Nintendo Switch fans can shine some light on the best and worst games available from the eShop.
A new Nintendo Switch update makes it possible for users to leave reviews on game purchases.
Available through the Nintendo US website, fans can rate games out of a possible 5 stars and submit short written reviews.
The only catch is that you need to have a Nintendo Account to leave reviews, and must have played the game for more than 2 hours.
Account holders can also select from a series of tags to help customers make informed decisions about whether or not the game is for them.
You can describe releases as family friendly, challenging, easy to learn and much more.
It’s a handy feature that goes a very small way to making up for the lack of pre-order refunds.
Switch owners are currently unable to cancel purchases and receive refunds after pre-ordering games from the eShop.
Customers are currently asked to waive their right to cancel pre-orders before eShop purchases are made.
However, the Norwegian Consumer Council (NCC) argues that even with prior consent, the company can’t “prohibit the consumer from cancelling or withdrawing from a digital content contract before the performance has begun”.
The organisation has called on Nintendo to change the way it operates.
“They have to follow the rules and clearly show how the consumer can proceed if they want to cancel a pre-order,” the NCC’s Finn Myrstad explains.
“No matter what their policies are on pre-orders or refunds, the right of withdrawal is always applicable before the game is released.”
The NCC has sent an open letter to Nintendo, which asks the company to explain its legal position.
Myrstad argues that obtaining refunds for pre-order content should be quick, easy and available with a click of the button.
