What happens when our resident "PC Master Race" gamer gets hands on Diablo III: Eternal Collection for Nintendo Switch? Beautiful things, friends, beautiful things.
It appears that ever since the hybrid console from Nintendo was released, a common question for all the games is "When is Switch coming?" With a long list of successful ports already on the portable platform, including Greats such as Wolfenstein II and Skyrim, the thrill immediately experienced when Blizzard revealed that Diablo III . The experience would also make the way.
This is the fourth platform I've played this title, with Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC as the first. Usually my go-to PC, so when I sat down to try it out for myself, I knew it would be good, but I still expected to keep the "PC Master Race" hautiness. Boy, was I wrong and honest? Happy for that
This port was amazing. It was floating, the mechanics were steady, the progress was easy to follow, portability added a whole new layer of immersion. For Diablo lovers this is the port and an experience that is really worth double theft.
Diablo III: The eternal collection does not make Technical offer a lot of "new" in terms of the game other than Legend of Zelda exclusive equipment such as Ganondorf cosmetic armor sets, Tri-Force portrait frame, Cucco pet , and Echoes of the Mask cosmetic wings. The ability to play on the move is nice, in a handheld is even better. The ability to play with friends on the spot through Joy-Cons is also phenomenal and is a game shifter for the professional conventions.
Looking back to former ports like Skyrim, Wolfenstein II, DOOM. .. The transition from megaplatform to hybrid console was shockingly smooth. Diablo III was no different and ̵
The way the controls shed the game are incredibly fluid, making it so much easier to jump back to a Rift with the favorite head. I ran away from my usual Demon Hunter role and decided to go Monk instead. This change did little to faint my encouragement in spite llet monk's OP nature made it even better. Diablo III was intended for Switch and portability, accessibility and successful integration with the hardware supports the term of a thousand percent. Because of this, this is a port that will have a long life of playability.
Offline Games and Specs
Another aspect that I thoroughly enjoyed about this port is that if you take the game offline, you will not lose any of your XP, loot or progress made. Take it up in the air with your journey, take it on a road trip – anywhere! The time you enter will not be for nothing, and the nifty sky save feature makes it even easier to pick up exactly where you left.
Talking about travel let's talk specifications for a second. Unlocked, Eternal Collection will run at 720p while the docked version will maintain a 960p experience with a steady 60fps. Although it seems that there is a remarkable gap there, it was hardly noticeable while playing. I often switched between anchored and outlets to play with another player and give the poor battery some rest and I did not find joy or encouragement in one way or another.
