Critic Reviews for Darkestville Castle

For content starved fans of the classic point and click adventure, it's hard not to get excited about a new entry in the genre, particularly one whose visuals inspire a feel good nostalgic hit for all things LucasArts. Dig a little deeper though and you'll find this is an underwhelming imitator of the legends of yesteryear. Too many obscure puzzles and too many unfunny jokes prevent Darkestville Castle from being the Secret of Monkey Island successor it so obsessively wants to be.

An enjoyable graphic adventure heavily inspired by the great classics of the past, with a light-hearted approach to storytelling and plenty of puzzles to solve. It's not a new masterpiece but it can provide hours of entertainment for all the fans of old school adventure games.

While Darkestville Castle may not ultimately signify the rebirth of point and click,it's still an enjoyable adventure, and the Switch optimisation makes it an even more enjopyable experience.

Darkestville Castle is a humorous point and click adventure game that doesn't add anything new, but offers a very polished experience. Some control annoyances do little to hamper the experience and jokes land more often than not.

Darkestville Castle is a nostalgic game for sure. But play at your own risk as rose-colored glasses are not included.

Though lacking some of the flair and longevity of its classically inspired genre brethren, Darkestville Castle nonetheless provides an enjoyable dollop of point and click adventuring by swapping out the usual fresh-faced hero for a sarcastic and high amusing viliain. This is one for genre newcomers and stalwarts alike.

I keep bringing this series up, but if you liked the Monkey Island games, you'll almost certainly enjoy Darkestville Castle. In fact, if you've always wanted to try one and are allergic to PC gaming, this is not a bad experience on Switch at all. The visuals and humor are worth it, at the very least.
