Among the genres represented on the Switch, survival is one of the thinner ones, so new entries are always appreciated. Survive on the Raft’s name may be among the most on-the-nose of titles out there… you’ll be trying to survive… on a raft (that thankfully seems to have a nearly never-ending supply of crates and materials strewn on the water). Among its peers the one thing on its side, without a doubt, is that where you’re operating from is unique, and that’s not without some merit. That said, there’s no getting away from the fact that it’s also decidedly bare bones with its look, how elements like fishing are poorly implemented, and nothing stands out as truly notable. The novelty may be enough to make it worth a look, but don’t mistake it for a great representation of the genre on the system.
