Uncanny Valley’s desire to hark back to the simpler days of survival horror is commendable, especially in those early moments where you’re flitting between abstract nightmares and a security job that feels increasingly isolated. However, the sheer openness of its non-linear plot means it’s all too easy to jump large sections of the story as you stumble on one of the game’s secrets too early on.
Uncanny Valley feels like a lot of good ideas poorly executed. While it may hold your interest for one play-through it’s hard to recommend sticking around much longer than that in order to really piece it all together. While the Switch version adds a nice on the go factor to the game. it’s so hard to see what’s going on that it makes more sense to play it on your big screen – making your choice of console irrelevant if that was the reason for playing on the Switch.
I have never been too into survival horror games, but have played and really enjoyed some over the years. I was hoping that Uncanny Valley would be one of the good ones. For me, it failed to do so–it wasn’t terrible but the lack of a linear storyline made it more confusing than enjoyable for me. Fans of horror survival games may enjoy it more; however, casual players of the genre may want to wait for a price slash.
