Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus for Nintendo Switch is a respectable port of one of the best games released last year, and greatest shooters of this generation. Its brilliantly written cast of characters and excellent gunplay come through well enough even viewed through muddy textures and minor frame rate drops. It's not the prettiest or smoothest way to experience Wolfenstein 2, but it gets the job done.

Some of the most fearless and idiosyncratic storytelling ever seen in a video game, married to one of the most viciously entertaining shooters of the generation.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is still the same great game on Nintendo Switch, but only if you play it in docked mode.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus thrives on the Nintendo Switch

On the one hand, it's really cool that Panic Button was able to port Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus to Nintendo Switch. .... On the other hand, the only thing the Switch version has going for it is that it's portable. In every other regard, Wolfenstein 2 is better on other platforms.

Wolfenstein II makes some acceptable compromises to run on Switch

This port is, simply put, just ok. The graphic quality has been downgraded significantly in order to make the core of the experience, which is the gunplay, still smooth and enjoyable even in handheld mode. Definitely, Switch is not the best place to play Wolfenstein II but, at least, the gameplay is good enough to make killing nazis on the way a total joy.

Panic Button brings all the nazi-punching action from the 2017 FPS to the Nintendo Switch with great results. When playing in portable mode the experience can be compromised, but in TV never ceases to amaze how great everything has been translated, from the frantic shootings to the charisma of the cast.

A good version for Nintendo Switch of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. It is true that it has taken almost a year to arrive, it is true that it is suffering a low resolution and graphics but the playable experience is still intact. A fantastic violent and frenetic shooter to enjoy anywhere thanks to Switch. And there are very few.

With Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Panic Button is reconfirmed as a very talented developer to bring triple A titles on Switch.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on the Nintendo Switch is the worst version of a great shooter.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus plays great on the Nintendo Switch, though if you have a chance to play the game docked, it is definitely the way to go. But either way, New Colossus is an amazing game, with a rich universe, gonzo cinematic storytelling, and great-feeling combat. Not having played the first title is no reason not to jump into Wolfenstein II, and the Switch is a completely viable way to experience the touching lunacy of this series. Highly recommended.

Although this game is worthy of a good score, I cannot recommend this version to anyone who owns a PC or other console, as having it playable on the go is not worth the premium it costs to do so. However, if the Switch is the only console you own and you have been waiting for the port to arrive, then go ahead and grab it. It's one helluva great game and, quite honestly, a miracle of coding.

The technical shortcomings do have me hesitant to recommend this over the other versions if you have the means to play them, but if the Switch is the only console you have, you'll still get your money's worth, without a doubt.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is possibly the best shooter campaign available on the Nintendo Switch, with some impressive graphics. The image can be occasionally blurry, and the game definitely runs better elsewhere, but this is a great example of technical wizardry on the behalf of Panic Button, not to mention a brilliant shooter for all Nintendo Switch owners to enjoy.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus for Switch is another amazing port from Bethesda that manages to look pretty and works well on the Nintendo's portable console. As in the case with Doom, this is a great opportunity to play one of the best shooters anywhere, without being tied to the TV. If you prefer to play at home on a large 4K-display, it's better to buy a version for PC, PS4 PRO or Xbox One X.

At least one aspect of the gameplay inadvertently confirms the feeling that Blazkowicz is just a shell of a person.

Panic Studio's port of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus may be a game of compromises, but the amitious effort still manages to capture not only the complete content of the original game but also its very essence.

There are better-looking versions of this wonderful shooter, but Wolfenstein II on the Switch is a technical marvel in its own right.
