This is yet another Switch port that I feel like I am required to purchase. It runs silky smooth with maxed out settings on my PC and I play it for a few days at a time and have been slowly making my way through it for over a year, while also playing other games in-between. It’s so amazing that I don’t want to miss a thing and I’m absurdly thorough in my exploration. As a result, I cannot possibly start over with an inferior version. But the prospect of handheld Geralt is amazing. I’ll have to force myself to await a sale and grab it for 20 bucks, though I wish I could reward CDPR by buying it at full price again. For anyone who has not played this amazing game, buy it immediately at full price. Despite the lowered graphics, I believe the Switch will be the best way to play it. Like Breath of the Wild, the freedom to play anytime will make this massive undertaking of an experience much more accommodating to your schedule and lifestyle, and that will massively enhance the experience. I wish I wasn’t so deep in the PC version or that I could transfer my save, cause I’d love to have another Breath of the Wild-type experience on a system so ideal for those sorts of games. This game is like Breath of the Wild with the things that game was lacking(combat complexity, enemy variety, graphic sex, crafting, real sailing, graphic sex on top of stuffed unicorns, character development, child murder, and difficulty that increases rather than decreases) and cranks them up to eleven. The Switch is a fantastic way to keep yourself absorbed in this amazing world, when being required to chain yourself to the TV would ordinarily cause other responsibilities to make most adults lose interest after they get pulled away for the 100th time. Handheld mode allows you to sneak a few minutes of playtime in while also taking care of other things. Games like this are what make the Switch so perfect for busy adults. It lets us get wrapped up in a huge world like we did before we had so many responsibilities pulling us out of the experience. Simply a must-play.

The combat is just very simple most of the time pretty much dodge hit hit dodge rinse and repeat. There are rare encounters where you actually need potions and need to counter monsters with spells. But most of it can be done with dodge and hit. And unless you really delve into signs they are abit useless.

The complete game on a cartridge is absolutely amazing, these developers outdone themselves in optimizing this game for the switch. It looks great considering the hardware’s limitations; definitely exceeded my expectations.

I hope this sells a ton of copies on the Switch. It’s the best game I’ve ever played and I’m amazed it can run on the Switch. Buy it!

Agree with this review based on my PC version. Except that the game works well on my PC without any FPS drops. Some bugs though for me and other small anoying things like Geralts movement in combat sometimes as you said.
