Stealthy action games have had their ups and downs over the years and actually haven't been that strongly represented on Switch, leaving fans a bit thirsty for their handheld fix. While Quantum Replica has many of the necessary elements to help pull you in with the narrative and genre fundamentals it also has some execution flaws that stumble on its way to finding success. In particular the pulled out camera and very dark environments can make even simple pathfinding a problem at times, likely next to hopeless if you're playing in handheld mode in particular. Even without that though the general play feels pretty stale and lacking in innovation or excitement. It does manage to deliver a genre experience that's in short supply on the system but it's also a weak entry among its peers in the eShop.
