Morphies Law: PAX West Trailer - Nintendo Switch
Saddled by amateurish design, unskilled gunplay, and technical issues, Morphies Law fails as an online shooter. The game does have a great core concept and aesthetic, but it just falls short at every step. Not even its robust offline mode and customization system can prop up a shooter too flawed to receive even a feeble recommendation.
Morphies Law is a laughable game. But you laugh at it, not with it. If the mass transfer might be a very well-though alternative to the TPS genre, the game's physics and unstable controls will irritate the msot patient of gamers. It's three varied modes might have been a good excuse to grind and try the different weapons offered by the game, but I might by quite difficult to enjoy Morphies Law otherwise than being passably drunk.

On paper, the concepts of Morphies Law sound original and creative, but once you dive into the game, you'll find a more shallow experience than you were expecting. And that's disappointing—while it may sound like I'm harping on the game for copying others, I love all of the games that inspired it and was hoping that this would be another unexpected indie darling for my beloved Nintendo Switch. But ultimately, Morphies Law ended up being less like Splatoon, and more like the game's namesake, Murphy's Law—a lot of things could have gone wrong with this game, and they did.
