  • This one is a challenge for me to review as there’s good news and bad news. On the one hand I truly appreciate the effort being put in here, providing a family-friendly and sometimes entertaining spin on the survival horror genre featuring a cavalcade of characters from the pages of R.L. Stine’s body of books geared to provide age-appropriate chills. On the other hand, though there’s nothing else quite like it in the Switch eShop there’s no denying that the license (and no doubt the great voice work) has come with a price tag attached that feels steep for the relatively short overall adventure. Though you could say that the game mechanics aren’t the greatest in reality they’re as good as or in some cases better than many comparable genre titles in the space. Being honest, there are a lot of plain walking simulator horror games that may have a more mature edge visually but that lack this game’s charm, various monsters, and polish. If you or your kids are big fans there’s no doubt you’ll likely enjoy seeing many of his most notable members of his menagerie running about (mostly consistent with the movies in terms of their selection), just bear in mind that the asking price is a bit steep for the core experience if you removed the license from the mix.
