    For players more interested in narrative than challenge, look no further. With powerful storytelling, strong performances from the central cast and disturbingly relevant themes, The New Colossus is a high water mark for AAA stories. As it fires on all cylinders to deliver bombast and blood with its right hand, be warned — the most devastating hits come from its subtle left hook.

    This version of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus shows us that a Nintendo Switch can be powerful, adult and capable of anything possible.

    As it goes for a Switch game as a whole, this is certainly one of the better releases on the system from a third party company. While you get just the vanilla version of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the fact that you get it on the Nintendo Switch in amazing form is something to behold. The game looks solid, the intensity of the original release is still intact, and the gameplay doesn’t drop off much when playing it portable. It’s a must-have for Nintendo Switch owners dying for a first-person shooter.

    Panic Button's work is commendable. On Nintendo Switch, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus offers the same quality of the original adventure, without altering the great personality of MachineGame's work. We can therefore unleash Terror Billy's fury against the Nazi army, embracing dozens of guns and experimenting original mechanics, at any time and in any place. The price to pay will be slightly limited graphics, but that does not hinder the dynamism that characterizes the action-packed gunplay.

    There are better-looking versions of this wonderful shooter, but Wolfenstein II on the Switch is a technical marvel in its own right.

    This port is, simply put, just ok. The graphical quality has been downgraded significantly in order to make the core of the experience, which is the gunplay, still smooth and enjoyable even in handheld mode. Definitely, Switch is not the best place to play Wolfenstein II but, at least, the gameplay is good enough to make killing nazis on the way a total joy.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus wants the Nazi-killing theme of the blood-obsessed Wolfenstein series to assert its modern-day relevance in a world where the word “resistance” has become a rallying cry.

    Another great job by Panic Button. This is not the best looking version of the game, but that is to be expected and who cares. The SwitchAnother great job by Panic Button. This is not the best looking version of the game, but that is to be expected and who cares. The Switch version gives you the ability to blast Nazis anywhere! If you enjoyed DOOM, you will enjoy Wolf 2. Another visually demanding game has been squeezed into the tiny Switch, it controls well and provides more play options than any other version available. (8/10, but rating 10/10 just to counter the idiots that give the game a zero) Expand

It's an excellent port that keeps the experience intact. Panic Button did an amazing job as usual, maximizing the capacity of the Switch for a perfect handheld experience. If you want crisper graphics, play the other versions, but on the switch screen the game is just perfect! Expand

The graphics is acceptable runs the mostly solid at 30fps at 720p in docked mode (some times drop to 28/27fps). Overall, IS a realy playable game. The only "problem" is in portable mode, even in a small screen the graphics turns realy realy blury. Looks like something around 320p. Expand

I like Wolfenstein and DOOM titles, classical old-school FPS what a real man cannot ask for more. The storyline is attractive. HD rumble of NS is good too.
    Cons: The font size of subtitle is too small, especially in hand-held mode. Maybe because of the hardware performance, the resolution ratio is a little bit low, making it vague when playing.
    In all, 8/10, recommended.
