Reigns: Kings and Queens Critic Reviews

View All (8 total)

While its short-burst gameplay is perfectly suited to phones, Reigns: Kings & Queens arguably works just as well lying on the sofa with a single Joy-Con. It's addictive with plenty of depth to its deceptively simple systems, although like the mobile edition, it really is best enjoyed when played in small chunks. After several hours, repetition inevitably dulls its initial appeal, but if you haven't played it elsewhere, this is a great package that's well worth swiping right on.

Elegant in its simplicity, Reigns: Kings and Queens offers you all the different flavours that power comes in and is brutally easy to get lost in.

If you're looking for a fun and minimalist strategy game to play at home or on the go, in which every time you die you at least make some progress and push the game forward, then you should check out Reigns: Kings and Queens. Gameplay mechanics are very easy to understand, the art style is charming, and the weird scenarios you'll need to solve will keep you coming back for more.

8 / 10

Reigns: Kings and Queens certainly is a unique type of game on Nintendo Switch. Its minimalist art style looks great on the TV and on the console's screen when in portable or tabletop mode. The humor is also fun and charming, and it will make you chuckle every now and then. If you're looking for something different, then be sure to check out this one on Nintendo Switch since it includes Reigns and Reigns: Her Majesty in a single package.
