10 Nintendo Switch Ports That Aren't Worth Your Money

There's plenty of great ports on the Switch, but these ones in particular are worth avoiding.

The Nintendo Switch isn't exactly a powerhouse. Sure, that's not at all a selling point of the system and it certainly hasn't hurt its reputation, but it's increasingly became a tradition of Nintendo consoles that they struggle with bigger, bolder experiences compared to Sony and Microsoft's hardware.

Somewhat surprisingly, that hasn't stopped a number of big name studios from trying their best to bring as many titles as they can to the Switch with, for the most part, some quality ports. The likes of Doom, The Witcher 3 and Elder Scrolls: Skyrim have all come across largely unscathed and running better than they have any right to, a testament to the hard work that goes into adapting to a less powerful system architecture.

And yet, there's still a fair few games that haven't quite got the job done. Whether it's slow load times, poor frame rates, blurry textures or just downright laziness, a number of Switch ports have struggled in their quest to bring the same experience to Nintendo's system. So to save you the time and the all important financial costs, here's the games you're best to leave on the shelf despite how tempting they may seem.
