Resident Evil 5 and 6 on Switch: A Comprehensive Review

​Resident Evil 5 and 6 are not as popular and loved as the other games in the franchise. However, for some fans, the titles were quite intriguing. For example, when Capcom announced they were made available for Nintendo Switch, a number of players reported excitement.

Both games aim 30fps on Switch, and except for intense scenes abounding of enemies and various effects, they mostly hit the spot. Things get wild when you start battling larger groups or enter vast areas packed with numerous detailed objects.

Just a Few Advantages

According to a fan who tested the games on Switch, the experience was not that enjoyable as it is when played on PlayStation 4 or PC. The games look blurry when docked, and the textures on some elements don’t hold up at all times.

Even so, one advantage of Resident Evil 5 and 6 on Nintendo Switch have over consoles, and PC is the possibility to play the games on the move. When played in handheld mode, the performance issues were less observable, even though the framerate still encountered some sporadic glitches.

You can play RE 5 and 6 using motion controls as well, aiming the controllers at your Switch or TV to target.

A large number of players believe the best way to play Resident Evil 4 was on the Wii because it utilized motion controls, which enabled a more accurate aiming. It, however, doesn’t feel the same for Resident Evil 5 and 6. The motion aiming seemed buoyant when attempting to hit rivals, and it often leads to overshooting the targets.

There is also possible to play co-op online or through split-screen. Side models such as The Mercenaries or versus mode are incorporated with every game as well; these are Resident Evil 5 and 6 in their integrity.

A great thing when playing in handheld mode is the fact that the smaller screen has the Switch ports’ lower resolution structures and shadows. Again, the greatest thing about the game is that it can be played on the move.

Here is the released trailer for Nintendo Switch.


A Bit of Both Worlds

Resident Evil 5 is still a game that has some controversially racist depictions of African people, and which seems like four bad action movies put together.

Resident Evil 6 is an incredibly action-concentrated play for a Resident Evil game. The title packs terrible cover shooting mechanics, and it has too many quick-time events. Bottom line, if you want some decent Resident Evil action on the Nintendo Switch, there are a lot of other choices, such as Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Revelations.

When it comes to visual effects, these games aren’t doing so good on a big TV, more so when compared to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One ports launched a few years ago. There are a few performance issues that might be too bothersome for some players.

However, if it’s not a big deal to see some framerate dips and a few unattractive textures, or if you mainly utilize the Switch as a portable console, these are sufficiently good ports of two games numerous people don’t like.
