Savage Age Review (Nintendo Switch OLED)

Savage Age Review, In a long time gone, the earth was populated by thick foliage and thick oozing marshes. With fear and respect in their hearts, desperate pioneers vying for survival built totems that signified their existence as arduously passed down the torches of their legacy to future generations.

Savage Age Review Pros:

  • Nice graphics.
  • 1GB download size.
  • Action adventure gameplay.
  • Tutorial signs as you play.
  • The tips menu serves as an instruction manual for the controls.
  • World map level select.
  • Constant checkpoints.
  • Near instant respawn time.
  • It’s more of a puzzle game with basic resource management and crafting.
  • Run up to trees and rocks to farm the resources.
  • You can throw resources using the right stick for aiming.
  • Food can be found and eaten to restore stamina which is needed for running and farming.
  • Throw resources at craftable locations to build.
  • A 3D world with an isometric camera angle.
  • Stealth mechanics, grab a bush and hide in it as you move around.
  • Crafting tables will have a list of needed resources and materials and once you deposit them it makes the item for you.
  • Hidden green skulls on each level.
  • You can kill some animals for resources and these can be used for sacrificing and crafting.
  • Saves regularly.
  • The game does try something Ive not seen before in that it combines many genres into a cohesive experience.

Savage Age Review Cons:

  • Cannot remap the controls.
  • The performance is really bad, very stuttery and slowdown messes up timing.
  • It honestly feels like it has button input lag.
  • Tutorial signs are not always clear.
  • Lining up so you actually farm resources feels hit and miss with no clear method to nail it every time.
  • No camera control leads to cheap deaths falling off the world.
  • The aiming reticule isn’t the same as the red line so you can accidentally make mistakes like not throwing far enough.
  • The overall pace of everything is that it is slow.
  • Little replay value.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
