Nine Parchments Review via Nintendo Insider

Nine Parchments is a perfectly fine dungeon crawler-esque experience that sadly never really manages to deliver on its true potential. While it might tick a lot of the genre checkboxes, these ideas are never expanded upon enough to help the game truly stand out. As a multiplayer adventure, there’s definitely fun to be had in working together to tackle swarms of enemies, but alone, you’ll be hard-pressed to keep engaged through to the end credits.

Nine Parchments Review — What Sorcery is This? via DualShockers

Nine Parchments, though wielding action RPG elements, works best as a party game. There are chaos and comedy to be had when you have three other friends sharing the screen, combining spells, chucking heals, and being sure not to stand in the fire. All of these mechanics combined with a lighthearted story lend themselves to a laugh-filled-couch-co-op game that should not be played alone.

Switch Review - 'Nine Parchments' via Worth Playing

Nine Parchments isn't necessarily a bad game. It's a very basic experience that lacks many different qualities, and from what I've witnessed, the title has to work out some major technical issues. However, many people will find a very enjoyable experience here, with a lot of unlockable characters and stuff to find. If you're into co-op experiences, you can't go wrong with Nine Parchments on Nintendo Switch. If you rely on online play, you may want to hold off until a patch is released to fix the connection and save file issues.

Review: Nine Parchments via VGProfessional

With Nine Parchments, Frozenbyte managed to create something new and fresh, even if doesn't achieve excellence. It remains a decent title to pick up, with a fair difficulty, lots to unlock, a colorful universe and a beautiful soundtrack.

Nine Parchments Review via Switch Player

Nine Parchments is a charming little dungeon-crawler that boasts some truly stunning visuals and intuitive gameplay, but suffers from a distinct lack of depth. Nevertheless, if you can get a group of pals together, you'll be in for a spellbinding time.

Blindly bought Nine Parchments since I was a fan of the Trine series. Didn’t care for Has Been Heroes. Needless to say, this game is FUN. Especially playing with other players online. It’s like Gauntlet and Diablo with more emphasis on mage-wizard classes. I’m having a blast. Haven’t put it down since I bought it.

The gameplay reminds me of Magicka which inspired me to try to get it, but I've been told by a few friends and read a good number of reviews that don't recommend this game at all.

I was really excited when this game was announced. The look reminded me of Diablo. But then I downloaded the demo. Kinda downhill from there. Visually looks good but the gameplay was dull and boring.
