  • I’m sure anyone who takes on the challenge of making a game and getting it released dreams of their title being truly memorable. Of course, if what sears it onto memory are the problems rather than triumphs perhaps it would be better to remain obscure. After the pretty dreadful mess that was the original Hollow on Switch I assumed that there wouldn’t be a sequel, but I was wrong. I had hoped that the return would be determined to overcome the many shortcomings of the original, among them the very ugly and muddy presentation, the lackluster (and overly-repeated) enemy models, weak first-person action, and odd overall story. I was, again, wrong. If anything it feels like they’ve either ignored that the original had problems or have even decided to lean in even harder to things that didn’t work, thinking they’d somehow work themselves out this time. They didn’t. It’s a real mess, but if somehow my words don’t sate your curiosity I’d say that of the two the original was more playable, so I’d start there if you’re determined to see the trainwreck for yourself.
