Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Best looking Switch game so far?

Wolfenstein II is the ducks nuts, followed by Doom.
They don't look as impressive as they potentially can due to the lower rendering resolution, but they are still impressive technical achievements all things considered.

Smash takes it for it's stylized approach, it may not be pushing the most effects, but it's overall package is certainly fantastic.

Yeah Xenoblade Chronicles 2 does look pretty bad on the Wii U. A black screen is just not my aesthetic. 

Contemporary art at it's finest !

Oh yeah, Curl just reminded me of Yoshi's Crafted World lol. The aesthetic are truly pleasing in this one ^^ Would go with my other 4 games I mentionned.

Yoshi's Crafted World. I love the detail to why everything is the way that it is.



Probably Hellblade Sesuna's Sacrifice. Even after impressive ports like Doom and Wolfenstein I'm still shocked a game that technically demanding runs so well and looks so good on Switch.

As far as first-party games are concerned, probably Mario Odyssey. I don't think that game gets enough credit for how demanding it is.

Big world design too like BOTW or just the art style only?

Yep both. 

Well, then need Monolith Soft again



Depends on what you mean by “best looking.”

Doom and Wolfenstein 2 are both definitely technically impressive, and play GREAT on the Switch, but are also pretty clearly downgraded from WAY more powerful hardware, which can become especially apparent in handheld mode.

I’d say, overall, Super Mario Odyssey looks the best all around, with XC2 being a runner up largely thanks to its performance in console mode.

Agreed on both counts.

With regards to Odyssey, attaining 60fps in an open-ended game is not an easy feat as the developer has a lot less control over what is on screen at any one time versus a more linear game, so hitting that mark in Odyssey's worlds while looking as beautiful as it does is nothing to sniff at. 



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
