Despite a noticeably lower resolution, Mortal Kombat 11 for Nintendo Switch with 60 FPS in mind, succeeding to make for a fun experience.
Haha only a Nintendo console could get a pass for subpar multiplatform releases. "Looks good enough" would never be tolerated on an xbox or playstation multiplatform release. Just because its portable doesn't justify it, the switch is not the PS vita it's still considered a home console.
A home console that you can play anywhere without a Wifi connection to buying the game twice. I have a PS4 Pro, but I am getting the game on Switch because of portability. Sounds like someone needs to learn that their own bias opinion =/= the needs of all gamers.
You're seriously telling us that you'd rather get the blurry switch version of mk11 for the portability over gorgeous visuals on a big screen(the way it should be played) ? Lmfao! Sure bro. Enjoy preferring to play Mk11 with hand held controls and subhd.
Blows my mind how some people get so offended over what console they like best. I love Sony and Nintendo both and totally understand why someone would prefer having this on the Switch. The elitism of some nerds here is crazy
Only a blind fool would buy this on Switch over the PS4 version if they have both consoles. Playing the game on the go isn't an excuse either as the joy-cons would be a complete nightmare for this game.
Bro your dumb u see how huge ps4 and xbox is. Shit takes way to much space. Not to mention u have to constantly uninstall games
The ps4 and the xbox one s are relatively small consoles.
You’re right! The switch docked is supposed to be a home console and there’s no excuse for it to run games at sub hd resolutions. The Xbox one got destroyed for running games at 900p but the switch gets a pass and it’s even a generation newer. I hope they do bring out a more powerful switch because the current one is a joke. I have zero need for a handheld I wanted a home console. I’d never buy a multiplat on the switch.
Xbox One was originally $100 more than the PS4 at launch despite being weaker, that's why people knocked it. The Switch is basically a heavily modified Nvidia Shield Tablet, of course it doesn't match the power of something over 10x as big.
Same, I'd NEVER buy a multi-platform game on Switch. PS4 Pro every time for me.
It's a portable device. This is the first ever fully fledged Mortal Kombat on a handheld.
Your partially right. Your half wrong because mk was on the game gear (full game), game boy (full game), and Vita (full game). There were probably more, but these are the most memorable that I've played on
You must have forgotten about MK9 on Vita.
My bad. I didn't know the Vita version of MK 9 was fully fledged.
Well, only Nintendo has a portable version of MK11 :v
Shhh, Just buy it on a different console I just made your life better, by letting you know that you can do that.
“Just because its portable doesn't justify it” I’m curious, how could you play in portable mode on other consoles? If you can’t, then this is very justified for the Switch. Plus, the article clearly stated “succeeding to make for a fun experience”. I mean, what else do you want? The game will be fun. Isn’t that all that that matter?
I feel like all the ponies are missing the "great to play" point that was made lol. The cherry picking is real...
Wtf.. you the console police? Go back to playing your games and I'll go back to playing the best reviewed games of all time. Haha! I'll enjoy carrying my Switch on deployment, enjoy lugging your big pos around.
Does the switch being a good console keep you up at night or what?
Comments like these with their like/dislike ratio remind me why I spend most of my time on other sites. ‘But but but it’s not the PSVita’ It still has the same limitations that any portable consoles have. It has to have a low power draw, a battery, a screen, and still remain compact. How ridiculous do you have to be to not admit any of that?
It's not the PS Vita, but it's still 1/7th the size of a Playstation 4. So yeah, hardware limitations due to size still apply, something that anyone with an ounce of logic can understand. So yes, it's justifiable because it's portable. Because the reason it's portable is precisely because it's so small.
I guess since I will have it on PC I could say I guess your console versions look "good enough"
You seen any PC gameplay for it yet? It's out next week and I haven't found any
No...its because when I purchase my MS/Sony system...I expect a powerful system to play great games. When I buy Nintendo...I expect great games. Fun. Not looking for power with Nintendo. We all know whats up. That's why It's said
They are getting games at 400p and 480p and are happy with it, and still have the nerve to call out when Xbox One S is 900p, when the Switch is more expensive then the One S.
"Good enough" has been the Switch motto from the start..
"best portable option" has been the Switch motto from the start
"best portable option"...for SOME current and last gen 3rd party games. FIXED like 90% of multiplats are missing on it!
