Wolfenstein: Youngblood - Nintendo Switch
The co-op Wolfenstein spin-off lives on Switch, but inconsistent frame rates and visuals make it the weakest version.
A fun and enjoyable co-op shooter (and another porting masterclass), but one that both improves and diminishes its own winning formula.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood offers exceptional gunplay the series is known for and brings a lot of interesting elements to the franchise for the first time. While the character-upgrades, sound design, and world are fantastic, the mission structure, lack of story, and awful checkpoint system bog down the experience.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood gives the same spectacle and destruction to Switch through another impressive port by Panic Button.

Unfortunately the result is something that many fans of the series weren't asking for. Instead of an over-the-top story filled with addictingly fun gameplay, we got a diluted adventure filled with punishing enemies that require grinding to overcome. Add in microtransactions, no way to communicate, and muddy graphics and you're better off passing this one by.
All told, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a rather baffling experience that doesn’t quite seem to fully understand what it’s trying to be.
