    Black: The Fall is a nice addition to the Switch range, offering an interesting story, intriguing puzzles and great bite-size gameplay. Lovely moments easily outweigh any small flaws.

    The whole experience ended up being a few hours long. The likelihood is that this is a one--and-done playthrough, as once you’ve figured out the puzzles there really isn’t a reason to play again unless you’d like to go back and look for clues to figure out the back story. I wouldn’t say it’s the best puzzle-platform title available, but it’s unique and was worth the short time investment.

    The inspiration behind Black The Fall should be enough to draw an audience. The problem is, if you were judging the game with no prior knowledge or understanding of communism, you may not enjoy it as much as someone who is informed about the themes dealt with – as obscure as the interpretation may be at times. The visual narrative throughout is all that's offered to help understand the game’s universe; fortunately it does a satisfactory job shaping the world. The puzzle elements are not groundbreaking, but when mixed with the platforming provide a rewarding experience that is similar to the likes of LIMBO. The major blemish is the performance and reduced visuals. The sluggish performance ultimately makes this a far less enjoyable game to play on the Switch, and the below average visuals can make it tricky to distinguish what is going on at times.

    Black The Fall is an entertaining action game with puzzle solving that features a gloomy, somber background as the player has to escape an oppressive regime. While its puzzles and art style are to praise, the game feels too repetitive at times and its lifespan can get too short, not to mention that the lack of music harms the overall environment.

    Good game following the now common style of Limbo and INSIDE. You have to escape an industrialized version on Romania during the CommunistGood game following the now common style of Limbo and INSIDE. You have to escape an industrialized version on Romania during the Communist regime. it has some very interesting moments and I was never out of clue on how to solve the puzzles. controllers are fine. not perfect. Switch version looks little bit blurry but I can compromise that for portability. This is the kind of game for people who enjoy platforms / adventure / story telling games like Little nightmares, iNSIDE and Planet Alpha. get it on sale. Expand
