It's always kinda disappointing to see the Switch version getting the short end of the stick. It's fuzzy as heck. It's a shame since the game isn't even all that pretty in the end. I suspect that all of those modern effects like dynamic lighting and Physically Based Rendering materials make it more demanding with little returns.
But of course, it's made with Unity. That's a very power hungry engine.

The recommended system requirements aren't high at all in the PC version!
Intel Core i3, 1.7ghz; GeForce GT 640; 4 GB RAM
Perhaps it's just a poor port.

Fuzzy as heck? The difference is minor and I AM SURE that of it wasn't for a side-by-side comparison, you wouldn't notice the difference.

You're just saying this because you're seeing the comparison. If one day played the Switch version, and in the next you played the Xbox version, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Thanks, but I definitely could tell the difference. If it would matter while playing is another matter indeed. The Switch port look serviceable and entirely playable, but it is disappointing that a game like this doesn't run better.

To me it looks like the difference is comparable to the gap between the Playstation 2 and Gamecube: Not enough of a difference to ruin the fun, but definitely noticeable.

Wasn't the Gamecube more powerful than the Playstation 2?

Yes, roughly 30% more powerful in most areas. I was comparing the Switch to the PS2's position in that scenario.

Is there any multiplatform examples that look better on Gamecube than on PS2?

Resident Evil 4 is the most notorious example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkKX-nU9fX4

I always find it interesting that the Switch - a small portable tablet - can compete graphically with the larger more powerful home consoles. Sure, there's a slight difference, but damn! The switch is some very capable hardware.

Gotta be honest, I never understood the need for these kinds of videos.

I mean, sure, there's a difference, but it's not like we're seeing "jaggies" or anything. The thing that's gonna be noticeable is if the game PLAYS differently on one or the other. Say that one has longer load times, or has a severe amount of input lag, then sign me up as concerned.

... of course, I realize that I'm obviously not the target audience for these comparison videos, and that I'm most certain there are entire communities out there dedicated to comparing graphical differences.