I'm not a PC gamer at all, but most laptops would destroy the Switch.
Go and Buy a GPD its the best portable device around.
Sweet. Cant wait to play this game wherever I go!
Enjoy those unusable joy-cons. ;) Better hope you have a table somewhere so you can at least use a pro-controller.
I modded my joycons to have a dpad. It's really nice and clicky. Feels great. On a side note, guess it's wrong of me to enjoy fighting games portably. Sorry yall, won't happen again I promise.
"looks good enough" is the new "it's shit but i don't care"
"looks good enough" means it still meets home console standards, but you can play it anywhere. Your comments are the new "I am bias but I don't care"
Well, considering home console standards means ps4 standards, it doesn't meet them. If say it meets portable or mobile standards, but saying anything beyond that is just lying. Sorry, but anytime the phrase "good enough" is used, you know it's gonna be bad. It's pretty much EA's stance before they start adding loot boxes.
Seems to me that you are able to play a full console game on the go without any cuts to gameplay. Sounds like the definition of a full console standard to...well pretty much anyone that speaks english honestly. Also if the PS4 is the standard, you are basically implying the X1 is not up to full console standards either. Nice try though!
Have you seen it and played it?? No this is on the go and if the rumors are true about an upgraded Switch with better specs its going to look even better Nvidia doesn't screw around with their graphics.
Who ever spent a full 60$ on the switch version of mk11 is a fool.
Were the people that spent $60 on Doom fools or Wolfenstein 2 nope those games look great on Switch and when comparing games against Switch and PS4 or Xbox Switch isn't to far behind graphically people like playing on the go. By the end of the year the Switch will outsell the lifetime sales of Xbox One S/X.
They look fine on the switch, but lets face it, people are used to high end graphics from other consoles & PC. So when the same game is compared along side those versions, the switch version is significantly behind in the graphics department. But at the same time, you can play it anywhere which provides a unique selling point.
Why? The game has all the contents that other consoles have to offer, so why can’t it be priced at $60?
The person doesn't know what they're talking about its on the go its not like its missing any of the features of other consoles like you said its not on par graphically but c'mon on the go.
I'm fine with the lower quality considering the Switch is portable, but let's not forget it's about $100 more than an XB1. If If it was the same price the lack of power could be offset with the portability factor, but i can't justify that price.
xbone was crucified for being $100 more than the PS4 with worse performance but this is Nintendo. they can do no wrong!
To be fair, the Xbone was crucified for much more than its price when it launched.
Only Nintendo can get away with “Good enough”.
looks good enough... That should be a comment for the back of the box.
Sounds like something only complacent people would say
Wow, people seem to say the same old shit about the Switch, over and over again...no new problems? First people claim it couldn't even run games like this or doom, wolf and other...when it runs it they say the games are not as good as the other...ok we get it, graphics downgrades ...it will be that way for every multi-platform game. We know and dont give a shit, as long as it plays great and have the same content...we can all tell you that being able to play anywhere trumps 1080p and 4k for a lot of us.
Its the classic "I hate it because daddy sony will notice my hate if I keep spewing toxicity"
how in the actual hell doea anybody play fighters with the switch dpad? I find it impossible!
Practice practice practice and you will get good I can do my moves both on joycon and pro controller which have a regular dpad
The pro controller is the only way I would ever find myself playing this on the switch.
The game looks absolutely amazing on everything else. I can't judge the look of this version until I see some actual gameplay. The trailer in the article was pre-rendered.
I'll make judgment when i see and play the switch version. Im sure it will look good based on the fact that its an enclosed based game, not too much to render.
It says they only got to play the handheld version. I doubt it looks like an xbone pro 4K but the docked version probably looks a lot better than handheld.
When every other version looks incredible, "looks good enough" just doesn't cut it, sorry. Of course the blind Nintendo fans will find a way to give it a pass. I love Nintendo as a developer, but I'm not blind to how shit some games look on their system. This is why in this generation like the last few, pretty much the only games I play on Switch are their first party exclusives (with Octopath Traveller being a rare exception).
So if it was say Playstation or Xbox and had those visuals, would it be "good enough"? Nintendo can never do any wrong can they? Its always justified excuse and should anyone disagree then they are fanboys of the other systems.
