The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition Switch review – pure witchcraft | Metro

The Switch is clearly not the game’s natural home and yet even with the graphical downgrade The Witcher 3’s innate quality shines through.

The story is too old to be commented.

It's an inferior port not just visually but many saying performance is shoddy YET it is getting 9/10s?

It's on Nintendo so you know they get a pass for everything

The Witcher 3 in its entirety is running on a small tablet. That alone is a miracle....hence the high scores. Do you need more explanation?

Myst-Vearn651d ago

@LOGICWINS, you make zero sense. You should score a game based on how good it is, how well it runs, not "oh man it's miracle it even RUNS on this weaker console!" .

I've said many times that the worst games on xbox and ps4 would be rated great on the switch. I'm not sure why people cant be truthful across the board about games instead of constantly making excuses so people know what to expect. I've been hearing that the witcher 3 looks amazing on switch but when I actually see it running it looks rubbish and unacceptable for a game that's full price. I dont know why I dont hear excuses about performance drops, bad graphics and pop ins for games on xbox one and ps4. To each their own

You know this game ran like shit on base Xbox and PS4 as well right?

Livingthedream651d ago

It looks good for a switch game

"It’s worth bearing in mind that this is a game that didn’t always run perfectly even on a base model PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so the fact that it offers such a consistent experience on the Switch is nothing short of, well… witchcraft. The game can look genuinely impressive in portable mode, with the smaller screen flattering the visuals and seeming like a perfectly acceptable compromise for the downgrade in graphics."

"In Short: The Switch is clearly not the game’s natural home and yet even with the graphical downgrade The Witcher 3’s innate quality shines through."

You could try to read, at least.

Giant Bomb quick look said the frame rate was solid. Graphically I always felt this looked bad. Not a fan of the series but I was curious to see in the video.

It looks washed out on the switch even though I play only in portable mode and to play this for the first time then I will rather get it on pc.

Didn't they do that already? Lol
