Good for Switch owners, it’s a good game. It’s also a last gen game so I’d hope the Switch would have a good port.

Sounds like an incredible port that they put a lot of effort into making it work. Hopefully it sells well, but it was kind of a shadow drop though.

Yeah for a game that was practically stealth-released (I wasn't even aware it was out and I follow Nintendo news habitually) they seem to have really gone the extra mile to make it look and run as good as it possibly can.

At first glance its hardly distinguishable from the PS4/Xbone versions, yet it still runs smoothly and has a pretty decent resolution. Definitely one to rank alongside Outlast II, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, and Hellblade as among the best Switch ports of a realistically styled current gen game.

I only learned of its launch when this video came on my youtube feed. I don't recall them ever announcing the launch date. From looking at it online, its $5 cheaper on the eshop, typically that at least gets mentioned.



     

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

I'd love to try it out, maybe I pick it up when I clean my backlog a bit more. Does it have motion aiming?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I really need to get back into this game. Of what I did play it was fun. Seems like a good port. It's definitely going to take more work, but hopefully they can get the 4th one out for you guys.

I think it's quite probable, if sales of this port justify it. Official recomended spec requirements on PC are some 2x between the SE3 and 4 (though difference between official minimum reqs is substantially bigger), so given that this runs well in quite decent resolution it should be more than doable.

Personally, I find SE4 to be the best (though I have a soft spot for first one as well), so hoping more people get to enjoy it.



Simply by the principle of merits, their game should be obligated to sell well.

A bit sad, they couldn't marketed it much ...

Well, cross-gen; the Switch game is a port of the PS4/Xbone version though, not the PS3/360 version.

Yeah, I had no clue it was out either. Hopefully this glowing DF coverage helps get the word out and it sells okay. A port this strong deserves to sell, and hopefully it does well enough that Sniper Elite 4 makes its away over next.



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

It's hard for me to get my head around why a publisher would fund a high quality port, but then leave it to die with no marketing.  Something must have changed between the time they okay-ed and budgeted for the porting work and the time it wrapped up.  I can't imagine that they would have planned it like this from the start.
