Overwatch - Switch
If you don't care about portability and have Overwatch elsewhere then give the port a pass. Maybe once cross-save, cross-progression, and/or cross-play are added this port will be more compelling to existing fans, but for those that believe Overwatch isn't Overwatch when the competitive side isn't at its best then this port will only drive them mad. Overwatch is a great port for new fans and casual fans of the game, and no one else.
No matter the platform, Overwatch is still Overwatch. Everything from every other version of the game is here, warts and all. Gyro aiming and portable play, while nice, don't offer enough of a reason to choose this version over another if you already own the game on a different platform. But if it's your first time or just want to play on Switch, go for it; this is a fine port.
Overwatch on Switch is a fun experience that, while technically having everything from the other platforms, misses the very competitive edge that so many fans want from the game.
Overwatch on Nintendo Switch is a prime example of a fantastic game marred by a sub-par port.
Overwatch for Nintendo Switch is a full-fledged Overwatch with nice graphics and relevant content, which is better to play on a large TV with a convenient PRO-controller in your hands. But even so, due to the reduced frame rate, this version looks less interesting to buy. Playing on other platforms will give you more positive emotions and will be cheaper. On the other hand, if you don't have other options, you can try Overwatch for Nintendo Switch. Blizzard's ingenious gaming formula, even with limitations, still works like a Swiss watch.

Despite the hardware limitations, circumvented by falling to 30 frames per second, the competitive shooter made by Blizzard turns out to be a valuable job. A conversion that aims first and foremost to reach new players, pulling them into what is certainly one of the generation's cults.

In all, Overwatch is a great hero shooter no matter where you play it.
Overwatch remains a stylish, exciting, and most of all fun game that feels at home on the Switch. While there were some concessions that had to be made to get it there, for most gamers this is a great version of a great game.
On the Nintendo system, the game will fare its absolute best with the uninitiated.
Overwatch finally makes it to the Nintendo Switch but other than giving its fans an option on a Nintendo platform, this version is overall subpar experience. The framerate drop compared to the other versions, which falls even deeper in some moments and visual flaws make this feel like a downgraded experience, while the lack of crossplatform compatibility leaves this version isolated and its handheld advantage in impaired by the requirement of an internet connection.
