>observer_ is a wonderful futuristic Cyberpunk adventure game with plenty of detective work that adds the occasional scary thrill. The story is well written and the interrogation scenes are a wild, fun, vivid psychedelic ride.
The Switch version of Observer is one of the most impressive technical achievements on the console so far, and is actually less technically flawed than on other consoles. Any visual caveats can be overcome by playing the game on handheld mode. This is still one of the best walking sims, as well as cyberpunk-themed games in general out on the market, so if you’re into franchises like Ghost in the Shell and Blade Runner, this is a must for you.
Observer on the Switch brings back all the good aspects of the game and gives you more flexibility on how to play it with new touch inputs and, of course, the option to play it on the go. Observer also looks better in handheld mode, which provides even more reason to make full use of the console’s capabilities. However, it is still the same flawed game it was almost two years ago when it first released.
