It’s wild how such oddball and quirky titles continue to come from Eastern developers, and if you’re willing to lean into the experience they can be a bit of unexpected fun. That’s definitely the case for Poison Control, whose story I don’t think I could begin to have the space to try to explain apart from it being unusual. That pairs well with the gameplay, which sort of mixes a rudimentary third-person shooter with an action puzzle game. Though the game’s dialogue and stories revolving around the various hells you’ll be looking to clear continue to pull you along and are interesting, unfortunately the same can’t be said for the gameplay, which never really takes off or has its parts feel particularly integrated with one another. If you’re into this style it may be fun, but otherwise you may find it falls a bit flat the further you go.
