Trust me, you are not the only one.

Yeah, not the only one.

While I think what they've managed to pull off is a feat in its own, I find this approach to porting such a terrible practice.

I know there are people around here who haven't played the game that are excited for this port, but, if you have the option, do yourself a favour and play it somewhere else if you're really interested in the game.

That's what I was thinking, there is no way I'd play this on the switch after playing it on the PS4 pro where even on that console it didn't run perfectly. Doom was a nice looking port on the switch, this unfortunately is a hard pass.

Some folks might want to play it in handheld form though.

As someone who only plays docked and has this pre-ordered, I'm fine with how it looks. I've thoroughly enjoyed games that looked worse.



Way too many compromises for me, makes no sense not playing it on another platform. Runs and looks terrible, although play on the switch if you truly wish.

I'm one of those who don't quite understand playing this type of games in handheld mode, however I do recognize there are people who want that (for whatever reason).

As for docked...as I said, if there is an option to play it somewhere else, do yourself a favour...you will like (or not) the game on its own merits either way, but this version, no matter how much devs have put effort in it, doesn't look very good.



Maybe there's something wrong with my eyes but to me, the game looks fantastic. Especially considering it's on the Switch.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Probably nothing wrong with your eyes, you just need to compare it side by side with other platforms. For me, it's way too much of a downgrade. And I only play my switch at home, so portability isn't worth the downgrade. 



I almost exclusively use my Switch at home, so no need to purchase this for me even if I didn't own it on PS4 already. Good for anyone who plays portables, most impressive port to date. Much better than Panic Button.

Impressive feat. Though I played it on the pro and didn't like it.

I can get it for free and still won't be downloading it. I think they could have gotten more juice out of it, look at what was achieved with Zelda.

Uh. Sounds like you want them to change the art style. From a technical standpoint Witcher 3 is leagues ahead of BOTW.
