Trigger Witch Review (PlayStation 4)
This Trigger Witch Review shows us a stylized 2D twin-stick action game set in an odd open world where magic is outdated and firearms are the new way of life. Players assume the role of Colette, a prospective graduate from the Stock, an academy for Witchcraft and Triggery. After a mysterious man invades her realm, events are set in motion that turn Colette’s life upside-down, casting her as the sole heroine with enough firepower to restore peace.

Trigger Witch looks a lot like a Zelda game if Link had a “Falling Down” moment. What I mean is this game looks like a Zelda game but plays with magic and guns rather than swords. It’s a competent twin stick game that has you doing a very basic dungeon with a gauntlet at the end to teach you all the mechanics and controls. Once in the real world you have a lot of freedom to just go around and do what you want. When you start doing the missions then the world gets bigger and more things can happen. I loved the game for about an hour then the novelty wore off, the long extensive text boxes and fetch quest after fetch quest caught up to me and I just started to hate everything. Trigger Witch is fine but it does have pacing issues and doesn’t like variety as much as other games in the genre does. It’s a game you will play on and off rather than flat out and to be honest it kinda suits that.
