A questionable choice for a port with an even more questionable inclusion of gyroscopic controls. Turn them off and play with a Pro Controller, or ya know, on a PC or console.

Overwatch is still a great game at its core, but unfortunately, the Nintendo Switch version is a categorically subpar way to play it.

As a game, Overwatch is the best it's ever been. As a port, you're likely better off playing another version.

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.

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.

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.

Overwatch on the Nintendo Switch is exactly what it sounds like – a passable port for a videogame that is best played elsewhere.

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