You are BJ Blazkowicz, aka “Terror-Billy,” member of the Resistance, scourge of the Nazi empire, and humanity’s last hope for liberty.

I'm not going to sully this review by comparing it to the other console ports (which is an apples to oranges comparison). I have a Switch Lite, so I also don't have to be concerned about whatever it looks like on a 1080p or greater display. I'm rating it a 7.5 because Wolfenstein II obviously cannot hold up against to the masterful Switch port of Doom Eternal, but taken as it is, it demonstrates the Switch's surprising ability to do FPS well and Panic Button's continued demonstrated ability to crank out quality ports. I'm impressed at what graphical and audio fidelity they were able to eke out despite the Switch hardware limitations. It does a great job compared to the glitchy [though loveable] mess of the Crysis Remastered Trilogy.

Gameplay wise, nothing has suffered and we still have the excellent gunplay we all know and love. My only complaint thus far is that the game will freeze and crash sometimes when reading collectibles.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on the Nintendo Switch is the worst version of a great shooter. With so much work needing to be done to get to an “acceptable” level of visual fidelity for a modern game, it’s no wonder that third parties aren’t rushing to put their games on the console.

Despite its shortcomings, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a great playthrough. Specifically, I think it caters to a group of gamers that, until last year, were really missing out on the mobile platform. It demonstrates the potential of the Nintendo Switch as a serious FPS console while still offering the mobility and freedom that Nintendo strives to obtain.

On the one hand, it’s really cool that Panic Button was able to port Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus to Nintendo Switch. The studio did an admirable job working within the limitations of the hardware and making the best compromise between gameplay and visuals that it could. On the other hand, the only thing the Switch version has going for it is that it’s portable. In every other regard, Wolfenstein 2 is better on other platforms.
