There has been a real run of Lovecraftian horror titles coming to the Switch of late, no doubt making horror fans quite happy, and among them The Sinking City is the one doing it’s best to swing for the production values fences. Though there’s no doubt the game isn’t as impressive on the Switch as on other platforms for the most part it looks good, and certainly creepy, and performs well. Whether the story stands out against the competition will be a matter of taste but the environments, characters, and imagery certainly do a fair amount to establish a grim mood. Unfortunately elements like the combat and the somewhat iffy controls can drag down the enjoyment with frustration there’s a fair amount here to dig into for fans of the Cthulu and its ilk.
