West of Loathing Review by ReallyPassionateGamer

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.

West of Loathing Review via Nintendo Insider

West of Loathing is a game you pick up for ten minutes and put down four hours later because you were lost in finding the right item or avenging the deaths of a family. Aside from a few tiny flaws here and these, this is a must own game for everyone and one that begs to be played over and again.

WEST OF LOATHING NINTENDO SWITCH REVIEW – WILD WEST via SwitchWatch

West of Loathing is one of those games that you go into not expecting much at all. My only previous experience of it was seeing it at EGX and I was watching someone else play. I thought it looked ok, but I didn't give it much thought after that. I went into this totally cold, expecting very little. That has taught me a very valuable lesson yet again to never judge a book by its cover. The game is rich with content, has an excellent and humorous story which will keep you entertained all the way through with great little brain teasers. The only slight let down is the battles, but it's not even that bigger deal as this has so much more to offer. Do yourself a favour and pick this one up because it's one of the best little games on Switch and one I will not hesitate in recommending.

I heard nothing but great things on the writing in this game. Will be picking this just to pass time before Octopath comes out!

Whoa, I used to play Kingdom of Loathing all the time at work (er…on my lunch break?). I loved the humor and gameplay. Might have to get this just to support them.

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!
