Top Critic Average
Developer: Glass Heart Games
Publisher: Another Indie
Genres: RPG, Action, Platformer
Vigil: The Longest Night aims high and almost hits the mark thanks to its amazing level design, epic boss fights, uncanny visuals, and Lovecraftian and gothic horror themes. Sadly, it's bogged down by its muddled story, confusing map layout, and perplexing campaign progression.
Vigil: The Longest Night isn't the toughest Metroidvania you'll encounter on Switch – nor does it possess the most interesting plot – but it has plenty of secrets to uncover even after you've finished it; it's just a shame that Switch owners have to endure a host of technical problems, such as long load times and an inconsistent frame rate. These unfortunate issues aren't enough to totally sink the game, however; if you're in the market for more Metroidvania goodness and you like your games dark, grimy and gothic, then it's certainly worth a look.
All in all Vigil The Longest Night is a fantastic indie 2D Action-RPG with metroidvania exploration. If you like discovering secrets, games such as Salt & Sanctuary and don't mind reading through story/dialogue, Vigil will keep you immersed in its dark fantasy world. It has great replayability with a number of weapon/skill trees to challenge at a decent pricetag.
