This isn't just an action masterclass from PlatinumGames - it's a technical one too.
We are at 2019 and saying that for a 300 dlls gaming "CONSOLE" and for a game looking like that? ,daaammnn that's just hilarious, that's Nintendo and his so called innovation alright, so sad but yet really funny lol.
You sound like a proud owner of a Xbox one X
I already have my copy of Astral Chain. It’s akin to DMC. DMC5 is better than Astral Chain, so this confirms that metacritic inflates Nintendo games. You have deduct 6 points off switch games to make it even to standard current gen games. Also graphically it’s just taking advantage of cellshading. Bravo.. Platinum games needs to develop games on the PlayStation, Xbox, or PC.
@mikeslemonade why bought Astral Chain when you don't even have a Switch. Or is just you trying to make excuse so you could talk crap without actually playing it? Because that is sad.
^ Add me on the switch SW-7872-6775-0007. I’ve had the Switch since launch day. Nah the game just doesn’t seem as good as Nier Automata and DMC5. Switch is holding it back.
This game would look well even on a PS4 or an Xbox One. And don’t forget that the Switch is portable as well. If you have a better looking game on any portable console than Astral Chain, then your point stands. Until then, your constant trolling on any Nintendo-related articles is starting become tiresome.
"This game would look well even on a PS4 or an Xbox One" , lol for a PS3 game or 360 sure why not hehe, but for a PS4 or even an xbone Platinum can go and do way higher levels of games. "If you have a better looking game on any portable console than Astral Chain, then your point stands" , if developers wanted to they could make it run looking way better on cheap arse mobile phone XD, I mean seriously a video just pop up of a smartwatch running Shemue lol, imagine what they could do on those octa core cpu with a Exynos 5433 mobiles for example ;), sorry dude I don't live under a rock and think of the Switch in an achievement, is just a damn device based from mobile gpu architecture, I mean it has a Tegra X1 in it lol.
Platinum, is one of the few turd party developers that takes the switch seriously. The animé cell shaded style is used to great effect. The game play is fast and relentless. If you own a switch, this game should be in everyone's collection.
I heard similar hollow statements like yours back in the 90s, "OmG ThoSe gRafiXS SucK!". Meanwhile, Nintendo is still relevant and killing it. If only the Switch can get "real" games like the Witcher to run on it........oh, wait!
Hahaha..anothe well said comment! The goal post will move everytime, that you can count on.
"Nintendo is still relevant and killing it" , sure in third place ;)
@masterfox - BuT i ThOuGhT tHe SwItCh WuZ nExT gEn?!?! Seriously, you guys went on to no end that the Switch wasn't even competing with the XB1 and PS4 and it was the Wii U. So this technically means that when the PS5/XB2 launch the Switch will be ahead of them by like 50-60 million units.
You should lay off of dry humping that piece of plastic under you're tv, the chafing causes fanboy aids
“if developers wanted to they could make it run looking way better on cheap arse mobile phone XD” Yes, no developers will make game for those “cheap arse” phone, but Nintendo do make game for their console. So my point still stands. “I mean seriously a video just pop up of a smartwatch running Shemue lol, imagine what they could do on those octa core cpu with a Exynos 5433 mobiles for example ;)” And how is Shenmue 1 in anyway compareable to Astral Chain? Also, Exynos couldn’t even beat the Tegra K1 in some tests per the link below, how could it fare against the new X1 chip in the Switch? You should stop trolling, fox. https://www.androidauthorit...
It's 2019 and people like you still troll, I don't get it. Oh and that comment below is true about the Switch being in third place, but you're a fool if you think Xbox won't be passed very soon by it (by a system that's not even two and half years old AND that has lower specs. Ouch.) It's sad how far Microsoft fell off since about 2012 or so to now.
Seems some comments are taking it as a "best looking game" rather than "best looking game on the Switch." There is a difference.
Comprehension is a skill trolls and fanboys lack. Blinded by brand loyalty is a real thing. It's a an article simply talking about a system that everyone by now, is aware of its graphical limitations. it's comparing games on that system, but of course other systems have to pop up..
absolutely. Nobody is saying this game is better looking than God of War or Horizon. Those games look utterly gorgeous and obviously the Switch isn't going to be able to pump out visuals to rival those games. That being said, games like this look fantastic on my 4K OLED and the colors pop extremely well. This art style is brilliant for the game design and setting. Relax Sony drones.. nobody is saying this is the best looking game. Head back under your bridges and put the pitchforks away.
I agree,this game including MA3 & Bayonetta 2&3 are the only games in the Switch exclusive library I find interesting.
I completely disagree.... "MIGHT"??? "Might be the best looking game on Switch"??? It is *absolutely* the best looking game on Switch! ;)
although not 60fps and not heavy action all the way through it certainly looks good from the art point of view
lol the salt. The Switch's library is becoming pretty epic.
How funny is it that Nintendo still has more quality exclusives than MS? The reason that I bring this up is because it is embarrassing. Every console should have enough great exclusives each year. Is MS ever going to fix this issue?
