West of Loathing (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

Treating this game like a super-serious RPG is the wrong way to go about it, as that's where the holes start to emerge, whether it's the middling combat or the mildly annoying quest and item management troubles. This is a comedy, pure and simple, and thankfully it's one that's clever and funny in a way that makes up for any lesser gameplay segments. It's a great chaser between the ample supply of serious games out there, especially if you have Stupid Walking turned on.

West of Loathing via Digital Chumps

Imagine a Western where scouring the American frontier is as urgent as calculating the severity of a hat. This balance sustains West of Loathing's mixture of zealous role-playing and profuse outpouring of absurdity. It's proof that capable writing can not only texture eccentric maneuvers in design and presentation, but also prevail as a primary attraction. West of Loathing celebrates Western ambience and revels in disciplined goofiness.

[Beyond PlayStation] West of Loathing Review via PS4Blog.net

West of Loathing is a charming and very fun turn-based RPG on Nintendo Switch that you should download today. The funny writing, simple but solid gameplay mechanics, and the long list of locations you can explore more than make this one worth your time and money. You'll spend 12+ hours playing this one to see everything the game has to offer, which is great for its $11 price point.

West of Loathing (Nintendo Switch) Review via Cubed3

While this is obviously not Red Dead Redemption or anything of the sort, West of Loathing proves to be truly entertaining for what it is.

Such a great funny game. I have just gotten a couple of hours in but can't wait to get back to it.

Kingdom of Loathing.
A classic.
If you haven't played it, go ahead and do so now (look it up in Google, it'll pop right on top).
If you aren't into this kind of humor, you might not be appealed to this game either, but as far as I'm concerned, Kingdom of Loathing was a great game, and I am looking forward to this one too.

Didn't make the connection that this is made by the Kingdom of Loathing folks. Now I might have to get this!

Played a bunch of this on Steam when it came out last year, and am really excited that it's coming to Switch! Great sense of humor and definitely a game that rewards you for poking around and trying to figure things out.

Love the look of this game. Reminds me of Suits: A Business RPG on Steam!

I'm super excited for this! May not be day one, but it's definitely going to be a pick up.
