Witcher 3 impressions

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Witcher 3 impressions

Gaming journalists were brought in to play Witcher 3 in handheld mode.

Seems like it holds up impossibly well despite how weak the Switch is compared to the XB1 and PS4.

720P docked. 540P handheld.  Both dynamic.

The framerate seems to be on par with the other console versions, with similar slowdown in the swamp area but mostly keeping steady.  And even with the downgrades it still looks like Witcher 3.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Best game this gen. Anybody who didnt play this game should asap.



Can't wait, should be great on the switch



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

Looks and runs impressive considering the hardware!



It really seems a good porting, on par of Doom or Wolfenstein 2. Moreover, eventually, with a day one patch or a few later it might be much more improve. Anyway, congrats to the devolopers.



I do love that this game in particular was one of the "it might run X but it will never run a game like Witcher 3" arguments when the system was revealed first or even when it started to do well and be successful.

Like I said then and I'll say now, you can port anything to anything as long as you think there's money to be made there, we were still getting some ports of titles from the PS3 back onto the PS2 for years after launch just because millions of households had the PS2, regardless of how that system had 16x less memory than the PS3.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Nah, I'd say this is considerably more impressive than Doom or Wolfenstein.



The Switcher!

Magic, ladies and gentlemen!

CDPR really outdid themselves here on porting the game to the Switch.

Yeah, it is an open world game, that already ran at 30 fps on bigger consoles, while Doom and Wolfenstein 2 were corridor shooters downgraded from 60 fps on PS4/Xbox One to 30 fps at resolutions below 480p in handheld mode. This is a big, beautiful open world RPG that runs in 540p in handheld mode.
