Game Informer gave "Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze" a 9.25 score out of 10, writing that the "transition from Wii U to Switch by the original developer, Retro, is seamless" and that developers went great lengths to open the game up to a new audience by tampering down the game's notorious difficulty.

The Switch version reaffirms that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a fantastic platformer. Having a new character to control and a handheld version of the game is great for previous owners, but the real audience is those who missed the original release.

Forbes gave "Hyrule Warriors: Definition Edition" a score of 8 out of 10, heaping praise on the game's gameplay and noting the overlooked gem is a worthy "Zelda" title for fans who might have missed out on the Wii U version. 

So if you’re a Zelda fan and want something more combat oriented with a strong element of strategy to it, then Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is worth checking out.
