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

 

After getting some games to play the Nintendo Switch, I've finally been able to start properly testing the console. At a review event I spent the bulk of the day playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and began to fall in love with the Switch.

As a home console, it has some problems, but as a portable, I can’t put the Nintendo Switch down.

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

 

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.
