Choosing the gaming medium in order to tell complex, and in the case of Best Month Ever, some pretty gnarly stories is definitely a double-edged sword. If your interest is in exploring a story with complex and some seriously broken characters, being forced to make decisions along the way that will carry a variety of consequences, there’s no question this delivers on that promise. I think where the issues arise is in the extremely inconsistent gameplay aspects throughout, which often left me wondering if streamlining to simply provide options and see them play out would have been preferable. I wouldn’t want to ruin anything more about how screwed up things get beyond the video but I’ll give the people behind this credit for tackling some dark material, something more of a rarity on the Switch. I just wish as a whole package it worked more cleanly and consistently.
