    There aren’t really any other games like this on the Switch, so as long as you’re okay with — or at least willing to tolerate — visuals that pale in comparison to how they look elsewhere, then you’re in for one of the last gen’s best zombie games.

    Even though the graphics and performance took a hit, Techland manages to maintain the speed and excitement of Dying Light on the Nintendo Switch.

    Fortunately, Dying Light Platinum Edition for Nintendo Switch is a successful porting for Nintendo's hybrid. Despite the obvious and inevitable need to downgrade, the portable version remains enjoyable with a huge amount of content and a sufficiently solid frame rate.

    Dying Light: Platinum Edition looks surprisingly good on Switch, and even more impressive is that load times are kept short and the framerate stable. So, with a journey to Harran being as captivating today as it was in 2015, there’s no reason why those who love exploring open worlds filled with zombies wouldn’t want to pick this up. Add in a whole smorgasbord of additional content, features and modes, and you have a package that’s a highlight in the Switch’s extensive catalogue.

    Dying Light is six years old, but it hasn't lost its edge. A fantastic parkour system, extensive combat customization, and a unique take on the zombie-filled post-apocalyptic world mean Techland's horror game still holds its own after so long. Sure, the resolution could be better on Nintendo Switch, and it's still the same iffy story, but having Dying Light portable and with all the DLC more than makes up for that.

    Dying Light has found a new home and is worth returning to for both veteran fans and those touching down on Harran for the first time. Playing again made me excited for the sequel’s release and made me appreciate this title even more. This and more is what a port should do, so good luck and good night.

    Dying Light: Platinum Edition is another impressive Switch port, but the game itself is just OK. Its design threw everything at the wall, often to its detriment. While it has some pretty high highs, they lie almost exclusively in the movement. If you do want to chase those highs you’re better off on other platforms until another patch or two comes along.

    It's amazing what the Switch can run if some talented people put their hands on a port. From a technical standpoint, Dying Light is top notchIt's amazing what the Switch can run if some talented people put their hands on a port. From a technical standpoint, Dying Light is top notch for a Switch port. The frame rate, the graphics, the gameplay... everything is absolutely phenomenal. The game itself is scary enough to get you on the edge of your seat, especially at night time and the pure number of zombies can bring into some tense situations if you're not careful enough. All DLCs are included which is also very nice, you get value for money. Expand
