Switch version much better than expected
Not sure if this review will be lumped up with the other consoles or PC version, so I'm gonna clarify that this is a short review of the Switch version. I have owned and played this game on Steam for quite some time now and it's great, big fan. When this came out for the Switch, I couldn't be more excited.
As most people with a little more than basic understanding of game hardware would know, I expected this version to be quite a downgrade. There are some videos that mock this version and I almost bought into that, but as it is a physical version on a reasonable price, I decided to get it.
I couldn't be happier. The graphics are great, frame rate not outstanding but stable and overall, it's Dead by Daylight and it plays as such. As a killer main, you will struggle playing with a controller, but I happen to be a controller nut and I own the Hori TAC G1 controller/mouse combination which I already used on PC, so I combined it with the Magic NS adapter and voila, now I can play with a mouse again and it's great. You could do the same for survivor, but controller is fine for that, in my opinion.
It does take a long time to find a match as a killer, as a survivor, not so much. Overall, I would definitely recommend the Switch version if you're a fan and ever wants to play on the go. They are also constantly updating this version and much improvement has been made. Also, DLC characters such as Leatherface have indeed come into the game, but Freddy is missing at this current time for whatever reason. Anyway, enough said, I love this game and I'm quite happy with the Switch version, which has exceeded my expectations.Read full review
