    Yesterday Origins is a remarkable graphic adventure that, however, does not manage to shine on Nintendo Switch due several technical issues. It remains the memorable piece of art it once was, with a wonderful story to follow, but there are some serious drops in framerate that need to be worked on.

    Yesterday Origins is an interesting game for all the players who like point & click games. The story catches up the players and it makes them feel inside an interactive historical novel.

    Yesterday Origins has the rather unusual task of bringing a point and click adventure game to the Nintendo Switch eShop...and it works, as this is a fully enjoyable game that features a short but interesting plot, with some very good dialogue lines, a well adapted control scheme and a top notch audiovisual environment. The game may not be up everyone's alley, as its slow pace may put some players off but this is a successful and interesting game of an unusual genre in consoles that is well worth of the players' attention.

    Yesterday’s Origins doesn’t attempt to change the formula of the point and click adventure and that’s okay. The story is delightfully bonkers and it looks pretty, but if you dig deep there’s some repetition, some odd stylistic choices and you might not recall it in years to come, but it’s nice to see such a game on Nintendo Switch.

    Yesterday Origins is a mediocre title. Where you follow interesting characters and settings, most of the time the puzzles feel like to much out of place. You can immerse yourself in an interesting story, with terrible voice overs.

    Una gran aventura gráfica recomendable para todos los amantes del género.

    Lo bueno:
    -Gran historia muy bien contada.
    -El nivel de dificultad de los puzles es lo suficientemente difícil para que no sea un paseo pero sin llegar a ser tan rebuscados como para tener que mirar una guía.
    -Personajes muy bien presentados y con un buen reparto de protagonismo.

    Lo malo:
    -La jugabilidad a veces es un poco tosca pudiendo interferir con la resolución de algunos puzles.
    -A pesar de que no he visto tirones de fps, mi switch hacía bastante ruido al jugarlo y se calentaba más de la cuenta, señal de que probablemente no esté del todo bien optimizado.

    It's an original story with a complex control scheme, I guess they wanted to create an original control system but it lacks intuitivity andIt's an original story with a complex control scheme, I guess they wanted to create an original control system but it lacks intuitivity and sometimes you know what you have to do but do not know how. Ohter times, they make you talk several timesi to the same person for the right option to appear, something which again is counterintuitive. I've played many game adventures and solved them without having to seek for external help, but on this one I had to look for advice a 3 or 4 times. The first one because I was really stuck and the rest because I just lost patience knowing that the solution would be something either not obvious or hard to guess due to the control system. Finally, many reviews complain about the port to Switch and low frame rate but I have to say that they must have solved the issues cause I did not see any FPS problems. Expand
