    I played this on Xbox One the day it was released. It was a terrific disappointment. Graphical inconsistency, PS1 era character animations and area boundaries, and extremely lengthy loading times.

    One example, I walked off a dock near the beginning to test the swimming mechanics. The swimming consisted of bobbing and flailing, and when I tried to climb onto a gradually sloping shore I kept bouncing off of it. The character couldn’t walk onto land from the water!

    Maybe the developers will fix something before the Switch release, but I don’t know how much that will do for it overall.

                          Thought this was the top down shooter mobile looking game from the direct, almost skipped over it. Im glad I clicked on the vid.

                                      I just hope it's something like a Shadow Over Insmouth rather than gunning down Cthulhu with a Tommy Gun.

                                              First person controls on the switch are absolute trash. Better hope this doesn’t have em.

                                                First person controls on the Switch are fine, they're the same as any other console game. And it's not a first person game.

                                                That was a great game. One of the sanity things made it seem like I'd switched to news coverage of a house fire, on a day when I actually saw news coverage of a house fire.
