While the controls aren’t perfect, they work well enough so I can’t complain about them. My one complaint is about load times. As you transition from scene to scene, it can take quite a while for the game to load. It’s a shame as it really slows down what’s already a fairly glacially paced title. Hopefully, a future update can address this.
With a tonne of puzzles included in the campaign, daily puzzles available to download, secrets to find and a story to unravel, Katrielle And The Millionaire’s Conspiracy is a great Switch game and a worthy addition to the Layton franchise
Overall, Pokémon Sword and Shield is stunningly good. It might not make everyone or every fan happy but I enjoyed every minute I spent with it. For a series that’s 23 years deep with very little innovation, Pokémon Sword and Shield feels like a good first step towards finally shaking up what a Pokémon game can be.
