    As a landmark title that other games have trouble matching even now, The Witcher 3 flourishes on the Nintendo Switch. With an immense amount of absolutely engaging content, a meaningful narrative, and a meticulously designed world to explore, there’s no doubt about the quality of the game.

    The Witcher 3 on the Switch is a marvel in more ways than one, and if you want a game that you can sink dozens upon dozens of hours into without ever feeling like you’re doing the same things over and over again, then look no further because it’s right here.

    The Witcher 3: Complete Edition does succeed in bringing almost all of the magic present within the game to a platform that didn't seem feasible, and as a result offers an option to many players who might have found the game too daunting otherwise.

    This version is just pure witchcraft. It is incredible how such a big game fits in a tiny console. It does have its visual shortcomings, and we wouldn’t recommend it if you’re planning on playing it on a big TV, but it feels like a miracle on handheld mode.

    The mature content and somber approach of The Witcher III: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition may put off some gamers, but it’s a can’t-miss game for those seeking an RPG with more bite and consequence (not to mention playable characters above the age of 15) than we normally get on Nintendo systems.

    Saber Interactive has set a new standard for Switch conversions - now other developers can no longer blame the hardware. It is not a perfect depiction of the earlier versions technically, but that was never really the point. For those who intend to play on the TV, then console or PC versions are preferred. But if you want to carry with you one of the biggest adventures of recent years, there is no doubt. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Switch contains everything we loved about Geralt's latest adventure and is the ultimate proof that the game has unbelievably more substance than just a detailed world.

    Should you play The Witcher 3? Absolutely. It’s one of a handful of games from the past decade that you simply can’t miss. Should you play The Witcher 3 on the Switch? Honestly, probably not.

No me voy a extender en mencionar todas las bondades que tiene,Es una auténtica maravilla poder disfrutar de este juegazo en Nintendo Switch. No me voy a extender en mencionar todas las bondades que tiene, pues esto lo podréis encontrar en cualquier otro análisis de Xbox, Pc o Ps4; me ceñiré al apartado gráfico en Switch. Con la última actualización, que permite acceder a la configuración visual, el juego se ve increíble. Si bien en la TV es menos disfrutable, en modo portátil es una verdadera experiencia visual, se reducen enormemente las diferencias con máquinas de mayor potencia, y, el poder disfrutar de esta aventura en cualquier sitio y donde tu quieras, no tiene precio. Considero que este port, con la nueva configuración gráfica, vale cada céntimo que pagues Expand

    I start with 2 warnings!

    1. DO NOT buy it if you have other console and you do not intend to play it in portable mode!
    2. If you intend to play it in portable mode then take charger or huge powerbank with you.


    So now short review...
    High score because of portability and huge surprise for the fact that this game appeared on Switch.

    Switch is a compromise and because of that I did not expect great graphics (in comparison to PS4, XO, PC). I expected smooth and pleasant gameplay and CD Project Red delivered!

    + smoothness
    + portability
    + port of one of the best RPGs of all time

    - battery drainer
    - poor graphics (though still within the expectations)
    - crazy expensive for such old game

    I gave 10/10 because I think the game deserves it and I love it, but just to be fair to you all I must say one more time:
    If you have other console and you don't intend to play it in portable mode - DO NOT buy it. Buy any other version! You will spare lots of money and the please of playing on on big screen will be MUCH better (mostly because of the graphics).

    A stupendous port that has no right being as good as it is. While the visual and auditory downgrades are obvious, the technical achievementA stupendous port that has no right being as good as it is. While the visual and auditory downgrades are obvious, the technical achievement of getting such an immensely large game to run as well as it does on what is essentially a glorified tablet cannot be understated. The entire game remains intact in the Switch release, which the developers even managed to fit onto a 32GB cartridge. The ability to transfer save files to and from PC is a masterstroke, and makes for a far more compelling experience. I have the freedom to play the game portably on the Switch wherever I want, alongside the option to (rather seamlessly) transfer my save to PC and continue exactly where I left off with 4K visuals and a higher frame-rate when playing at home. It's a truly wonderful combination that I hope more developers take advantage of. Expand

Tiene un mundo abierto increíblemente grande, y lo mejor de esta versión es que puedes jugar en ese magnifico mundo siempre que quieras! La historia hasta donde he jugado es bastante buena e interesante. Gráficamente el juego no está mal, recuerden que es una consola portátil.
    El sonido se ha mantenido en la misma, la banda sonora (excelente) y la calidad del audio no han sido afectadas.
    El rendimiento es muy estable, me ha sorprendido lo bien que suele mantener los 30FPS, claro que en algunas zonas con más movimiento hay algunos bajones, nada que afecte la jugabilidad.
