Review: Bioshock – The Collection (Switch)

A completely masterful game series brings new life to the Nintendo Switch!

We have already reviewed Bioshock: The Collection here at senses.se four years ago, when the game was released Playstation 4 and Xbox One so this review will be more about the experience of playing the steampunk classic on the Nintendo Switch.

First off, I am very pleased that when you put in the cartridge (or if you downloaded the game digitally) it will not be a game icon, but three. You can choose directly if you want to cheat Bioshock: Remastered, Bioshock 2: Remastered or the latest in the series Bioshock: Infinite. I got to test the physical release and a small update was then downloaded to each game. It was able to run without updating as well, so it was probably just something small that needed to be fixed.

I start playing in docked mode, on the big screen, and it all feels as good as it always has. All three games have unbelievably cool environments and all three stories are engaging and good. These are the heated versions of the games so they look better than they did when I tricked them into my Xbox 360.

Then I lifted mine Nintendo Switch out of his station to see how it all worked in portable mode, on the small screen. The console is based on the fact that in portable mode the processor power goes down a bit and the resolution becomes lower for the batteries to pall to the maximum. What I notice right away is that the loading times get considerably longer and it feels like the console has to fight a little. But once you get back into the track, everything flows as it should.

What it is a little worse is that Bioshock: The Collection has a lot of dark and illuminated places and they sometimes become almost impossible to see clearly portable location. Is it bright in the room or if you are outdoors then you can hardly see anything at all on the screen. Then it is the same problem as always when a game is ported to Switch and the developers always forget about the portable mode – everything becomes so extremely small and sometimes difficult to see.

Sometimes it becomes incredibly dark and very difficult to see in portable mode.

In summary, I love it Bioshockseries and although there are small, technical flaws that I mentioned in the above, this is a sunny must. To have the opportunity to take with you Bioshock: The Collection Wherever you go is an incredibly nice plus. So put yourself in a dark corner of the summer cottage, caravan or wherever you are this summer; put on a pair of cozy headphones and relive the steampunk world under the sea!
