is the latest part of the Trials success story. At the core of the game is still the breathtaking action of the franchise paired with a stronger competition and a fresh look and brand new game elements. This makes Trials Rising the biggest and most ambitious title in the series to date.

«Owlboy»

«Owlboy» tells the story of a mute half-owl half-boy called Otus. He’s clumsy and awkward, as can be expected. He also isn’t the most confident of animal-men. A real relatable everyman hero, then. This platformer was in development for about ten years. And you can tell. It’s been thought through to the nth-degree, and pixelated Otus’ animation is sheer genius.

«Golf Story»

I’ve loved Golf simulators since «Golf» on the NES. It’s just fun to watch balls roll around a virtual green. Games developed and became more complex, which led to the implementation of role-play elements. «Golf Story» perfects this principle and nicely packs it into a story about a nobody becoming a golf legend. The gameplay is simple, as it often is with golf games. You choose your club, aim for the target and press the button at the right time. The goal isn’t always the whole in «Golf Story», however. Quests have you thawing frozen people with a burning golf ball, and of course, Disc Golf makes a return.

«Undertale»

Haven’t had enough of indie games? Neither have I. I enjoy «Undertale»’s Pacifist Run the most. What’s that, I hear you ask? You can complete this RPG without ever attacking anyone. Instead of attacking, you can select Act and interact with enemies in a friendly way. Depending on how you behave yourself, your foe will step back and solve the encounter peacefully. You can also slaughter your way through the game or choose a middle ground.

«Baba is you»

Don’t get fooled by the simple graphics. «Baba is you» is more complex than it looks. The game is made up of a series logic puzzles that constantly increase in difficulty. There’s various object on the playing field. Some of them are also the rules of the game, such as «Baba is you». This allows you to control a white sheep-like character. Another power up is called «Rock is Push». Baba can now push aside boulders. What makes this game special is your ability to physically change the order of the words, thereby changing the rules of the game. Remove the word «Rock» and you won’t be able to move them anymore. You can only beat a level with the right combination of words and objects.

«The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim»

Yes, I know, the game is old. Still, the Switch version delivers – be it with those classic bugs that you either love or hate. The ability to play on the move is especially cool. All those main- and sidequests will eat up your free time. It often happened that I could only complete one sidequest, if even that, on my one-hour train journey from Biel to Zurich.

«Doom»

«Doom» isn’t what you’d call a classic Switch title. On one hand due to its graphic nature, on the other due to its performance. The Switch’s abilities limp far behind other consoles and especially PC. You can really tell when comparing these versions side-by-side. But hey, if a sudden bloodlust grabs hold of me on the train, I’ve got something productive to do.

«Xenoblade Chronicles 2»

I’ve stopped counting the hours I’ve spent playing «Xenoblade Chronicles 2». The last game to shackle me to the screen with this intensity was «Final Fantasy X». The blade gameplay is pure unadulterated fun and creates countless tactical possibilities. Add to that the confused JRPG-storytelling I love. And hey «Xenoblades» is like «Pokémon»: instead of cute pocket monsters, however, you pretty much collect only half-nude girls.

«Dead Cells»

This pixel-action game has you fighting through procedurally generated levels, trying not to die for as long as possible. Else you’ll have to start again. That’s not half bad, however, as you continuously collect cells to improve your character. You also unlock new weapons that you find throughout the world. The different weapon combination gives the game a constant interesting dynamic. The precise controls and satisfying crunching effects when slaying enemies will have you coming back for more Switch.

«Wargroove»

This turn-based strategy game is the perfect Switch-companion for when your on-the-go. You play from a bird’s eye view. At the start you’ve only got a handful of warriors to use. You use them to capture structures and loot gold for your coffers. You invest this money into new troops that fight using a rock-paper-scissors system. Spearmen beat knights, bowmen take down flying vampires and so on. Every unit also has a special ability. For example, the knight only does maximum damage when travelling his full distance. And the warrior does most damage when being surrounded by fellow warriors. You can only be victorious by successfully implementing all these tactics.

«Crypt of the NecroDancer»

«Crypt of the NecroDancer» is a roguelike rhythm game where you lead the main character through dungeons to the beat. This is the first rhythm-based game to grip me since «PaRappa the Rapper». The gameplay always cheers me up.

«Final Fantasy 7»

No game has affected me more than Final Fantasy 7. I discovered it on the first Playstation, played it on PC, then as a PS3-download and finally again on the much-maligned Android port. As the remake is taking its sweet time, I’d rather spend the intervening moments playing the newest Switch port. I’ve got another date at the Golden Saucer with Yuffie.

«New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe»

More characters, more items and more modes. That’s what the new version of this Wii U classic offers. The multiplayer especially is really something special. It’ll no doubt lead to a massive screamfest, as my colleagues Philipp and Simon found out.

