Curious Expedition  

 

Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code to Curious Expedition on the Nintendo Switch. This downloadable only title is also available on the Playstation 4, and Xbox One. This game felt really familiar as I played it. I looked up Curious Expedition on the Family Friendly Gaming website and found The Curious Expedition on the Personal Computer (PC). The was dropped for the console release.

Curious Expedition reminds me of really old PC games my dad showed me years ago. We have a main map, and then we get into a more zoomed in map. We need to worry about water, food, sanity, and more in Curious Expedition. We can also only travel so far before we need to rest. The problem with resting is wild animals can come up after. Fighting animals in Curious Expedition can be a pain.

What is wrong with fighting animals in Curious Expedition? First off we roll dice to see what we can do. Maybe we can attack, defend, or do some other things. I wound up dying a lot in Curious Expedition because the animals are over powered, and my weapons are really weak. I get not hurting a gorilla with a gun, but a big cat? Come on now, One shot should send that thing packing. Not in Curious Expedition.

Some of the issues families will have with Curious Expedition are evolution theory religious belief, violence, blood, sacrifices to false gods, alcohol, loss of sanity from traveling, and more. Curious Expedition tries to be historically accurate with certain historical figures and traveling, yet it drops the ball in things like: “In the Year of our Lord.” God is referenced in Curious Expedition. There are also various other religions referenced in Curious Expedition.

Visually Curious Expedition did not age well over these last four years. The audio is okay in my book now. If you are into worldly retro traveling titles then Curious Expedition might interest you. I will admit Curious Expedition is not my flavor. I am not big on this game personally. Even the easiest difficulty is hard in Curious Expedition. Expect to die multiple times learning how to play Curious Expedition.
