Overwatch on Nintendo Switch is an oddly-timed port that simply doesn't translate well. I'll take my laggy Xbox match on a mediocre 32-inch television over a laggy match on a 6.2-inch screen any day. A questionable choice for a port with an even more questionable inclusion of gyroscopic controls. Turn them off and play with a Pro Controller, or ya know, on a PC or console.
It's hard to say whether or not Overwatch on Switch should be recommended. It is still without a doubt a good game. But Overwatch has a reputation now as a competitive game, and this rendition just doesn’t match that. This is Overwatch but muted. Overwatch with kid gloves, if you will. If players are okay having a less serious, less strategic game, then this is a fun way of passing hours. But you won’t be playing it for the fame and glory you might get from other platforms.
If you don’t care about portability and have Overwatch elsewhere then give the port a pass. Maybe once cross-save, cross-progression, and/or cross-play are added this port will be more compelling to existing fans, but for those that believe Overwatch isn’t Overwatch when the competitive side isn’t at its best then this port will only drive them mad. Overwatch is a great port for new fans and casual fans of the game, and no one else.
