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!
If the challenge described above appeals to you, it’s a solid title for your 3DS. WayForward is already at work making an DH version for the forthcoming Wii U, so those without 3DS should keep that on their radar as well. $6 is actually the most affordable price point WayForward offers on a Nintendo digital service, so it’s a great way to get a feel for their style and see what else they have. They know old-school, and that is why we here at Retro4Ever.com will continue to follow their projects. The best is clearly yet to come.
„Mighty Switch Force!“ ist einer der interessantesten Titel in Nintendos eShop. Das 2D-Jump’n’Run bietet mit den Extras der Protagonistin einige spannende Ansätze, die das knifflige Spielprinzip hervorragend untermauern. Dabei wird nicht nur der Kopf beansprucht, sondern auch das Fingerspitzengefühl bei den gefährlichen Sprüngen. Warum hat uns das Spiel dennoch enttäuscht? Die 16 Level sind schnell durchgespielt und die Jagd nach der besten Zeit konnte uns aufgrund der fehlenden Rangliste nicht fesseln. Nichtsdestotrotz ist das eigentliche Spiel eine Empfehlung wert, auch wenn das Drumherum nicht ganz mithalten kann.
Probablement le plus beau et le mieux ciselé des jeux téléchargeables nomades de WayForward, Mighty Switch Force s'impose comme un must have de l'eShop 3DS avec ses délices graphiques, ses musiques pleines d'énergie et son game design futé. En considérant l'impossibilité de jouer le mecha de Patricia comme un simple détail, l'unique gros défaut du jeu est de ne pas l'être assez, puisqu'il n'offre qu'une poignée de stages et une replay value très pauvre. Comme si l'on avait fait un repas uniquement constitué de très bons amuse-gueule.
