Nintendo Switch review

 

The Nintendo Switch is a homerun for Nintendo, and delivers on its innovative premise.

Hybrid home/portable console ; Sharp display ; Unique multi-scheme controller ; Intuitive design ; Great Nintendo games

Poor battery life/storage ; Some controller options don’t feel good during long gameplay sessions ; Third-party developer support is thin

The Switch manages to blend Nintendo’s penchant for weird, gimmicky hardware with the high quality design we’ve come to expect of consoles in the modern era. From a hardware perspective, it is the best console from the company in generations — possibly...

Nintendo Switch

 

The Nintendo Switch succeeds as both a home game system and a gaming handheld, offering a new flexibility in how you play.

Attractive, innovative design. Solid build quality. Joy-Cons feel comfortable to use in multiple configurations.

Attractive, innovative design. Solid build quality. Joy-Cons feel comfortable to use in multiple configurations. ; Can't copy or transfer save files. Short battery life. Flimsy kickstand.

We'll have to see how the Switch library continues to develop, and just how much power developers can wrangle out of the hardware. But based purely on its own design, flexibility, ease of use, and the handful of excellent games we've seen so far on the...

Nintendo Switch review: Excellent hardware with one roadblock

 

I have something of a love/hate relationship with Nintendo consoles, especially in recent years. While I grew up with consoles like the Super NES, Nintendo 64, and Gamecube, in the time since then my preference has shifted to Nintendo's handhelds like...

So, where does all of this leave us? I’m a bit torn. I’m a big fan of the Switch hardware itself. As I said in an opinion post I wrote about a week ago , I think this is the coolest thing Nintendo could have done if it’s determined to avoid playing the...

Nintendo Switch Review

 

The newly released Nintendo Switch is the latest video game console from Nintendo since it released the Wii U back in 2012. It's a step forward for the gaming industry – the entire console is simply a 6.2-inch tablet. Small controllers, called...

Overall, the Switch is a console that brings Nintendo back to its roots, with intuitive gameplay that is great for hours-long solo gaming sessions, competitive multiplayer battles and laughter-filled family fun. It offers one of the most versatile...

Nintendo Switch Review

 

It's been about a week since Nintendo's hybrid handheld/home console, the Switch, shipped out. One of many units came to my doorstep, and since then, I've been playing it as much as this job allows me to (so, more than I should, but let's keep that...

Nintendo Switch Review Kirk Hamilton

 

The Nintendo Switch is a fascinating new game console built around a novel and well-executed central idea. It also has plenty of problems that will doubtless be improved upon in a future version. Nintendo is yet again trying something new, and here we...

Nintendo Switch hands-on: is this Nintendo's big return?

 

As you may have heard, Nintendo just unveiled its new console, the Nintendo Switch. The Switch is a hybrid console, that is to say, it is a portable console but also a conventional console that sits in your living room. So, it's a mix between the 3Ds,...

Clearly, Nintendo knows how to make fun consoles for the whole family. The Japanese firm has been able to learn from some of their past mistakes to make a product that is flawlessly functional, like a portable Wii U crossed with a Wii.

Nintendo Switch review

 

The ultimate console/handheld compromise

Unique hybrid design ; HD Rumble ; Two controllers included ; Bright, crisp, colorful screen

Joy-Cons charge only on console without accessory ; Split D-pad ; Oddly placed right analogue stick ; Limited online service at launch

One-part handheld and one-part console, Nintendo's latest piece of hardware wants to be the only device you need for gaming. In many ways it's a big success, offering an exceptional level of handheld graphical quality, before seamlessly transitioning...

Nintendo Switch review: Nintendo verstaile games console up the ante

 

Nintendo's Switch console proves that innovation is the key to gaming success, and there are so many fantastic games to play

That’s a shame, because by golly if this isn’t one of the best games consoles of this generation, if ever. That console to handheld transition is superb, and the Joy-Con controllers really steal the show. Hardware-wise, it’s near-perfect, but we need...
