While Nintendo traditionally designs its flagship consoles just for at-home play, the Switch is meant to be portable as well. A tablet smaller than an iPad mini houses the system’s core technology, allowing you to take the Switch on the go or slide it into its accompanying dock for TV gaming.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle faced no shortage of skepticism before its launch. (Mario has a gun? And he’s hanging out with the Rabbids?) But UBisoft Milan’s robust strategy game proved itself with some truly challenging levels and accessible but complex turn-based gameplay, while also finding a way of marrying the Rabbids and Mushroom Kingdom’s senses of humor into one, charming experience. — Jonathon Dornbush
Console is great, durable and extremely easy to set up. Feels like a Nintendo product and the quality expectations of it. Only downside is no Netflix or other third party app support yet. If you are not into Zelda at the moment I would suggest waiting a little for more content to be released.
The Nintendo Switch has had an absolutely incredible first eight months and has amassed an impressive library of AAA first party games and indie darlings. As year one is winding down, we thought now would be a perfect time to create our first (of many) Top 25 lists for Nintendo’s hybrid console.
Super Mario Odyssey is by far the best Nintendo Switch game for kids due to its huge 3D kingdoms, diverse environments, fluid sandbox and entertaining gameplay. The new installment of the Mario series includes a ton of items and costumes for Mario to collect and a new way of playing by controlling object, characters and animals (dogs, dinosaurs, etc.) with your hat.
When DOOM was first announced for Nintendo Switch we were genuinely blown away. We never imagined such a bloody, demanding shooter would makes its way onto Nintendo’s console. But here it is, and despite some visual compromises, it’s a great experience.
Unsurprisingly, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe plays exactly like Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. Thanks to Switch’s fantastic different form factors, multiplayer Mario Kart has literally never been as fun nor as instant. It’s 100% an essential purchase.
This special enhanced edition of the Wii U smash was one of the first big tests for the Switch. How would a game initially built to be played exclusively on a console strapped to a TV translate to a system made to be taken anywhere? The answer: about as well as anybody could expect. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe collected every scrap of bonus content for one of the best games of the decade, added a nostalgic return to a classic battle mode, and made all of it perfectly portable thanks to the Switch’s unique capabilities. If anybody was worried that Breath of the Wild would be a one-hit wonder for the Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe gave them hope.
Game all my life, Atari, nintendo(s), sega,…playstation(s). This is where Nintendo won me back. The hybrid console idea is just brilliant!! At first I was skeptical, but I absolutely love the Switch after I was able to finish Zelda Breath of the Wild (120 hours over 3 months) here, there, and everywhere. Get off work, play, cook, play, help help daughter with homework, chill at in-laws and play, etc., life of a gaming dad… but the sleep mode of the Switch works flawlessly! The Switch is the only console that allows me to do that! And Zelda BOTW is the best game of its kind in years! So far I got Zelda, Arms, Splattoon2, Rabbid+Mario, and some indie games. Haven’t had so much fun since the original nintendo from 30 years ago.

Born out of Harvest Moon, it makes perfect sense that Stardew Valley fits right at home on the Switch. The farming life sim is wonderfully open ended, letting you forge your own country path with fishing, fighting, farming, and falling in love. Additionally, being able to take advantage of the Switch’s sleep mode helps take some of the pressure off of not being able to save in the middle of a day, even if a few other bugs in the port are still waiting to be squashed here. – Tom Marks
Honestly, I was a little worried about Sonic Mania. SEGA and Sonic Team have burnt me in the past, perhaps one too many times. I needn’t have worried though. Sonic Mania is a stunning return to form for the blue hedgehog. While playing on the Switch doesn’t really put Nintendo’s console through its technical paces, the crisp sprites and bright colours of Sonic really help show off just how vibrant and crisp the Switch’s 720p display is. It’s perfect portable gaming magic.
Want to play games with other people? You can do this right out of the box, actually, by turning each of the Joy-Con on its side and using those as individual gamepads. It’s a less-than-great solution — they’re tiny, uncomfortable, and easily dropped.
Major retailers such as Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy and Target all have buy pages for the Nintendo Switch. (Currently, Amazon has stock of the Switch in Gray and Neon Blue/Red and is the only store that can deliver it on time for Christmas).
Nintendo Switch bundles with additional games are a mixed bag at the moment, but this is one of the cheapest ones. Don’t worry if the Neon Red/Blue version is a bit loud for you, you can get this bundle in grey for the same price too.
The same price applies to games like “Skylanders Imaginators,” though there are a small handful of lower-priced games (“Snipperclips” is $19.99, for instance). But let’s be honest: You’re going to want “Zelda.”
Very compact gaming system that puts the older and bulkier systems to shame. The system was easy to set up, so easy my kids did it by themselves. The portability of being able to click in the controller sliders and take the game screen with you is very clever. The only negative I have is that the battery in the portable component only lasts about 3.5 hours. Excellent video quality on my 75 inch tv and the audio is seamless. It’s too bad that Nintendo didn’t bundle this console with a game so that the consumer doesn’t need to purchase a game as well as the console separately Overall I highly recommend this product, the kids and adults in my household enjoy playing it.
Created by Rockstar, LA Noire is a 1940s detective title which puts players in the smart leather shoes of Cole Phelps. As Phelps, you’ll dive into the seedy underbelly of LA, solving a variety of cases across the LAPD’s Homicide, Vice and Arson divisions.
But then there’s what other developers are bringing to the table, and there’s simply so much to choose from. From the smaller indie titles like Super Meat Boy, Human Fall Flat and Overcooked to the big budget ports like FIFA 18, Skyrim and Minecraft.
Skyrim might be a game that’s six years old, but the portability of the Nintendo Switch makes it feel fresh again. What was once an exclusively home console and PC experience can now be played on your commute and there’s no denying that holding the wild world of Skyrim in the palm of your hand is exhilarating.

This charming curiosity turns the always-dull world of golf into a top-notch role-playing game. It’s pretty much just what that sounds like: “battles” are golf matches instead of fights, you earn experience points and money that can be used to improve your golf game, etc. It’s not just the novelty of the concept or the classic videogame golf action that makes us recommend this one, but the smart, funny script, which features some of the best writing in games this year.

Stop giggling, that’s what these are actually called! A number of talented folks out there have started making and selling simple cloth covers for the front part of Nintendo Switch Docks, adding a little bit of style and protection to your setup. There are a bunch of different designs, but more importantly these $17 Dock Socks keep the Switch display from being accidentally scratched by the plastic edges of the Switch Dock.
This has been one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch so far and an absolute must for Mario and platforming fans. Like Zelda below though, this being a first-party Nintendo title, it’s taking forever to go down in price. It’s slowly happening though, so we’ve rounded up the cheapest Super Mario Odyssey prices for you below. If you’re not getting this game in a bundle, we’d strongly advise picking it up separately as soon as possible.
Console bundles have been getting a lot of coverage lately, with Microsoft and Sony in particular offering major deals on Xbox One and PSVR bundles this month.
