Nintendo Switch Review

I have been using the Nintendo Switch for a couple of months now. It is a great hybrid system and it may prove to be my favorite video game system yet. It is hard to tell at the early stage of its life though. I like how easy it is to switch between the TV and handheld mode. I do wish you could connect directly to the TV without a dock. It would make it more convenient when traveling.

The launch lineup was a bit slim, but the library is quickly growing. My favorite game so far on the Nintendo Switch is a fighting game called arms. Arms pits ten unique characters against each other. Each character fights with extremely long expandable arms. The main reason to own the Nintendo Switch is to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the go. This game alone offers hours of gameplay. I purchased The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii U, but I feel like that was a mistake. I should have waited to get it for the Switch. I am still considering trading it in for the switch version. Another triple A first party game for the Nintendo Switch is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It is basically an enhanced version of Mario Kart 8. This is the definitive Mario Kart.

The system is comfortable to hold and the buttons on the Joy-con work well. The left and right joy-cons have a lot of tech built into them. They have a built in gyro-sensor, accelerometer and a motion tracking camera. They also have HD Rumble, which provides more realistic feedback. Nintendo also has a pro controller, however the asking price is a bit steep at the moment. It is currently listed as 64 dollars on Amazon. The pro controller is one of the best controllers that I have held to date.

Overall, the Nintendo Switch delivers on being the first true hybrid system. It is a joy to use and I am sure there will be improvements over time (battery life). I am looking forward to the future of the Nintendo Switch. They have some awesome titles coming to the system. This includes Splatoon 2, Mario Odyssey, Skyrim, NBA 2K18 and Rocket League. As long as Nintendo doesn’t remake too many titles the system will be a success. What do you think about the Nintendo Switch and the upcoming lineup?
