    Seriously, I can’t recall ever seeing the game hitch up or slow down, whether docked or undocked, which is a huge plus.

    Diablo III Eternal Collection is a fantastic dungeon crawler and one that feels right at home on Nintendo’s console. Blizzard’s modern-day classic still shines brightly six years after its initial release on PC and now thanks to the Switch’s portable functionality, your incessant quest for better loot will be able to continue wherever you are. Could this be the best version of Diablo III yet? I’ll just say being able to slay monsters on my commute certainly makes a strong case.

    Diablo III lands on the Nintendo Switch, under the name of an Eternal Collection that brings two expansions to the original game. In what is without a doubt a magnificent adaptation of a monument of a game, players will find an immense challenge that will be accessible for beginners and compelling for veterans, with content that will easily reach over one hundred hours of gameplay, a top notch multiplayer component and the added handheld character of the Nintendo Switch. One of the finest games of the year to come out on Nintendo's console.

    This compilation of Diablo III and its expansions underscores how far the gothic hack n' slash series has fallen.

    Having previously owned the PC and PS4 edition of Diablo 3 I must admit that I am literally perplexed at how incredibly well this game runs onHaving previously owned the PC and PS4 edition of Diablo 3 I must admit that I am literally perplexed at how incredibly well this game runs on Nintendo's little machine. It also looks and plays wonderful in undocked mode and is quite frankly a perfect game for gaming on the go.

    Unless you already are bored to death with Diablo 3, you cannot go wrong with this game.

    Let's get this out of the way... the Switch is simply not the graphical peer of its other console and PC versions. And I would contend itLet's get this out of the way... the Switch is simply not the graphical peer of its other console and PC versions. And I would contend it actually looks WORSE when docked than in handheld. There are definitely some rough edges graphically.

    Another problem is the lack of cross-play, but that was something I knew going in, so I can't be TOO irked about it. Still would have liked to carry my PC characters and jump in, though.

    That said, I still think it has quickly become my platform of choice for the game. Diablo 3 wasn't exactly known for its stunning visuals to begin with, and if you're coming from previous games in the series, you shouldn't be terribly turned off by it.

    Because most importantly, it keeps game performance up. It didn't matter how crazy the action got, I don't recall even the slightest hiccup in frame rate or processing. Blizzard clearly valued frame rate over fidelity, and it was absolutely the right choice.

    Meanwhile, coming from the PC version, I was honestly surprised how much smoother and more intuitive this game was to play from a controller over the PC's mouse and keyboard controls. It felt infinitely more natural, and I haven't felt compelled to touch the PC version in the last week.

    If you don't have Diablo 3 yet, this is the version you should get. Even if you HAVE another version, this is worth double dipping for.

    Don't buy the hype and the fanboy 10/10 scores. There is nothing about this which is 10 out of 10 except for portability. It is objectivelyDon't buy the hype and the fanboy 10/10 scores. There is nothing about this which is 10 out of 10 except for portability. It is objectively the worst modern console version of Diablo 3: 960p while docked, frame rate drops, particle effects and enemy density at low (if not lowest) settings, online coop behind Nintendo's half-assed Switch Online service, the list goes on.

    First Skyrim, now Diablo - 6 year old ports that are the worst versions of each but charging full $60 MSRP and inexplicably getting 10/10 reviews simply because you can play them "on the go". There's more to playing a game then being able to play it on my lunch break and I'm not willing to sacrifice quality for portability. Limited portability at that, given the Switch's lousy battery life.

    If you already have this on PS4, XBO or PC, there's no reason to spend yet another $60 on this.
