Very satisfying to use. I’ve always been a handheld man, but have enjoyed the occasional console game (or handheld port thereof) for the sheer scope and detail. My main problem with console games, and the reason I can never seem to get up the will to play, is that I can’t take them with me. Life calls me elsewhere, and I inevitably leave them behind. My Nintendo handhelds, however, get lots of love and lots of use because they can come with wherever I go.
Needless to say, I love having a… whatever you want to call this combination. As expected, being a console, it sucks power from the battery (which is actually bigger than my drone’s, in capacity) faster than a pure handheld. As a console, its graphics are never going to e photorealistic in 4k, because it’s a handheld. Tradeoffs and compromises: you can hear about these in any Switch review that’s thorough enough to address them.
But I like this large handheld/small console because it delivers on the “switch” feature: I can play it on TV and when I need to go somewhere, I can simply lift it from the dock, put on the Joycons (more comfortable to use in any configuration than they look) and take it with me.
