Operencia is a great dungeon crawling experience that you shouldn't sleep on, especially if you're a fan of the genre.

Operencia: The Stolen Sun is an excellent throwback to old-school first-person dungeon crawler games, complete with solid mechanics, a predictable yet enjoyable story and a very well written cast of characters.

Zen Studios has created a beautiful dungeon crawling RPG that not only will please the diehard blobber fan but also newcomers thanks to clever modern sensibilities. While the tile-based movement isn’t perfect, don’t let that hold you back from experiencing everything else Operencia: The Stolen Sun has to offer. You won’t regret it.
Operencia: The Stolen Sun proves ambitious for an indie project, and one that offers a wealth of satisfying content for the asking price. Its methodical, sluggish nature may not be for everyone, but those who accept it as a rough-around-the-edges retro dungeon crawler, should get a kick out of it.
Unique folkloric inspiration and interesting tactical considerations are let down by a slow second half.
Even the avatar will commentate on the situation, rather than stew in silence like so many other blank slates. This makes for an adventure that's amusing in every respect.
This is a fine first foray into the RPG world for Zen Studios, who is capable not only to develop hight quality pinball sims. Operencia is a solid if somewhat unoriginal dungeon crawler, recommended to all the fans of this genre.

Operencia: The Stolen Sun is very clearly a love letter. Not just to RPGs and dungeon crawlers, but to fantasy and mythology as a whole. There’s a lot to like, and while there’s gripes to be had, it’s still very fun. If you’re a fan of the old-school dungeon crawlers, I’d definitely recommend it.
Operencia: The Stolden Sun is a decent slice of adventuring fun that feels like a bit of a weird fit for the Switch but functions well on Nintendo's console nevertheless, and often feels unique, though rarely essential.
Zen Studios new dungeon crawler takes the tropes of an oft neglected genre, and updates them with wit and style. Operencia: The Stolen Sun oozes charm, with the perfect balance of combat, exploration, puzzles, and funny bantering characters. This game is a complete winner, and any fan of dungeon crawlers shouldn't hesitate to pick it up.
Operencia differs from a lot of the dungeon crawlers on Switch: it's more of a low fantasy story, and its fixed story and chapters helps to differentiate it from the dozens of roguelikes and roguelites we've seen in the past few years. For that alone, Operencia: The Stolen Sun is worth a long look.
Operencia: The Stolen Sun is a good dungeon game, but it has a few problems. However, these bugs don't cover up the goodness of the title. If you feel like a dungeon crawler that proposes a challenge and has its own style, go for it.
