Elden Ring isn’t on Switch, and that’s a shame because it’s shaping up to be one of 2022’s most acclaimed titles if early reviews are anything to go by.

OpenCritic – which, like rival Metacritic, aggregates review scores – has just confirmed that an hour or so after the review embargo ended, Elden Ring has topped its ‘best game of all time’ list, overtaking Super Mario Odyssey and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (which are 2nd and 3rd respectively).

However, over at Metacritic, Elden Ring is (at the time of writing) ranked as the 13th greatest game of all time; Ocarina of Time is still in the top spot, with a Metascore of 99.

Our pals over at Push Square have posted a ‘review in progress’, but have this to say:

Elden Ring feels like the definitive FromSoftware game. With a refined combat system packing new ideas and an open world perfect for exploration, it sets a new benchmark for titles of this ilk to strive for. While its technical faults and underwhelming side content may be sources of disappointment, what the core experience offers is spectacular. It won’t suddenly convert those turned off by previous entries into fans, but FromSoftware lovers should probably consider Elden Ring an essential playthrough. We just need a bit more time to confirm those thoughts.

Are you planning on picking up Elden Ring on another system this week? There’s no shame in admitting it! Let us know with a comment below.
