Shadows of Adam was fun on the Switch. The story was a little weak but more or less OK; the music was catchy; the turn-based, resource-management combat was a blast.
What I hated was the game’s small risk of crashing on any loading screen. It crashed less than 10 times in my whole playthrough, and the ability to save anywhere meant I didn’t lose much progress, but it was still an annoyance. I had to redo the first boss fight because of a crash.
