VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "The Last Case of Benedict Fox feels like 2023's definitive example of the precarious balance of a Metroidvania's core tenets, even when a cool premise compliments the genre. Even though Lovecraftian fiction in games isn't breaking new ground, Plot Twist found a niche anyway thanks to some creative ideas and a nuanced human/demon dynamic. But not a single hour went by without me ping-ponging between positive & negative emotions, from beginning to end. It's all the more frustrating to say this since the main fix is about mindset more than anything else, as though another 'developer draft' that respected the team’s limitations would’ve made it soar. Instead, this case feels better left cold."
Publisher Rogue Games and developer Plot Twist have announced side-scrolling action adventure platformer The Last Case of Benedict Fox: Definitive Edition for PlayStation 5.
