While I’m ultimately coming away from World to the West more disappointed than I expected, I admire the expanse and ambition. It’s a gorgeous game with some delightful, puzzling moments. This is still a cool game, just one with some flaws that hold it back from being exemplary.

World To The West is a nicely put-together adventure game, making use of a good roster of characters with different abilities to provide the player with enjoyable puzzles and combat. Some pacing issues and the odd niggle here and there prevent this game from being truly special but, if you are a fan of 3D adventure games full of humour and exploration-based puzzles, you’ll definitely have some fun here.

I think World to the West presents some very strong ideas, but the execution doesn’t always translate to captivating gameplay. If you’re on the fence, my recommendation would be adding it to your wish list for a future sale. There’s fun to be had here, but Rain Games’ earlier release, the less expensive Teslagrad, might be a better fix.

In total, World to the West is another solid entry in the Zelda-like games that are hitting the Switch’s eShop. Its shortfalls are minor, and its upsides are great. If, like me, you long for a top-down Hyrulian adventure on the Switch, then World to the West is a great game for you. It’s out today on the Nintendo Switch, for a mere $19.99 and worth every penny for a nice 10-20 hour adventure.

A World to the West is actually superior to its predecessor. The puzzles are wonderful and offer up some real head-scratching challenges, and the mechanics are engaging and fun. Parallels are evident between this and A Link to the Past and considering the quality of that game, in the comparison, it shows the quality of this one. A real surprise here, it is definitely one of the best Nindies to hit Nintendo Switch yet, and considering some of the titles hitting the console recently, that's really saying something.

Still, for a game as ambitious as this, there's a lot of fun to be had. And World to the West gives you a lot to do across the expansive space. It may stumble in its pacing and drag occasionally, but it's an entertaining and decent-sized adventure game that lovers of the genre will no doubt enjoy playing.

World to the West surge de uma equipa jovem mas promissora, que marcou uma estreia bastante acima da média. A ambição neste segundo título em integrar quatro personagens com mecânicas muito distintas e fazê-las resultar num universo de jogo cativante e com puzzles à altura da sua premissa, talvez tenha excedido um pouco o que este estúdio seria capaz de entregar no tempo de desenvolvimento que lhe foi dedicado.
