I genuinely feel overall that Beamdog and Skybound did their best with it, but realized at some point that there was only so much they could do to make it work. In the end, anyone willing to struggle through a game where doing almost anything is a chore will be rewarded with one of the deepest role-playing experiences possible. For everyone else, just pick up the PC version for cheap. It’s worth it and will run on anything nowadays.
Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition brings a classic game to a more modern look while retaining everything which made the original a classic in the first place. It's worth playing for anyone who hasn't ever played it and a fun trip through memory lane for those of us who have loved it. Unfortunately, the Switch version suffers from not having the touchscreen-enabled for navigating menus and in-game.
While consoles may not be the best place to revisit the streets of Neverwinter, whether alone or in a party with a friend, the title still feels fun to play. It has suffered graphically through the years, certainly looking dated despite the refurbishments made, but the story and adventure at the heart of Neverwinter Nights are truly worth experiencing. As a friend once said in reference to a book being battered over the years, that means it was well-loved.
