Doom for Nintendo Switch is a straightforward port that runs well and looks pretty good. Which ultimately, is everything it needed to be. Even though it's a little fuzzy, smashing through a legion of demons with a fun set of weapons and upgrades feels great, and especially when you throw in arcade mode and the much-improved multiplayer arena battles, this is the best mature-themed shooter you can currently get on the Switch.

A seemingly impossible port is carried off surprisingly gracefully, with the old school shooter action working very well as a handheld game.

If you're excited about the prospect of playing first-person shooters on Switch, Doom is a good bell-weather. Personal physical limitations and hand size seem to be the biggest variable when it comes to enjoying the genre. But even if hands are perfectly built to slaughter demon hordes, you're still going to have to swallow some iffy visuals.

Bethesda did it -- they ported Doom to a Nintendo console. It might not be the prettiest version, but it works, and it was enough to get me to play it all over again. Nintendo learned a lot from its failure on the Wii U, and its ability to welcome in more mature games on the system is something it hasn't done in quite a while. It's a message for all the prospective first and third parties alike -- keep doing it.

Brutal, fast paced and fun, Doom pays homage to classic FPS. Nintendo Switch version, at 30 FPS (unstable), is not as spectacular as the original released last year, but remains fresh and it´s unique in its genre.

Those hoping for the same on the Nintendo Switch should probably avoid purchasing Doom for Nintendo's platform as it's easily the worst place to play it on.

Knowing the limitations of this console, DOOM manages to mantain its essence and offers wild and amazing combats. An incredible game that is a must-buy for Nintendo's new console..

While it's fantastic to have a shooter out on the Switch at last, I still prefer my PC version.

Doom on Switch is a triumph of the human spirit. It is just one more feather in Nintendo's cap as third party developers are flocking to the Switch. Panic Button deserves extremely high praise for this port. It may not be perfect, but Doom on Switch offers players a new way to play one of the finest shooters to come out in recent history.

This is a most faithful version of the 2016 game of the year contender and something of a technical marvel.

Doom in portable version is an experience to try at least once and to enjoy completely, despite some graphic limits and controls in need of a careful calibration.

Doom arrives to Nintendo Switch with lots of blood, the same experience we lived in PS4, Xbox One & PC, and an important graphics-downgrade in order to make it fin in the tiny portable/hybrid Nintendo Switch console.

Almost everything I wanted out of the port, but it is only worth picking up if you plan on playing handheld only.

The less capable hardware does force a lot of sacrifices, but fewer than many might have expected. This results in a less visually pleasing game, but still a solid one that delivers on the important stuff. And the game really takes new shape when played in handheld mode, presenting one of the best looking and playing shooters ever found on a portable console.

Bethesda pulled off quite the trick with Doom, giving us the first real AAA third-party game experience on the Nintendo Switch. What it lacks in graphical power, it makes up for in portability, and the fact that the complete, unadulterated campaign and multiplayer modes made it over intact is an achievement other studios should take note of.

Doom on Switch is an amazing port that looks incredibly great in a portable mode, but really outdated if you play it in home console mode on a large TV. Nevertheless, it's still Doom with meaty and fun gameplay. If you prefer a portable gaming or want to be able to play Doom on the road, you can safely buy this version of the game. In other cases it's better to buy it on PC, PS4 or Xbox One.

If playing Doom on the go is a huge factor, it gets no better than this. It doesn't look the clearest or run the smoothest, but 90% of the time players can still enjoy one hell of a game.
