Arcane busywork leaves little room for genuine pleasure in this fascinating and frustrating genre oddity.

The premise of Graveyard Keeper is of the most unique of just about any sim game out there, and this no-frills Switch port makes it portable for the first time. There really isn't much that needs to be added impressively robust graveyard management game, but it would have been nice if the game took advantage of the Joy-Con rumble feature.

Graveyard Keeper makes a lot of bold choices, replacing the friendly, relaxing atmosphere of typical life sims with a more goal-directed structure in a more cynical setting. While I found its pace tedious at times and would have preferred more focus on the grave-tending mechanics, more patient players will find a lot to like in its wealth of well-developed diversions, fantastic art and music, and pitch-black comedic aesthetic.

If you don't mind doing extensive web research in order to understand the ins and outs of Graveyard Keeper's gameplay progression, you'll be able to enjoy the best of what the game has to offer. However, if you would rather not deal with the hassle, I recommend passing on this one and checking out Stardew Valley instead.

Graveyard Keeper is an engaging and rewarding farming sim weighed down by pacing and performance issues.

Graveyard Keeper is a black comedy disguised as a management sim. Though entertaining, it's plagued by cumbersome upgrade systems and taxing tech trees.

Graveyard Keeper is a cemetery management simulation game and naturally, this is enough for it to stand out on its own. Adding to that a very interesting visual environment and a complex gameplay and a segment of the market will find reasons to be happy about. Those who are not fans of management simulations, as well as those looking for simpler experiences, won't appreciate it in the same way, as Graveyard Keeper can get too cumbersome, long and repetitive and could improve some aspects about its controls.

I don't want to make it seem like I absolutely abhorred my time with Graveyard Keeper. However, I feel I only didn't absolutely hate it because I'm already a massive fan of the genre. I can't in good conscience recommend it to you if you're only looking for a new game.
