Graphically it’s what I expected, it’s ugly and low resolution, a lot of pop, but I’m OK with it ,it’s to be expected, it’s definitelyGraphically it’s what I expected, it’s ugly and low resolution, a lot of pop, but I’m OK with it ,it’s to be expected, it’s definitely playable especially portable. What I’m not OK with is multiplayer performance, it’s very very bad, I never had any issues with online games, I have very good Internet speed.the problem is the cars clip into each other and there’s a lot of issues with control because of lag, you basically can’t control your car - it steers in directions you’re not steering. It kills all enjoyment, so I would say it’s only a single player game

Wreckfest is one of the best Switch ports ever with great gameplay and visuals and a lot of content available, both for single player and online races. Just a few performance issues and adaptation to portable mode tarnishes a great racing game.

If you’re looking for the ultimate Wreckfest experience on your big screen, you’ll likely want to look at other versions of the game over this one. But if you’re looking for a version you can take with you, this Switch port of Wreckfest is more than respectable enough to suit the job. For those completely new to the game, you’ll find this to be an excellent choice if you’re looking for a somewhat more destructive racing experience than the norm.
