Overwatch - Switch
Bringing Overwatch in your pocket with Nintendo Switch was a challenge, because the fast FPS style of the game is highly demanding. But Blizzard managed to make few sacrifices to keep a fluid experience for the players. However, the TV mode is lacking in graphics and you will have to start from scratch.

It’s honestly really hard to rate Overwatch. In the time I played I enjoyed it enough to make sure I had Nintendo Switch Online time to play beyond the initial week and considered finally purchasing it for PlayStation, but it’s easy to see why this is the worst version. Still, it has all the previous content, enough disadvantages and reasons to keep the player base on the easier side and more to normally net this an Editor’s Choice award, it’s just the Switch’s shortcomings that hold it back.
Overwatch is an awesome looking game and a pretty good addition to the Nintendo Switch's library and with more than enough content to keep any player busy for a long time. While versions on other platforms feel more precise, this Legendary Edition is worth the $39.99 cost if you're a fan of the genre looking to play both at home or on the go.
Overwatch has come to the Switch with a solid port, but it may not be the ideal game for the console.

Overwatch on the Nintendo Switch is exactly what it sounds like – a passable port for a videogame that is best played elsewhere.
Overwatch is another great port for the Nintendo Switch, it runs great, looks great and is a lot of fun to boot. There is a lot more content to experience than when the game first launched and more to keep you invested. I really enjoy playing this game on the Switch and its perfect for short bursts of fun in handheld mode.
In the end, Overwatch works well as a port. It's almost boring to talk about, as it aims to be as faithful to the existing versions as possible. It's not a technical marvel, and that may rightfully turn you off, but it's a feature-complete and portable version that is best for quick drop-in matches when you just want a casual match in Overwatch.
Not necessary the best version of overwatch but it is a solid option for players that didn't get a chance to try it on console/PC, or prefer to play games on the go.

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.
