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.

If you're looking for a well-made first person shooter with plenty of action and soul, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus ticks all the right boxes on the Nintendo Switch as developers Panic Button have successfully ported this game onto a far less powerful console that works like a treat, even with the slight graphical hit!

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 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.

Wolfenstein II on Switch is the real deal, offering an only slightly degraded version of the bloody and memorable adventure

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.

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.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus for Nintendo Switch packs the same brilliant punch as it did on other platforms.

Wolfenstein 2 is also on the switch a spectacle, but graphic fetishists should play the PS4 or Xbox One version because of the technical losses.

The game looks solid, the intensity of the original release is still intact, and the gameplay doesn't drop off much when playing it portable. It's a must-have for Nintendo Switch owners dying for a first-person shooter.
