It's too bad this game was so poorly optimized for the Switch. The framerate is trash in handheld mode, making it no fun to play. It might perform better on the dock, but if I have to play it on the TV, I might as well just get the PS4 version. And since I'm not looking for any more games that keep me tethered to a TV, I'll be passing on this.

@Ralizah
A game doesn't need to necessarily be optimized to be enjoyable. I've been having a blast with it and have no trouble at all playing it. That being said though the other versions may run better and who's to say a patch could come along and fix some performance issues. The switch version may not be the best but it's certainly one of my favorites on the platform so far.

@GameOtaku I'm not a huge stickler about framerate (the drops in unpatched BotW didn't really bother me, for example), but Nights of Azure 2 felt sub-20fps when I entered that battle sequence.

I mean, if that doesn't bother you, then great! I don't think I could enjoy it, however.

I've been enjoying NoA2, framedrops and all; pity it's a short game. My only real complaint is 'B' being "Confirm" and 'A' being "Cancel." Is there any way to change that? 'Cause it's been driving me up the wall.

I noticed the frame rate issues but, it wasn't enough to cause more than an aggravation for me. I heard it has bad performance on both platforms. Haven't really tried much of the handheld mode though, since I was home when I played it.

From the little I've played so far, the framerate is so-so, but not unplayable. I'm still enjoying it.
It's definitely no drakengaard 3!

I've made it to chapter 5. I'm really impressed so far the story is very interesting.

Got this game yesterday. Played this game today but after an hour it didn't click with me. My copy is already on ebay. Looks like I wasted a good chunk of money.

Only an hour? Doesn't sound like you gave it to much of a chance.

That's long enough to figure it's a cliched, mediocre title with senseless battles, a bad frame rate, uninspired plot and average music.

I've too many great games to playthrough these days. I don't even know why I thought this would be worth my time in the first place.

I thought Resident Evil 4 was the worst game I ever played after only 5 minutes, but I stuck around with it and it came to be one of my favorite games. You spent one hour in an action rpg, in most games like that it only picks up after the first hour. The frame rate drops were not that bad, sure they exist but not to the point it's unplayable.

Some new free DLC came out for the Western version. You have to go to the eShop and download it, but it's free.

There's also special DLC until the end of November that you can only get for free if you own the game.

I think Minecraft also has time-limited DLC as well, but you don't need the game to download it.

Completed the game on normal and got the "bad" ending. Working through it again on new game plus to get the better endings and I am loving every bit of it!

@GameOtaku

I got the "Bad" ending too and saw the other one on Youtube. Ironically, I actually like the "Bad" ending more than the "Good" one.

The paid side story dlc gives you the pink requiem costume which boosts all stats as well as a new area for you to conquer which adds a little more background to the Moon Queen.

Thinking about making this my next purchase, but one thing that has me worried is that apparently you only have so much time to beat the game before getting a genuine "Game Over"?

The Nintendo Life review seemed to indicate that they managed to complete most things with plenty of time to spare, but I'd like a few more opinions from people who've played it.

BTW, I'm not too worried about the framerate. For example I had no issues with the framerate in the DQHI&II demo, and although not a framerate issue, I've never been put off by the resolution of XC2 in handheld mode.

The game over timer is the moon but you also have a time limit that you can stay out (think hunting time in monster hunter where the hunt fails and you are returned to town).When you start off the game you can attempt to complete the story objective and if you time out you are returned to base and you sleep which causes the moon to wane slightly. You can increase the time spent in the hunt by offering blue blood in the lab and by defeating bosses the moon fills up toward full so you don't really have to worry about timing out. Just be sure you make good progress early on in the stages as possible.
