Critic Reviews for Layers of Fear: Legacy

One of the best horror games ever made, this will scare you in incredibly clever ways and make you question everything you see.

Layers of Fear: Legacy is a great video game, but this is not its best version. There are some issues with its framerate that are a burden for the player. However, this is one of the best horror choices that this console has.

An awesome chance for the Switch users to enjoy one of the most intense horror games in the las few years. Deep, dark and charming, this edition contains the original game and also its DLC: Inheritance. Get ready to turn off the lights.

It would be easy to dismiss Layers of Fear as a funhouse, but the reality is that this game goes far deeper than a ride through a spooky house. As an examination of family, artistic obsession, alcoholism and regret, Layers of Fear hits on a deeper level while still delivering quality scares.

While the environmental storytelling is solid, the writing and voice acting lack polish.

Layers of Fear: Legacy is a scary reflection of humanity, but perhaps not as scary as your own reflection on the Nintendo Switch's screen.

Layers of Fear Legacy is a rather interesting horror-themed adventure that features some appealing puzzles and mostly, a visual environment that accurately portrays what the game wants to transmit. In the end, it doesn't fully immerse the player in its horror theme, which means it falls a few notches below the threshold it should reach, not to mention that it starts losing charm after some time.

This Nintendo Switch version of Layers of Fears offers new possibilities with the touch screen and the Joy-Cons and the DLC is of course included. It is also a little bit downgraded in terms of visuals, but the game is still the same : an outstanding narrative/horror adventure that you really shouldn't miss if you like the genre.
