Doom for Nintendo Switch Review ‘Roundup

Doom for Nintendo Switch was just released a few days ago. Since then those that were given the game, bought it after it came out, or got it preordered have started to give their reviews on the game. Below are a few of the reviews you can find on Doom for Nintendo Switch.

Doom for Nintendo Switch – Game Spot 7/10

“If you can stand to look at a lesser version of Doom’s once captivating world, you’ll find that the game plays well enough on Switch so long as you’ve got a TV in front of you and a Pro Controller in hand. There’s nothing else like it on a portable system, but be prepared to face a handful of compromises, especially if you’re used to playing on other platforms. It’s an impressive port that begs you to consider gameplay over graphics, and it succeeds more often than not.” – Peter Brown

Doom for Nintendo Switch – IGN 8.5/10

“Doom for Nintendo Switch is a straightforward port that runs well and looks pretty good. Which ultimately, is everything it needed to be. Even though it’s a little fuzzy, smashing through a legion of demons with a fun set of weapons and upgrades feels great, and especially when you throw in arcade mode and the much-improved multiplayer arena battles, this is the best mature-themed shooter you can currently get on the Switch.” – Filip Muigin

Doom for Nintendo Switch – Destructoid 8/10

“Bethesda did it — they ported Doom to a Nintendo console. It might not be the prettiest version, but it works, and it was enough to get me to play it all over again. Nintendo learned a lot from its failure on the Wii U, and its ability to welcome in more mature games on the system is something it hasn’t done in quite a while. It’s a message for all the prospective first and third parties alike — keep doing it.” – Chris Carter

Doom for Nintendo Switch – Hardcore Gamer 4/5

“It’s clear, beyond the obvious limitation with resolution and frame-rate, that Doom for Switch has had to make some restrictions. Even so, for those who haven’t yet experienced one of last year’s finest, most surprising releases, Doom even now represents one of the genre’s finest moments for some time. Clearly those who already own the game on another platform will have to think long and hard over the novel value of having a game of this caliber on the go. And while the visual blemishes and rough edges do detract on occasion and are clear to spot, playing Doom on the Nintendo Switch still conjures that same jubilant energy that id Software’s behemoth has long been praised for. Tainted in its visuals it might be, the heart, soul and demon-crushing ferocity of its gameplay, in the end, shines through regardless.” – Jordan Helm

Doom for Nintendo Switch – Nintendo Life 8.8/10

“Doom is an incredible game, flaws and all. Audio issues and frame rate drops were annoying at times, but weren’t dramatic enough to deter us from a beautiful, pulse-raising good time – and we imagine that future updates will at least partly solve these problems. Doom is one of the best first-person shooters we’ve ever played, and is certainly the best in its class on Switch. There’s a certain magical quality about having a game this good on the go. Its brilliant campaign is reason enough to pick it up, but Doom’s multiplayer will keep you coming back for more for months to come. While it’s perhaps not as polished as it is on other formats, having Doom in portable form is a revelation, and developer Panic Button deserves high praise for porting over id Software’s classic title so brilliantly.” – Steve Bowling
