If you’re a Switch fan like me, you’ve probably learnt to be wary of shooter ports. Not to discredit DOOM’s technical marvel, but even there the framerate and motion blur can sometimes combine to create an image which is, well, unintelligible.
Payday 2 doesn’t fare much better either, with some sluggish performance essentially ruining the pace of the game.
With Fortnite, an online shooter, a dodgy online experience on the Switch could ruin absolutely everything, and given it was the same day the game launched, I expected things to be overloaded and slow. But actually, it’s really pretty good.
I decided to play in the least convenient manner possible. In handheld mode, in a different room to my router. Would the Switch really offer a decent Fortnite experience you can sit in any room to play? Yeah. It does. It really does.
