After successfully porting two of its biggest titles to the Nintendo Switch, Bethesda goes for third with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The game has been out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC for almost a year and Nintendo Switch players have been waiting patiently for their own version of the highly acclaimed game. With that out of the way, let's do a quick overview on what some of the gaming industry's critics have to say about their experience while playing the game.
"As long as you're able to play the entire game in docked mode, The New Colossus is the same fantastic game it is on other platforms. It runs well and, despite some minor visual compromises, it still looks pretty good. Handheld mode is unfortunately far less optimized, and the Joy-Cons simply don't feel as good to use as the Pro Controller" - Gamespot 8/10
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus currently has a Metascore of 80/100 made up of 10 positive and 1 mixed feedback. Bethesda and Panic Button are getting accolades for preserving the game's core gameplay mechanics. Though this may be the case, the Switch version is not without its faults, especially in the graphics department. Preserving the game's core mechanics requires sacrifice in terms of resolution and framerate which based on the critics are just "minor" setbacks.
"It’s not the prettiest or smoothest way to experience Wolfenstein 2, but it gets the job done." IGN 8.5/10
Just like Bethesda's other Switch ports Doom and Skyrim, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus may not be the best version of the game in terms of graphical presentation but it's a complete game nonetheless. Portability is not a plus for this port as this version is best played in docked mode, unlike the previous Bethesda ports.
