While mobile games being converted to console tend to get a bad rap there are sometimes exceptions to the rule. For the most part that’s the story with Grimvalor, a title that’s understandably pretty hot stuff in a space lacking in overall quality hack and slash action. However, that isn’t to say the experience isn’t without its shortcomings. This isn’t the Switch landscape of the early days or even a year ago, and in that light the loose controls and overall lack of variety in particular stand out. That isn’t to say that for the price of admission Grimvalor can’t be a good time, just the drop off from the top tier titles to the level it’s on is a bit steep. Still, if you’ve been thirsty for a pretty entertaining hack-and-slash platformer with a few surprises up its sleeve it will provide.
