    Apex Legends on the Nintendo Switch is a full fledge free to play, portable (kind of) cousin to the big consoles and PC version with cross-play but no cross-progression. I enjoy playing it and if you do not mind some blurry graphics and frame drops every so often then give this game a try and join up with some friends.

    This Switch release puts in the work and squeezes the game onto Nintendo's hardware, but the limitations of the platform make it a tough sell for those without access to other consoles or a beefy PC. It's a wonderful novelty to load up a recent AAA title on such a compact device, but that fades after a couple of hours. Still, for the Nintendo faithful and anyone who hasn't yet given Apex Legends a try, EA's latest Switch release is a worthy free-to-play option that should provide hours of white-knuckle action.

    If the heart of Apex Legends is present, this shooter is not in top form. It was obvious that concessions had to be made for Respawn's title to find its way on Switch. Unfortunately these cuts tarnish the gameplay to the point of regularly putting players at a disadvantage by hiding their opponents behind weak resolution and marked aliasing. Dying because you can't see your opponent in a hard-to-identify cluster of pixels is frustrating, and it happens a bit too much in this version of Apex. Still, if this is your only way to reach your friends playing on other media, this version may help you out. It is not, however, representative of what Respawn's Battle Royale can really be.

    I did have moments of fun playing Apex Legends on Switch. Panic Button has managed to take a game that I love and make it work just well enough on Nintendo's hybrid console. I don't want to keep playing it on Switch with its many technical concessions (nor do I want new players to be introduced to Apex Legends this way), but this port is--in its current state--a decent last resort. If your only way to play Apex Legends is on Switch, then you now have that option. Just know that you're signing up for something less than ideal.

    Apex Legends has finally made its way to Nintendo Switch, but the end result makes us wonder if it was better off staying in the dropship.

    The pacing of the game is so favourable for those just starting out, and offers a great place to learn the mechanics of the game at a much slower pace than the console versions. Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch is definitely worth a download, just go in with an open mind.

    The launch version of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch is hardly convincing. Panic Button showed it was up to the task of porting this highly demanding game on the console, but at the cost of losing a major part of what makes the game both enjoyable and competitive. Updates will likely improve the game over time, hopefully.

    Apex is definitely a game changer in battle royal games - there are way too many things done so well. Fast, adrenaline, well looking gameApex is definitely a game changer in battle royal games - there are way too many things done so well. Fast, adrenaline, well looking game running so smoothly, with such a satisfying feel of shooting, killing opponents and getting a wins. Should I even mention the perfect in-game communication system? You can also buy every character without spending a single real coin.
    This is the best combination of Fortnite and Overwatch.
    Sadly, besides duos/trios and rankes, there are no other modes. Which feel really poor. Because of this, it would be 8/10 on any other platform - on the Switch tho, its even worse because of not so well port... especially for a game like this, the resolution is extremely important.

The frame rate can get VERY choppy at times, the visuals are incredibly muddy, and to top it off, it's plagued by input lag. It's a real shame for an otherwise fantastic game. If Switch is your only way of playing Apex, you may find it acceptable, but you'd be far better off playing anywhere else. Without the performance, visual, or control problems, it would be a 9/10 or 10/10 for me. Definitely my favorite battle royale game. Expand

    Muddy resolution and choppy framerate hamper the experience way to much.
    Also the hud is bad and loot management is garbage.
