TOP 10 Nintendo Switch Best Graphics Games

10. Pokémon Sword / Shield

Arguably the most popular handheld RPG series ever, Pokemon Sword and Shield prove the franchise is as strong as it’s ever been. Taking the adventure to a pseudo-London open world, it’s one of, if not the prettiest Pokemon experiences ever. Couple this with a great soundtrack, as well as all the classic battles and exploration fun, and you’ve got one of the definitive Pokemon generations.

9. LA Noire

There’s a reason LA Noire remains relevant nearly 10 years after it first released. You play as Cole Phelps, a detective working on increasingly big cases in 1940s Los Angeles. With revolutionary facial graphics, you can analyse the slightest tells to determine if someone’s telling the truth or ‘porkies’. Couple this with one of the most unique open worlds ever created, and you’ve got one good looking game.

8. Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11 is predictably incredible. You can expect the usual affair of tight, fluid mechanics and brutal fatalities that are just as wince-inducing on the tablet screen as they are in docked mode. The X-ray view of the more violent attacks pops with all the gruesome beauty we’ve come to expect and justifies MK11’s position on this list alone.

7. Dragon Ball Fighter Z

The Dragon Ball series has inspired some great fighting games over the years, but FighterZ has got to top them all. With gorgeous animations that make you feel like you’re playing through an episode of the anime, deep but accessible movesets and an original story written by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama, there’s plenty for both the hardcore and filthy casuals to enjoy with this entry into the franchise.

6. Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Worthy of entry on this list for giving us the best looking versions of some of the best games of all time, Super Mario 3D All-Stars is one you won’t want to miss. Celebrating the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., the collection features the killer triple threat of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy. Each title has never looked better, and the timeless gameplay means it can now be enjoyed by players young and old.

5. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Crash is back… again, as the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy gets ported over to the Switch. Giving all 3 original Crash Bandicoot games a fresh coat of paint, this is sure to provide a shot of nostalgia for any 90s gamer who whiled away the hours in front of the PS1 instead of socialising and making friends! A complete rebuild, rather than a mere upscale, our favourite marsupial has never played and looked so good.

4. NBA 2K21

It still boggles the mind that they can squeeze a full sports game into a tiny, portable console, but by Jove Nintendo finds a way! NBA 2K21 is the latest entry in the basketball sim series, offering fast-paced, accessible gameplay, as well as full career and online modes to keep you slam dunking all year. For this entry, the graphics have been tweaked so that facial animations are a lot more natural, and the ball moves around much more believably. This all makes for arguably the best-looking sports game on the Switch. 

3. Doom

Consider the rampant disembowelling found in the Switch port of Doom to satiate your sadistic streak. The frenetic, non-stop action feels right at home on the Switch, as you mow down wave after wave of hellspawn. It offers some of the most creative kill animations we’ve ever seen, each looking good enough that you’ll think blood’s splattering through your screen!

2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe how good this game is. Never have we played an open-world game that’s so immersive, so deep and just so gosh darn fun to play. Every aspect of the game is flawless, and the fact it works on a tablet is nothing short of witchcraft. It may not have the most realistic graphics on the console, but I’d defy anyone to find a more beautiful digital world.

1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

How they managed to fit a game the size of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt  - arguably one of the biggest and best games of this console generation - into a portable console is a minor miracle. Sure the textures might not pop like that do on a PC, but the entire game functions perfectly on the Switch, and the controls translate just as well to handheld mode. Long live the Switcher!
