Overwatch - Switch
Top Critic Average
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.
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.
Overwatch on Nintendo Switch should've arrived a while ago but even with its multiple compromises offers a mostly good way to play the game.
Overwatch Nintendo Switch brings over the full experience which is great, but it does sacrifice some elements of the gameplay to achieve this.
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 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.
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.
In all, Overwatch is a great hero shooter no matter where you play it.
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.

Overwatch on Switch offers the same, fantastically competitive experience that players have been enjoying on other formats for the past few years. While the necessary drop in frame rate is disappointing, it's clearly helped to maintain the quality elsewhere, and does nothing to diminish Overwatch's position as one of the best games of all time.
