How does XCOM 2 run on Nintendo Switch?

XCOM is a long-running turn-based strategy series in which soldiers and aliens duke it out for control of Earth. XCOM 2 Collection brings together all of the content that was in the sequel at launch, along with all of the subsequent DLC packs and the War of the Chosen expansion.

The core gameplay of XCOM 2 is exactly the same, no matter the platform. All of the missions, character classes, weapons, and features make the jump to the Switch version, so you’re really not missing out on anything.

The key drawbacks of the Switch version are performance and resolution, and neither is handled very well. The game frequently hitches and slows during play, despite the target frame rate of 30 frames per second. This happens during busy scenes, as well as during calmer moments, when there shouldn’t be as much of a load on the system’s hardware. Scrolling through your home base to recruit and upgrade potential units, for instance, often feels sluggish. The same goes for selecting and giving orders during a mission.

These issues don’t technically impact gameplay, as the XCOM series doesn’t require quick reaction times. But scrolling through the menus and the interface is unpleasant, and it negatively impacts the experience of playing the game.

Even with the visual and performance issues mentioned above, XCOM 2 is still pretty playable on Switch. It’s a fantastic tactical strategy game, and you could probably adjust to the shortcomings if you’re a die-hard fan who absolutely needs a portable version of XCOM 2.
