Not great in the way of replayability, but the first playthrough is fantastic.

Who would have thought that the classic action-RPG would be revitalized by the typically boring prospect of running a small business? Diving into procedurally generated dungeons and slaying beasts with every manner of weapon answers the question, “What would a 2D version of Breath of the Wild look and play like?” Well, sort of like Moonlighter.
The graphics possess a cute cartoonish refinement with more than a touch of anime influences, paired with excellent animations and spellbinding music which together creates a truly exceptional and wonderful atmosphere. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your Nintendo Switch, turn on Moonlighter and turn all your dreams into reality. You owe it to yourself.
I’m not completely calling these issues dealbreakers, particularly since the good stuff carries much more worth than the bad. Moonlighter is one of those titles that just sort of ended up making me okay with its contrivances and keep playing for a pretty long while. In fact, just thinking about it as I write this is making me want to fire it up again, so it absolutely is under my skin.
