    The port over to the Nintendo Switch for Worse Than Death isn’t bad at all. The puzzles are hard but not mind breaking, and the overall atmosphere is rock solid. If there was a way to better fix the controls during those puzzles segments where you have to shuffle things around and more variety in terms of monsters, this would be a better two and half hour experience. This being said, I liked the fact this game takes place during a high school reunion with a protagonist who is logical and doesn’t make dumb mistakes which is usually the case in horror situations.

    Overall the game manages to be an alright experience that likely won’t leave you feeling too strongly either way. The game can be completed in a brisk 2-3 hours, which is just long enough that it doesn’t overstay its welcome and yet just short enough that it feels lacking in certain ways. If you’re desperately looking for a short bit of horror to keep you entertained for at least a couple hours, it’s worth giving a shot, but you likely won’t find an overly memorable experience.