Nur schon das Titelbild hat für meinen Like gereicht :D Xenoblade war für mich sogar spannender als Zelda BotW, aber das ist natürlich reine Geschmacksache ^^

Da man die Anzahl weiblicher JRPG-Fans nicht unterschätzen sollte, wäre es vielleicht noch hilfreich gewesen zu erwähnen, dass es auch einige gut-aussehende Männer-Charaktere gibt in dem Spiel ;) Die Frauen sind aber definitiv in der Überzahl ^^

Wargroove kann ich übrigens auch wärmstens empfehlen! Hat mich in den Skiferien für mindestens 15-20 Stunden gefesselt. :)

Zusatz: Letzte Woche wurde übrigens bekannt, dass Monolith-Soft (Entwickler von Xenoblade) bei der Entwicklung vom neuen Zelda mithelfen wird. :D

User rem3_1415926

Xenoblade 2 ist ja ganz in Ordnung, aber es verblasst neben dem ersten Teil (Wii/3DS) und m.M.n. auch neben X (Wii U)...

01.04.2019
User Yurine27

hab den ersten Teil und X leider nie gespielt, aber habe eigentlich von mehreren Quellen gehört, dass XC2 vieles verbessert hat, was bei den Vorgängern eher nervig war ^^

User andkust

Monolith hat auch schon an anderen Zelda-Spielen mitgearbeitet (Skyward Sword, A Link Between Worlds, Breath of the Wild) und war auch bei Pikmin 3, Splatoon und Animal Crossing: New Leaf involviert. Ist also den grossen Rummel, den man jetzt um diese Meldung macht nicht wert.
XC1 War toll XCX konnte aber mMn in keinem Punkt mithalten. Lahme Charaktere, die Story kommt auch lange nicht in fahrt und bis man endlich mal einen Mech bekommt vergeht auch extrem viel Zeit. In New LA musste ich ausserdem immer den Ton ausmachen. Der sich immer wiederholende Pseudo-Hip-Hop nervte irgendwann einfach nur gewaltig. Den Teil muss man nicht haben.

05.04.2019
User Yurine27

@Andkunst: Es könnte den Rummel aber auch Wert sein, falls es sich denn um ein von MS eigenständig gemachtes Zelda-Game handelt, und nicht nur um Mithilfe bei 'nem Nintendo-Zelda. Anyway, ich freu mich jedenfalls darauf, egal was von beidem sich jetzt als die Wahrheit herausstellt :D only time can tell... ^^

Crypt of the Necrodancer definitiv eines meiner Lieblingsspiele für die Switch! vor allem die verschiedenen Charakteren bringen ein genug "level of depth" mit, um das Spiel richtig lange zu spielen. Für mich ein richtiges must have.

Xenoblade auch sehr lange gespielt, jetzt habe ich gerade wieder Lust bekommen das wieder weiterzuspielen :P

Wargroove werde ich mir definitiv mal anschauen, Danke für die tolle Liste!

Vielleicht gibts in Zukunft mal einen Beitrag zu Nintendo Switch Spielen mit Fokus auf Multiplayer? ;) Da gibt es nämlich auch einige Gems.

Skyrim, the game game is old but still deliver ... well to be able to deliver it has only one issue .... : the fact that it's on Switch ... non mod'able Skyrim has 0 interest ... (if you can't correct Bethesda error ... what's the point of getting the game? )

furthermore at that price ... and even if it's the "SE" version (SE version is made by Bethesda with idea and improvement that they did stole from the community ... aside the 64 bit .exe )

there is a tons of things to correct (model, textures, LOD optimization, FaceGen morph, et caetera )
the Switch is great for a lot of other games, just not, for one that the greatest asset is modding, Skyrim doesn't only deliver ... it surpass some current gens game if handled correctly ... but not on Switch

Eines meiner Lieblingsspiele für die Switch ist Celeste.
Celeste steht in der Tradition von Spielen wie Super Meat Boy oder FEZ und muss diesen Vergleich auch nicht scheuen. Der große Unterschied zu anderen Hardcore-Plattformern ist Celestes Einstellung gegenüber denjenigen, die am Spiel scheitern. Ihnen wird hier gesagt, dass es absolut in Ordnung ist, um Hilfe zu bitten.

Madeline hat sich das Ziel gesetzt, den Berg zu erklimmen, und das darf jeder in seinem eigenen Tempo tun. Diese Philosophie ist es, die Celeste so besonders macht. Man kämpft nie gegen das Spiel, sondern begibt sich gemeinsam mit ihm auf eine Reise. Wer es zu Ende bringt, wird nicht nur mit der Aussicht vom Berggipfel, sondern einer spielerischen wie erzählerischen Meisterleistung belohnt – ganz egal, wie geschickt ihr mit dem Controller seid.
Ich liebe das Spiel über alles ;)
