Boot Hill Bounties Critic Reviews

Boot Hill Bounties would be considered a serviceable JRPG without the bugs. The visual glitches are just out-of-place, but the progress-ending bug in the opening tutorial had me worried every time I would open a menu or click through dialogue that my playthrough would be ended prematurely. Given that the story, systems, and mechanics are so familiar, it's a shame Boot Hill Bounties does nothing to make its versions unique or exciting outside of the trope-filled, spaghetti-western theme.

Ultimately, Boot Hill Bounties just doesn't do much of anything.

The game marks a strong second title, and new players shouldn’t be afraid of jumping straight in here — though checking out the previous title certainly wouldn’t hurt. Signs are good that the developer will be able to make a fitting conclusion to the trilogy.

Boot Hill Bounties doesn’t do a whole lot original as far as old-school RPGs go, but its neat Wild West setting and fun gameplay ensure that it’s still worth checking out. Sure, it can get a little bit repetitive in places – especially within the combat against standard enemies – but the attractive world and the varied gameplay mechanics do enough to make it stand out as another enjoyable RPG to add to the Nintendo Switch’s ever-expanding library.
