"Pizza Titan Ultra" Review
"Pizza Titan Ultra" is one of those "anything goes" types of games, where the off-the-charts weirdness level is so prevalent that oddity starts to become the comforting norm.
You play as a giant robot whose job it is to romp through destructible environments, bashing everything in sight in all-out pursuit of prompt pepperoni delivery.
Released in August on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, the game now comes to the Switch, where its pick-up-and-play accessibility translates well to low-intensity, on-the-go play.
Throwback visuals replicate the 16-bit era in tone and style, if not pixel count. The visuals are smoother than the finest Super Nintendo devs could have conjured.
While there is plenty of humor to enjoy, you may find that the laughs take on diminishing returns. Once the quirky trappings fade away into normalcy, what you're left with is a well-polished but perfunctory series of destructive delivery challenges. The replay value dwindles within an hourlong session.
Still, if you're looking for a tight, charming experience that lets you take out your frustrations on hapless enemies and structures who can't contend with your wrath, "Pizza Titan Ultra" delivers.
