  • As a huge fan of classic arcade shooters, retro-styled shmups, and pretty well anything shooter in general the Switch has really come through with a ton of variety and options. Syder Reloaded, I’ll admit, doesn’t play quite like anything else on the system from on a game flow level, with levels that will challenge you with enemies coming from both sides, adding an element of unpredictability to the conflict. That said, there’s just something about the way things are set up that doesn’t quite work for me. It doesn’t do a very good job of explaining basic play, power-ups, or how its style of play is unique. I can jump into any classic arcade shooter and know what I’m doing without a word, but with a new formula it’s weird and detracts from the fun. If you’re looking for a fresh take it may be worth checking out, just be warned that different isn’t always a net positive.
