It lacks focus. Still, I’d assume that playing it on a PC, with improved visuals and controls, would still be interesting. Just don’t bother with this Switch port. I’m glad that this complex and mature game was released for it in tandem with other versions, but it’s much more inferior than its counterparts in every single way.
Quite an ambitious title, right? Sadly, an assortment of technical issues, an annoyingly busy UI, a total lack of balance, as well as a lack of challenge, has led to something that just isn't fun. Potential, thy name is Empire of Sin… but potential is great only when met.
For what it's worth, I genuinely do like this game. I believe it has great potential, and what Romero Games has pulled together makes me excited for both its future and whatever comes out of the studio down the line. But, the bugs are a real killer, to the point where it's impossible to look past them. I find it difficult to recommend this game at launch, knowing that you could have several instances that stop progression entirely.
