Review: Vigor – Stealthy Scavenging Marred By Technical Issues

Bohemian Rhapsody?

Bohemia Interactive’s Vigor, originally released on Xbox back in August of last year, finally arrives on Switch in this paid Founder’s Pack edition – with a free to play version due sometime before the end of this year – and what we’ve got here is a pretty decent looter shooter premise with some good ideas thrown into the mix, however, it’s also got a handful of nagging technical issues on Nintendo’s console that hold it back from becoming a properly enjoyable experience in its current form.

In Vigor players are tasked with traversing various maps located in and around a post-apocalyptic slice of Norway where they must seek out an endless supply of resources and equipment in order to build and upgrade their very own base, craft weapons and survive. Matches are set against a timer which sees radiation sweep through the play area once it runs out and it’s up to you to get in, orient yourself with your map, loot as much gear as possible and hightail it out of the nearest exit before either the radiation or another player takes you out.

Last week Puzzle Bobble, or Bust-a-Move as it’s known in North America, graced us with its presence. It wasn’t a contest, really – Japan absolutely stormed it with over two thirds of the vote. Europe came in second and the Bub and Bob-less North American cover failed to impress most of you.

Feature: The Unsung Genius Who Tempted Nintendo’s President To Pick Up A Joypad

“He could see the Promised Land, but wasn’t allowed to enter it”.

The world of video games, like any other, is full of seemingly inconsequential moments which cause ripples that become shockwaves that can determine not just the course of a single company, but the entire industry.

With Nintendo, there are numerous moments like this; Gunpei Yokoi’s prototype grabbing toy becoming the company’s first million-selling gadget in the form of the ‘Ultra Hand’ and turning Nintendo from humble playing-card maker to wildly successful toy firm virtually overnight is one example. Another is the last-gasp success of Donkey Kong, a game created by the then-unknown Shigeru Miyamoto with the intention of clearing stock of unsold Radar Scope arcade cabinets in North America. Had neither of these events transpired, then Nintendo’s future would have been very, very different.
