It’s quite frankly a bit boring, and should you decide to control your character directly, there’s little more to the game than just moving around and automatically swiping your sword at enemies. We were admittedly rather impressed with the sheer amount of customisation options available, but this is almost rendered moot by such bland gameplay. We suspect it would work much, much better on mobile devices, but for Switch owners, this is an incredibly shallow experience.
Ritual is an overpriced and, unfortunately, very lacklustre game on the Switch with few redeeming features. As a game that can be started for free on mobile, this title is hard to recommend to anyone unless already a fan.
