Switch review highlights: 3rd April 2021

Welcome to the latest Review highlights post. Let's have a look at which games have been ranked in the last 7 days.

Helping with unranked games

To help potential buyers track down those hidden gems, I'd very much encourage partners and members to seek out games that are unranked. There are tools for this in the reviewers dashboard and the members dashboard.

We need 3 reviews to rank a game. Titles that have 1 or 2 reviews will not take much to get them over the line. While it's understandable that everyone reviews the biggest titles, it's almost a shame to have more and more reviews for the same titles when others are overlooked.

If there's more we can do at Switch Scores to help find those unranked titles faster and get them reviewed, we'll do what we can to assist. Thoughts on this are welcome. Send us a tweet at @switchscores or an email at hello@switchscores.com.

Newly-ranked games

This week, we're a bit short of newly-ranked games. Most reviews have been for games that already have ranks, with a handful for unranked games. This is why I've mentioned unranked games above.

Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and Balan Wonderworld both have ranks. Elsewhere, it's good to see a couple more titles being ranked, including Collar X Malice -Unlimited-, which was released in August 2020.
