Cryogear - Nintendo Switch Game Trailer ESRB
Cryogear - Official Gameplay Trailer
Cryogear is in no way a bad game. For fans of the Metroidvania genre this is worth picking up as it is an enjoyable game. However, for those trying to pick out and find a few Metroidvanias that really stand out I don't know if this will be one of them. You can definitely spend upwards of 8-12 hours with Cryogear, if you want to complete everything, which may be enticing for some. However, the combat's a bit bland, there's not much of a story, and the visual and audio design need some work. I think Cryogear is a good fit on the Switch it just needed more time in development to give it some more personality.
