    At the end of the day, Crypt of the Necrodancer is a trip. You hop on for the ride, enjoy some groovy tunes, and overcome a slew of challenges along the way. Even though every run is different, I always felt I was in control. It’s hard to get on the beat, but once over that initial hump, Crypt of the Necrodancer becomes one of the most intriguing experiences available on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Don't sleep on it.

    CA roguelike at heart with a rhythm-game soul, Crypt Of The NecroDancer is a sublime experience that’s a must-play for fans of the genre(s). Its upbeat, uptempo take on dungeon crawling is infectious, and there’s enough content here to last even the savviest of spelunkers for many, many dance-fuelled dives into the depths — if you’ve never tangoed with the COTN, this fully-featured Switch edition is the perfect way to jump in.

    Wonderfully hectic, exquisitely manic, we love this little jewel of a game. It's also jam-packed with content and a marvelous soundtrack.

    It adds freshness and originality to a classic genre, mixing the best of rhythm and dungeon crawler games. Unfortunately, the overall look is weak, but the story is interesting and there is a variety of characters, together with a great soundtrack and the accessibility of the mechanics make it into an experience that is addictive and endearing that you can't miss.

    Crypt of the NecroDancer has risen once again to bring a hefty amount of rhythm action goodness to Switch. If this is your jam, then its definitely worth picking up again for portable and local co-op play. If you haven't played before and aren't sure if you'll dig it then the Switch version is a content-rich way to give it a whirl and find out.

The controls are incredibly responsive and it looks just as beautiful as the other versions of the game. The soundtrack is superb as always and is still the best part of the game. The addition of the new character is a rather nice addition too. I would highly recommend this if you have never played it, because once you have, you'll be humming along to the music for months to come.

    It is already a proven masterpiece, but I do not know why I should enjoy it with the switch.

Maybe if it was considerably cheaper I'd have expected a bit less from the game but definitely a disappointment all-around. Great soundtrack however. Expand
