No Recommendation / Blank

Live action games rise again, just about, in this clumsy but earnest adventure.

As a game, it might bring all this goodwill down a peg, but it never once feels like you’ve wasted your time. At worst, it's like you’ve watched a great horror/thriller with a faulty remote by your side. And if you get over that, you’ll enjoy The Bunker. Well, as enjoyable as a post-nuclear holocaust story allows, anyway.

The Bunker is an incredible thriller, well recorded and with a soundtrack that lives up to the expectations. It features a intriguing story that gets better as the player advances in the game. The Bunker achieves its goals.

Despite my initial impressions, I really enjoyed The Bunker. I’m never going to play it again, but for the couple of hours it lasted it held my attention and expertly racked up the tension. It is certainly not for everyone, but it entertained me for it’s duration and you can’t really ask much more than that. Grab your significant other and some popcorn and The Bunker will make a great evenings viewing.

The team has succeeded in creating something that feels truly different and unique, but it's over too quickly and far too simple as a game.

A wonderfully tense and oppressive atmosphere let down by the restrictions of live action interactivity.

The Bunker on Nintendo Switch is a little hard to recommend, but will certainly find an audience in those who love horror films and want something dreary and dark on their console. While visually impressive and ambitious, it unfortunately falters with its execution and replayability.

The developers have done a great job in creating a tense adventure and if you're simply curious in seeing what it's like to play a live-action game, or if you're up for a little atmosphere in your next title, then The Bunker is certainly worth the trip.
