Yesterday Origins is a remarkable graphic adventure that, however, does not manage to shine in Nintendo Switch due several technical issues. It remains the memorable piece of art it once was, with a wonderful story to follow, but there are some serious drops regarding framerate that need to be worked on.

Yesterday Origins is a great graphic adventure with influences from the old ones and with a very interesting story. However, it has some plot holes and a few technical issues.

All round, it’s a solid point and click adventure game that combines that familiar old-school formula with a couple of clever quirks. It has a decent story to boot as well, though there are slight issues with pacing, both in terms of the how the narrative unspools combined with some of the more obtuse puzzles. Together, these create a barrier that will stump players while ultimately holding Yesterday Origins back from greatness.

Repetitiveness, occasional frustrating puzzles and a couple of technical hitches may put you off Yesterday Origin, but if you persevere you will find an enjoyable, conspiracy thriller.

Yesterday Origins is a classic adventure that tries to be modern - with detailed investigation system and consoles/tablets support, but gets stuck somewhere at the end of the last century with outdated game mechanics, ugly cutscenes and sometimes boring plot. And it's really sad.

Yesterday Origins is a game that brings a retro feel back to the Adventure genre. It's a game that places emphasis on a decent storyline, a great cast of characters, thorough exploration and puzzles that actually make you think. While these factors will make the game appeal to Adventure fans, newcomers to the genre will likely be put off by the unforgiving nature of some of the puzzles.

Yesterday Origins has a strong cast of characters, an intriguing plot, and beautiful presentation. When you manage to work it all out, the game can be a real joy, but when things go wrong, it can be frustratingly slow and pedantic. Like its narrative, it jumps back in time to remind us of when games were far more frustrating and constrained. It brings back elements of gaming's past that we like, but it also brings back those that we don't. We've come a long way, but if all those troubles feel far away, well Yesterday Origins, to quote The Beetles, makes them look "as though they're here to stay".

With an engaging story mixing together thriller and comedy elements with occult themes and plenty of dark humor, as well as some interesting characters, Yesterday Origins is a point and click adventure game that fans of the genre will surely appreciate. With the gameplay formula not straying too far from familiar ground, however, the game developed by Pendulo Studios will hardly appeal to those who don't enjoy this classic genre.

The game's rather slow pace may not please everyone but this is a good proposal that has the merit of making a point and click game something enjoyable on a gaming console.

Yesterday's Origins doesn't attempt to change the formula of the point and click adventure and that's okay. The story is delightfully bonkers and it looks pretty, but if you dig deep there's some repetition, some odd stylistic choices and you might not recall it in years to come, but it's nice to see such a game on Nintendo Switch.

Yesterday Origins is straight up a point-and-click game as they come, bringing all the things from the old days of the genre and does nothing drastic to change from the norm.

Yesterday Origins is a clever adventure game with a nice mix of the old-school of point and click releases and some of the advancements in the genre for the 21st century. It's a lengthy release with plenty to do and lots of information to process, as should be the case for any adventure release. The game's art style will grow on you as it is a nice mix between cartoony and realistic with a lot of polish to detail. If you want a good PS4 adventure game to play, then Yesterday Origins from Pendulo Studios and Microïds could be just what you needed.

Pacing issues, unnecessary backtracking and some frustratingly complex puzzles mar a title that is well-written and holds a lot of charm. A competent game but one that isn't quite as good as its predecessor.

Overall, the game is fantastic and lengthy. This is not a short game! I’m at well over 12 hours in the game and still have a lot to do! And yes, the game does indeed have a Platinum trophy. Unfortunately, this game has a ton of missable trophies, so good luck with your trophy run! I highly recommend that you purchase this wonderful point and click release for your PlayStation 4. I love the genre, and writing this Yesterday Origins review has been a great way to end my month!

Yesterday Origins is a by-the-numbers adventure game that hits all of the marks with reliable accuracy. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, and the puzzles are standard and are occasionally veer difficult for the wrong reasons. The story is elevated by some distinct concepts and strong character writing. It's worth a try just to see how immortals deal with the problem of aging.
