    An amazing simulation RPG game set in a charming, family-friendly setting.

    Having the chance to play it on Nintendo Switch has made the experience even more enjoyable and accessible.

    If you’re looking for a title that relieves tension instead of building it, My Time at Portia is as soothing as gaming gets. The craft-heavy life sim offers new spins on mainstays like farming, mining, and even fishing. It’s the closest gaming equivalent to a warm cup of cocoa: soothing and satisfying. If Harvest Moon and Breath of the Wild had a baby, I’m positive their beautiful brood would feel like My Time at Portia.

    My Time At Portia is an ambitious game that actually delivers on what it sets out to do. The crafting can be extremely overwhelming at first and the presence of some in-game timers can be a mild annoyance, but get your head round its detailed multi-step building missions and you’ll end up with a game that could end up racking hundreds of hours on your Switch.

    My Time at Portia is a slow game, to the point that digging around in the mines or waiting for bronze plates to smelt can be mind-numbing. But in a way its builds are kind of like knitting; repetitive and slow but visibly building towards a satisfying, tangible product. Plus, there's enough surprise in the living world, the creepy mines and dungeons and the wide fields to keep things from getting too stale for too long.

    My Time at Portia is without a doubt an ambitious game, with plenty of places to go and a myriad of things to do. So it only feels frustrating to see that its long loading times can harm the player's experience and its overall presence on the Nintendo Switch feels like a PC game that was copied onto a console format, especially when it comes to its controls, as this turns out to be a game which only big fans of simulations of this kind will truly enjoy.

    Though the content and concept of My Time at Portia is sublime, having the potential to enslave your attention for months to come, the Switch port lacks the polish and love it so desperately deserves. Should quality of life fixes be implemented, this will certainly be worth sinking your time into. For now, not so much.

    Quise jugar My Time At Portia desde el primer día de su lanzamiento, no obstante fue de público conocimiento la gigantesca cantidad de bugs,Quise jugar My Time At Portia desde el primer día de su lanzamiento, no obstante fue de público conocimiento la gigantesca cantidad de bugs, intolerables tiempos de carga y muchos errores de programación que presentó el juego durante sus primeras semanas. Así que decidí esperar un tiempo y fue una excelente decisión. Al insertar el cartucho, recibí una actualización de muchos gigas, la cual corrige yo diría en un 90% los problemas técnicos del juego. Definitivamente, ahora los tiempos de carga son normales, existen eso sí algunos errores gráficos y de performance, pero que no afectan profundamente la experiencia de juego.

    My Time At Portia es un juego de simulación RPG similar a Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing o Rune Factory. Ambientado en un mundo pos apocalíptico, controlamos a un albañil cuyo objetivo es recuperar las tecnologías ocultas en las ruinas del mundo perdido, construir grandes obras de ingeniería y mejorar la vida de los habitantes de Portia. Como buen simulador, la ciudad tiene una amplia variedad de pecualiares personajes con los cuales podremos interactuar, hacernos amigos, tener relaciones amorosas, casarnos e incluso tener hijos. Así como también luchar con monstruos y obtener valiosos botines para crear nuevos objetos. My Time At Portia se descata por ofrecer una infinidad de actividades y misiones que llevar a cabo, no exagero al decir que nunca falta algo que hacer en Portia. Podemos criar animales, cultivar vegetales, arboles, capturar monturas, descubrir recetas de cocina, recolectar frutas y hierbas, así como también mejorar nuestro equipo y armas para el combate.

    Portia es un juego muy completo en todo sentido. No solo por la cantidad de actividades para realizar, si no también por su apartado estético. Los paisajes que podemos observar en Portia son realmente maravillosos. Muchas veces me ocurrió que paraba un momento de jugar solo para admirar una puesta de sol, o la vista de la ciudad desde la colina más alta. Los personajes no jugadores están muy bien logrados, llenos de carisma, misiones que ofrecer y una personalidad propia que te harán realmente sentir mayor afinidad con unos que con otros.

    A pesar de que My Time At Portia aun presenta errores de rendimiento que molestan un poco, no dudé un segundo en otorgarle la nota máxima porque es simplemente el mejor juego de simulación que jamás he jugado (y he jugado muchos). Absolutamente recomendable para estos tiempos de cuarentena.

    I bought this game despite reading the reviews on here

    I have played around 20 hours now and I am loving it, if you like Stardew Valley
    I bought this game despite reading the reviews on here

    I have played around 20 hours now and I am loving it, if you like Stardew Valley then you will love this, very similar games in terms of the gameplay loop, except this is in 3D and has a more fleshed out world

    The initial loading screen is quite long, but I do not suffer the same issues as listed in the other reviews, I get a slight screen stutter on TV mode when going up a certain road but thats it

    In terms of gameplay like I mentioned below very similar to Stardew except you have a workshop to restore rather than a farm, you can do all the same thing like mine, raise animals, crops, expand your house etc but you are also a builder and can take on contracts for repairs or to build resources or items

    It also has a simple combat mechanic and bosses to fight, the relationship system is also very much like Stardew where you gain relationship points and can get a partner, it is more fleshed out than Stardew though

    I got this game in a sale been a very decent pick up

    I love the game, but it just does not run good on the system. Mediocre graphics and loading times, that take ages. Just get it for PC.

    It's a good game but has some important problems as of today like freezing in certain moments and ridiculous long loading screens

    The worst version of this game.
    Graphics are terrible compared to the PC version that already looked like a PS2 game and they made it worse
    The worst version of this game.
    Graphics are terrible compared to the PC version that already looked like a PS2 game and they made it worse on the Switch. The game has input lag and lags sometimes while playing undocked. And where are the voices and why does the game not have sounds that are on the Steam version? It's so silent.
    The game is fun and is like Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon that I love...but this is really a bad port and is the most expensive. Avoid.

    Waited for the Switch version for quite some time. Was utterly gutted to see such a scandalously lazy and buggy port. Loading times areWaited for the Switch version for quite some time. Was utterly gutted to see such a scandalously lazy and buggy port. Loading times are horrendous, no more voice over, graphic downgrade... At this point in time, it's a scam. Don't waste money on this until it's properly fixed.

    A shame Team17 published the game in such a terrible shape and Nintendo would allow such a buggy game on their console without the possibility of a refund. I would certainly ask for one.

    I actually created an account on Metacritic specifically to rate this game. That's how frustrated I am.

    Biggest disappointment on the Switch. Love Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, and Breath of the Wild- all games this title draws inspirationBiggest disappointment on the Switch. Love Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, and Breath of the Wild- all games this title draws inspiration from, so naturally this peaked my interest. This game is an unfinished buggy mess that lacks any polish whatsoever. There are thousands of simple things (no animation for going out of bounds, crazy lag, 2 minute load times for going literally anywhere, broken ui, frame rate plummeting, I could go on and on) that amount to this being utterly unplayable. Shows a lot of potential and I might consider replaying if all of these are fixed, but otherwise it's a no go. Reviews that gave it an average rating had to have only played it for 30 minutes or so, as a lot of its glaring issues amount to more and more over time. The studio should ashamed for putting something of this poor quality out there, and I truly hope they will make up for it with a proper port. Expand
