Hey everybody, with overwatch 2 coming up, I am wondering if overwatch 1 is worth it on switch. I am still looking for a ps5 so the switch is the only current gen console I own right now. I know I would love overwatch but I am just wondering if it is playable/fun on switch with the graphical downgrades. Thanks in advance!

If you can get it on literally any other console. i would do it. But if the switch is your only option, it plays like you think it would, weaker then other consoles graphical downgrades you know that kind of stuff.

It's obviously the worst version compared to every other console and PC but since your only option I guess you might as well try it.

If you don't mind the framerate being cut in half and lower resolution then go for it, as far as I know those are the only compromises, the version is still worth considering since crossplay is supported on the switch version.

But like for most switch ports theres usually a compromise made..

@Ravio18 Hey! Just so you know I've moved this into the Nintendo Switch section for the forums, as it was previously in suggestions & feedback for the site

Poyo!

From what I can tell, Overwatch 2 will include most of the content from the first game and will be free to play, so it depends if you can wait long enough for that to be released.

It's all right. I don't like playing shooters at all on console, but the gyro aiming helps a bit.

Love how we get NinteDoomed fandom bashing the Switch again and yet it outstrips sales of any consoles and PC so far. Funny don't you think it must be butte hurt when a imaginary under power consoles can beat a power console or system in pure gaming fun.

The Switch version of Overwatch is top notch.

It's super crisp, extremely stable and, it's the only version with gyro aiming (and the only hybrid version).

Frankly, I wouldn't play it anywhere else.

Alternative take. The game is a fast paced competitive shooter and as such is horribly suited to the Switch. Being super objective on this, it's the sort of game where you want high framerates and precise controls. It's therefore not a great fit for consoles generally because of dual-analogue, although gyro-aiming does close the gap somewhat. But it's also a horrible fit for the Switch because you're playing at a lower framerate. And generally, in terms of how Blizzard patches the game? PC is what gets most of the attention. So yes, I think it's very fair to say the Switch is the worst place to play Overwatch

With that all said, as someone who's probably put over 1000 hours into Overwatch on PC and a good couple of hours into it on Switch when there was a demo period for it? It's not a BAD game on Switch. It's serviceable and if you're into this type of game you'll probably get your money's worth. Although being an online focused game with a sequel coming out soon-ish? I do wonder what the servers are like now..... I haven't played it in probably 3 years....

If I was in your shoes? I probably wouldn't be running to give Blizzard my money

Pointing out port compromises makes people "Nintendoom" and bashing the switch?
The OP simply asked if the switch port is worth it or not so naturally people will point out the flaws in compare and contrast it with the other versions. Saying the resolution and framerate is worse than other versions isn't bashing the switch, its pointing out a basic fact that you can't handle hearing for some reason.

It's also hilarious how you brought up sales out of nowhere despite no one saying anything related to them. You just used that as a defense mechanism for something that wasn't even relevant to the discussion that wasn't even remotely negative by the way.
So I guess the only one "butte hurt" in this thread is you.

@SwitchForce Sorry if the switch version is weaker then literally every other version. It’s just a suggestion, get it on whatever version you want, it isn’t going to kill you, and the switch port even isn’t bad, just compared.

Also I'm fairly sure that that the "outstrips sales" comment is WELL off the mark for this title. Blizzard doesn't release per-platform numbers as far as I can tell but from active player counts Overwatch did move over 50mill units. And I think we can say with some confidence Overwatch did not move over 1 million units on Switch. Infact it hit 35mill players 2 years before it even released on Switch

Given the nature of the game and also the fact that pretty much every play clip posted on youtube for it is the PC version I would suspect the vast majority of sales were on PC

@JaxonH Seeing someone who legitimately thinks it’s a good version makes me feel a lot better. Thanks for replying!

Sorry if this sounds rude because I don’t want it to come off that way. I’m legit asking, did you come here asking people if it’s worth it looking for a specific answer? Because this sounds like you did.

Again. Not trying to be rude whatsoever.

Most of these kinds of threads are exactly that. People don't go onto the internet looking for advice, they're looking for affirmation

@skywake I’m starting to think so. No one was even hating on the port, everyone was just pointing out facts about the port. If I made a thread like this, I sure wouldn’t want people to sugar coat what they think about it.

@Snatcher Not rude at all. I came here seeing if people enjoyed it, If everybody said it was a terrible port, I would not buy it

@Ravio18 Alright. Because I just wanted to be sure.
