Hyper Light Drifter's a tough game and for that, it won't be for everyone. But if it already has your interest, your admiration, or your love, then it has – all hyperbole aside – found a perfect home on the Nintendo Switch.
Hyper Light Drifter is simply a must-play title. The Nintendo Switch version features a few exclusive features so in my mind, it’s the ‘definitive version’ at this point. While I initially had some frame-rate issues (some in single-player mode, while most were in the co-op mode), the 1.2.0 patch on the Nintendo Switch helped out tremendously. I didn’t recall any issues after the patch.
We don’t remember any game that is built on this level of pure abstraction, without the crucial foundation of explicit exposition beneath it. The traditional narrative structures are replaced with moods, but those contemplative quiet moments are intertwined with a constant breakneck, pitch-perfect action. Getting those two elements to not only coexist but thrive together is a needle that Hyper Light Drifter confidently threads.
