Burnout Paradise Remastered for Nintendo Switch is a good port of a decade old game. Alas, the dated gameplay can serve to frustrate over long periods of play, and the inclusion of readily available DLC removes the necessity of "needing" to play. The end result is a port of a once great game that lives to see another day by serving as the best, albeit overpriced, 'pick up and play' arcade styled racer currently available on the Switch.
From the pilot episode through to the finale of The Great, viewers will bear witness to the often humorous, and at other times ghastly, 18th century antics of young royals with too much power. As such, it entertainingly explores how the ideologies of religion and the aristocracy are juxtaposed with those of freedom of thought and educational enlightenment. The historical accuracies are further blurred by an engaging narrative built around humour, subterfuge and violence; with some outstanding and engaging performances along the way. The Great is truly unlike any other period drama on television, and its unforgettable irreverence is a breath of fresh air to be enjoyed by all.
Brave New World is a fresh & intriguing new science fiction series guiding viewers through the complexities of what it means to be human.
