While there doesn't seem to be anything new to draw players in, Transistor has always had a goal of replayability to begin with. Owning it on a Switch lets you play it both at home and on the go, rather than needing two versions of the game to do so. Performance was great on both, and I spent a large amount of time playing through without even realizing it.
It's another welcome addition to the Switch library, and is the epitome of a modern RPG classic, with its fusion of cyberpunk elements, unconventional storytelling, and dynamic gameplay make for a game that you won’t want to miss out on. We’d give Transistor a high recommendation to anybody looking for another great RPG for their Switch, or for someone who just wants to hear a good story.
Transistor is truly a treasure of game and if you haven’t played it before, then do yourself a favor and check it out. It’s available on most platforms and handles very well. The gameplay is highly addictive especially as you unlock more moves. There’s also a Recursion Mode that allows you to play again from the start, but at your current level and all of the moves you’ve gained in the previous playthrough. The enemies will also retain their levels, making the game tougher and vastly different each time you play it. The high replayability factor also makes this game worth your time. In fact, I think it might be time for a third playthrough…
