Rive is a challenging side-scrolling shooter with tight platforming and a tenacious affection for over-the-top action.

Rime is still a moving experience. Beautiful, intimate, and fun. But Nintendo Switch version shows severe frame rate drops, and some technical issues in texture and details.

If you can play it on a more powerful platform, then you probably should.

Ironically, just when we received patches for RiME at 4K, this port arrives, one of the worst we've seen and that does not do justice to the level demonstrated by Tequila Works the last month of May. Late, bad and expensive.

RiME is a great game but one you should experience on another platform.

I'm extremely glad I played through to the end, as the narrative of RiME is fantastic, with a gut punch of an end reveal that belies the whimsical look and feel that reeled me in to begin with. This makes the poor technical execution all the more frustrating – had it been better, or had I played it on the PS4, I might have considered this one of the high points in an already stellar year of gaming. Instead, I am left grieving what could have –should have– been.

RiME is still a wonderful game, but the Switch version is a tremendous porting, that can seriously ruin an otherwise unforgettable experience. You can overlook the downgrade of the resolution, or even the lower graphic detail, but the palette is faded, the pop-in is terrible, the frame rate unstable, and all these combined can seriously discourage everyone.

RiME for Nintendo Switch is one of the worst ports in recent years, and you'd better ignore it. At least until developers will release a patch that fixes the performance and raising the resolution. And now, if you are interested in this project, it is better to try it on other platforms. And the game itself definitely deserves it.

The fabulously beautiful atmosphere is repeatedly destroyed by strong technical problems. Rime is not a poem on the switch.
