    One of the best multiplayer experiences on the Switch – if not the best! [Issue #35 – September/October 2018, p. 24]

    They said it wasn't possible on Switch, but now it's here, Nintendo fans won't be able to escape the phenomenon for any longer. It nails the get a little better each time feel, and that's what makes it so addictive. Add in the Save the World mode and it's an equal match for the other systems.

    Fortnite Battle Royale delivers a perfect balance in gunplay, progression and sandbox elements. No wonder it may be 2018's gaming phenomenon. We even like the way microtransactions allow players to enter new challenges and earn cosmetics for the game, but don´t alter the core mechanics.

    Fortnite for Nintendo Switch delivers the same fun, compelling battle royale experience already available on the other platforms.

    Fortnite on Nintendo Switch is a well done port despite its graphical downgrades. It contains the same great Battle Royale gameplay the title is known for, and it's just as addictive and exciting as ever. Collecting materials, swapping out guns, and building forts never gets old, even though you are going to be dying a lot. If you have never played the game before, then this is the perfect time to give it a shot, especially since it's free to play.

    Epic has delivered the full fat Fortnite: Battle Royale experience on the ‘homeheld’. The omission of Save the World is disappointing, and you’re sure to notice the framerate difference if you’re coming from other consoles, but performance-wise, it’s steady and perfectly playable. There’s room for improvement – motion-assisted aiming should be top of the patch list – but ultimately, that just-one-more feeling survives the transition intact. Before you know it, you’ll be eyeing the clock at 3:56 am thinking ‘hmm, that’s not a round number’. The heart-pounding suspense of making it to the final two may not be healthy, but it sure is addictive.

    Fortnite is not a masterpiece, yet it is one of the most important games in the current videogame panorama. If you are wondering why this happened, you just have to hold the joycons and spend a few minutes in the company of ninety-nine other players, whether you are at home or at lunch at work. Warning: it could be addictive.

    Fortnite on a Handheld console is great. Ive been wanting this port for ages and its finally here! A few things that need to be fixed, but i'mFortnite on a Handheld console is great. Ive been wanting this port for ages and its finally here! A few things that need to be fixed, but i'm sure it will be fixed in updates in the future. Also if you are thinking of buying a Switch just for Fortnite, go ahead because its that good. Also it looks a lot better than Mobile and the controls are way better as well. Go download it now if you haven't already because it's a free game. 10/10 Great Port Expand

On Switch it lags at times making the game hard to play, but usually it’s fun and exciting! The gameplay is very cool. You can build quickly and fight players in the solo mode, duo mode, or squad mode. The game is very fun when playing with friends too. Winning a game feels like an accomplishment in any mode. The item shop is a cool way of getting outfits, but is expensive to get multiple skins usually. Also this version is portable so that’s a plus! I recommend it! Expand

    I'm sure this game is fine on PC, as I do NOT recommend the Switch Version. The aiming was design for a mouse, not a analog stick. However,I'm sure this game is fine on PC, as I do NOT recommend the Switch Version. The aiming was design for a mouse, not a analog stick. However, the game can be a mixed bag of enjoyment. matches either have you be killed immediately out of nowhere or have your wonder around for 10 minutes and than be killed out of nowhere. have the game is free, so at least I didn't waste money on this.
