The Bradwell Conspiracy
The Bradwell Conspiracy is a game whose lofty concept doesn't quite match its execution. Its light, fairly arbitrary puzzles aren't particularly challenging, but its strong narrative is deployed almost perfectly throughout to weave them all together. The Bradwell Conspiracy is still an enjoyable journey, however, and certainly worthy of your time.
The truth is, I simply can't recommend The Bradwell Conspiracy in its present state. It just misses the mark in too many areas. With some fine-tuning and polish, its technical shortcomings could eventually be overcome, in which case it'll be ready for primetime. But playing it on the Nintendo Switch now has me reaching for a bottle of ibuprofen.
The Bradwell Conspiracy does a fantastic job of creating a compelling world, but it fails to do anything meaningful with it.
The Bradwell Conspiracy had the potential to become a memorable title because of its extremely creative mechanics associated with its thought-provoking storyline. Unfortunately the end result is an average experience, which can pay off if such ideas are well tapped in a possible sequence.

The story makes a big deal out of various themes, but there are only fleeting moments where it all matters. I think that the biggest problem of The Bradwell Conspiracy is that getting through it is neither fun nor rewarding. There are so many frustrating moments to be had that I would simply rather play something else.
If you’ve enjoyed first-person puzzle games like Portal and The Talos Principle, then The Bradwell Conspiracy deserves a place on your radar.
Even though it's a bit short, it still serves you a good story and some good puzzles to solve.

The developers of The Bradwell Conspiracy may be onto something with their immersive world, mysterious story, and top-notch voice acting but the game that surrounds all of that is nothing short of irritating.
The Bradwell Conspiracy runs terribly, the visuals are nothing special and the narrative is silly at best but that doesn’t stop Amber and the dialogue from standing out. I’d love to see what the developers, A Brave Plan, could do with more focus on the characters rather than plot, and a bigger budget for art and QA
The Bradwell Conspiracy is a mediocre puzzle experience that doesn't last more than 6 hours. Regarding the game's disappointing story, technical issues and easy gameplay, there are better options in the same genre that you can fill your time.
Overall, The Bradwell Conspiracy was a mixed experience for me. The narrative and aesthetics of the game are beautifully crafted. The look of this game is nothing short of amazing and the level design, especially with the puzzles, are enticing yet challenging.
It's not often that you can forgive puzzles taking a backseat in a puzzle game, but The Bradwell Conspiracy's narrative, visuals and voice acting more than compensate for its lack of puzzling weight
A lean, exciting conspiracy-thriller whose successes offset some notable faults.
The most disappointing part of The Bradwell Conspiracy is the illusion of choice at the ending, where there's only one outcome despite how things are worded to you. I enjoyed a lot about my time: unraveling the mystery, interacting with my NPC partner, and solving puzzles that felt innovative. The game is clever, interesting, full of style, and most of all, flawed. It lacks polish in a lot of areas that I think can be patched, but for the time being I'm reserved to recommend. I liked The Bradwell Conspiracy more than it would let me, and this is an intriguing universe that I hope we haven't seen the last of.
