A mediocre detective game with predictable stealth and a surreal story that runs out of steam near the end.

Call of Cthulhu's engaging mystery and intriguing utilization of RPG mechanics make it one of the more enjoyable Lovecraftian games in years.

A spirited attempt to adapt Lovecraft's mythos, but while it overcomes the low budget when it comes to atmosphere the overly simplistic gameplay drags it down.

Call of Cthulhu is a mostly competent, occasionally chilling adventure ruined by unspeakable horrors.

Call of Cthulhu is not a particularly good game. It looks and feels dated, contains some frustratingly realised mechanics and has possibly the worst gun combat I've ever experienced (luckily this is only a short section). What it does do well, however, is capture the feel of a Lovecraft story.

Call of Cthulhu brings to the Nintendo Switch the horror and madness of the game developed by Cyanide a Studio, with a great port that maintains all the ups and downs of the original launch.

Call of Cthulhu suffers from the second half of the accelerated and weak implementation of the mechanisms in them, which could have been a wonderful and captivating horror story otherwise.

Strong in atmosphere, weak in gameplay, Call of Cthulhu is a missed opportunity to build a great lovecraftian experience.

An adventure that will be enjoyed by H.P. Lovecraft's fans with a good setting but certain lack of action/puzzles making its story its strongest weapon to chain you to its desperation abyss.
