While The Bunker lets you explore an actual nuclear fallout shelter, accompanied by great sound design and decent acting, it can be completed in a single sitting. There’s very little in terms of gameplay variance, and there are other games out there that’ll give you more playtime for your $12. Unless you like the novelty of an FMV game on your Switch, give it a pass unless there’s a sale.
The Switch release offers both the touchscreen comfort of the mobile version and the cinematic immersion of the home console versions, so there’s no better place to catch up if you skipped it first time round. However, lack of pointer control is a sorely missed opportunity to improve on the original release.
There wasn’t a moment I ever cringed, or raised an eyebrow. In fact, I actually winced and closed my eyes at one part because of the graphic nature of the scene. It’s short, and replayability is pushed for because of the insertion of collectibles and a branching path ending. But I didn’t find these enticing enough to come back. Once in the Bunker, was enough for me.
