Review: Sayonara Wild Hearts

September 23, 2019 1 min read

Adequately covering the launch of Apple Arcade is a herculean task for even the biggest of websites. There are just so many games, all released at once, during one of the busiest Septembers in recent memory. With this new streaming service, Apple has done what it never could before: transformed its iOS ecosystem into an environment where all types of games have the chance to succeed.

Not every game that makes its way to Apple Arcade will be good, we've already learned that. But you shouldn't discount the service just because it's mobile. This is a game-changer for the format, one where experimental games can finally get their due alongside the free-to-play bores that dominate the industry. Without Apple Arcade, I'm not sure many mobile gamers would even be aware of something like Sayonara Wild Hearts. Now, especially with the available trial period, they really don't have a good excuse to not give the crazy ride a shot.
