West of Loathing was the first purchase for my newly acquired Switch. I hadn't played any video games for many years and WoL was the perfect game to ease back into it. I'm nearly 60 and I appreciate that combat didn't require my ever-slowing reflexes in order to survive.

I found the game to be entertaining, easy to play and a great way to relax after a long day. The puzzles are solvable and never got to the point where I wanted to give up because I couldn't figure one out.

My only complaints would be that once you've reached the end, there really isn't any replay value and I would have liked to have had more to explore. Although considering the low cost, there is plenty of value here.
