HD isn't enough. In the pantheon of Reggie quotes this lags behind "My body is ready," and "I'm about kicking ass and taking names," but it is more important. Nintendo insists games need more than fancy looks, but WayForward didn't listen.
This is an HD remake of 2011's fun 3DS puzzler with added remixed levels. Patricia Wagon, a cop, dashes through 2D levels, blasting enemies and capturing escaped convicts. The power to switch blocks in and out of the scenery makes Mighty Switch Force stand out, as it requires quick thinking to go with those quick fingers. It's a mechanic built for 3D and, although the Hooligan Sisters may look prettier on Wii U, this isn't a game that needs HD.
Mighty Switch Force was fun the first time around and tough the second - as you tried to beat the insane times - but playing the stages a third time gets boring. Re-jigged Hyper Drive levels (the same environments, but different block placements) are tougher, but they're not a big enough reward for those who have played the 3DS game.
And those who haven't? They'll have fun, but why couldn't WayForward appeal to both camps with an all-new selection of levels? Instead we have prettier versions of the originals with some tweaked levels tacked on. For more money.
