    Immersive, involving, disturbing but also beautiful, Smoke and Sacrifice puts the player in a world where RPG and survival horror elements come into play in an effort that will allow the exploration of an immense world and which will keep players mired in its adventure for long, enjoyable hours.

    Smoke and Sacrifice is a game that's worth your time and money. There's a lot of game here, and a lot of replayability, though the narrative loses its surprises after the first run. At the budget price of $25 USD, it's hard not to say yes to Smoke and Sacrifice. Some better choices could have been made with the UI and the save system, but overall SnS is just as good a survival RPG as Don't Starve, with a far more serious tone and story.

    A dark and twisted fantasy RPG which uses elements of survival games to great effect, Smoke and Sacrifice is a beautiful piece of indie software. Tonally and physically challenging, the artistry on display sets it apart from its peers, creating a foreboding world that’s well worth being drawn into.

    Smoke and Sacrifice is a discreetly crafted survival-game, absolutely canonical in gameplay, enhanced by an intriguing storyline.

    The title is, in fact, a more than discrete but a little too simple survival that, unfortunately, stumbles on a decidedly elementary control system and on a basic repetitiveness in the crafting and exploratory mechanics that, in the long run, can bore.

    Despite some of the aggravations, Smoke and Sacrifice is a fascinating entry into the Switch lineup, and is worth a look for players pining for a crafting-based action RPG on that system.

    It’s a shame that such lovely art is paired with monotonous environments, a rudimentary story, and subpar combat and crafting elements. My advice? Smoke something else.
