Resident Evil 4's Switch Port is Incredibly Straightforward

DS: “Resident Evil 4 has been ported a whole bunch of times over the years. As of this writing, the game has now appeared on GameCube, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, Wii, PC, and even some different versions for iOS and Android. Basically, it has become an easy game for Capcom to bring to various modern platforms over the years due to how popular the title remains nearly 15-years after originally releasing.

At the end of the day, Resident Evil 4 for Switch is exactly what it sounds like: it’s just Resident Evil 4 on Switch. Depending on how big of a fan of RE4 you are and how badly you’re looking to experience it in handheld mode will likely determine whether or not this is a must-buy for you or not. But in my own estimation, considering how costly this edition of Resident Evil 4 is when it’s more often than not just a simple port from the PS4 and Xbox One, I’m hard-pressed to say it’s worth your money at the moment. While it’s cool to have one of my favorite games ever now playable in handheld form, that selling-point can only go so far.”

The Switch tax is a huge jarring sticking point for this port

Not sure why a 14 year old game can't hold 60fps on a console released in 2017

Switch seems to be closer in power to the Xbox 360 and PS3 than the PS4 and Xbox One. The hd version of Resi 4 that released on last gen consoles ran at 30fps with some framerate drops. When they announced this port, my only concern was that they would attempt to match the 60fps of the other modern versions. It runs a lot better than I expected it to, but the Steam version has an option to cap the framerate at 30fps which they absolutely should have carried over to the Switch.

Switch is well above 360/PS3. Capcom just doesn't care. They have shown that time and time again with the Switch.

it is much closer to the XB1 than the 360. Don't kid yourself.

I’d hate to see how Capcom handles the DMC1 port of DMC1 next

I was ready to buy it, just waiting for the confirmation that it would have controls like the Wii version. Since it doesn't, I won't buy it.
