Overwatch - Switch
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 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.

Overwatch on Nintendo Switch is a prime example of a fantastic game marred by a sub-par 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.
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.

We’d give Overwatch a recommendation, but with the caveat that you should consider first why you’re buying it. If you intend on playing it plenty when undocked, we can’t recommend it enough, but if you intend on mostly playing on the TV, consider first buying it elsewhere.
Overwatch remains one of the most compelling and experimental shooters in the world right now. Blizzard Entertainment's commitment to innovative new heroes, modes and responding to community feedback is unparalleled – and a treat to watch.
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.

On the Nintendo system, the game will fare its absolute best with the uninitiated.
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.
