Critic Reviews for Underhero

While there are plenty of games keeping us busy these days, Underhero is one that should be on your radar at some point. The light price tag and unending charm make it a sleeper hit and one I can whole-heartidly recommend.

Despite minor flaws with presentation and control, UnderHero proves itself to be a rewarding experience that frequently surprises with its ingenuity and writing. This isn't exactly a 'go out and buy it now' kind of gam, but if you like the sound of it, you likely won't be disappointed by the content on offer here. It's not perfect, but a well-paced story, engaging combat system, and beautiful world make UnderHero a game that rarely disappoints, and we'd recommend it to anybody looking for a good 'deep cut' for their Switch library.

Underhero is humble indie game that pleases almost every fan of the genre. There are some issues here and there that prevent it from becoming a hit, but there is obvious unreached potential that can be fully reached if the developers are willing to give it more time and attention in the future.

Underhero is a memorable and charming little adventure. By constantly mixing things up, the gameplay never feels stale. And the plot twists your expectations in ways you would have never seen coming.
