  • I have no doubt that fans of the classic Turrican franchise will be thrilled with the opportunity to play all 4 of the original titles on their Switch. As is always the case when you return to games from a few decades ago though, you may be surprised or even disappointed with what you find. There’s no doubt that the varied power-ups and run and gun action have their moments, but I’d also say that level design and general stage layouts feel sloppy even put up against some of the series contemporaries. Granted, there are 4 titles included here, but throw in a relatively high cost and you’ll need to evaluate the nostalgia factor over picking up one possibly more contemporary titles for the same price of admission.
