Layers of Fear: Legacy Reviews
Layers of Fear Legacy is a decent enough horror experience, but it’s for horror fans only.
Layers of Fear: Legacy isn't your typical horror game with weaponry or with the means of survival from enemies. Instead, it takes a more artistic direction, technically, and manages to feel compelling from start to finish. The gameplay itself isn't too deep, but the narrative and atmosphere are top notch. Simply put, this is a great experience for anyone looking for eerie undertones without the baggage of item management and the stress of time.
This is a horror game that uses what you can't see to build tension. It expertly builds an atmosphere through its wonderful use of sound and visuals with the paintings themselves being a real star of the show. While the gameplay leaves a little to be desired in that there could have been more for the player to do, by design, this is a walking simulator for you to experience a very good horror story which will keep you glued until the credits roll. If you are a horror fan and want something a little different then this is a worthwhile game experience to add to your collection but if your searching for more involving gameplay or scare easy then best to look elsewhere.
Layers of Fear: Legacy is a solid horror effort on the Switch. It combines psychological creepiness with jump scares and tells a disturbing story. There’s not much in the way of action, so if you’re not into the “walking simulator” types of games this one probably won’t be for you. For everyone else, dive headfirst into this mad world.
"Trip to madness is too predictable."
