The Persistence Switch Review | Buy or Avoid?


Today we’re taking a look at The Persistence on the Nintendo Switch. Can this make the transition from VR to the Nintendo Switch or is it best left alone. Lets find out in our review today of the The Persistence on the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite.

A brutal sci-fi survival horror experience
The Persistence challenges you to survive aboard a doomed deep space colony starship in the year 2521. Stranded, malfunctioning and caught in the inexorable pull of a black hole, “The Persistence” is overrun with a crew mutated into horrific & murderous aberrations. It’s down to you, a clone of security officer Zimri Eder, to make your way deeper in the decks of The Persistence to repair the systems and prevent the ship from being torn apart. Gather resources, upgrade abilities and fabricate an arsenal of weapons in this brutal sci-fi horror roguelike.

Key Features

Death is just the beginning
The only thing that stands in the way of saving the starship is an array of clone printed monstrosities, constantly replenished by the ship’s malfunctioning clone printer. If any encounter with these foes proves fatal, Zimri’s consciousness is uploaded into a new host body, ready for the next attempt.

An ever-changing labyrinth
The colony starship has a self-configuring macrostructure which can alter its internal architecture – and due to the catastrophic malfunction, that’s exactly what will happen. Upon awakening in a new cloned body or on teleporting between decks, the layout of the starship will change each time. Each and every expedition into The Persistence will be unique with different, items and gear to collect & upgrade.

Enhance, upgrade and augment
The technology of the 26th century allows for genetic augmentation and manipulation of dark matter technology. Resequence Zimri’s DNA to improve health, toughness and defensive abilities or even harvest crew DNA to create cloned bodies of crewmembers to inhabit, each with their own unique abilities.

Explore, evade, fight and gather resources
The mutated horde won’t think twice about tearing Zimri limb from limb. Use the environment to scope out, stalk and gain the tactical advantage in either evading or attempting to take them down. Explore the decks of the ship and gather resources, weapons and suit customizations to aid survival in the journey deeper into the dark and terrifying depths.

  1. Horror fans! We potentially have another one for you here! Who's been excited for this and what does everyone think of the transition from VR to the Switch! Thanks for all the support everyone!

  2. You can change the turn speed in the options. I did this immediately last night on PS4.
    I would recommend this game for 19.99 or less. If you like the idea of stealth dead space you will really enjoy it.

  3. I saw a review of this on another channel and the playback quality was woeful and put me off but your production value seems to represent the game better… certainly well enough to peak my interest. You writing continues to provide us with well structured and interesting reviews. I am now looking forward to this one, despite your reservations about the controls. It looks like a gripping story…

  4. I really want to try this game out, but I only have a Switch lite so I'm skeptical it's not going to be worth it, not being able to use it in VR.
