Appropriately named for all of the worst reasons...
Survival horror to date has mostly been a true horror show on the Switch, and not in a good way. Unfortunately, Agony continues the trend, delivering what mostly amounts to a tedious walking simulator through hell as you try to not to get creeped out by an almost numbing amount of generally unappealing nudity. Would it hurt the people in hell to put something light on? Even if the gameplay wasn’t so thoroughly “Meh” the game’s performance problems almost certainly be a killer. Stutters, pauses, and a general degree of wonkiness will plague you throughout, and considering the payoff is generally so weak it’s very hard to recommend this to anyone, even if you’re hard up for a decent scare… especially since the game really doesn’t deliver on much more than being weird and creepy in general.
