As impressive as its first two previous Mighty releases are, WayForward has managed to kick things up a few notches with this third title. Not only is the switching mechanic extremely well implemented, but the visual and musical presentation the developer has moulded around it is equally amazing. Mighty Switch Force is easily one of the best games WayForward has crafted and just the type of top-tier 3DS title Nintendo's eShop has been in dire need of.
Mighty Switch Force is the best Mighty installment yet, even if it still feels like a tease. It's a game of cops and robbers, the sexy future edition, that blends light running-and-gunning with crazy platform manipulation. Once again, WayForward proves that it knows what its doing when it comes to downloadable titles on a Nintendo service. Other developers need to step up their game.
Mighty Switch Force is a great first effort from WayForward for Nintendo’s 3DS, but it has its issues. The game lacks length, and its Par times will unnecessarily encourage players to rush through their first playthroughs – making the game seem even shorter and stealing away some of their sense of the success. Let’s hope that just as DSiWare received several different titles from this studio, so too will the 3DS eShop – and that whatever game comes along next will be mighty enough to truly eclipse their earlier hits.
That would be enough, but each level also comes with a truly insane time target to aim for, encouraging you to pare your hard-earned five-minute completion back down to - gulp - a minute and a half, say, and making a rather short game a little more replayable in the process. If you have the speedrunning bug, be warned: Mighty Switch Force's taunting clockwork worlds are going to be a dangerous, and possibly fairly maddening, compulsion. Even if you don't, this is still clever, personable, and beautifully made.
Mighty Switch Force bringt eine gelungene Mischung aus Jump‘n‘Run mit Shooter-Elementen auf den Nintendo 3DS und würzt das Ganze mit einer Briese Geschick. WayForward ist hier sicherlich kein Überhit gelungen und auch der Umfang fällt recht beschaulich aus, aber der Spielspaß stimmt und das ist die Hauptsache! So viel Liebe steckt nur in wenigen Vollpreistiteln auf dem Nintendo 3DS, weshalb wir jedem Besitzer des Handhelds ans Herz legen sich diesen Titel unbedingt genauer anzusehen!
