Overwatch - Switch
Top Critic Average
If you only own a Switch then this is easily a must-buy. If you own it on another platform and love it, you'll have a great time on Switch too. Overwatch on Switch, what a time to be alive.
If your Switch is the only gaming platform you have and you’re interested in playing Overwatch, you shouldn’t feel any hesitation jumping into it. If you’ve played on other platforms and want a portable option and/or really want to try playing with gyro-controls, there’s a bit of a tradeoff due to graphical downgrades, but to me, the Switch version feels worth it in the end.
Overwatch continues to be a brilliant game.
As a game, Overwatch is the best it's ever been. As a port, you're likely better off playing another version.
Overwatch is still a great game at its core, but unfortunately, the Nintendo Switch version is a categorically subpar way to play it.
Overwatch on Nintendo Switch was a good experience. Knowing that you could play it everywhere you want feels good. But lack of 60 FPS of gameplay and low graphics quality on docked mod with big screen feels kinda sluggish.

Overwatch Nintendo Switch brings over the full experience which is great, but it does sacrifice some elements of the gameplay to achieve this.
Although the Switch version is a new way to play, it really doesn't add anything new to the game. If you were a fan before, you'll either want to play it again or you won't. But if you're a new player picking Overwatch up for the first time, then you'll very much enjoy the experience on Nintendo.
Overwatch on Nintendo Switch is a decent port. Sure, it might not have all of the visual bells and whistles as other platforms, but it is essentially the same experience. From a technical perspective, it is a less than optimal means of enjoying one of the best team-based online shooters available. Although the issues are noticeable, they never serve to ruin the game in a meaningful way.
Despite that, it's still a personal favorite of mine. The structure of the game, with its changes to matchmaking and further exploitation of loot boxes, feels worse nowadays than it did three years ago, but the core, fast-paced experience of actually playing the game remains as fun as it's ever been. Overwatch is an absolute must-play for fans of multiplayer shooters, and while the Switch version makes a number of compromises, it does not compromise how incredible Overwatch is.
