Critic Reviews for Sword of the Vagrant

As we mentioned, the art style looks great and the game runs well in handheld mode, although it has the tendency to get a bit choppy when docked. We also ran into a few glitches over the course of the adventure, the most common causing Vivian to just slide across the screen while stuck in a crouch animation, and a soft lock later in the game in which the character would not stop walking right into a wall. By no means are these extreme and you would hope they'll be patched, but they got a bit frustrating over time. These issues aside, Sword of the Vagrant held our attention and, especially considering the modest asking price, is still worthy of light investigation if you're a fan of rough-and-ready hack-and-slashing.

For the $9.99 price tag, Sword of the Vagrant gives you a lot of content, enough challenge, and a decent story to keep you wanting to get to the end. I just hope Vivian can eventually buy clothes in her travels, as running around in leather underwear seems drafty and embarrassing!

Sword of the Vagrant is a boring hack and slash RPG that has a lot of promise but will definitely begin to test your patience only a couple of hours into its campaign. It might be fun for some mindless action or to admire 2D boobies but that's about it. 👙

Sword of the Vagrant presents a classic adventure, heavily inspired by Odin Sphere, which manages to be fun in short doses.

Steeped in old-school sensibilities, this budget slashing adventure should appeal to retro fans
