The bottom line is that if you were on the fence with this game, or worried that it may not run well on Switch, you can rest easy - Playtonic's port is well worth your time. It's also a perfect way to finish off an incredible year on Switch for platform game fans.
I'm very impressed with this game overall... maybe the key was going in with low expectations after hearing people say it was garbage for months? It isn't garbage though. It's a good collectathon that feels right out of the 90's. Though not without its flaws, Playtonic still delivered on what was promised.
I think Xenoblade is the perfect way to cap the year and its what I'll continue to be doing instead of playing this lackluster collectathon.
What collect-a-thon hasn't been lackluster?
How can you ask this in the year of our Lord, Mario Odyssey?
It's a sad world we live in when Mario Odyssey is considered a collect-a-thon game simply due to the sheer amount of one collectable item.
This a new thing similar to any hard game becoming the "Dark Souls of X genre?"
It looks cool. Now there are a ton of stuff to play on the Switch right now and it is 40€. So it might have to wait.
Great. Just need it on a cartridge and I'm all in!
I tend to want physical releases, but with the switch, the digital option makes it easier to switch between games. I hate changing the cartridge. They are so small, I'm afraid of losing them.
