No Rest for The Wicked Steam Deck Performance Analysis

Published on:

No Rest for The Wicked Steam Deck Performance Review – How Well Does it Play?

The game requires a limit of 30 fps. Despite that, it still has visual blips and quality drops in both gameplay and cutscenes. You can make graphical adjustments to minimise these issues but it is far from optimised for Steam Deck.

Gameplay wise it does suffer from lag, there is a delay in inputs on occasion and some text is really difficult to read on the smaller screen. Many Steam Deck users have also reported that the game crashes frequently, especially following the tutorial.

For now, it seems it is best to avoid this game if you’re a Steam Deck user. Hopefully as it edges nearer to a full release there will be some optimisation offered.
